Maybe we don't observe this, but interior design is influencing our subconscious, so the choices that you make when deciding how your home will look have an effect on your emotions, thoughts, feelings, behaviors and perceptions.
A quality design is one that fits the owners needs. There are three basic design techniques – color, shapes and texture
Color is a very strong element that has an major impact on your mood. Cooler colors (blues, greens, purples) often provide an inviting, professional and relaxed feeling. In contrast, it can be used to give a very cold and unfriendly feeling as well. Warmer colors (yellows, oranges, reds) are soothing, warm, and give a sense of creativity but can also give off negative feelings such as anger and stress. That's why we should not exaggerate with the use of bold colors and remember: three color picks are better than one (proportion: 60%-30%-10%).
Understanding and implementation of interior design psychology has the ability to impact and improve the performance, efficiency and wellbeing of the individual inhabitant.

Inspiration Of The Day
“Punches of color keep a room feeling youthful and engaging.” — Christina Murphy
Modern interior design and home decorating with bright and warm colors create happy, cheerful and optimistic atmosphere in your home. Colorful interior design stimulates the mind and generates physical activity or as said Christina Murphy "youth". Depending on your taste you can go with any color, just make sure it’s so bright that it catches attention. There are no doubts that colors make rooms appear finished.
The face of Dale Chihuly (American glass sculptor) was severely cut by glass and he was blinded in his left eye. This made me think on how unique we are, because we are special creatures that can distinguish colors! The human eye distinguishes over 10 million different colors. Isn't it amazing? Each of it has its charm and beauty. Don't ever be afraid to use a color you like in your interior design. You can create an instant change and add personality to a room thanks to colors.
Everybody knows that paint creates our mood. Pinches of pasional red on white walls and suddenly the feeling is hot and you feel excited and energized. Yellow give us a warm feelingand inspires optimism. Calm the mood with green hues. Blue nuances helps us to have a better concentration and feel fresh. Gray balance our emotions and "pacify" us. That's why there doesn't exist "bad" colors!

When I think about these two concepts, to my mind comes such brilliant artist as Michelangelo Buonarroti and Leonardo da Vinci. They fully understood the unique combination of art and science and how important it was to think innovatively. Renaissance is the period when science and art began to live together. That's why we shouldn't ask ourselves is design a science or an art; because design is a combination of art and science in the most inspirational and creative ways in order to keep innovation flowing.
Science helps us create a lot of beautiful things, pieces of art as well as all of the tools and things that fulfill our aesthetic needs. The best creations and innovations, though, are those that combine those functions with a form that is pleasing to the eye as well as the hand.

Fall is coming! It's my favorite part of the year, because that morning-evening air and the smell of dry leaves make me feel so fresh, like I am reborn! I associate autumn with a new beginning... New decorative elements, new warm and soft fabric and a cup of hot chocolate :)
There are some color that should prevail in your interior to feel closer to this wonderful time of the year. These colors are gold, orange and brown.
In decoration you can use such elements as twigs, wheat, burlap fabric, wine corks some fruits like apples, grapes and of course pumpkin. Here I found some interesting DIY projects with these elements that will inspire you to refresh your home!

Perfection is a concept which is far too abstract for anyone to strive for. Perfection is completely impossible to obtain, because it's a relative thing and we can't even define this word. But we should always tend to something better because we can only perceive changes (in our homes). That's why we shouldn't be afraid to try new things, new colors,new accessories etc.
It's ok to mismatch, the most important thing is to feel comfortable at home.
