Interior designers are a lot more than decorators; we're artists. Art is always present in our work, be it through our color/texture palettes or how we see the world altogether.

DESIGN TIPS MONDAY: Placing a rug in a bedroom looks simple enough, but did you know you could end up making massive mistakes with a simple decision? Looking at the diagram, when placing a rug make sure it covers the whole area, from the nightstands to the foot of the bed or a little further, to completely frame this space. If you think about it, when you have a smaller rug that barely covers the bed it could end up looking lost in space. For this reason and when purchasing rugs, make sure to measure the area entirely and not just the length of the bed.

#tbt I was looking through my old stuff and came across this design. This was actually the very first kitchen I designed back in freshman year in college. From what I remember, the kitchen furniture was made of wood and the island countertop was made by orange-toned silestone. Maybe in the near future I'll post an updated version of this design because, in four years, I've learned so much about kitchen design and I think this kitchen could benefit from it 😂😅 #freshmanyear

A (delayed) DESIGN TIPS MONDAY: Did you know there's more than one way to furnish your living room? It all depends on the amount of space available, the type of furniture that will be placed in the area and the design style that will be used for the overall look. Therefore, as designers, it's encouraged to experiment with more than one combination of elements to really bring out the best look for our client 👌🏻

In honor of Marie Antoinette's death anniversary, I present to you my Pocketshop proyect for a business/design class some time ago. The design of the shop reflects the theme of the product being sold: a makeup line based on the French royal court of Louis XV

Staying on the Visual Merchandising subject from this Monday's post, about a year ago during a Commercial Design class in college for an assignment we had to design a window display for a store of our choosing; we needed to select a store or a brand to use as a subject, decide on a theme for our display and items of clothing to show. For my design, I chose the brand Free People seeing as it encapsulated a simplistic and natural design. The theme of the window display is called "Summer Nights". The background is simple, using only a gradient effect of the colors we see during a sunset. As an ambiance device, on each side of the window, paper butterflies hang from the ceiling and fake Wisteria vines framing the whole display. The items of clothing, white blouses, and light wash jeans stand out against the dusk background and become the direct focal point in the display.

DESIGN TIPS MONDAY: When we go through our everyday lives, we're bound to come upon a retail store's window display. Usually, our eyes are drawn to some displays more than others, even though subconsciously we don't know why. This draw our eyes have towards some store displays is caused by the technique behind good Visual Merchandising. In this, we find that it's all based on a balance between the area and what the spectator experiences through those ten seconds of looking through a store window. In the first diagram, we have the vertical formation; here we can see how the window is divided into different parts and what percentage of the client's attention the display receives. On the left side, usually where the third party sees first, gets 25% of the attention so therefore it should have some of the products to be sold but not the "spotlight" product. In the middle, the display receives the most attention seeing as this is where the spectator usually stops any action and stares at the display for a few seconds subconsciously searching for something to draw him into the store. Because of this, it's in this area where the designer should place the "spotlight" item or the items that should receive the most attention. Towards the right, usually where the store is located, the display receives less attention and, because of this, the items placed in this area shouldn't be important items seeing as it will be overlooked and have major competition with its neighbors.
