Principles of Design

Principles of Design

The Principles are concepts used to organize or arrange the structural elements of design. Again, the way in which these principles are applied affects the expressive
content, or the message of the work.

The principles are:

  • Balance
  • Proportion
  • Rhythm
  • Emphasis
  • Unity

  • Balance is the concept of visual equilibrium, and relates to our
    physical sense of balance. It is a reconciliation of opposing forces in a
    composition that results in visual stability. Most successful compositions
    achieve balance in one of two ways: symmetrically or
    asymmetrically. Balance in a three dimensional object is easy to understand; if balance isn’t achieved, the object tips over. To understand
    balance in a two dimensional composition, we must use our imaginations to carry
    this three dimensional analogy forward to the flat surface.

    Symmetrical balance can be described

    Mid-Century Modern Design & Decorating Guide

    The furniture and decor introduced in the 1950s and 1960s were clean, sophisticated, and inclusive. Despite the passage of time, mid-century designs have remained a staple in interior architecture. In this guide, we’ll cover the fundamentals of how to realize a mid-century modern decor. You’ll find practical examples to draw ideas and inspirations, as well as shopping tips.

    To make designing your dream home easier, we made a collection of must-have mid-century modern furniture. Most of the products you see in this post are from our collection.

    Mid-Century Modern Furniture & Decor

    1.  Interior Design Inspirations

    To kick things off, here are some great mid-century modern interior design examples to give you some inspiration and ideas. Remember that great interior design draws bits and pieces of influence from different styles (read my post reviewing the 8 main design styles), so some of these examples have elements that are outside of the mid-century boundaries.

    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.
