Interior Design and the many Disciplines
Interior Design including Feng Shui
There are many facets of Interior Design and many
disciplines that Interior Design may be applied to. Feng Shui applies
to all of the facets and disciplines. Before Interior Design,
Facilities Management and
Green Design existed there was Feng Shui.
Understanding the principles of Feng Shui will improve your success
in these other facets and disciplines.

The facets of Interior Design are simple, it is the
integration of the facets that make for beautiful environments. Take a
look at what others have to say.
Whether you are doing a contemporary or traditional
interior, it does not matter. What is important is that the lines
and shapes of the elements you include are in harmony. Some of the
most interesting interiors happen when you mix the styles.
Contemporary furniture can easily be mixed with traditional
accessories and vise versa if the essence is in harmony.
When the Furniture, Seating and Accent Tables are
each different and unique it adds an interesting dimension to your interior.
However, you must remember the key in selection is harmony.
Decorative home accessories such as wall decor,
florals, mirrors, area rugs and accent pillows add another
layer of charm and interest. Silk flowers and plants are wonderful for
those who do not have a green thumb. Ask yourself, how many times you
had to touch a plant to see if it was real.
One typically thinks of wall decor
as art, however, there are many different items you can use for
the walls. Think of them as a canvas and you are creating a painting.
The key again in selection and placement is balance and harmony. You
can use art, mirrors, plants on shelves, ironwork and even rugs. Let
your mind go wild and see what you can come up with.
Blinds & Shades add a functional
element to your design where Draperies and Window Treatments add
acoustic qualities, warmth and a pizzazz, like eye candy.
Lighting is one of the most important parts of
your design. Lighting creates mood and atmosphere and can make
a so so interior look fabulous! There are many types of lighting to
consider. Think in terms of level and layers of lighting.
Ceiling fixtures give and overall lighting to a room. Task
lighting is necessary for specific levels of work and accent lighting
adds a warm glow to a room. Lamps can fall in the
categories of general lighting and task lighting.
A few more elements that you want to consider for your
interior environment are fountains and luxury bedding. Fountains that
can add a wonderful quality to your interior. There sound is very soothing
and the water adds moisture to your environment. Studies
show that we spend almost 1/3 of our life in bed, so why not pamper
yourself! Luxury bedding is great for the body, mind and spirit.
Don't miss the level of design. It will put your interior environment
over the top!
One element of
interior design that I must touch on is Organization. One can
have a beautiful interior to look at, but without organization it is just
pretty. The level of organization in your space adds to the quality of
the environment you create. a Beautiful room can be ruined when you
open the closet and items start falling out. You want your environment
to beautiful on the inside as well as the outside. Organization is the key
