To begin, what exactly is home interior design? Today, few people are involved in the construction of their dwelling. Manufacturers are the source for home improvements products and these essentials are developed according to current design trends. However, our ancestral interior designers were men who took colored earth to rough out the forms of a bison on the wall of a cave. Animal skins were honored and adorned the floors. Women crafted essential and sacred elements with unusual feathers, shells, seeds, and stones, collected within the environment or along the nomadic path. Our ancestral relatives were concerned with the visual and material arrangement of their homes also. The sacred was carefully observed in the placement of the hide on the floor and when honoring the carefully drawn bison before a hunt. The cave, tent, or hut offered shelter plus divine supplication.
Today, this ancestral interior design is honored by historic references that abound in architectural and décor details. In the marketplace, a choice is also offered with the modern styles that also abound in architectural and décor details. A home décor and furniture source such as KindaChic.com appreciate the past and present represented in the details of their products. Most people like to see in home design what might be enjoyed in reality. This is quite a natural preference. To incorporate the vibrant colors or patterns of the natural world into a home and its house wares has influenced every builder and craftsperson. When a designer captures the essence of nature, it is an admiration of its good looks. The designer wants others, too, to admire and be aware of the form. Both of these examples represent interior design, but the term means very different things in different times and different places.
Understand, there are no wrong reasons for liking a statue, a picture or a chair design. Someone may like a particular landscape because it is a reminder of childhood, or a portrait because it evokes memories of a friend. There is nothing wrong with that. Memories influence our likes and dislikes. Memories help us to enjoy what we see.
Finally, the bias for the pretty becomes a stumbling block to a personal home design if it leads to the rejection of good ideas which represent a less pretty plan. The good ideas describe the best use of space. An interior design’s success is ultimately judged on how well the room functions per the homeowner’s needs. With careful consideration given to allocation of space, activity planning, and flow of movement, the furniture selected will fall simply and logically into place. A thoughtful study of a space to be lived in may be richly rewarded by a comfortable home.
