Every space will reveal itself to you , if you just allow it to happen. On an intuitive level , listen to where you want to reside in the space, pay attention to how you feel in the space – let your emotions begin to outline the structure of the furniture placement.
On a rational level, measure and draft the existing shell, place furniture in logical and functional ways. Then take a deep breath, combine the two approaches together to make a magical rational space. Move through the space, be still in the space, gaze upon the space, gaze from within the space. Each of these steps combined with careful attention to your experience will help you create something unique and wonderful.
Design really does inform our lives, it helps shape our futures and it certainly soothes the soul.
