Well its Monday and my day starts with the coffee, stimulate the creativity and then peruse the Design Trends, review my weekend, then Focus Plan the week. Its a serious morning meeting! But when I look at this process, its really more of a communication & conversation. Much like the work of a Interior Designer, we converse with space and how we move and adapt to it - an amazing creative conversation!
So in a world of Design Trends and the pop phrase of there are 'NO RULEs' - how does a Designer nail your space?
Look at the two examples, one space looks well mehhh while the other is WOW! Both are actually good spaces, the room of mehh is just not a good conversation.....while the WOW room works as its had a conversation and all elements harmonize.
An interior designer uses the Power of Knowledge and the Vision of Creativity to achieve a space that works. Yes I agree there are no design rules to establish a space, as each space is an unique as those who dwell in it. A Designer will initiate a conversation using the Practice & Principals of Design. How does the space and elements work? What is function that is needed, and can be implied? What is the mood and style? When these elements are processed you have harmony in the room or space, or your Designer has nailed it!
So look at your space today, this week, and always in a new light - do you have a vision? Start with a Focus Plan and then call in a Designer to bring it all together , aka to 'Nail It.
