DESIGN PHILOSOPHY

I believe that every interior should embrace a simple, sophisticated, and refreshing environment. Everything I create should meet the clients style and personal needs. By designing an atmosphere that reflects an individuals personality and enhances the functionality of the space, the user is left with a fun and organized environment that is truly their own unique home.

Interior design is more than meets the eye; It has the power to change the world if done properly. That is why sustainability is such an important aspect to incorporate as much as possible.

My design philosophy is grounded in the idea that the final product should support a safe and healthy environment for whoever inhabits the space. Having a balance of functionality, comfort, and luxury is something I also strive for in all my designs.

Three factors inspire my design choices; The natural beauty of our world, the clients style, and the purpose for the space. These three factors ...

Philosophy Statement

In the creative side of the world, it is fairly common for one to be “innovatively altered” and “unusual” if a designer or an artist. As designers, we are imaginative individuals that recognize a level of emotion beyond the structure needed to design for function and safety. The strong connection to emotion is what compel us through our design process. Designers are alike for which we do not design for ourselves; we create for others. Some designers and artists may be “unusual” and “strangely different” but it is not a flaw. This is part of the individual nature ...

Design Philosophy

IN THE WISE WORDS OF ROBIN SIEGERMAN, “DESIGN IS ABOUT MAKING PEOPLE HAPPY, EITHER FUNCTIONALLY, AESTHETICALLY OR EMOTIONALLY.” OUR PERSONAL SPACE CAN REFLECT WHAT WE FEEL ON THE INSIDE BUT ALSO WHO WE ARE AS PEOPLE. MY DESIGN PHILOSOPHY IS TO CREATE AN AURA FROM WHICH NO INDIVIDUAL EVER WANTS TO ESCAPE. I WILL ACCOMPLISH THIS THROUGH SMART AND SIMPLE PLACEMENT OF SPACES, COLORS AND TEXTURES. I WANT EACH SPACE, HOME, AND OFFICE TO HAVE ITS OWN LIFE THAT EMBRACES THE HUMAN WHO OCCUPIES IT. MY DESIGNS WILL BE SIMPLE BUT SIGNIFICANT AND HARMONIZE THE MOOD WITH THE ...

DESIGN PHILOSOPHY

"Interior Design is not always what we see on TV. The beauty of this career is much more than aesthetics like people think. Design is all about the process behind the results. Great design considers the function and human use. The future and sustainability should always be considered in design because the goal is to create spaces that can be used for years and years to come. To become a great designer, one must consider the wants of the client before the wants of oneself. As a designer, the goal is to design spaces that are livable and ...

Design Philosophy

My, design philosophy is based on the belief that every space should reflect the needs and personality of those in it. A well-designed space should embody a timeless, functional design while having a unique interior that is comfortable, livable, and nurturing. Every space should include natural elements to express the nurturing qualities of the earth and should increase the mental and physical wellness of those occupying it. It is not enough to have a luxurious space; instead a well-designed interior must give the user a sense of comfort and livability along with being aesthetically beautiful. It is of ...

I value design as a tool to create spaces that help my client live more comfortable lives. First, I believe that to create a better tomorrow we need to construct sustainably today to preserve our remaining resources. Secondly, I believe that spaces should be designed universally so that they support the client throughout the lifespan. Lastly, I believe that both sustainable and universally designed spaces should reflect imagination and beauty; everyone is entitled to good design.

MY DESIGN PHILOSOPHY

Midway through my college career, I began working as an assistant to an Independent Living Specialist. He is very active in assisting disabled individuals find and receive the resources they need to live independently. He had me drawing floor plans to show his disabled clients how to follow the concept of "Aging in Place." The concept basically means that a home should function for the length of a life, childhood to old age. By incorporating simple elements such as 3-foot doors, walls enforced for handrails, and at least one entrance without a step you can eliminate some ...

Design Philosophy

As an interior designer my main focus is to design an environment that will enhance the quality of life and culture of the occupants and still be aesthetically pleasing. A design philosophy varies from designer to designer but our end goal is all the same; we care about the health, safety, and welfare of the occupants that will inhabit the space as well as the beauty of the space. I am hoping to pursue hospitality design so my personal design philosophy is to create a beautiful yet function environment that has the comfort of home combined with a ...

DESIGN PHILOSOPHY

Design is creating a space that is sustainable, serviceable, and stylish. Design reflects where clients have been and what inspires them. There are countless styles from which people may choose to reflect who they are. The designs must be innovative and efficient throughout the design process to manage client requests with good design practice. The result is a space that is not only aesthetically pleasing and functional but good for their health, and for the environment.

Design Philosophy

I believe that design should provide creative solutions to suit the needs of others. Designers should observe and understand the problems and approach it in a creative perspective. Not only should it be designed for present, but also the future. By thinking long term, I believe that a designer is preparing for what can happen. A well thought out design should be timeless yet be unique, functional and comfortable. I also believe that simplicity is key to design. Adding a lot of elements can overpower the main focus of the design. Designers should not only collaborate with other ...

I have been a designer all my life, examining objects and structures by the very small details that make them what they are. I love to create, reinvent, and modify any project that comes into my hands. I love how things work and are put together. I’ve always wanted to create designs that would make the public think in how they live their lives and how to treat the world around them. I want to be a designer that changes the world and helps those who can’t help themselves. I want to make the world a better place ...

“Design is a not a preconceived idea or concept. Design is a collaboration to devise a plan intended for the space to be functional, show technical knowledge, implements form and code while being aesthetically pleasing to the eye. By executing these key areas, each project created will be practical and pleasing to anyone that interacts with the space.”

I believe it is human nature to want to change the world, to leave your mark. An interior designer has many options to do this through codes, sustainability, and collectively changing the way humans interact in a space. While the aesthetics and functionality of a space are the main goals of a design there are many opportunities to improve on a way of life and this is what I find most important.

I believe quality design does not always have to be expensive. Using things we currently have and creating something else with it is a great way to be sustainable. Not only are you saving money by re-using and sprucing up old items but you are also creating a unique piece that no one else has! Why buy new when you can re-use?

Also pleasing clients is a tough job but my passion for interior design makes me want to achieve the vision that the clients have and create a space of their dreams by doing it with passion or not ...

My design philosophy is to create an area that is not only aesthetically pleasing, but functional. Whether this is residential or commercial, I want you to feel comfortable about your surroundings. I want you to be able to enjoy the environment around you and feel right at home. This can be with commercial design also. I do not want someone to feel as if they are in a hospital. White walls feel institutional. I want to design places that make you feel at ease and comfortable, even if it is a place you do not necessarily want to be, such ...

Most people consider Interior Design to be a luxury and something that only the wealthy and privileged can afford. However, this is not the case; anyone with any budget can have a space that they are proud to call their own. While the wealthy do have the ability to pay to furnish a room without regard to cost, which is not a criteria that alone determines whether or not you have a wonderful space. A more economical family may have to be more prudent with their furnishings purchases, but they still have the right to a beautiful, enjoyable, comfortable home ...
