Class 5 - The Bones.png
A home is framed by vertical and horizontal elements.

Your home is basically a box. This box is held up by a series of architectural elements – window and door frames, columns, wall panelling, exposed roof beams.  These elements frame the interior spaces and are part of the interior palette. Often they are an expression of the architectural style of the home. The impressive Interior Designer Kelly Hoppen is famous for applying what she calls the “GRID” throughout her interiors.

Class 5 - Contrast.png
There’s always a time to break the rules and create a focal point!

A home with dark door and window frames has a completely different feel to a home with white framing as you can see from the two feature images. All white timber furniture will never look right surrounded by dark architectural framing, nor vice versa. UNLESS… you want to create a focal point and A LITTLE CONTRAST ALWAYS WORKS MAGIC!

To create seamless spaces that blur the line between exterior and interior, repeat architectural elements in the proportions, colours and materials of your furniture and cabinetry.

So join us in INTERIOR DESIGN CLASSES and learn how to make your home sing!  Linda
