4 Principles: Interior Design in Kolkata

1. Equilibrium

Equilibrium or balance refers to the creation of a visual synchronization in the space that is being worked on, by making sure that the elements constituting the space are distributed evenly. Balance lends your space a sense of symmetry; it can be derived in several forms: for example, with shapes, patterns, colours and textures.

There are three common ways to establish a balance while doing up an interior space. First, there is symmetrical balance, which involves placing objects symmetrically on the two sides of an imaginary central axis. Next, we have asymmetrical balance, which while aligning the visual focus with an imaginary central axis, allows the placement of dissimilar or oddly numbered items. Asymmetrical balance usually imparts a more vigorous and natural vibe. Finally, there is radial balance, which comprises arranging objects in a circle around a central focal point, such as a round dining table or a chandelier.

2. Accord

Accord or the Principle of Unity refers to the desired uniformity or harmony among the elements used in a design. Factors that can contribute to achieving accord or harmony include the use of similar colours, patterns or textures, precise and equal spacing of objects and design elements, and the repetition of these elements to create an optical continuation. Simply put, when objects are vigilantly curated, the viewer gets a sense that the entire design comes together seamlessly. For instance, if your space uses disparate items in a variety of shapes and textures that tug viewers in different directions, unity can still be achieved by, say, the use of a single colour scheme over the large area.

3. Rhythm

Creating a sense of repetition and contrast in an interior leads viewers in a trip of sustained visual interest. There are various ways to instil rhythm, such as using the same pattern or colour in distinct intervals. This is called a repetition rhythm. Rhythms can also be introduced by alternating the use of certain design elements in a manner that can be recognised by the viewer.

4. Accent

This principle, also referred to as Emphasis, posits that every living space should have a central element as a focal point, and all the other peripheral items should complement or cast focus on that central object, which could be a piece of furniture like a piano or a painting or even an accent wall.
