Interior Design

While I may be an aspiring writer, I am first and foremost an interior designer and 3-Dimensional visualization specialist. This field also lets me dabble in a number of creative fields such as graphic design, conceptual planning, art, and writing. This page is dedicated to interior design and its related fields.

Interior design isn’t only about throwing in a few colors and materials and making the space aesthetically pleasing. It is also about providing a practical use of the space while solving any issues that might come up during the process. All of this is done keeping the aesthetics in mind and building up the space around the client. For a perfectly designed space should reflect the tastes of those who would utilize the space.

There are a few different styles of interior design. While each designer is unique and each client is unique no single project would be limited to one definite style but rather a fusion of different styles Some of my personal favorite styles to mix and match are:

  • Boho

It may seem like a wild and unruly style and simple as putting colorful fabrics and throw pillows, but there is an art to creating this style. Boho (short for Bohemian) is carefree, unconventional, natural, traveled. Translated into a bohemian interior, the style embraces elements like layered textures, vintage pieces, and natural finishes. Its an art of combination and mixing of unique pieces and colors to achieve a seamless playfully aesthetic look.

  • Art nouveau

Introduced in the 19th century directly related to the then popular Art Noveau style, it is above everything a highly decorative and ornamental style. Though its fame quickly waned due to being accused of being too lavish and expansive the style aimed to be original without borrowing any aspects from preceding styles.

  • Industrial

From the lofty warehouses, factories and other industrial structures, this style opts for stripped back bare materials such as bricks, metals and woods as well as recycled materials. The biggest pros to using industrial design for decorating the spaces is that the furniture used would be unique to the space and one of a kind. Usually consisting of reclaimed and recycled pieces.

  • Modern

Often confused with contemporary style, the modern interior design style came into being in the early 20th century with earth colors, neutral and natural elements. It also eliminates a lot of unnecessary detailing opting for simple uncluttered spaces with clean lines running throughout.

  • Minimalist

Usually compact spaces with strict geometric shapes overlaid with black or gray, the minimalist style is a design approach characterized by austerity and laconism in the décor. Mainly achieved with practical functional furniture and other interior objects with one or two colors present.

In future posts I would be emphasizing on these styles and how I’ve used them over the years for the projects that I’ve worked on.
