Creating an interiorscape to match your home and business personality
Interiorscapes designs are created especially for your space’s individual aesthetic and needs.
Whether you are standing in the middle of a mall, a hotel, your own or another’s private home, eating in a restaurant, sitting at long tables in a law office, corporate headquarters or a swankier and more open dot.com workspace you can feel the space’s character in your gut. Each space has its own flavor, its own energy if you will, and it’s as important to take that into consideration, as it is to design to the matter and material in the space. For example, businesses have their own corporate identity, and the office and client meeting spaces should reflect that identity.
How can you plan an interiorscape for all those individual elements?
It’s as easy as creating a wardrobe based on what feels good to you. Let’s explore.
Take a look around you. Are you surrounded by a sense of formality? Heavy curtains? Dark wallpaper? Are there lots of dark furnishings and crystal bowls? That would be a sure sign that the atmosphere you are sitting in is formal. For example, it’s an office or the dining room in your home you’ll sense a hushed tone and other than rather deep, rich color tones, everything is rather muted. Heavy curtains line the walls diffusing the light to a dim candlelit feeling. This offers a comfort in the stillness.

Now think of a beach house or a casual office with a more open floor plan. It’s a place where there is more interaction between people and soft comfortable furnishings one can throw their feet up on and relax. The color tones might be bolder and more whimsical. The windows are thrown open, light is streaming in and there’s an abundance of activity. As common as it is for all of us to have different tastes in clothing, some of us are more comfortable in formal settings and some in casual. Similarly to how we dress ourselves to express our own personality, so we must dress our spaces for the interactions they allow.
A formal office will want a plant or container symmetry. For instance, a pair of Raphis at the entry will look beautiful but they must match in height and density or else the formal room will feel lopsided. Another option would be Pothos, groomed into perfect balls for a formal space, or long free-style runners fitting to a casual environment. In a formal setting, the pots generally look neatest when they’re all one style.
For a more casual office, the variety of sizes, styles and containers is as broad as one’s imagination. In an informal setting mixing it up is the name of the game. Adding fun elements and tons of color make lighten the already casual aspect of the space and create an even heightened sense of beauty and fun.
