Is it important to shape up your life???? It would be a big yes.So shaping up your home would also be equally important as it is said our home shapes us. And as we evolve, our homes should evolve too.The essence of interior design will always be about people and how they live. It is about the realities of what makes for an attractive, civilized, meaningful environment, not about fashion or what`s in or what`s out.Your room or your place of living should completely define you and also tells what you wanna achieve. Till now we have to know that how important interior designing is for quality of life.Have any of you have thought that how it would have evolved? We think that this is something new in our era but NO, this is completely wrong ; people have known about this since ages. Starting from the ANCIENT EGYPTIANS people at that time decorate their home with animal skin or textile. Royal families used to live in mud huts which was decorated with murals , sculptures or beautiful vases. Handmade pottery than came at the time of Neolithic Europe which was decorated with paint. At the time of greek people were privileged to have wooden furniture which had ivory and silver ornamentation and at the time of Romans the furniture were made of stone , wood or bronze.Domes were came at the time of Byzantine which were basically extravagant and beautifully decorated. During the dark ages there was demise of interior design which meant home interiors went down to basic wood panelling, minimal furniture and stone slab floors. In the Gothic age colour and ornamentations came into light once again.The renewal of art and beauty continued in French renaissance period which brought up marble flooring, painting and furniture.The Rococo style has come up with applauding for asian porcelain, flower design and furniture consisting of mother-of-pearl and tortoise shell.From the above trend we can see there is introduction of new things which serves as an addition to beauty of the house. With neutral colours, furniture in basic material such as wood and stainless steel and a minimal amount of ornaments the aim is for a clean and uncluttered feel. Bright colours are sometimes used to contrast against the all round neutral feel. Since ages people are well aware of architecture which helped them to make their place beautiful.So everyone out there just remember an empty room is a story waiting to happen, and you are the author. -RANAJAY CHOUDHURY
