25sqm Modern Industrial Interior Design

7/28/2022

 






Modern Industrial Interior Design 1 Bedroom Unit turned Studio Unit


I wanted to tell you a design story about a couple who contacted me a few months ago to design their 25sqm Rental Apartment in Manila. 


Let's name them Carl and Carla, both are working overseas, and once they have a newly turned over unit in Manila and are planning their property to be used as a vacation and rental unit. Unfortunately, they have limited time to work on the renovation works while they are back in their hometown. 


They wanted to work first on the design look and when the renovation would start even if they won't be physically there to monitor the project. They wanted to the contractor have the vision that they had for their space. 


Since we are miles away from each other and I can't physically be on-site and manage the project, they availed of our Virtual Interior Design Service to do the planning and Visualization of their space. 


We did a lot of online communication to meet their needs on how the design is and how it's possible to achieve the design and how it will be implemented.


The problem


What pains them is that they won't be there for the whole duration of the project and wanted to convey the correct message to the maker and they want to see the plan and look of their space before it would be implemented sometime in the future and they wanted professional help to ease up their worries. (elow po, clasmeyt!)


They were clear about the 3 dilemmas they are facing that pain them to deal with:

  • Maximizing the space looks very small 
  • the concrete-finished kitchen does not fit how they envisioned,
  • lastly, the window area that has an access to the condenser is very small to lounge or enjoy the busy streets of Manila.

Things they wanted to have and see


They are also clear on what they want us to consider and what they wanted to see in their unit.


  • Modular Kitchen
  • Maximize Storage areas just for anything
  • Work Desk
  • Dining Area for at least 2 people
  • Toilet and Bathroom Essentials
  • Industrial Meet and Movable Furniture
  • Work around the current electrical plans, especially on the ceiling area

How did we help solve their concerns in this project?


They provided all the images and measurements of the space to keep us all align and of course their timely feedback, speaking of online communication.

The Top 3 design dilemmas were addressed by Bringing down the partition and concrete kitchen and working on the remaining area to give each space to have a bigger space and make use of modular cabinetry not just for the kitchen but for the entire unit needs it.

Since they approved the suggestions made, it was easier to work on the available space. 

The solutions


  • Find someone or a company to do the general construction works and cabinetry works.
  • Bring down the partition to make the space bigger
  • Demolish the Concrete Kitchen and replace it with a modular type of cabinetry
  • Make use of the wall for tall and overhead cabinets to fit their requirements such as a Work Desk and Chair, a Media, and a 2-seater dining
  • While the window area has a small table and a chair 
  • The ceiling in concrete finish uses industrial lighting to make it a statement piece since we can't do anything much on the wall area - priorities for the space as considered intensively more than aesthetics.
  • The toilet and bath area were totally revamped as they deemed fit and ensure that it is still on the concept that they envisioned. Tiles and concrete finish with a modern look vanity.

How do you find the outcome of this project?

When is best time to hire interior designer?

7/21/2022


When is the best time to hire an Interior Designer?


Was there a time you wished you hired a professional Interior Designer, sooner? Most clients that I have encountered often hire an interior designer when the unit is ready. Either it can be a home or a commercial building. There are external factors that they hired an interior designer at a later time.


In some few cases, this is where they encountered some dilemma's in these dilemmas are the following:


  1. Budget. They have an unprepared budget base on the ideas they wanted
  2. Timeframe because it also takes time to design, they thought it can be created in a week and implemented the following week after it has been made and these also caused some concerns especially when the unit is used for rental or has to operate the businesses sooner.
  3. People. It takes a village to actually have these works come to life and managing different people for a project can be overwhelming.

Here are some explanations about when is the best time to hire an interior designer:



When is the best time to hire an interior designer?


Interior designers, according to conventional belief, design your house to their taste. The opposite is not anything like the truth.

An interior design team works with you just to know about your hobbies and preferences before designing your home. Using your existing ideas for your place as a starting place, improving them, and creating new ones along such lines might result in an area that reflects your individuality. 


Your home should reflect your unique design, the manner you spend your days, and your overall view of life. If you look around your house and see that it is lacking in vibrancy and individuality, you should hire an interior designer. 


An interior designer may assist you if you used to like your home but have moved on and want a fresh perspective and touch. Some individuals have the skill and patience to devote themselves to selecting décor, hues, and finishes, while others are daunted by the vast array of color and design options available. 


Continue reading to see if you have to employ a specialist in the field.


To properly plan, design, and furnish a house, a condominium unit, a commercial, or even a workspace, there are numerous factors to consider. When you're trying to tackle everything on your own, it might feel overwhelming. This procedure will be guided and navigated for you by a qualified and experienced interior designer.


They are well-versed in the numerous resources they use on a regular basis.

They are well-versed in the numerous resources they use on a regular basis.


Time is money:

Interior designers have worked on home renovation projects before, so they are familiar with the process. They apply their firm knowledge to help you simplify your project and avoid costly mistakes.

For example, expressing your opinion about your bathroom remodeling tile floor after it is installed will be a time-consuming error. An interior designer in Oakland County can assist you in visualizing the adjustments you want to make to the space you're redesigning so you're less likely to alter your mind.


Do you enjoy repurposing your space?


Can you envision how you want your space to look in your spare time? 

Could you design a space entirely out of white, without furniture or finishes, and be happy with the results? 

Many times high at visualizing things in their thoughts, then moving that concept to papers to express themselves, and lastly into the real world. You may not need the skills of an interior designer if you enjoy these activities and the process. You may already own all of the tools need to begin developing your own design concepts.


Interior design and decoration


You may wish to keep the majority of your decor and furnishings, but add items strategically to make your home appear trendier in some circumstances. In this instance, you have the option of doing it yourself or hiring an interior decorator/stylist who can assist you with your job.

Styling and designing your own house may be a joyful and fulfilling activity that allows you to connect more deeply with your own place. Anecdotes about your buying and style adventures are often wonderful conversation starters.

 

To solve your challenge, you'll need to think beyond the box:


A tiny area necessitates inventive and ingenious solutions. Furthermore, certain regions have symmetry and illumination challenges. Trying to do the area yourself with minimal expertise and skills might end up being a disaster. 


An interior designer, on the other hand, is armed with tools and then-out ideas that can elevate a room's spirits without breaking the bank. Playing around with colors and lighting effects can bring a lot of personality to a space.


With all the given factors and considerations we have shared with you. When is the best time to hire an interior designer? 


  1. For Condominium Units. You can hire them 1 or 2 months prior to turning over your unit from the developer. 
  2. For Houses built from scratch, Right after the Structural Engineer and Architect have completed their work because the Architect and the designer will work hand-in-hand, especially on the technical side of the project.
  3. For Projects that you find urgent to finish after it was turned over. 2 Things to consider. 

    1. Either you decide that the design is based on a budget you have set and are willing to invest, or
    2. You decide based on the look regardless of the possible cost. This means you have a budget on hand and are willing to invest based on the criteria you have set.

We work with the later selection, which is based on design then we discuss the budget on which one you are willing to invest. This is also a better option for clients who wanted to know their interior design investment's worth.


If you are to hire right now, what do you think is the best time for you to hire a professional, and what is the status of your real estate investment?

What Red Color Combinations Works for you!

7/14/2022




Why do you get the Red Color Schemes all wrong!



Red Color is the symbol of love, rage, anger, and passion. It is widely used to create a sense of urgency among retail stores to emphasize sales. While it also connotes it passion for its creative works such as YouTube, Pinterest, and Lego. 


However, it goes differently when it's placed in the Interiors of our home or office. How so? In the studies, red should be used in a minimal application as it affects the mood of the person using the space. It can amplify its current mood.


And still, it is a subjective topic and there are some people with larger-than-life personalities who would relentlessly go for the Red. Their Boldness would be seen in their homes which one may find overwhelming. 


Setting aside the holidays, Red color can be used in various ways in different forms. Here are some of the Red Color Scheme Combinations that would work well in your space.



Red and white go hand in hand


The colors red and white complement each other perfectly.

Red and white is the most popular color scheme for home decor. It's a timeless color scheme that looks good in any style of building. Alternate red and white colors on the walls. 

You can play with the two hues while selecting the furnishings and wall art for the space to keep things interesting.


Combine red and gold together


Gold is a regal and popular hue that goes well with red. To establish a modest balance with the bright red color of the walls, matte gold colors must be used. 

You can use golden walls to change up the décor style and bring out the red aspect with magnificent red and maroon furnishings to bring out the red element.


Add blue-green elements to a red room


Finally, if you really want to take a more aesthetic approach to red décor in your home, you can do so by including blue-green elements into the design. This is a great contrast palette that really brings out the red paint. Consider adding royal blue bedding and potted plants.


A red and white bathroom is a classic combination


Why then should your bathroom be left out of a stunning crimson makeover when you're renovating the rest of your home? The evergreen red-white color combination for the walls can be used to create an elegant and opulent washroom. To emphasize the hue, contrast the colors on the washbasin and cabinetry.


Go for an all-red bedroom

If red is your favourite hue and all you like but for your living space is a big dose of drama and glam, don't be afraid to go all out. Apply a substantial amount of red to the wall, chairs, and even the linens on the furniture. Use different hues of red, including cherry red, wine red, magenta, rose red, and burgundy, to add depth to the décor.

 

The Red and white tile backsplash is perfect for a red kitchen


If red is your favorite hue and all you like but for your living space is a big dose of drama and glam, don't be afraid to go all out. Apply a substantial amount of red to the wall, chairs, and even the linens on the furniture. Use different hues of red, including cherry red, wine red, magenta, rose red, and burgundy, to add depth to the décor.


Opt for a black and red kitchen


Combining red with black is among the most fashionable red color combinations. You can choose between a glossy or matte surface since both look great as part of the home decor. The red-black color scheme, in particular, is ideal for kitchens. It provides your kitchen a sleek, modern look and maybe nicely paired with the latest, gleaming gadgets.


Red color with light yellow for cozy corners at home


Use red and yellow to add sunlight and love to your home while picking the perfect color combination for your home. In your living area, combine cherry colors with pale yellow. To make a dramatic statement, use prints and designs vs a pale yellow background. Place geometric lights or a cozy chair with a red floral design in a reading corner.


Red color and green for an evergreen decor


The color green is really popular right now. Green is the best color for houses, especially during the pandemic, because it represents nature, calmness, and hope. The entryway, dining area, and living room, as well as any other interior space, can benefit from the use of red and green colors. 


The soothing green color contrasts beautifully with the blazing crimson. Green is a soothing color that comes in a variety of hues, from cold sage to bright and cheery green and citrus green. Apart from having live plants in your home, you may also use prints with leaves and palms, which are now popular. 


To balance the overall look with green and red colors, blend white or off-white. For an eclectic style, look beyond the walls and coordinate red and green fabrics with the décor and ensure that there is a seamless blend of styles.

Psychology of Colors in Interior Design

7/07/2022




Psychology of Colors in Interior Design 


To communicate feeling such as stimulation, passion, serenity, and uncertainty in space, color plays a vital role in creating a whole mood in a person. Color can amend the mood of a person in ways one doesn’t feel all of a sudden. Color can affect how you feel think or act in various situations. That is what we call color psychology in interior design. The primary brick to a space in the interior is color. However, colors surround us everywhere and form a connection between a brick block and a human mind. People feel comfortable around the colors that reflect their personalities. For example, for a passionate and bold person red or orange may be the color of happiness. However, a calm and shy person would not feel homely in red. Despite it, color may have a different influence from person to person, we can have a rainbow chart of color in general. 


Red


A daring primary color, the most dramatic hue of the color palette, and appealing color when it comes to tackling emotions. Actions and willpower are supplementary qualities to this hue and that’s why red can be used in offices and home offices to be more productive at work. 


Orange


People who love red but are not fond of its aggressive nature can go for orange in a pallet. You can safely play with this hue as it can be energetic and a pop-up shade if you want a traditional or pop art feel. You can also discover its shades in natural materials such as wood. 


Yellow


bright as a sun, a source of joy and luxury feel this color can be a cheerful addition to your room in every form such as furniture, wall, ceiling, or lighting. The gold shades of this hue can change the mood of the room into a bright and optimistic space. 


Blue


Clear as the sky, and soothing as water, this color may meditate you naturally with its fresh and tranquil nature. Light Blues can make your space feel enlarged and airy. Dark blues create a feeling of loyalty and formality. 


Purple


A royal color, having a restful quality it shows nobility in the psychology of colors. As it is a mixture of red and blue it has properties from both hues like energy and creativity. 


Green


as natural as leaves, this color symbolizes good luck, hope, and life. Ranging from emerald to olive this color can be paired with a neutral one in the home, offices, and business properties as a sensible choice. 


Neutral colors


Flexible colors can pair with both warm and cool hues to make a space more dramatic. In a psychological way white shows purity in space, grey enhances classiness, and black holds mystery.


In implementing the colors in each space, there is no right or wrong. What matters is that each space should reflect you, your desire and vision for the space and most importantly it should complement your way of life and your vision. After all, it's you who is who will live and stay in your home.
