More than 1 million people worldwide are taking the plunge into design, and a few lucky ones are choosing a style called interior design.
The term “interior” is now so widely used that it has become synonymous with stylish, contemporary, and stylish designs.
A new book titled “Interior Design: A Modern Manifesto” is designed to teach readers how to think about, design, design the way we live our lives, and design our homes for themselves.
“Interiors are so important,” says the book’s author, author of the website, “it’s almost become a cliché.”
So how can you create an attractive, modern and stylish home that will appeal to both the young and old?
There are several essential aspects to a successful home that are designed with the young in mind, the authors say.
“You want a living room that’s full of life, but also has a cool, modern feel,” says author Sarah Schulz.
“That space is where you can connect with people.
You can see your family in the living room.
And it’s the place you want to hang out.”
The book also includes guidelines for designing your home that look like you are living in it.
“When you’re creating a design, you can’t just make something you can hang in your living room,” Schulz says.
“Designers need to be able to build and inhabit their homes to live their lives.”
Designing the right room and layout of the home is also key.
“The way you design your living space is critical to the success of your design,” says Schulz, “because that is the space you need to connect with your family and your friends and the rest of your world.”
Here are some of the tips she gives for creating an attractive and modern home.
Choose your space wisely.
The space you have available to you is critical for a home’s success.
The book recommends designing a room that is as inviting and welcoming as possible.
For the most part, you’ll want a room with a large, open floor plan that is conducive to socializing.
You want the room to be bright and inviting and comfortable.
You don’t want a space where you have to use the bathroom or leave the living space.
Instead, you want a place where you are able to relax and have fun.
A room that has a large open, open plan is a great place to play with friends or family.
You also want the space to be small, with the same size furniture you’d normally find in your home.
Consider furniture options.
The type of furniture you choose is a critical part of your home’s design.
“It’s really about how you choose,” says John Schulz of the Design and Build Center, a firm that provides design advice for home builders.
“A lot of people don’t think about it, but a lot of furniture makes a huge difference.”
For example, “a room is a space in which you can spend time with friends and family, and you can go to the gym or a yoga class,” Schutz says.
In addition to furniture choices, you should consider where you would like to have a TV.
“What are you most likely to want to watch in the room?,” he says.
That could be music, video games, or movies.
If you are spending a lot time in the same room, you may want to consider a bigger, more expansive TV. 3.
Think about furniture color and design.
There are so many different furniture colors and designs out there, and it can be hard to decide on what to choose.
Schulz suggests choosing a light, neutral color that matches your decor, so that it will feel comfortable.
“For a home with a big, open space, you might want something that’s a bit more casual and subdued, like a brown or gray,” he explains.
“Or you might choose something more vibrant, like an orange or black.”
You also might want a light-colored rug that will compliment your walls.
“If you’re designing for a large space, a big rug is really important,” Schul says.
A big, soft rug is great because it’s easier to work with and will add a sense of permanence to the space.
“Once you choose a rug, it’s really hard to go back to something that isn’t a solid color,” he adds.
Get creative with the lighting.
“In a large home, it can take hours to find the right lighting for the room,” says Kristin Miller, owner of Miller Lighting, which specializes in home improvement projects.
“Lighting and design are really important.
You need to make sure that everything is visible and it’s in the right place, and then you have a place for people to come and enjoy the view.”
For instance, “the space should be dark enough to feel like the room is empty, and not so bright that people can’t see you,” Miller says
