The Use of Color to Express Personality in Your Interior Design and Decorating

Nothing is more personal than color! Nothing admits of expressing your personality with clearer or more unmistakable attraction than color. The primary and secondary colors are six in all. Three colors per category. The primary colors are yellow, red, and blue. The secondary colors, which are combinations of the primary colors, are green, orange, and violet.

Color is a very deep and complex subject from the following the viewpoints… scientifically, emotionally, visually, spiritually, and intellectually. It touches every aspect of our lives with meaning and symbolism. Therefore, it is helpful to understand color and how it impacts your life. Your understanding of color does not have to be at the PhD level; just a good, solid, basic understanding will do.

First and foremost, color has its source in light, and natural light comes from the sun. Therefore, color is how you light it! Color is perceived based on the source of light that is used to illuminate objects, and the way color is absorbed and reflected back to your eye.

Color can be described in three terms… Hue, Value, and Intensity.

Hue means this name of the color. Value means the relative lightness or darkness of a color. Intensity means how dull or vivid the color is.

Yellow looks most like the sun, as it expresses the quality that the sun seems to give out. With light and warmth from the sun, we are cheered as well as made more light-hearted. Yellow in a room will produce similar feelings under normal conditions.

Red suggests fire and blood. It is associated with activity, aggression, and passion. It is interesting to know that the aggressive and advancing quality of red makes a room in which it is used seem smaller in appearance.

Blue has an opposite effect from red. Its reactions are restraint, coolness, repose, and distance. By association one thinks of a clear blue sky and the cool breezes from the blue waters of the ocean.

Green is the union of yellow and blue and expresses the qualities of both. Nothing could be more restful, soothing and agreeable than the cheering and cooling effects of a seat in the shade upon the green grass under luxuriant green trees, in the middle of a hot day. It is easy to see the practical application of this in decorative art and interiors. In a sense, it is almost a neutral, as it is a great backdrop color for any other color, as evidenced in nature.

Violet or purple has the qualities of red and blue, while orange has the qualities of yellow and red. Historically purple has been the color of royalty, as well as a color that represents intelligence and creativity.

Orange is always warm and advancing, as well as cheerful, vibrant, and glowing. To a lesser degree, orange has some of the effects of the color red.

Incomplete as the above descriptions are; they are probably sufficient to establish the point that personal qualities or individual character traits can be definitely expressed in terms of color.

Value is the second attribute of color. It is the quality of lightness or darkness of a color. It relates to a multi-step gray-scale; from white, through increasingly darker shades of gray, to black. A tint is a value lighter than a color’s normal value. Pink is a tint of the color red. A shade is a value darker than a color’s normal value. Maroon is a shade of the color red.

Intensity is the third quality of color. This aspect is the most important of all to a right understanding of interior design and decoration. This quality determines how brilliant or how forceful a color tone is. Softer and less aggressive tones are called neutral or neutralized colors.

The most important question in using color decoratively is that which relates to the distribution and correct placing of neutralized colors in their relation to the more intense ones. The biggest errors in the whole realm of color, used in interior decoration, are committed in this area. The following two major principles will clarify this matter for you:

“Backgrounds should be less intense in color than objects that are to appear against them in any decorative way.” What this means is that walls, ceilings, and floors must be less intense in color than hangings, upholstery, pictures, in other decorative aspects.

“The larger the color area the less intense it should be, and the smaller the area, the more intense it may be.” According to this principle, hangings and large rugs must normally be less intense in color than toss pillows, lampshades, decorative ceramics, and other accessories. For example, for a man, a red necktie is more appealing than a red suit. For a woman, a red flower or ribbon is more decorative on a black fashionable hat, than a gray ribbon would be on a red hat.

Even the slightest attempt at using color discloses its power to express your personality. With a little knowledge and wisdom, you can use it to your best advantage.

Getting Your Interior Design and Decorating Started Right

Interior design and decorating is one of the oldest of all the arts. Properly understood, it can be very exciting and rewarding to engage in. All you have to do is apply the correct and appropriate formulas, adapted to your budget.

It is very important and necessary to find out what you really need and want; then follow a few age-old foundational principles, in order have the success that you are looking for. A few easily understood principles will enable you to work out combinations and arrangements that will be appropriate and therefore satisfying to you, no matter what type of room you are planning.

Make It Easy On Yourself

When designing or decorating a room or a whole house, you can help yourself a great deal if you make a careful analysis of yourself and your family before you began; such as what you like, what you want, what you do, what you hope to do someday, etc.

Put everything down on paper. Be guided by this analysis in your choice of furniture, arrangements, color schemes, and accessories. Also, write down not only what you want it to look like, but what you want it to feel like as well. A look without the appropriate feeling and ambiance is nothing, in my book.

Make The Right Decisions The First Time

The best way to do it right, once, the first time is to have a plan. This will be a sketch or drawing that is drawn to scale. It is critical that the floor plan of the room you plan; is to scale. This will usually mean that 1/4 inch will equal 1 foot; or if you want it larger, then draw it to 1/2 inch equals 1 foot. This means that 1/4 inch or 1/2 inch, will represent an actual 12 inches or 1 foot of real space.

You must do the same thing with your furniture. It must be drawn or sketched to scale as well. Otherwise, you will definitely have a wrong perception of reality. You must do everything to scale on paper, because it allows you to have much more fun and freedom of expression, as well as allowing solutions to come to your mind that you would never have thought of otherwise.

Doing floor plans is the professional way to start. Amateurs skip this, which is one reason they are amateurs; even if they call themselves decorators or designers. If you fail to plan, then you plan to fail, whether you know it or not.

Eliminating “Paralysis of Analysis”

The preliminary analysis of your home interior design and decorating problem should include answers to several definite questions. Think of this as the Sherlock Holmes phase. You want to ask the right questions; to get the right answers; so you can get the right results. Your answers to the right questions will have a deciding influence on the various phases of your plan. Thinking things through will save you time and money, as well as preventing possible and probable disappointments with your results.

Some Words of Caution

Do not decorate or design in haste; and later repent at leisure! Even if you have the money to carry out your whole design and decorating program, don’t be rushed into buying anything which will compromise the effect you want.

Don’t be discouraged if you have to operate on a budget. Decide what you can comfortably spend in the beginning, and put most of it into basic pieces that will be a permanent investment in your satisfaction and comfort. Then, spread the rest of it out over “makeshifts” which will do until they can be replaced. These pieces will be temporary until you can afford something better; or they may turn out to be so charming and so useful that you will not want to give them up and you can allocate them to other areas of your environment.

As you work your plan, you may find that parts of it need altering as you go along; because you’ve found that they can be improved. However, make sure the contemplated improvements fit into the original plan or concept. Remember, it’s not only about the look; but the look and the feel or ambiance that you are after.

Don’t be tempted for the sake of a bargain, or any other reason to spend time or money on a single piece or article which will not add to the effectiveness of your preconceived design or decorative scheme, as you have outlined it from the beginning. Also remember; proper, prior planning prevents poor performance!

It’s vital that you realize that you can spend a great deal of money, or a comparatively small sum; as long as it is realistic; and get very pleasing results if you have a plan and knowledge.

An Important Closing Comment

After you work things out on paper, including your floor plans and your documentation of your questions and answers; it must then be translated into action. Always look at the colors and designs in the environment where they are going to be used, and under the lighting conditions there; both natural and artificial. Color is how you light it! Therefore, never guess how textures, colors, designs, or fabrics, etc., will go with each other, outside of the final environment they will be residing in.

How to Reduce or Eliminate Your Mistakes in Interior Design and Decorating

We all reside in houses of one kind or another. When furnished, whether well done or not, they constitute the environment in which we spend the great part of our lives. These environments influence us continually and profoundly.

To the degree that your home is beautiful and comfortable, affects us favorably and provides a wonderful haven for recuperation of mind and body, as well as facilitating a richer and more satisfying life. To the degree that it is uncomfortable and lacking in beauty, it provides the exact opposite, to a potentially devastating degree.

As you can see, a properly furnished home is a very important matter. It affects your life, as well as your attitude and ambitions. Your home should be an environment that is as supportive of your life as possible. Therefore, knowledge of how to furnish a house properly is also very important.

Beauty and comfort in a home does not result from chance or happy accident. They result from the proper application of a reasoned process. Two quotes on the back of my business card illustrate this perfectly. They are foundations of my business philosophy. Firstly, “Quality is never an accident; it is always the result of intelligent effort.” Secondly, “When you love and skill work together; expect a masterpiece.”

Transforming an empty house into a place of beauty and comfort, is no less a creative work than transforming a blank canvas into a picture, or carving a block of stone into a beautiful sculpture. The major distinction between a painting or sculpture, and a house, is that you are looking at the artwork, whereas in the home you are not only looking at the interiors, but also enveloped in them. Therefore, interior design and decoration is also an art of selection and arrangement in a three-dimensional environment. This will require knowledge, appreciation, discrimination, and good judgment. Since interior design is a part of architecture, like a hand and glove, it differs from painting and sculpture in that it has a very practical aim. Your home must not only look good, but function well, to be supportive of your lifestyle

When you set out to furnish your home, you face a threefold problem.

You must select and arrange items that suit the age, sex and temperament of the individuals; whether one or many, as well as meet their needs, express their tastes and aspirations, as well as fit the budget.
You must see to it that the furniture and accessories selected and arranged; suit the home in terms of scale, proportion, coloring, and style; whether it is eclectic, transitional, traditional, or contemporary.
Finally, you must see to it that these things are not only suitable, but also good-looking and aesthetically pleasing. In addition, they must all combine to form a harmonious and beautiful whole.

In other words, the treatment of your house and each room in your house, involves the interplay of three factors, which we will differentiate as the personal, the architectural, and the aesthetic. No decorative problem, however simple or complex; can be solved correctly and appropriately unless each of these factors is properly considered and given its due importance in order to achieve the best result.

Even though the personal factor is of extreme importance, the architectural factor is one of the first things taken into account. Since the size and other physical characteristics of the rooms will determine what goes in them.

The personal factor is critical from the point that houses are for people, and a house exists to make adequate provision for the satisfaction, needs, and preferences of the individuals that will inhabit it. The prior statement is simple common sense; yet professionals, as well as nonprofessionals ignore it frequently. Many look at it as “decorating” without due consideration for personal aspects relative to the real needs and preferences of the occupants.

This is not about fads or the newest craze! You must never forget, that if you choose to disregard the personal factor, or make it of subordinate importance, you will pay the price in loss of comfort and beauty. If your main concern is to comply with the newest fad or craze of the hour, you may experience an hour’s satisfaction; but you will most assuredly fail in achieving any dignity and individuality or the fine flavor of distinction found only in homes whose decoration and design are established on the studied needs and tastes of the occupants.

As far as the aesthetic factor is concerned; making the furnishings fit the house is also of great importance as well as making them fit the people who live there. A properly furnished home meets all the real needs, both practical and aesthetic, of all the occupants, and relates them to the architectural factors as well. This paves the way for a pleasing and harmonious composition that is unique and personal.

Briefly, here is what you need to consider. Imagine three intersecting circles. Circles A, B, and C. Circle A represents the total number of things available, without reference to their suitability, and are intrinsically good-looking, or pleasing in an aesthetic way. Circle B represents the total number of items that would satisfy your personal requirements. Circle C is the total number of elements that would satisfy the architectural requirements. The small area where all three circles intersect is the “sweet spot” which we will label as D. This is the total amount of items and elements that are capable of satisfying all the conditions; that being personal, aesthetic, and architectural. The remaining, are the choices that you are limited to, in order to create the most holistic design possible. This will eliminate all the “fluff” and potential errors and mistakes that can ruin a potentially wonderful result that can greatly enrich your life.

The Great Rewards of Interior Design and Decorating

Interior design and decorating has been among the famous ways to improve the internal aspect of the house or any establishment. This practice of designing and decorating the interior of the house has become common and public since most if not all households desire that they live in a residence that provide them the best of comfort and security. Interior design and decorating primarily focuses on the improvement of the appearance or aesthetic of the furniture, design, decors, appliances, and other equipment inside the house.

Practically, interior designing and decorating improves not only the owner’s satisfaction of living in the building but such practice also increases the market value of the house. Most houses have enormous price tag not only because they are strategically located or that their foundations are strong but also because the interior of the house has a magnificent appearance of strength, quality, and beauty combined. Thus, some houses have interiors that cost double than the structure itself since the appliances include an integrated 3D television, the sofa is classical, top of the line couch, and a complete set of home entertainment among others.

Among the different great benefits that interior design and decorating provides for the homeowners are the feeling of outstanding comfort and relaxation, the pride of owning such a splendid house, the certainty of higher market valuation in case of selling or mortgaging such property, and the security of having a safe and sound residential building. With the top of the line appliances and furniture arranged in the most elegant manner, the dwellers should undoubtedly enjoy every moment they are inside the house.

Having an elegantly designed and decorated home interior also boosts confidence and pride of the owner to invite guests and host parties. This gut comes from the satisfaction that the house is very prepared for such functions and can very well accommodate every desire of the guests. The homeowner will also enjoy the financial benefit of having a highly valued and appraised real estate property at his disposal. Interior design and decorating is but another form of investment in your housing unit. This ensures that your home does not only incur depreciation but also an upswing of its value in the market.

Finally, this practice updates the safety and lucky arrangements of the interior fixtures and decorations. The safety features of the internal aspect of the house are checked and upgraded with modern security equipment that suit the overall design concept of the building. In oriental practice especially that of the Chinese, the belief that the arrangements of furnitures and fixtures inside the house either attract or repel luck and fortune.

With all of these great promises and rewards of interior design and decorating, no wonder almost every household has an utmost interest and desire to redesign and redecorate their interior so that it suits and fits with one’s standards of excellence, comfort, and style plus it also provides them advantages in the financial and fortune matters.

The only caveat here is that this process prior to reaping all these great rewards require spending some if not most of your resources. Thus, only perform this process when you have sufficient money and other essential resources or else all that you worked hard for will only end up foreclosed or sold.

Interior Design and Decorating in Limited Urban Space

When new home owners try to picture out the interior design and decorating, they might cringe at the thought. Most people who can already afford their homes have set aside a budget for the interior design and decors but do not like the idea of having to plan and start the theme for their house. That is when the idea of hiring interior designers comes in handy especially when the owner has no background or idea of the right way to spice up their living space in the big metro.

The idea of limited space in urban homes is a reality. Most of these city houses have a few square feet spare for patios or small yards in the front or back. The idea of urbanized living space is to find a functional limited space and transform it into a chic but livable place for young professionals or starting couples. This can be challenging for lay persons who could only look at the confined area of small condos or apartments in the big city.

But with the development of decors that are affordable and easy to find, decorating your urban space can no longer be that of a hard work. Metal materials generally swamp decors sections in most shops since they are durable, malleable for easy designs, and look sophisticatedly modern. A great example would be metal wall clocks that can last for a long time, great in many interior designs, and modern pieces. Innovative décor companies also include organizer furniture and decors like the shoe rack and many others that can help your place more organized and spacious.

Cabinets and pantries are usually incorporated into the interior design of a room and seem to be concealed for the most part. The many compartments for the modern kitchen in most condos, for example, are placed underneath kitchen counters or overhead to strategically maximize the tight kitchen space. Good thing that most appliances are made in mini modes and are easily placed in small places around the kitchen. Targeting for a minimal but functional theme can truly help in maximizing the rest of the limited space in the condo or apartment units.

Getting the right kind of designer to do your design and décor can also be a great contributor for your urban zone revamp or start. Ask for recommendations from friends or families who have a great place to boast about and ignore the pricy tags of commended professionals who ask for too much for their service fees. Settle for a designer who can recommend lesser but not less creative alternative design schemes for your living space.

Remember that your living space and the interior design and decorating are essential to keep yourselves happy and calm in your own little private sanctuary. Couples should seriously consider the right designer to guide them in design and decors. Do not try to invest in novice designers who can disappoint you with too much enthusiasm and your place might end up looking like an art experiment. You must also stay clear of the most in demand designer to do your living space for you as they can end up doing too little for too much payment. Settle instead for someone who understands you concept and respect it no matter what.

Interior Design And Decorating – Economical Picture Frames

People say that home is where the heart is. Therefore careful planning is essential for the success of our home because, after all, no matter the troubles and the obstacles we encounter everyday, we always come home and rest our weary bodies. Our homes are the picture of us and an expression of our individuality. In relation to this, there are elaborate houses with the best interiors and decoration while there are houses that are simple yet classy and beautiful. Whatever you like, the most important thing is that you are happy at the end of the day coming home and resting your exhausted body. There are others who seek the skills of interior designers to beautify their houses which will bring pleasure to the owner’s eyes and that of the visitor while there are others that simply contemplate on their own ideas of interior designing and decorating. If you are on a budget constraint but still want to uphold the beauty of the house you are aspiring, you can choose picture frames as a good alternative to pricey decorations.

Frames can either be placed on surfaces like desks, tables and even on walls so choose your pick. Frames are casings of images such as photographs, paintings and drawings and they exist for the sole purpose of preserving the beauty of such while providing beauty to an empty wall, table or desks. You can choose from materials such as the classic gold, silver and bronze, woods, aluminum, plastics, seashells and other materials available.

Prices of picture frames depends on the size, colors, styles, shapes and materials used. First thing to consider is to determine the size you want like for instance you can choose from 4×6, 5×7, 8×10, 11×14 and 16×20. Good news for you, you can consider multiple picture frames as an efficient indoor decorating that is affordable at the same time beautiful. There are 3 openings, 7 opening and 9 openings available with various styles and colors according to your needs and the needs of your household.

If you specifically want pictures that can be mounted on walls, you can choose to consider wall picture frames as an efficient choice. Walls with frames will really spice up the look of your hallways and walls that will serve as your focal area. Simple houses with beautiful and appropriate frames will be appealing not only for you but for the people around. There are also colors, styles and sizes with different materials available according to your preferences. For instance you can choose from Dakota wall trapeze, family crossroads collage, vintage picture frames and other wall mounted frames.

Achieve elaborate interior design and decoration with the help of picture frames that are cheap and affordable but exhibits good results at the same time. You can find one in nearby stores but if you want unique ones you can search and look in the internet for more quality and beautiful works.

Pictures that are well-preserved with the help of frames will certainly last a lifetime.

Creating Sumptuous Spaces – Tips on Interior Design and Decorating

Our homes are our castles, our keep and refuge to which we return after doing battle with corporate dragons, traffic, bureaucratic brain scientists and recalcitrant nursery school tots. And how much more pleasant the experience when the space is to die for. And getting those spaces beautiful is one of life’s great pleasures. There is nothing quite like a spot of interior design and decorating therapy to brighten the dingiest day.

Well, most of the time anyway. Sometimes things can really go badly wrong and slips between the drawing board and the paint bucket can cause some spectacularly unexpected and, well, interesting results. Never fear though, there a couple of basic pointers when it comes to decorating that can save the day.

Make your own choices. Although glossy house and home magazines can offer up tons of great ideas, your home is your space and anything you apply should center around your needs, taste and the constraints of the space itself.

Lighting and the effect of furnishings and features affects everything you put into a space, so don’t choose fabrics, carpets etc. in the store. Ask for samples or swatches and check them in your home environment.

The same applies to colour. Don’t choose paint in a store. Buy a sample and paint a small section of wall and assess the effect in your room. Also remember that texture plays a big role in how colours present themselves. Paint on a smooth wall will look subtly different when applied to a textured finish, particularly as light shifts through the area.

Don’t crowd your walls. Unless you have absolutely no choice, don’t allow furniture to hug the walls of a room. Group the furniture to create social space and don’t be afraid to utilise the centre spaces. Walls are easier to maintain in this way as well.

Don’t box yourself in. Points of entry and exit should never be obstructed and logical traffic flows should be left open. This not only makes for an easy flow through the area but facilitates cleaning.

Avoid trends. Trends are gone as quickly as they pop up. Stick with classic, timeless themes and quality furnishings. Neon animal print faux fur may be “in” today but will probably be a source of great embarrassment tomorrow.

Create focal points in an area. Any room benefits hugely from having a feature or furnishings that create strong focal attractions. Arrange the furnishings in the room to maximise the effect of that focal point. At the same time try and keep the focal attraction generic with wide appeal. Uncle Ernie’s stuffed whale head is not a good idea for the living room wall.

Mismatched furnishings can destroy a space if you can’t find some way to tie them together theme wise. Try and maintain a common thread or theme when decorating a room.

Details, details, details. The importance of detailing in a room can’t be stressed enough. Colour coded scatter cushions, table lamps, books, fragrant candles and flowers all make great accessories and add detail that draws a theme together.

So, there are a couple of pointers to help your home decorating have personal impact. The most important thing to remember though is to express yourself in your decorating and above all else – Have fun!

What Is Interior Design And Decor?

What does ‘interior design’ really mean? If you ask Joe Bloggs on the street he will probably answer: “Well, you know, ornaments, cushions, sofas, candles, that sort of thing.” But it is so much more!

Interior design is: “An art form where an interior design architect or other person taking on the role of interior designer uses different pieces of furniture, colour, ornaments and other objects to decorate and furnish a room in a dwelling or other inteior space.”

The most common forms of interior design are home decor, office decor, shop interior design and hotel interiors, although other forms also exist.

Home decor

When we use the word ‘decor’ in decor blogs, we generally mean home decor. Home decor has several sub-categories, including bathroom decor, kitchen decor, living room decor and so on.

The idea behind home decor is that you should decorate your own home according to your own tastes – preferably using inspiration from inredningsvis.se

Home staging companies (also called home stylists) decorate homes with fine but often neutral taste, so that the residence can achieve the highest possible sale price.

Office decor

Due to the fact that most office workers spend more than 1500 hours at the office every year, the office environment is extremely important. Desks and chairs must be ergonomically suited to each individual worker and the entire work space must be inspiring. Even meeting rooms can be optimized for increased ease of use and comfort.

The first impressions experienced by customers and clients at the workplace has a large impact on the overall image of a company. Investing in the right decor in a reception area can be the difference between deal or no deal.

With the right office decor, everyone feels better at work and productivity is increased.

Shop decor

Sales are affected to a huge extent by the inteior design of a shop. Therefore, the appearance of a shop must mirror the company vision, brands, status, and ideals. An electronics chain store will have completely different decor needs compared to those of a store specializing in high fashion.

Stylists working with shop decor generally work using the following plan: Brief and needs analysis, design of concept, purhase of furniture/ornaments and/or design of new prototypes, delivery and fitting.

Hotel interiors

Hotel inteiors must be well designed so that guests enjoy their stay. Entrance ways, reception, bedroom, bathroom, bar and other common areas – everything contrbutes to the overall impression for a hotel guest. Many different styles also exist of course, from classic to modern, budget, clean, minimalist and luxury. The design must match the wishes of potential guests as well as the location of the hotel, vision, and reputation etc.

Cheap Interior Design and Decoration

Most people spend a lot of money for the interior design. Sometimes even hundreds of thousands of dollars. Can someone make a beautiful interior design and decoration without spending a lot of money? Of course he can. I do not claim that the result will be the same with an interior design made by a professional and getting the most expensive furniture, but you can have a “good” result with just a few money. Some people take loans in order to decorate their house. This is unacceptable for me.

Here are some ideas for cheap decoration and interior.

1) Take a used sofa and get some nice covers. It will look very nice, believe me. Even if the sofa is partially damaged nobody will notice. But you must be careful just to be comfortable, and not to be damaged and have problems when someone is going to sit. I am talking about visual damages that will be covered by the covers.

2) Use many pictures on your wall to fill it instead of getting expensive furniture. A picture can replace a lot of things. It also makes the room look bigger as it does not require any space. In children rooms and bedrooms you can even use cheap posters. Posters also have the plus that you can put on the wall whatever you like, for example your favourite singer or band, your favourite team etc.

For the living room it is not good to use posters. You need normal pictures with frames. But don’t worry there are also cheap pictures, unless you want to buy an original painting. But why should you do that? who will understand if the painting is original or not. Unless you invite in your house art experts. But even in this occasion you can not impress them anyway without spending a lot of money, so concentrate on the appearance and the interior design.

How to choose a picture for your living room and how to place it is an other topic that will need time to mention now. If you want to see more you can visit my website and find completely free interior design and decorating ideas. I don’t try to make money from that, just share my ideas. Maybe you should also have a look there. And remember do not spend money if you don’t have money. You can make wonderful things with just a few hundreds dollars!
