What do I mean the “Whole of Your Space?”
Here are some thoughts to ponder:
Comfort – Are all the seats comfortable and appropriate of your function, not the SEAT, but YOU.
Light – The right lighting in the interior but are you capturing as much of the natural space from the outside.
Air – I know you are questioning this – but a space needs to breathe just as you do – this means not every wall needs something on or against it – float a chair or sofa away from the wall. Not every corner needs to be filled – by leaving areas open – not only are you allowing a breathe to be taken, but your eyes can rest and appreciate what’s there.
Expansion – I’ve addressed this on several occasions – you can create visually more space simply by creating volume by grabbing outdoors – How?
By taking one of the colors outside your window and using it as a wall color or an accent color; By incorporating plants and flower arrangements into the space;
By laying out the outdoor space as a “room” and becoming part of your interior! By using holidays to express what these events and occasions mean to you.
Whether its for my clients or for myself, I bring a piece of all these elements into my designs. Since I’m traveling this holiday, a tall glass cylinder fills with glass decorations and small gift boxes offered a festive lift for the short time I am in the City. Wandering the City during this time of year, experiencing the stores decorated interiors and festive windows, offers us all a great uplift and joy in the moment.
While we all anticipate the coming New Year – lets find time to reflect what this past year has brought – and just maybe the New Year will bring us Peace on Earth and in our Hearts.;
WISHING YOU ALL THE VERY BEST AND LOOK FORWARD TO WORKING WITH YOU IN THE NEW YEAR!
