Design Snack – Don’t Be Perfect

By NYIAD Mentor on May 13, 2015

Welcome to another NYIAD Design Snack! In this week’s video, we learn that perfection is not the goal in design.

If every piece in a room is perfect, the room becomes a museum, and lifeless. Perfection is cold and inhuman.

So what does that mean for interior designers? Simply that you need to use light, unexpected combinations of colors and fabrics, textures, and angles to add a shock of life to each and every room. Make it personal, not perfect.
