Where to begin. There is so much that is a part of interior design and I love it all. For me, interior design is a way to express your personality. This expression of self continues when you are able to live in the space that you have created.
It is also a way to appreciate the art that comes from the perfect combination of structure, texture, color, and light.
To bring life to a dead space
To integrate history to a room.
This can be as simple as adding a statement piece of furniture or painting or even a souvenir that reminds you of a great day.
For me, it is important that spaces make you feel. Even if you feel awkward or pushed out of your comfort zone, that is better than not feeling at all.That emotion could also be peace or excitement. There are places that I still think about to this day no matter how many years pass by.
Trends are another component of interior design. While trends are useful when looking for inspiration, one should not blindly follow them.
For me, the perfect design is the one you personally like even if others don’t agree. Ultimately, you are the one living in that space every day and it should bring you joy.
My perfect room exhibits bold design. Over the years I have learned to not doubt if someone will think my design ideas are too much.
For me, if you like your space that's all that matters.
