Interior & Exterior Design

Interior design is the process of shaping the experience of interior space, through the manipulation of spatial volume as well as surface treatment. Not to be confused with interior decoration, interior design draws on aspects of environmental psychology, architecture, and product design in addition to traditional decoration

Interior design is a creative practice that analyzes programmatic information, establishes a conceptual direction, refines the design direction, and produces graphic communication and construction documents

Interior design or decoration is the art of decorating a room so that it is attractive, easy to use, and functions well with the existing architecture. The goal of interior decoration is to provide a certain “feel” for the room; it encompasses applying wallpaper, painting walls and other surfaces, choosing furniture and fittings, such as light fixtures, floor plans and providing other decorations for the area such as paintings, sculptures and carpets.

Although the terms interior decorating and

Interior Design Trends For 2020 From Milan Design Week 2019

What is a trend? Why every year design experts write interior trend reports like this one after Milan Design Week is over? Seeing blog posts with titles like which trend is IN and which one is OUT is just ridiculous. We cannot set a starting date of a particular trend like, “Hey, this year marble is out so you may throw your table away” or “velvet is a huge trend in 2019”. Wait, wasn’t velvet dominant in 2017 or 2018? However, what is exciting about trend-seeking, is that we can observe how materials, colors, and textures will cohabitate with humans during the years to come as well as adapting it to our needs.

Exterior House Colors Kelly Moore

Selling your home in the present intense market implies that venders need to exploit each promoting edge that they can. Nothing can supplant the effect that the initial introduction of a house has on forthcoming purchasers, regardless of whether they visit the house face to face or see an image of it on a numerous posting site. A splendid, well-thought about house draws in purchasers; while a pitiful, disregarded home is avoided.

Tight funds, be that as it may, make it hard to store total makeovers with arranging and entire house painting. Driving around neighborhoods where numerous houses have been available for a considerable length of time if not years, I have distinguished seven different ways that a painter could make a critical improvement in the control intrigue of their homes absent much cost.

Contemporary Style Interior Design | LoveToKnow

Clean, smooth surfaces, and an uncluttered appearance characterize contemporary style interior design. The modern look is a world away from the fussy interiors beloved of our ancestors, but contemporary design doesn’t have to mean a home you’re afraid to live in.

The Basics of Contemporary Style Interior Design

While modern style is as rich and varied as its traditional counterpart, there are a few things that most contemporary styled homes have in common:


Forget clashing patterns and garish patterns: contemporary homes are characterized by their cool, muted color palettes, featuring a lot of whites, creams, and darker shades, including brown, taupe and mauves. Sticking to this very modern color scheme, however, doesn’t have to be boring: try adding a splash of color to your white walls with a vibrant painting, or add a brightly colored chair of sofa to draw the eye. Accents of color can also

21 Contemporary Exterior Design Inspiration

We mostly talk about the interiors when we talk about house design and the lifestyle of the people living in the house. But, it is the exterior that marks the first impressions and then the interior. An exterior designer fills in the gap of expertise between an interior designer and a landscaper. If you get a good exterior designer, they can help you find all the companies or resources you need to find the right look for your house. For example, they may know that the WDR Roofing Company is able to install the style of roof you would like and have all the correct resources to finish the project.

Interior designers can be excellent for fabrics and seating purchases, but designing outdoor fireplaces or conversation pits may require knowledge and abilities they don’t possess. Planning to make a square look exterior design for your house is a great idea,

Tips on Adding a Family Room Addition to your House

Tips on Adding a Family Room Addition to your House

by: Nazim Nice

As families expand, so do their spatial needs. Suddenly a house that seemed adequately sized for two or three may feel tight when the family increases in size. If a home already has enough bedrooms, a family room addition is often a useful addition to increase the amount of space in a home and increase the functionality.

Where an addition is placed on a house will vary depending on the layout of the home and actual site conditions. If there is space on the site that allows for a family room addition on the main level, I often look for a location near the kitchen. If there is no space on the site, we’ll either look at a location such as in an unfinished basement, or consider adding onto a second story. One recent trend is locating
