BASIC PRINCIPLES OF INTERIOR DESIGN
Colour is more than just being visually beautiful or appealing, it also influences the entire mood and feeling of the space that you are decorating.
Superior lighting is essential to any space, whether its creator is natural, man-made, or a combination of both. When choosing lighting, we must think about factors like the colours of the light, the light intensity or whether the light should be dimmed.
Patterns are the intentional repetition of forms, lines, or other design elements. Patterns usually appear on wallpaper or fabrics, but can also pop up anywhere in the home. While patterns can add life and motion to rooms and spaces, too many clashing patterns can start to look chaotic, so we will need to tread lightly when choosing them
Space is the heart of every design or decorators decision. There are two basic types of space to consider, the length and width of a room, and the space which covers height. For example, the length and width of a room is important when thinking of carpets or rugs, and the height of a space shall need to be considered before adding new shelving or furniture.
The visual shape or configuration of artwork, furniture, or other sculptures, and even the rooms themselves can take on natural and curvy or abstract and geometric angles that feature sharp, lines and edges.
Lines can be up-and-down, side-to-side, or express motions, like zig-zags or curlicues, while vertical lines are expressive and bold, dynamic lines can follow their own set of rules, adding fun and exciting touches.
Texture is the way something feels. This can mean the way something feels to the touch, or the sense it gives when simply observing it. Careful consideration of texture is especially important in parts of the home that are contacted frequently, like flooring.
