In this week’s NYIAD design snack, we point to the value of being aware of what the outdoors brings in when you’re designing a room.
To reiterate, when designing a space, always remember to consider your surroundings and examine what’s coming from the outside before you work on the inside.
Be sure to study the space first. Perhaps there is a green tint coming in from a large tree in the yard.
Then, determine whether the light is harsh or soft.
Finally, make adjustments to your design based on what you observe.
By adopting this outside-in approach, you’ll be better equipped to handle the unique design challenges you’ll face.
