Combining the elements of what makes a beautiful Interior Design are similar when creating a beautiful work of Art.
One of the ways to create Visual Excitement is by Contrast. For example:
- Contrasting deep rich colors with soft muted colors
- Contrasting large scale upholstered seating with small scale tables
- Contrasting large scale geometric fabrics with small scale patterned fabrics
- Contrasting clean contemporary furniture with detailed traditional furniture
Each element, while unique, enhances the other and therefore magnifies their differences.
As an Interior Designer and Mixed Media Artist, I am always thinking of these elements in my work – Color, Contrast, Texture, and Scale.
