ItÂ’s all about space! Perhaps selecting matching furniture or choosing the texture of your walls are the last issues on your priority list, but interior designers, these days, are laying more emphasis on these details because they believe that interiors of a house have a therapeutic impact on a persons mind, body and mood. Elements like Â‘FireÂ’, Â‘AirÂ’ and Â‘WaterÂ’ have a huge impact.
It’s all about space! Perhaps selecting matching furniture or choosing the texture of your walls are the last issues on your priority list, but interior designers, these days, are laying more emphasis on these details because they believe that interiors of a house have a therapeutic impact on a persons mind, body and mood. Elements like ‘Fire’, ‘Air’ and ‘Water’ have a huge impact. When you see water you feel calm and composed and so, a fountain in front of your house or a small water body inside, makes you feel peaceful. Same with ‘Fire’. Destructive fire is smoking, which kills the spirit of a place, whereas a small lamp or a candle lamp always fills you with positivity when you start your days’ work. Colors, proper flow of air, etc. all have therapeutic effects on the person living inside.
Many times, requirement becomes a priority and aesthetics take a backseat. But, interior designers feel that to create a therapeutic environment, aesthetics play a very important role.
Lately, people have started realizing the importance of their homes in their health and happiness. One can relate therapeutic interiors to ‘vastu’; but, trust me, even though I don’t challenge the ‘vastu shastra’s' effect, I think living is more about happiness than science or logic. For example, a engineer used to collect mementos as small as half an inch, from places he would travel. He would be unhappy even if someone removed a single piece. For an interior designer or decorator, when he decorates the interiors of house with a combination of his clients’ sentiments plus his experience, he comes up with a result which makes his client happy, and this is therapeutic.
Darker shades reduce the space whereas lighter ones bounce light and enlighten the mood of a place. But, according to some interior designers, sometimes there is more to interiors than just light.
There are homes which are very modern, yet people living inside want to keep their ancestors’ furniture. If a designer tells his client that a certain antique piece doesn’t suit the mood of the home, he will tend to upset the client. Interiors should make one feel happy after a tired day at work. One can’t force someone to like something. There’s a logic behind why builders are including therapeutic gardens in their projects. These are designed for mental and physical relaxation.
It’s all to do with the mind. Smell, light, touch, every element of the house has a therapeutic effect. For instance, if one chooses a water bed, he’ll never suffer from back ache. But, his interior designer needs to know his stuff. It’s not all about the ‘vaastu shastra’, there’s a lot more to it.
Color therapy has been there for some time. But, recently, where interiors are concerned, the importance has increased immensely. Your home should not look like a showroom. Many a time, there are things which appeal to you in a showroom, but the moment it gets home, you feel it’s just not going with their personality. Textures and prints have therapeutic effect on you because, if it’s too congested or complicated and something that doesn’t look good throughout the day, you’ll get depressed. Your home should not be cluttered. If you have a sporty attitude, go for that kind of furniture, if you like Victorian, go for something on the same line. Let your home reflect you and see the effect on your mood.
It’s been proved that your health and mood could actually depend on your interiors. Many people are accepting this fact…Are you ready for this THERAPY??
