2021: Interior Design Inspirations from our previous and ongoing projects

Table setting may not be the important to some, but it definitely adds more personality to the design when done right. It creates a certain atmosphere and becomes the focus of an entire decor. Setting a table isn’t difficult, all you really need is a theme or a color palette and some centerpieces to set a specific mood or feel.

Combining playfulness and solemnity, the gray and yellow color scheme is used to convey resilience and positivity. The cool gray tones can reduce the intensity of yellow, while the uplifting bright color gives the dull color personality and strength which it cannot have by itself.

First impressions last. Your home’s foyer is the first thing visitors see when they step inside your house and the sight that welcomes you home every day. There are many ways to design this area such as placing a sleek console table as well as a statement artwork like above.

The combo seems to be ideal when it comes to stylish decorations. The white color breaks the monotony of a simple gray room. It gives your design a special look you will love. White details in your gray bedroom decor can be either on walls or furniture. Decorative objects are also a way to sprinkle some white lines into your room.

Gray is not anybody’s first choice when decorating. However, this class neutral color has a special way of transforming any space, like a bedroom. It’s a very versatile color with a range of hues from charcoal to a light gray, so there is an assortment of shades you can choose from to find the perfect tone for your home. Adding elements that contrast the gray is must as well. With the added help of the black bed frame, chandelier, art, and wooden floors, it gives the space more personality.

Due to the pandemic more people are working and studying from home. One of the many challenges these days is finding the best place to work at home. The right lighting is important for your eyes, productivity and morale. Facing your desk toward the window is the best choice as it utilizes the natural light coming in. Remember to keep the curtains fully open, or half open if there is a glare. Also having your back to the bed helps, you’ll be less sidetracked by thoughts of your comfy bed when you’re trying to work or study.

White is popular color choice in design as it is often associated with elegance and sophistication. Throwing in color on the countertop and backsplash help provide contrast to enhance the feel of the space. White can make any space seem larger and creates a bright ambiance when there are no windows available to let in natural light.

Tall mirrors and a glass shower enclosure amplifies light from the outside as well as the lighting fixtures, making the space brighter and open. Add to that a light color scheme to make the small space larger than it seems. Also bulky and big elements can make the space suffocating so opt for small and light elements to open up the space.

“The essence of interior design will always be about people and how they live. It is about the realities of what makes for an attractive, civilized, meaningful environment, not about fashion or what’s in or what’s out. This is not an easy job.”

  • Albert Hadley

“Using the human spirit as a starting point for architecture, design, and interiors is the mantra for this movement. Those successfully creating holistic homes put the human being in the center of the design process for the home.”

Natural light can make any space look slightly larger and less stuffy. It also brings out different, more lively looks of the colors that appear on the various finishes on the surface of the furniture, walls and floors in the space.
