Outdoor Elements Indoors - NYIAD Design Snack

By NYIAD Staff on May 28th, 2014

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.
