Hobbies and passions in interior design
[:en]Regardless of the generic effect that chosen elements can impact in the making of an interior design project, still remains the need to personally put a mark on them through more than the selected color pallete and textures. These can and they are critical elements, nothing to say about that, but even the most harmonious and balanced decor will be comfortable enough to be lived in after it is given a personal touch. By living in a space, personalization comes naturally, we connect with the elements of that particular space and we fill them with meaning that comes out straight from our interaction with them. There is another option, tough, to accelerate this process by aiming towards a built up personalization. Besides, rarely happens that every single element in a decor to be brand new for those who’s project belongs to. Decorationg and re-decorating means creative usage of the existent elements, at least few of them. Therefore, if we can create a new esemble, attractive under the imperative of preserving some of the old decor items, we can, with no doubt, integrate in the space already existing elements that we consider crucial for our comfort, even if these would not be, by far, the first choices of an interior designer.
Speaking of hobbies as materialization of what is absolutely necessary for us to feel comfortable, the ideal solution would be to reserve a space exclusively for their implementation. That might mean for some a gym, the equipment needed to keep their training sessions. For others a painting workshop that has enough light. Or, perhaps, for those who dream of an anechoic chamber where they can practice the passion to beat the drums or those who need a padded room with lockers in which to keep everything necessary to implement their designs hand made. Examples may continue.
It happens to adults also to get attached to old objects, which, taken out form their historical context, might not value too much or anything at all. Maybe we are talking here about a collection of objects collected from your travels, small mock-ups of cameras collected since young childhood, or tickets to the visited museums collected throughout the time. No matter the situation and also how big the collection might be, what it is important to remember is that, in no way, we have to give up on them when redecorating. Not only these two elements can coexist, but they can even be combined in an harmonious way so that a small part of your passion, which helped you create such a collection, can be used in the interior you live in.
In conclusion, whatever the elements and activities are that make us feel better, it is recommended to exploit their potential to create a positive tone in as many circumstances as possible, and interior design should not constitute any exception to it.
