Study Of "interior Design" As A Reflection Of The Mind.
By Shrinivas Vaidya, Fri Dec 9th

Dear friends, we as humans are a composite of mind, body andspirit. All these three in proper coordination, create the worldaround us. The things, which we want in life, are first createdin our mind, then our mind sends signals to our brain and thebrain sends signals to various parts of our body to take actionand thus "reality" gets created.

This means that whatever we imagine in our minds gets convertedin reality. The program of our mind decides what we imagine. Imean if I want to decorate my bedroom, everything from the typeof furniture I choose to the budget decision will depend upon my"broader attitude" towards life.

If I am a "budget conscious" person, then this will affect rightfrom the initial stages of the design. I will look at the designfrom a conservative point of view. Thus everything, which getscreated in reality will have an influence of my personality.

Here I am not trying to say that only high budget designs aregood. I have seen works of many interior designers, who havespent their entire lives on studying low cost projectsand also have won awards for their magnificent work.

That's why any interior project can not be fulfilledwithout active participation of the client or the user.Creativity doesn't have any boundaries of budget. Any piece ofart which fulfils the functional need and also the aestheticalneed can be easily accepted as an architectural element. Budgetis not a constraint at all. On the other hand the budgetconstraint sometimes is useful to generate some good ideas for aparticular problem.

An interior designer is not an artist, because an artistbasically performs his


acts to satisfy his own desire. Thiscould be any performing art or other forms of arts. His piece ofwork may not have any functional use from user's point of view.

An interior designer is not even a technician or engineer.Because when an engineer builds a he need not worry ofmaking it "beautiful". His primary aim is to make it functional.He puts his entire energy in making the functional.

That's why an interior designer is one who satisfies both thefunctional as well as aesthetical part of the design. Sometimesit is easy to accomplish the functional part of an interiordesign, but since the definition of beauty is different foreveryone, it is extremely difficult to satisfy each and everyuser's aesthetic hunger.

This is particularly true about interiors in public spaces. Forexample a bank building has a definite use and function for allthe users. We can safely create a list of functions a personwould perform when he visits a bank. But this does not mean thebank reflects his personality, like the first paragraph of thisarticle mentions.

That's why interiors in public spaces always are designed bytaking into consideration something called as "masspersonality". This is a general attitude of the kind of mindseteveryone would have or is likely to have when he/she visits thatspace. If you visit large corporate software office premise, youwill see this picture.

Office interiors always have a certain kind of order in them.The use of colors, styles have a kind of commitment inthem, which is expected from you when you work there.

On the other hand a bar or a restaurant has some sort of moodgenerating atmosphere, which sets you loose. Because this iswhat is expected in a public space like a restaurant.

Thus any interior space is always associated with people. Aspace which serves its functions best and makes the userscomfortable is bound to succeed as a favorite place.

I hope this article was informative to everyone.
