“There are several elements of design that interior designers use according to some basic principles to create spaces that satisfy the functional and aesthetic goals of a problem. These design elements and principles are used by painters, graphic designers, sculptors, and other visual artists.”
1. Form – linear, flat, round, curved, cylindrical, square……all types of forms make up interior spaces.
2. Scale – “the relative size of something as related to another element of known size”
3. Color – color can be a powerful design tool and is “one of the most dominant perceptions of the physical world”
4. Texture – adds another layer to the complexity of a space, can be tactile or just visual
5. Pattern – the repetition of a decorative motif or image
6. Light – light affects all of the above, how we perceive objects and spaces
The unique combinations created when these elements are combined are endless.
The Kitchen is the focal point of most homes. Adding style and drama to your kitchen is easy with a beautiful colorful backsplash, especially when adding it to a Black and White Kitchen. The Colored Back Splash will bring out the drama and style of your Kitchen, and add Pizzazz to the existing space. If you have a small kitchen, consider incorporating shimmering tiles to open up the space up. Just like a mirror, the brilliant sheen of these Turquoise Glass subway tiles reflects light and makes the space feel more open.
A vibrant Turquoise hue adds a dash of drama to this predominantly beautiful colorful back splash and makes this small space much more interesting.
We really embraced this Blue Beachy Bath, and had fun adding all the beachy touches!! We went to the beach and filled up the glass vases with sea shells and sea glass, as well as the basket next to it. We also added blue towels to this already blue bath, a new chrome 8″ spread faucet, and of course some gorgeous show towels as well. Mixing an old fashioned Nicole Miller shower curtain, with our Beachy theme, adds simple elegance, with a whimsical charm and beauty.
This Kitchen looked like a giant Marshmallow when I first got in there! Much needed to get done. First, all new stainless steel appliances, then, all new Kitchen Cabinet doors and knobs. Of course nothing open ups a Kitchen like glass cabinet doors, which I felt was mandatory! We also added a wine rack on top of the refrigerator (an area where everyone forgets about), but nothing adds sex appeal to a White Kitchen like Tiger Eye! Tiger Eye granite is warm, wild, eye appealing and sexy, especially when accompanied with tumbled marble on an angel, just the ingredients to liven up a boring white kitchen and add tremendous sex appeal!
