Light Up…The Room!!!

INTERIOR DESIGN BY: SUSAN LACHANCE INTERIOR DESIGN

These interiors bring the outdoors inside with floor to ceiling windows. One look at these amazing interiors and you can see how the best of the outside is used as art on the inside.  By using floor to ceiling windows it gives the room or space a grander feel as well as allows natural sun light to come in which improves by giving the illusion of a larger scaled space.

Horizontal and vertical lines depict the masculine line of this elegant dining room. The ice-cold floors and accent pieces are joined with the natural warmth of the beauty of the trees both inside and out. By combining these diverse elements, one can create incredible force and allow the viewer to imagine the room as they want to see it.  The natural beauty of the outside, combined with man created beauty of the inside, frame a perfect picture and present a victory for the designer and an incredible dining room for the home owner. It is the classic example of designing for the view and natural elements.

This room is illuminated by the elongated windows and enhanced by the white walls and floors.  The natural light makes this white boxed room shine with a pure and natural reflection.

Please note how the designer has elected to highlight the draperies rather than try to have them drop and disappear. By bringing you to the power of the window treatments, the occupant and or viewer has no choice but to be enthralled by the natural beauty of the outside elements. The room smells of both warmth and excitement, as the outside hypnotize us to the tranquility, but at night the excitement of the enclosure can show off the boldness of the design. A great example of how you can design for day and night.

The drapery used gives geometric shape to the décor.  By using the circles or dots on the window treatments it becomes a visual delight.  Another usage of these blinds was to give an optical illusion of the height and pronounced tones of highlighted design.

True design is the ability to orient the room so that the line of sight of the inhabitants is always directed as the designer has viewed the room in their creative stage.  Here you have a square box of a room that is clearly directed to the natural beauty of the outside. Notice the careful placement of the sculpture and light fixture to quickly grab you attention and slowly lead you to the peaceful setting outside. The perfect room, for the owners or guests to relax in, and enjoy Florida’s beauty.

The sky blue carpet brings the blue skies inside and the floors the color of clouds.  It is as if you are walking on air and dreaming on clouds.  Ambient light is accomplished by using the clear glass panes with no film or tint to reflect interior light at a more powerful level.  By hanging the whimsical drapes above the window sills adds length and illusion of the size of the windows, adding strength to the room.

Overall the usage of floor to ceiling windows makes any room seem larger and more spacious.  The perspective to the eye creates the feeling and physical reaction of enhanced space.  These windows really are like a well-tailored article of clothing, they fit just right as well as enhance whatever space they occupy.
