A Few Design Theories

May 3, 2013 9:54:17 AM

In any type of design or artistic application you are faced with planning out how the final outcome will look. The process of planning and choosing how the room turns out is in fact, designing. General patterns emerge from looking and comparing various forms of artistic expression.

Okay the process is pretty simple and fun. First enlist someone to help you measure. Measure the length and width of the room in a straight line. Also measure the height of the walls from floor to ceiling. Multiply the length of each wall by the height of the wall. This will be your square footage for the walls.

2013 Trends in Interior Design

Apr 26, 2013 10:11:46 AM

I have scoured the sources looking for design trends. What are the designer’s doing? In modern interior design I see a lot of animal prints, creams, beiges, black, white, and different tones of gray. This year it is all about varying textures of warmth vs. cool. Warmth is seen with textured fabric, neutral hues, and wood. On the other end of the spectrum is the cool side in modern design. Along with blacks, whites, there are shades of grey and darker shaded purples. The modern design color scheme of coarse goes with the personality of the design, the desired outcome and emotions the designer wants to evoke in the people using the room.

Designing With Your Pet In Mind

Apr 22, 2013 9:46:41 AM

Do you have indoor cats or dogs? Well if you do then you have some unique problems that only pet owners can understand. I have had indoor cats and have envisioned building them something special so that they can climb and exercise and still maintain a level of fitness that they would if they were outdoors too. My cats have stayed indoors more as they aged. A special ceiling design for cats was actually in the movie, The Princess Diaries, Directed by Gary Marshall that came out in 2001. I ran into this little story of an elderly couple who custom built walkways in their home at ceiling length. A fabulous idea if you have the time and talent to build something like that. Something like this can always be done by someone handy. Take a look at this: http://www.shine.yahoo.com/animal-nation/cats-house-couple-redesigns-home-cats-mind.202300439.html .

Okay, you want to spruce up your living space. How are you supposed to know what colors to use without any experience? Sure, if your familiar with artistic expression and have been exposed to many different settings or have taken art classes then you have picked up some skills to help you. But what about the rest of us who want to have our home look spectacular and pleasing to not only our eyes, but our visitors as well?

So you want to redecorate but you don’t know where to start? The first thing is to know what style you want. If you are not sure, browse through design magazines such as Elle Décor or Architectural Digest. What do you like? Do you like Modern, Contemporary, Eclectic, Traditional, or Shabby Chic? Put together a collage of pictures that peak your interest. Decide what specifically you like within these designs.

Is your environment neat and tidy with everything in it’s place? Or is there a little clutter here, a little there. In my opinion, our minds need organization and neatness in order for us to function at full capacity. Just like our thoughts need to be purged and categorized into their proper place so do our things.
