Your Interior Design
Interior design is something intrigues and interests many of us, for even those who might not be conscious of it, it is something we use every day and practice. To even those who say they have no interest in it as an art and give no thought to it. Subconsciously they are practicing it in any home environment every day!
For lighting – no home would be complete without it! Interior design is all about creating a feeling. As with any art, creating a feeling is the first reason for its creation. Even the artist who states that their arts have to mean is about bringing change, well, the only way that change will come is if it creates a feeling – passion, anger, outrage, hope, joy – within the person viewing it. Interior design ideas and decoration are different things, but the fact that they are different and their differences don’t need to be dwelt upon. What makes them different is that the first is about creating a feeling and the other – interior decoration – is part of contributing to that feeling.
One is, as the name states, design, and the other is about fleshing it out. Adding the characteristic and elements – furnishings, decorative pieces, etc. – which realize the vision. What is cool about this design is that we all practice it, it all means something to all of us and it allows us a lot of freedom to create a feeling in our homes and to reflect who we are, what we think. What we want others to feel and think and consider when they visit us. Jacquard:
This is another term – or perhaps the term, depending on how you want to define it – to simply describe fabrics which are interwoven with design, patterns, pictures, etc. These are reversible – which means when you turn them around, reverse them, the pattern will be seen, but in a flip. As an example, a rug interwoven could be called a jacquard rug. Asian or Indian rugs might be the first thing we think of, with pictures of animals, creatures. Design – when turned it is the same image only now flipped. The name comes from the Jacquard loom machine which used a series of punch cards – cards with holes – which correspond to a pattern and which the threads run through.
Table lamps: Cheap table lamps might seem like small pieces of furnishings, but all homes have them and they come in a wide variety of styles, shapes, colors, etc. They will most often be purchased to reflect the overall design of the home. Traditional homes will most often have more traditional styles, using materials such as metals and more ornamental shades and dressings and patterns and shapes. As an example, in more modern or contemporary design. These will be more minimal and be more about their function and placement. A simple monotone lamp with simple but interesting design will be used and it will be placed in its exact spot within the room.
