Interior Design Philosophy Practiced by The Interia – Interior Designers
Our approach to design is not very different from a writer’s approach to writing. To start with, we begin our work on a blank sheet of paper. Within this space we shape abstract ideas into existence, and give them a reality of texture. We summon a rainbow of colours that inspire, and harness the power of light to extend their meaning. And we impress a finesse of finish at the end, because we like our designs to have happily‐eveafters. It is this intimate relationship with the elements of Space, Shape, Colour, Texture, Light and Finish that gives each home a rich story to tell.
Elements of Space Interior Design
There is no limit to the many beautiful things that can be said about physical space. It emboldens, enlivens, embraces, envelops, empowers, and when in abundance enhances the experience of life. But perhaps its most beautiful quality is its relativity.
A tiny balcony with a view can present the world before you. A walkin closet can offer more happiness than your living room. An infinity pool can be a watery cul‐de‐sac in which there’s only room enough for two.

Elements of Form Interior Design
Bringing form to an inanimate object is one of the highest callings of design.
Michelangelo once said, “I saw the angel in the marble and carved until I set him free.” What greater joy than to give life and form where previously there was none? Wrought iron is twisted to release a candelabrum. A block of wood is chipped at until it releases a rocking chair. Cane endures a myriad of cuts and weaves to release a bedside table.

Elements of Color Interior Design
The power of colour extends beyond the visual. Colours have wavelengths the way sounds do. A sunset red can scream louder than an incensed mob. Colours influence moods the way music does. The right colours in the right set of skilled hands can make a dungeon seem like a cathedral.
Colours tell stories the way writers do with the words. A rainbow in your window has a new story to tell every time. Colours work miracles the way physicians do.

Elements of Texture Interior Design
Perhaps the closest encounter you can have with a physical entity is with its texture. How doesthe upholstery feel as you run your fingers over it? What intricate personality lies etched in the carvings of this old rosewood table? How do your senses perceive the individual richness of each crystal in the chandelier?
What stories would you hear if these stone walls could speak? Would you hear a warm welcome if you put your ear to this panel of oak that is your front door?

Elements of Light Interior Design
It is said that in Hollywood, the difference between a hero and a villain is in the lighting. What does that have to do with interior design? Well, when we’re talking about soft light and harsh, naked light and filtered, natural light and synthetic, it has everything to do with design.
Lighting can give a cherubic innocence to a room at one time, and a seductive mystery at another.

Elements of Finesse Interior Design
A design without finishing is like a sentence without any punctuation. A good design can always be made better with good finishing, just the way the right punctuation brings out the right kind of meaning in a sentence. Should the finish on the rich leather upholstery exclaim, or should it question?
Should the wall paintings have frames that highlight in bold, or stylize in italics? Should the brass pots adorning the staircase quote its interpretation of the room, or hide it?
