INTERIOR DESIGN PRINCIPLES
1.BALANCE
• In design, balance creates a feeling of equilibrium. It is all about equalizing or approximating the visual weight of objects. Balance is created not just through shape, but through color, pattern, and texture as well.
Using Visual Weight in Decorating
• Darker shades, high intensity colors and warm hues have more weight than lighter shades, cooler hues and low intensity colors.
• Heavy or unusual patterns and forms also seem to have more weight as they attract more attention.
• Transparent forms appear lighter than solid forms.
• Reflective surfaces seem to have less weight.
• Heavy textures visually weigh more than smoother ones.
