Architecture, interior design and art
What is Architecture?
Social and cultural values and needs are reflected in all the architecture around us. From ancient cemeteries, places of worship, community and political buildings and houses. Good architecture is both functional and attractive to the eye. There are various styles and they all have their own specific properties. If you understand this, you can analyze buildings and give you a better view of how the different interior styles were created. Architecture shows you how a civilization has developed. From the Romanesque era that was influenced by Greek architecture; The Renaissance brought back more classical ideas and styles, while Modernism emphasizes the ‘ Less is More’ idea in which unnecessary decorations disappear. Knowledge of architectural styles helps architects and interior designers with the design work. This knowledge is necessary to be able to make certain choices when furnishing and styling a living space
What exactly is interior design?
Almost everyone occasionally finds themselves in an environment that stimulates the senses. It leaves a certain impression. The sound from your hotel room in a busy city or the silence in the mountains; a unique scent of baked apple pie or leather; the effect that light has on exhibited objects or how certain surfaces feel. A room can look attractive through the use of a balanced combination of objects. An attractive space can mean something different for everyone. Regardless of its function, every interior has the ability to become a successful working or living environment through the right design choices.
It can be a special experience to be present in a unique, inspiring environment. The definition of interior design is the art of creating attractive and functional work and living spaces. The best designers understand and respect tradition and originality. They use this knowledge to select the most suitable materials for a design project. Interior design has a long and rich history. Understanding this history helps a designer to easily follow or break the rules of design. Changes in lifestyles, social needs, and advances in technology and materials are constantly opening up new opportunities to experiment with interiors. This is the evolution of interior use and experience.
How do we define art?
Something that is created with imagination and skill and expresses important ideas or feelings. The history of art coincides with the history of design. Art can be mixed with different design styles and eras. For example, we can talk about painting, sculpture and textile art. You can find design solutions by displaying collections such as porcelain, antique jewelry, Colombian dolls, painted vases and objects from all over the world. Authentic historic country houses and European castles look beautiful with contemporary art. And classical visual art stands out in a modern environment.
How do I present my art objects?
You can place art on pillars, this is the way to use collectibles as part of a living space. For the real professional among us, you can include a lighting plan to enhance your art collection. Make sure that the way you place and hang art makes as much sense to the space as all the other design choices you make. When grouping the selected illustrations, you should consider size, balance, proportion, repetition, texture, color, etc. Depending on the atmosphere you are trying to create, place artwork where it can be seen for example when you walk into a room or when you sit down. Another possibility is to emphasize a selective art collection of different styles by hanging them in close proximity to each other. Consider how the artwork compares to all other objects, colors, textures and architectural features in the room. A sculpture can be part of an arrangement of accessories on a table top or mantelpiece. Or it can be detached.
