The Art of Interior Design

The art of interior design is about more than just looking pretty. It's about creating spaces that make you feel good.

Good design is all about the aesthetic—the overall look and feel of a room or space. But good design isn't just about form; it's also about function. The details of how a space works are just as important as the way it looks.

For example, if you're designing a bedroom, the color palette should be soothing and relaxing, but it should also be easy to clean (so no white walls!). If you're designing a kitchen, it should be functional and efficient so that you can spend less time cooking and more time enjoying your family at home.

A well-designed room has harmony between its parts—it feels complete in a way that satisfies our instincts as human beings to have everything in order and balanced. Imagine walking into an empty room with no furniture—nothing on the walls, no rugs on the floor, no decorations anywhere… how does that feel? Does it make sense? How does it make you feel?

When you're designing a space, you're creating an aesthetic.

Aesthetic is a term that gets thrown around a lot in the design world, but what does it really mean?

In essence, it's about how you feel when you look at something. It's about whether or not an object is beautiful to you.

What makes something aesthetically pleasing?

There are lots of factors: shape, color, texture, pattern, balance…the list goes on and on. But the most important thing about aesthetic is that it's subjective—what people find beautiful varies widely from person to person. Some people love bright colors; others prefer earth tones. Some people can't get enough of patterns; others prefer simple lines. And some people like things to be symmetrical and balanced; others prefer asymmetry or imbalance.

That's why aesthetic is so important in interior design: if you're going for an aesthetic that someone else finds appealing, then your design might be successful—but if not… well then it might not be so great!

For example: if you're designing a bedroom, the aesthetic can be "modern," or "minimalist," or "eclectic."

Aesthetic is defined as "the study of the nature of beauty and its effects." This means that when you design, you are not just thinking about what looks pretty—you are also thinking about how your design choices will affect the experience of whoever is interacting with your design.

When designing for yourself, it's important to think about what appeals to you personally. Does minimalist appeal? Or modern? Eclectic? Does it make you feel inspired and happy? Or does it make you feel calm and at ease?

When designing for someone else, consider their preferences and personality traits before deciding on an aesthetic. What might be a beautiful choice for one person may not work well for someone else.
