We wanted to do something a little fun and different in this week's blog post so we're coming at you with an A-Z list of design terms! Drum roll please....
Are you surprised this is what we chose for A? Accessorizing is definitely one of the final stages (if not the final stage) of the design process, but good accessories totally pull the design together
One of the key elements of design!
Adding pops of color here and there is definitely a must, whether it's bright or muted
All window treatments make a difference and drapery definitely isn't for every style of design, but it's another element that can really pull a space together!
Elevations are flat drawings viewed from the horizontal plane (usually each wall). These are super important because they give clients an idea and more importantly they're great for contractors to refer back to
Finishes refer to any surface material, color, or stain
That stubborn stuff between your tile that's hard to clean! ;) If done correctly, grout can really make the tile pop or look super seamless, depending on the look
The hue refers to a color tone, so basically the color itself. It's important to know your colors in order to match finishes correctly!
Interior design is an international trade, interpreted differently by many. There are also very many beautifully well-made products around the world
Intricate fabric designs, more suitable for a transitional/traditional look
Where the heart of the home is, and usually our favorite to design!
There were a lot of different options for L, but ultimately interior design should reflect and encompass the clients' lifestyles
One of the more popular design styles, it's amazing because modern design can pair well/be incorporated with many other styles
Shelving built into the wall (recessed), usually in showers to eliminate taking up space in the overall footprint of the space
O- Occasional Furniture
All of the pieces that get used a lot but aren't a necessity, but we definitely feel like they complete the space....i.e. coffee tables, end tables, console tables, etc.
Another very important design element, making sure all furniture and objects are not only proportionate to the space, but to each other
A thinner bed covering usually to add a pop of color or pattern to complement main bedding
One of our favorite pieces to shop for! Rugs ALWAYS complete the space
Everyone has a different style and it's our job to help them find it or see it come to life!
T- Throw Pillow
Some people love 'em some people hate 'em, we LOVE them. Throw pillows are sucha fun way to add color, texture, pattern, you name it!
Any form of furniture that is covered in a type of fabric
Where you get ready in the morning and at night! The whole area of cabinetry, mirrors, countertops, and sinks in a bathroom is considered the vanity
It has come such a long way! Wallcoverings are perfect for bringing in something different to the space
A style chair predominantly used in classic farmhouse and traditional settings, usually the dining chairs
Our job is all about YOU! Your home, your decisions, your way.
Designs should zest up your life!
We hope you all enjoyed this funky blog post! Let us know if you can come up with any other terms for each letter! As always, keep up with us on our Instagram @naomiewertinteriors to see all the behind the scenes of our projects. Until next time....
