The ART of Interior Design - Interior Design #1

Interior design: the art and process to create a room into another whole realm.

A place I can escape to , allow my thoughts to wonder and ponder about my dreams.

It is my own little world.

Which to me = LOVE!
It is the pleasure of transforming an area of space to the likes, mood or even culture of oneself.

The art of interior design is to add a personal touch and style to a room. It is something you can claim your own just like an artists' signature on a completed painting.

So, you can guarantee my obsession with unique interior, something out of the ordinary and a
100% wow factor.
I absolutely adore strange finds where i can revamp by sanding, painting or changing it's fabric. That is how you personalize and modify it to your own unique taste while at the same time keeping it's ethnicity and vintage feel making it a timeless and priceless item for others to be baffled by.

Something else that always fascinates me and therefore adds a different spin to a room are paintings. Paintings and art works are timeless pieces of interior perfect for setting the scene in a room.

You want to modernize the room? Add abstract artworks with sharp angles and bright colours.

How modernistic and trend setting are these colourful abstracted paintings?
Want to travel back in time? Perhaps mahogany office furniture and Victorian paintings?

Not only historical and timeless but also it is rich in antiquity.

Nonetheless, Canvas' of all sorts are extremely vital to any setting. It adds a characterized twist due to the type of painting or the painter's themselves.

For example, your painter may be a gloomy character who is troubled, that adds a mystery to a room.

You may think, who wants that kind of feel to any room? :s

You can make it work by adding a gloomy painting to a bright coloured or completely white room. This causes contrast and mixed feelings, which all human beings go through. It portrays humanity and the world we live in.

How surreal would these images be against a white or colourful room? The contrast is almost mind shattering!

Be open to new and peculiar ideas in order to experience the feelings through others. That is what makes something unique and fascinating!

On countless occasions I get the
"Where did you get that?"
The rush I get from answering,
"I made it!" is what makes the flea market rampages and craft store runs all worthwhile.

Next post I will discuss the art of making simple yet unique
Calligraphy a pop to your room! Not only will it bring personalization to a room it will add richness of culture that will leave others in awe.
So embrace in other languages it will be the solace to a bland room..
