GAMINO Décor has the privilege of working with many designers in the industry to help bring their clients’ vision to life. Over the years we have learned many things about the fundamentals of Interior Design from arguably some of the best designers in the business.
There are seven elements of Interior Design that designers follow when creating, updating, and designing a space.
- Space – the foundation on which the entire design plan is built. A space filled with furniture and décor items is considered Positive Space. Empty space is considered Negative Space. The goal is to find and maintain the right equilibrium between the two.
- Line – the visual guides that create a sense of harmony, contrast, and unity in a living space. There are three types: Horizontal, Vertical, and Dynamic.
- Forms – the shapes or any three-dimensional object in the space. There are two types: Geometric (man-made) and Natural (organic).
- Light – sets the mood and ambience in a living space. Either natural or man-made, without light other elements such as color, texture, and pattern have no significance.
- Color – classified into Primary and Secondary colors, this sets the mood and establishes an aesthetic connection between objects. Each color has three characteristics – Hue, Value, and Intensity – and must be chosen based on the mindset of the client.
- Texture – the way a surface looks and feels. Texture adds depth and interest by defining the feel and consistency of the surface. There are two very broad types of texture: Visual (seen) and Actual (seen and felt).
- Pattern – tells a story and adds elements of continuity to a space. Patterns are often repetitive and attractive and add interest and work with other colors.
At GAMINO Décor, we offer many of these elements to our clients through our quality fabrics, custom furniture knowledge, and the expertise of our staff. We understand the importance of these elements in all our projects, whether it’s custom furniture, reupholstery, or restoration. Let GAMINO Décor help to bring these elements into your space.
