EMOTIONAL INTERIOR DESIGN, PERCEPTION AND SENSATION IN INTERIOR SPACES
Traditionally, in interior design, aesthetics have been worked on, how to achieve a certain visual result, pleasant for the client, leaving "forgotten" their perceptions and sensations both of the set and of each of the elements that dress the space, prioritizing comfort before emotional health.
What we seek with emotional interior design is to delve into the study of interior spaces to turn them into creators of positive emotions, places that improve energy and where you come to feel yourself, without forgetting that comfort will come from our well-being. physical as well as emotional.
In our day to day we spend most of the time between walls, either in our house or in other buildings. And only in our particular space can we choose what we want to feel, whether through color, shape, materials, ...
We should not miss the opportunity to create our sensory space, vital, optimistic, comfortable, ..., for which we will apply modern knowledge on the psychology of color, ergonomics, textures, ...
Regarding the application of color, one of the most important points when creating a home for emotions, we have to consider two aspects. On the one hand, the psychology of color helps us to produce concrete effects on people, and on the other, chromotherapy helps us to influence mood states.
Combining colors in a space can make us want to stay in one place or not be there. In addition, the interrelation between color and light, its balance, are the great ally of the emotional interior designer to transmit nuances or create sensations, such as the perception of the dimensions or proportions of a room.
Aesthetics is another aspect to consider. A baroque environment, full of ornaments produces sensations different from those of simple environments, with straight and refined lines, which provide cleanliness and harmony in the space, and most of the time functionality.
This last aesthetic aspect is complemented by emotional decoration, "filling" your living space with pieces that are timeless for you, so you don't get tired of them, achieving harmony by adapting your home and its decoration with your emotional self.
Materials must be natural. Construction elements and furniture must seek a return to nature. For example, the use of 100% natural linen fabrics or furniture will avoid adding harmful components to your home. In this sense, plants are a fundamental element in the philosophy of emotional interior design, since they bring naturalness and reduce artificiality to homes. Choosing the right one is very important, because in addition to purifying the air, they also eliminate substances that can be harmful.
Aromatherapy is another aspect to consider. It is about achieving an improvement in sensations and greater comfort when you enter a home or a specific room. Pleasant smells have an unconscious effect on us, since our body secretes a series of endorphins when a smell is pleasant to us. When choosing the fragrance of a home, in addition to being to our liking, we must take into account that it is neither very strong nor heavy, since it can tire us.
We have to use emotional interior design as the tool that makes our home a reflection of our lifestyle, that meets the present and future needs of both us and our families.Back
