Interior design is a multi–faceted profession in which creative and technical solutions are applied within a structure to achieve a built interior environment and home lifestyle enhancement.
Architecture is sometimes poetically called stiff music. And it is true: the impact of the building’s exterior and its interior especially on the human mind can be compared to the impact of a melody. Very often even a little detail can cause melancholy or vice-versa, bring the feeling of cheerfulness, burst of power and joy.
The interior designer process follows a systematic and coordinated methodology, including research, analysis, and integration of knowledge into the creative process, whereby the needs and resources of the client are satisfied to produce an interior space that fulfills the project goals
Psychological approach to interior design includes two basic functions. The most widely spread and common is a harmonizing function when the decor of a room or the whole house reflects its master’s temperament, his habits, his world outlook and mind. The task of such a decor is to create the atmosphere of harmony and calm. Bold and nontrivial solutions can hardly be appropriate. Such an approach actually assumes interior inactivity towards its master. Owing to optimal combination of shades and structures of decoration materials as well as decor and accessories elements, the interior is adapted to an individual and continues his inner ego.
The second and more interesting function can be called stimulating. Such an approach assumes some feedback between the premises design and a human mind. Nowadays design plays an active part: it favourably emphasizes certain features of character and temper of its master or vice versa it smoothes and levels unfavourable features. For example, such an interior can balance an impetuous choleric or encourage a melancholic inclined to depression. It is not a secret that feng-shui popularity today owes a lot to the variety of methods for arranging stimulating space offered by this ancient study. But feng-shui successors look more deeply, claiming that favourable arrangement of space can magically influence not only the minds of house dwellers, but also the events of their lives, their personal success and success in business.
