Yesterday, the NY Post wrote an article titled: “Inside job: Glimpses at trend-setters’ interior design techniques” which discussed Karen Lehrman Bloch’s new coffee-table book titled: “The Inspired Home: Interiors of Deep Beauty” which comes out next Tuesday, September 17.
Bloch didn’t set-out to write a book, but rather she “stumbled” upon it. She looked at different scientific research on what universal principles in architecture and interior design helped us feel good, and attract us to beautiful spaces. She found interiors across the globe that embraced what she refers to the “golden ratio.” (Definition: A complex equation involving proportion and arrangement that make something attractive).
The book features 25 interiors, some from high-profile interior designers and artists, one being Donna Karan (who also wrote the forward to the book). Her home is featured in the “Balance” chapter, and the design was done as a team effort with her architectural firm to feature open, uncluttered spaces with simple furnishings.
How is this related to what we do? We help you achieve this balance in your home. We want you to feel good in your space. We work with you, and your interior designer to ensure the interior of your home is not over designed, but exactly right for your lifestyle. You should love your space, when you walk in it should immediately relax you, and provide you with the space you need to just breathe.
