Interior Design in the Home: 7 Elements of Interior Design

Here we are in 2020!


It is going to be another busy year filled with interesting projects and collaborations. 

Working with my clients, I like to educate them on interior design topic. I want them to have understanding what works and what doesn’t work in their homes and WHY. Understanding how internal space works and how to complement different aspects, helps to improve your lifestyle and mental health in general.

Recently I had a very interesting conversation with AIG about what key elements design consists of and how they are important. If you like design and would like to learn about fundamental principles of design, you should read full interview in the link below. Design is much more than a bit of colour ;)
