Interior Design Process: Step One
The Room's Purpose
Deciding your Room’s Purpose is the first most important step – Will the room be used to entertain, or is it a family room that will be used everyday to watch tv in, or will it be a relaxation room.
There must be continuity and a consistent look and feel through the home to create a flow because spaces always connect.
Work within a reasonable budget to achieve the desired look and feel.
Create a floor plan – dimensions and measurements are an integral part of design and décor as they allow you to manage spaces in order to maximise functionality.
Your Signature Piece
Starting with a signature piece will give the inspiration for the rest of the room and choosing a colour palette will create harmony.
Your Personal Style
You’ll be involved in the design process to ensure your space is personalised and unique to your taste.
Limit trendy pieces, rather stay neutral for the larger pieces in a space add colour with scatters, art and rugs.
Wall Art & Mirrors
Always scale artwork and mirrors to a wall.
Lighting is an integral part of completing your look, it sets the mood. A layered lighting scheme including both task and ambient lighting are dependant on the purpose of the room.
