Good design is not just about aesthetic aspect. Instead of just placing beautiful objects in space. It’s about how each element works together in space to change our lives. So design isn’t just about beauty this is a clever game between all the elements in space. There are some design principles that are very important part in creating a great design when you know the principles of basic interior design You can change any space to look and feel amazing and unique you can sense how it all feels cohesive you can feel how it all works in unity!
You can achieve that effect in your own home by following these principles clearly you can pair that knowledge with practice and experimentation on the way you create a space perfect 6 The following principles are key to creating a space that invites family and friends would love to spend time in but don’t fear I’ll do my best to explain it in a simple way! So let’s get started! The most important element that anchored the design and added interest is emphasis! Also known as focal point should be something of interest to see something colorful or interesting textures and visuals of a particular item to make a visual impact. Imagine a great painting that lives on a fireplace or wall with a thick paint color or covered with wallpaper to draw attention in your living room. As you walk into space and your attention is focused on certain elements, such as a large painting over a fireplace or a bold accent wall this might be the focus option of the room and the principle here is emphasis. A room where everything becomes as important as it will appear scattered or boring.
You need your anchors need a focal point to break up space stupidity. In architecture terms in my home, I obviously have a wall that could be a potential focal point and I chose it for various reasons: because it has a double height. I can see the wall from some point in my house even from the second floor and this is a brighter room in my house because of its large window I decided to stand out by putting a large painting alive on top of my TV stand to emphasize the scale of the wall and add contrast between the wall and the painting, creating a visual impact. I think this works really well because when people come to my house their eyes always go to that wall first! In interior design, it is important to place elements that are contrary to each other by color, shape, texture, material or scale remember it is conflicting draw.
This design principle can be achieved by various ways of pairing the light with dark elements with a small element with large elements or textured surfaces with untextured surface. When contrast is applied to a space it can give life and character to any room. So dynamic, include high contrast colors, textures, patterns, don’t be afraid, just mix and match! I like high contrast! I achieve contrast in the various ways inside my space despite the color and texture of the pillow, I created a high contrast between the light colors of my common space wall with the dark color of my furniture as well between some transparent objects with a dense one. The point here is to mix and match so be dynamic because high contrast is crucial to creating a bold space!
It can be strange to consider a room as rhythmic but like the rhythm of music in design is everything about creating repetition patterns and contrasts to create a visual interest. It’s like a combination of musical notes and silence that forms the rhythm but visually. Repetition will create a flow that moves the eyes of the audience around the space. Duplicate elements, colors, shapes or patterns to bind a shared design. You can achieve this by using the same color or shape at different intervals. The goal is to move your eyes around the room. For example, you can build your rhythm by using colors on pillows, taking them in paintings, and more on the carpet. This repetition will help bring your eyes around the room and this will help you balance and unify the space. I was able to build the rhythm by using colors on pillows, taking them in paintings, and again in the Ottoman. The balance is the same visual weight distribution.
Adding emphasis with contrast and rhythm to your space, you will have a sense of balance. In design, balance creates a feeling of balance. It’s all about liking or approaching heavy visual objects. Balance is a visual weight distribution of color objects, textures into spaces to create a feeling of stability and unity. Traditional or formal spaces require a symmetrical balance where space is divided evenly into two sides of the mirror to each other. Asymmetric balance: The visual weights of lines, colors, shapes, and textures are balanced without proper duplication. Personally I prefer asymmetric balance because it can be more complex and interesting. Have you ever been in a small room where furniture beats the space? If so, you understand the importance of scale.
Scale relates to the size of the object in space. The proportion is about the relationship between the two elements that how the object relates to the overall context. For example, you have a large sofa and next to it you place a small side table. Maybe the proportion of the goods are wrong. So you can’t just consider the size of the room and the elements when you’re decorating you have to be careful with the size of each item and the relationship of each other. Harmony in interior design is made when all elements act together to create an integrated, cohesive composition that means all of your design elements are linked. Harmony refers to a pleasant relationship between parts of the composition. They may match the same theme of aesthetic style or mood. The important take away is that each of the different sections seems to be a shared part in some way even if it is not identical to anything else. To achieve unity and harmony in your space it is important to define the aesthetic style because this way you have the parameters of color, texture and shape to ensure a cohesive atmosphere. All of those principles are unified to design a spectacular space those principles are an important element when it comes to creating any composition even in other art such as painting, photography or architecture their guide to making the cohesive atmosphere of each of these principles work together to tell our brains that we are in a beautiful, comfortable and enjoyable space not only for our eyes but also for our souls.
