2021: Interior Design Inspirations from our previous and ongoing projects

SYMMETRICAL BALANCE. Discover our design approach for this concept project #FilipinoFestiveHotel and for this presentation we used symmetrical balance as our main design principle for this area.

Symmetrical balance is where the two sides of the composition are exactly the same (or very nearly the same) and they make a mirror image of each other. Symmetrical balance creates a static, stable composition and is suited to informative or instructional visual communications.

LINE. Love at the first line. Imagine how a simple line can affect your perception of the space. Our design trick to accentuate the ceiling height? use vertical lines that will draw attention from floor to ceiling and create an illusion of height.

The line can be used to;

emphasize something (an outline on a character, underline),
to divide components in a composition (column line),
to create a figure (lines in an observational sketch),
to create tone and texture (cross-hatching, shading),
to create a form (lines on an angle),

FORM. Strong geometric, biomorphic, and abstract. We want to experiment in design by introducing new ways to use the forms that we commonly use or have seen. This includes the shape of the wooden blocks as our ceiling accent.

Form is a three-dimensional entity. It is often made from shapes, lines, or even colors. Form creates space and depth.

Emily in Paris office but make it better? Kidding aside. (But this design can clearly be one of the places they can shoot in for Emily in Paris, though).
The black, white, and gold color palette never goes wrong, especially when added with a complementary element: wood. This clean space can house clothes and other things alike needed for studios as this design is very clean and fancy.

Muted colors are undeniably comforting and could really look nice only when matched with the appropriate hues and elements. This lobby is certainly the epitome of that eclectic interior.

This is a different angle view of our hygge-curated space. It shows the design on the ceiling which looks exactly like the design behind one of our couches.

With the guide of our designer color pick of the week, this design gives you nothing but a calming place to work at. It is simple but functional—definitely a place you can be productive at.

A Queen’s Gambit set dining area? Possibly!
This interior gives you a vintage vibe but with modern touches, especially with its utensils and frames. The colors are complementary which can definitely make your meal taste way better.

This simple and “cozy” interior is definitely what you’ll dive into after a long day. With its chic contrasting colors and classy black lamps from the ceiling, this radiates nothing but warmth and comfort.

Undeniably, this is cozy depicted in a single frame. This space is evidently small, but the place has been utilized for comfort, storage, and entertainment alike. With its bright light from the hanging lamp to the widescreen tv, you can never fathom how much you can do even with small things, can’t you?

Well-appointed. Collected. Chic.
This space shows you can definitely put things of different patterns and colors together, but they can still look good and not messy (only when done right). With its beautiful frame for the mirror to the different patterns and colors of the pillowcase and wall, this interior shows how things can still look good even when they are different.

Getting Inspired: Interior Designer’s Library

GETTING INSPIRED I INTERIOR DESIGN LIBRARY I CMV Interior Designs

Design and Fashion magazines, books, material swatches, and a whole lot more. There are so many ways to get inspired. The design process is the road map to realizing our vision for each of our clients, in a planned, organized, and coordinated documentation of all design elements, selections, and decisions made along the way. It ensures the contractor thoroughly understands the design plan and specifications. The starting line for any interior design project is the design exploration and brainstorming phase. Within this phase, after discussing the project detail, including the client’s preferences, goals, styles, and ideas. We, as designers, then find the freshest inspiration for a brighter idea that matches well with what was discussed with the client. Inspiration comes all around us as designers and it is up to us how we interpret these inspirations into the design. Some more orthodox and conventional way of finding inspirations is by browsing design magazines, design catalogs, social media posts, blogs, books, etc. It doesn’t necessarily have to be a furniture or interior design related per se but again, we can always find inspiration everywhere around us. It’s always a matter of interpretation. It is about how we can dissect and reinterpret a certain idea of what we see, not just how we actually see it.

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. Take in consideration all the elements placed as it will set the overall mood and feel of your home.

Gray can be dramatic and still be subtle, making them cozy and comfortable without being boring or two dimensional. One color designers choose to contrast gray is black. 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.

“A true teacher would never tell you what to do. But he would give you the knowledge with which you could decide what would be best for you to do.”

  • Christopher Pike

“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.”
― Amanda Talbot

“May your walls know joy; may every room hold laughter and every window open to great possibility.”

  • Mary Anne Radmacher

“Understanding the person or people living in a home is a far greater need in design than focusing purely on the aesthetics. The home is designed around emotional needs.”
― Amanda Talbot

“Oh, Sunlight! The most precious gold to be found on Earth.” ― Roman Payne
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.

“The whole difference between construction and creation is exactly this: that a thing constructed can only be loved after it is constructed; but a thing created is loved before it exists.”
-Charles Dickens

“When we build, let us think that we build forever.”

  • John Ruskin

“Each of us is carving a stone, erecting a column, or cutting a piece of stained glass in the constructions of something much bigger than ourselves.”

  • Adrienne Clarkson

Mixing casual and formal pieces keeps the space interesting and stimulating. For example, Using a bench as seating for the dining table intigues people visually, as well as providing additional seating, and ensures that the space is formal without coming off as stiff.
