What does it mean to design someones home?
Well first, let’s take one step back. What is a home? A place where we keep our loved ones safe. We can hide away from the world in our homes when we need to. More importantly, it is a place where you can express yourself, and we have an emotional connection to our homes because of this.
Interior Design is the art and science of understanding peoples behavior to create functional spaces within a building.
Why is that important? Because we all live and work somewhere and these spaces affect not only our bodies, our minds, our energy levels, and even our productivity levels, which directly affect our income levels. Good Interior design meets all of these needs, whereas bad interior design meets none.
So how do we react to design? Everything that is man-made is designed. From the shoes you wear to the buildings you walk into. But you don’t notice good design, you simply use it. You don’t feel it, you just feel content in the space. And it looks nice, therefore you like it.
Bad Interior Design is like a pebble in your shoe. When you have a pebble in your shoe, its all you can think about; where can you sit down and take care of it? Bad design is like the pebble in the shoe- its annoying and you notice it all the time. It’s annoying to have to move around furniture in order to sit down. It’s annoying to not be able to reach the top shelf. It’s annoying to have to bend uncomfortably low to reach a sink basin.
