At Veneza we are engaged in interior design projects in Kolkata, We do Home and Office interior projects. We have been involved with this line of work for some time at Kolkata.
An Interior Design project involves the requirements of our clients , which are carefully evaluated by us , this is implemented in the best manner to take care of the needs in the very best way , and also to enhance the interiors , that also incorporate additional elements which will be useful .
You may wonder sometimes as to what are the broad elements of interior design... here is an very brief outline :
The basic principles of design include the following:
- Proportion , the individual elements have an identity , but there should be a cohesion among them , elements of a design should compliment and support each other, they should also be proportionate to the space they fill, combination of individual pieces should form a whole which is bigger than the sum of individual parts and beautiful in itself.
- Proportion is the ratio of one part to another part or to the whole. It involves shape, size, and visual weight of an object.
- Things just look “right”.
- Greek proportion. The golden section/mean/ratio, an ancient system of proportion. In this system when a line is divided into two unequal segments so the ratio of the short segment to the long segment is the same as the long segment to the total length of the line.
- Palladian proportion. This method sought relationship between each part of a building. Palladio felt that the rooms of a building should share common ratios with the exterior of the building. (Based on geometric whole numbers, such as 2:3, 3:5, 5:8, 4:7).
- Measured proportion. This system, developed by Le Corbusier, used ratios from the golden section for smaller dimensions, and measurements of parts of the human body for larger dimensions. (Each determined ratio then needed intuitive adjustment.)
- Fibonacci series. He was a mathematician who found that (1,2,3,4,5,6,7,8,9) were the most satisfactory for his calculations. (They are not exact figures but they are close.) This system is similar to the Golden section in that, as each number is added to the next, the third number is a combination of the first two.
- Unequal amounts are more pleasing to the eye than equal amounts.
- -The Rhythm:
Rhythm supplies the discipline that controls the eye as it moves around a room. Rhythm helps the eye to move easily from one object to another and creates a harmony. Rhythm is created through repetition of lines, shape, color or texture.
- Symmetrical or Formal Balance is the arrangement of forms on one side of an imaginary central dividing line, axis or plane is the mirror image of the other side.
- Associated with the beauty of nature.
- Repose and dignity.
- Asymmetrical or Informal Balance brings elements that are not matching into equilibrium.
- Asymmetrical balance can be achieved through placement, shapes, colors, sizes, and other aspects of objects.
- Emphasis is the feature that is seen first and that repeatedly draws attention.
- Any a room , an object / texture /design element that first draws your attention is the focal point. Design is usually centered around that focal point and balance , symmetrical or asymmetrical is achieved around that focal point.
- Repetition is created when a design element is repeated.
- Can be achieved through color, line, form, or texture.
- Can sometimes lead to monotony, so it must be balanced against the need for variety.
- Gradation: a gradual change in color value from dark to light or by a regular change from smaller to large parts that all have the same shape.
- Transition is achieved when curved lines carry the eye over an architectural feature or piece of furniture
- Harmony , is achived when unity and variety are effectively combined.
- Unity allows the viewer to see a design as a whole rather than seeing it as a collection of different elements. Ideally, everything relates so well that nothing can be added, taken away, or altered without changing the totality.
- Unity can be achieved through matching and coordinated fabrics, closely related colors, stylistic consistency, etc.
- Can carry a threat of monotony.
- Variety can relieve monotony by giving the eye a number of different shapes, textures, colors, or details to look at.
- All the varied components of an interior must relate to each other and to the overall theme of the design.
- Contrast can heighten values through comparison. A light color will seem lighter when placed near a dark color, a large object larger in contrast with something small.
- Variety and contrast can help to punctuate harmony and unity. A room may not have enough variety. Although there is Unity, there is not much to look at.
These are some of the broad principles that a designer has to keep in mind. Designing is also an inspirational activity which cannot be necessarily quantified.
