There are six essential elements used in all aspects of interior design and decorating. If you correctly incorporate all or most of these elements, you will have created a beautiful and functional room.
Balance - There are two types of balance, symmetrical and asymmetrical. Perfect symmetry is like the human body, two eyes, two arms. Symmetrical balance is typically very formal.
Balance also refers to the weight of different objects in a room. Can be the actual weight and size of furniture, such as a large entertainment center, or it can be visual weight.
Focal Point - A focal point is the center of interest, usually the part of the room that our eye is naturally drawn to when we first enter.
Scale and Proportion - The size of pieces relative to one another and the size of the space is their SCALE. Moreover, more importantly, the size variance of different parts within a room should be somewhat related.
Texture - The texture is the one element that can instantly add matter to a monochromatic coloring scheme. Linen window shades and feather pillows can found in the same color range, but each has a very different look and feel.
You may have never put much thought into these elements, but when they are put together in a room, they will enhance the room and make it beautiful!
Taking on an interior design project can be a massive undertaking. Don’t let your vision become compromised. Start by getting organized.
