What Is Interior Design (And Why Can It Really Make You Feel Better)?

Interior design is the art and science of enhancing the interior of a building to achieve a healthier and more aesthetically pleasing environment for the people using the space. An interior designer is someone who plans, researches, coordinates, and manages such enhancement projects. Interior design is a multifaceted profession that includes conceptual development, space planning, site inspections, programming, research, communicating with the stakeholders of a project, construction management, and execution of the design.

Interior designer implies that there is more of an emphasis on planning, functional design and the effective use of space, as compared to interior decorating. An interior designer in fine line design can undertake projects that include arranging the basic layout of spaces within a building. All well as projects that require an understanding of technical issues such as window and door positioning, acoustics, and lighting.

Although an interior designer may create the layout of a space, they may not alter load-bearing walls without having their designs stamped for approval by a structural engineer. Interior designers often work directly with architects, engineers and contractors.

Let’s understand it better

Interior designers must be highly skilled in order to create interior environments that are functional, safe, and adhere to building codes, regulations and ADA requirements. They go beyond the selection of color palettes and furnishings and apply their knowledge to the development of construction documents, occupancy loads, healthcare regulations and sustainable design principles. As well as the management and coordination of professional services including mechanical, electrical, plumbing, and life safety—all to ensure that people can live, learn or work in an innocuous environment that is also aesthetically pleasing.

Color in interior design

Color is a powerful design tool in decoration, as well as in interior design, which is the art of composing and coordinating colors together to create a stylish scheme on the interior architecture of the space.

It is essential to interior designers to acquire a deep experience with colors, understand their psychological effects, and understand the meaning of each color in different locations and situations in order to create suitable combinations for each place.

Combining colors together could result in creating a state of mind as seen by the observer, and could eventually result in positive or negative effects on them. Colors make the room feel either more calm, cheerful, comfortable, stressful, or dramatic. Color combinations make a tiny room seem larger or smaller. So it is for the Interior design profession to choose the appropriate colors for a place towards achieving how clients would want to look at, and feel in, that space.

For example

If you don’t like a specific musical style, the theater bores you, or you’re not attracted to works of art, you can almost always avoid them. Architecture, however, is different. A poorly thought-out project will affect the lives of many people consistently and for a long time. With interiors, this effect is even more amplified. Humanity is spending more and more time indoors, which directly impacts our well-being and health.

In periods of compulsory retirement, as in the current pandemic of Covid-19, we gain a sense of how important interior spaces are for our well-being and even for the prevention of diseases. Designing an indoor environment is a huge responsibility for a professional. An interior designer must plan, research, coordinate, and manage these projects to obtain an adequately healthy and aesthetically pleasing environment for the people who use the space. But how do we do it, when there is only few or no resources available ?

A SALAD A DAY KEEPS DISEASE AND AGING AT BAY

This green salad recipe is simple, but it’s still packed with delicious textures and flavors. It’s a perfect side dish – you can serve it with almost anything and everything!

On the lookout for a super side salad to accessorize with all your meals? 

Well, I got it covered for you, May I present, my new very favorite one: this incredible chopped salad. It’s classy and tight. Last month I served this salad at a dinner party. Wow! What’s in this salad? was murmured around the table. That’s when you know a recipe is a keeper! It looks unassuming, but it’s one of our favorites to date.

  • What carries this green salad is its tangy and zesty flavor, full of lemon, white vinegar, sesame seeds and balanced with a touch of olive oil. Fresh basil, mint, parsley, and oregano bring in an earthy flair.

Other than the dressing, this chopped salad is just a matter of, well, chopping up all the ingredients! Here I’ve chosen ingredients that vibe well together with lettuce salad. You can feel free to customize the veggies in this chopped salad to your liking… but I found this combination to be just about perfect and simple.

Crunchy Veggies: lettuce, cucumber, onion, tomato.

Leafy green vegetables are nutrient rich because leaves contain the light-catching, energy-converting machinery of plants.  Many of the health benefits that leafy greens provide come from phytonutrients, unique compounds that provide protection for plants. These compounds are becoming recognized as part of a nutritious diet that promotes long-term health. Phytonutrients can act as antioxidants, which help to prevent chronic diseases like cancer and heart disease. 

Lettuce, the most commonly consumed leafy vegetable, provides about seven calories per 1 cup serving. When it comes to satisfying your appetite, it helps to eat foods high in volume but low in calories like lettuce. Lettuce is not typically a stand alone vegetable. It is usually served with an array of other vegetables and fruits in a salad and lettuce is often used to add a crunch to sandwiches, hold a variety of fillings as a wrap, or provide color as a garnish.

Here are few amazing benefits of salad :

1. A NATURAL SOURCE OF FIBER

Your leafy greens and raw veggies are a superb source of natural fiber, and consuming enough fiber each day has several health advantages:

  • Fiber helps to reduce LDL or “bad” cholesterol.
  • It helps to control blood sugar.
  • Adequate fiber intake helps with weight loss and healthy weight maintenance.
  • It normalizes bowel movements, and aids in the prevention of bowel disease.

2. NUTRITIONAL BENEFITS OF FRESH FRUITS AND VEGETABLES

The idea that fresh vegetables and fruits are essential to our good health and well-being isn’t anything we haven’t heard before, but it’s good to be reminded of it every so often. The following quote is from an article at the Harvard School of Public Health:

“A diet rich in vegetables and fruits can lower blood pressure, reduce risk of heart disease and stroke, prevent some types of cancer, lower risk of eye and digestive problems, and have a positive effect upon blood sugar which can help keep appetite in check”

3. LOAD UP ON SALADS FOR WEIGHT CONTROL

Eating a fiber-rich salad before your entrée will help you to feel full faster, so you’ll consume less calories than you might when a meal is served without this appetizer. The more raw vegetables you can incorporate into your salad, the greater the potential positive effects will be.

4. A DAILY SALAD WILL AID YOUR INTAKE OF HEALTHY FATS

Add a couple of tablespoons of mixed raw or roasted seeds like pumpkin, sesame, sunflower and ground flax or chia to boost your daily intake of good fats. Experimenting with different kinds of oils in your dressings will help with this, too.

5. BUILD STRONG BONES

Low vitamin K levels have been linked with low bone mineral density in women. For healthy bone growth, a recommended full daily serving can be found in just 1 cup of watercress (100%), radicchio (120%) or spinach (170%).

6. PROTECT YOUR PEEPERS

The carotenoids found in the green leafies like spinach, Romaine and Red Lettuce help the eyes to adjust from bright to dark, and to filter out high intensity light levels, protecting them from the formation of damaging free radicals.

Iceberg lettuce is perhaps one of the most popular vegetables, despite being low in overall nutritional content. However, iceberg lettuce has only 2.97g trusted Source of carbohydrates per 100 g. However a person should improve their personal habits in order to be healthy mentally and physically.

Pair it with other vegetables on this list to create a low carb salad with a varied spread of nutrients.

This chopped salad is so tasty, you’ll want to make it for every meal! To mix it up a bit, you could turn it into a main dish salad and eat it for dinner. I’d suggest to:

  • Add protein like hard boiled eggs, seared ahi tuna, or chopped chicken.
  • Serve with a side like cornbread, garlic bread or artisan bread.

Artist’s Tales

Mark Rothko, an American artist who described himself as an “abstract painter”, once said about art that he was not the kind of person interested in the relationship of form, color or similar. He didn’t define himself as an abstractionist, but rather as a person interested only in expressing basic human emotions such as doom, tragedy, ecstasy and so on. This was one person’s vision of art, but what do we mean by art today? Why is defining the concept so difficult? 

What is ART?

Art is a highly diverse range of human activities engaged in creating visual, auditory, or performed artifacts— artworks—that express the author’s imaginative or technical skill, and are intended to be appreciated for their beauty or emotional power.

The oldest documented forms of art are visual arts, which include images or objects in fields like painting, sculpture, printmaking , photography, and other visual media . Architecture is often included as one of the visual arts; however, like the decorative arts, it involves the creation of objects where the practical considerations of use are essential, in a way that they usually are not in another visual art, like a painting.

Traditional vs. Contemporary Art

Traditional art aimed to represent reality or realism through narrative.

Whereas, modern art aimed to throw aside the tradition of the past and experiment with new ways of seeing and with fresh ideas about the nature of materials and functions of art. This type of art played and experimented with more bold and abstract ideas.

This period of art included a number of style’s or movements, including, Impressionism, Post-Impressionism, Fauvism, Cubism, Expressionism, Dadism, Surrealism, Pop Art, and many more. These movements were influenced by a variety of factors such as light, african art, asian art, and artist that were known as ‘Modernist Masters’, for example, Vincent van Gogh, Pablo Picasso, Henri Matisse, Raoul Dufy and many more.

Pablo Picasso

Contemporary art is much more focused on social/society focused. They usually reflect or comment on modern society using new techniques and materials, such as videos/technology. Contemporary art can be completely new, or influenced by past artworks/artists. An example of contemporary artworks that were influence by previous artists/artworks are appropriation artworks, which use old images/subjects to create a new artwork that portrays a new perspective. Some examples of contemporary artists are Damien Hirst, Jean-Michel Basquiat, Marina Abramovic, Dan Christensen and Ronald Davis.
