Idea To Design... And Beyond

Great interior design is often a mark of one’s unique, individual tastes shining through in the best possible way. It’s not about following someone else’s rules for what looks great. The design process is all about turning an individual’s vision into a reality with proven best practices.

How do you use the design process to transform your living spaces with your individual taste?

1. What’s The Function?

Each space in your home is used for a different purpose. From entertaining guests to simple TV watching, functionality is going to comunicate precisely how these activities can be optimized with interior design elements.

2. What Kind Of Energy Are You Looking For?

Energy is part of the design process. If you want your house to feel like a sanctuary, go for color schemes that are soft and natural, like beige and earth tones. If you want a certain room to feel happy or high-energy, go for bright, bold colors.

3. What Furniture Configuration Addresses Function And Energy?

Grounding a furniture layout with a focal point, such as a fireplace or picturesque window can help add interest and energy to a space. Interior Designers often use furniture placement to create a welcoming relax-with-a-book environment or an entertainment setting with careful planning of flow and intimate spaces.

4. What Personal Touches Play Up To Your Personal Style?

After furniture placement, the next step of the design process is the addition of accessories. Lighting and art pieces are personal touches that can reflect your interests and make a room feel tailored to your individual style. Want cozy? Choose soft lighting and effortless textiles. What glamour? Class up a room by going for that extravagant chandelier.

5. What Fabrics Are Going To Elevate Each Space In Your Home?

Upholstery, especially curtains, drapes or even rugs, are going to transform a space rather drastically. Match fabric in shades of the same color family you are choosing for a room, if you want a more soothing feel. When you want to energize a room, go for contrasting colors.

6. What Are Final Ways To Add A Personal Touch To A Room?

Small, simple interior design elements truly add a lot of impact. Scour flea markets, pick something up when you travel, invest in local art or get crafty – these are ways to make your space speak to your individuality.

The design process involves a lot of decision-making on your behalf. That’s why it’s always best to consult with an interior designer when you’re unsure of the best way to configure a room or what kind of statement piece is going to work best for a specific space.

With the right guidance, at the end of the design process, you are able to step back and see that your individualized vision transformed into something truly wonderful.
