It seems that as I encounter people and tell them what I do for a living I am starting to get the same response and suggestion from people. It goes something like this:
“I’m an interior designer and I own my own firm. We do commercial & residential interior design.”
“Oh, wow that sounds fun! You know what neighborhood you should really get into…those people have large incomes and a lot of money, you would do well over there.”
Take a look around wherever it is you are right now.
How many different textures can you count?
The flooring, the walls, the upholstery (or lack thereof) are probably among your first considerations. But don’t neglect to take a look at that ceiling that never gets enough love…the shades on your light fixtures, the accessories and artwork in the room. All of these things add physical texture to your space.
I hope you all have had the opportunity to enjoy the Hunger Games movies. With Mockingjay Part 1 having come out recently, I wanted to talk a little bit about all of the architecture that is being portrayed in these films. After all, I am one that goes to the movies and pays more attention to set design and art direction than I do anything else. Although, I have to admit I have seen Part 1 twice; the first time I watched it for entertainment value and the second time I was just engrossed in the backdrop that is the somewhat depressing dystopian setting of ‘District 13.’ The style of architecture that is seen in this film is also quite similar to the setting of Divergent and soon to come, Insurgent.
