Interior Designer Elkhart Goshen Indiana
Shape and form are part of the design elements interior designer's use to create beauty.
When we think of shape, we think of a two-dimensional outline - often seen as a geometric figure, but form is an extension of shape and is actually the three-dimensional configuration.
.Why is this important? Because form, just like all design elements, have the power to persuade us to feel and respond to our surroundings.
There are several kinds of shapes, such as rectangles, squares, triangles, circles and other geometric shapes or meandering, curved or angular shapes that do not fit neatly into geometry. But when these geometric planes are given a third dimension, they become forms such as cubes, cones, spheres or forms that are organic or curving.
The key to selecting forms is to balance them against the proportion and scale of the architecture and to select each form to complement the other forms that are nearby.
This is another reason why design drawings are so important to projects - large or small. There are so many lines, shapes, forms, textures, patterns and colors in a single space that all need to be analyzed for the correct proportion and scale making it is difficult at best to visualize how each one works together to create a harmonious situation. Especially when one person's idea of beauty could be different from your own. All of the design elements are equally important to creating architectural harmony for your canvas.
If you'd like some help visualization your shapes in your space and getting your canvas right, please send me an email for more information.

About this blog...
I began writing this blog in May 2016 after discovering that my mother always wanted to be a writer. She has Alzheimer's disease and she'll never realize her dream. Sometimes in our deepest grief we are motivated to encourage others to fearlessly be themselves so that their gifts and stories are shared. I mean, how else can we change the world?. So I began to record the things that reflect who I am and what is important to me, because one day my memories too, may be gone and what would that mean to the people God gave me to care for and the good works He gave me to do? So, here is where I share the important stuff so that you can learn real design, not decorator tricks, but fundamental and salient concepts to apply so that you can create your own exemplary home and so that my family and I can remember the life we lived and created here in our home, our sacred place. Because my work is important, this is also where I share my favorite design projects and how good design enhanced their lives as well. I hope you're inspired and encouraged as I share my memories, my work, my mission & my life. Many blessings, (Numbers 6: 24-26)
