Behind the DKOR with Margaret: What it is about Interior Design that I Love
What I love about the design and art world is that there is always room for one’s self interpretation. For me, this is when I truly start to connect, because we are given that moment to tell our side of the story.
This idea/philosophy happens here are DKOR when we first begin our concept interior design process. As we get together, we are excited with ideas flowing out of our heads, that often, pleasant misunderstands happen. Let me explain.
As we sit together at a table and start sketching or searching for ideas on Pinterest, our mind begins to run really fast with ideas as we are always so excited for this stage. Usually our words cannot keep up with the elaborate ideas that we envision in our heads. As we each sketch and start to discuss our ideas, it may at first come out as a jumbled mess. So you can only imagine how each of us start to interpret each others designs. Sometimes we are understanding each other but other times, most of the time, we are not. And this may sound like a bad thing, but believe me, it is not. This is when all the interior design magic starts to take action. We each look at each others sketches and may quickly think ‘I like it, What is it?’ but quickly interpret it in our own way.
At this point an idea started and has developed into something amazing and extravagant with each of our interpretations.
This is the reason why it is so vital to collaborate in interior design, to put our heads together, and create something that not just my brain can think of but also all the other designers and team members on the project. Each of us stretch the design to its furthest extent without really knowing it. That pleasant misinterpretation and misunderstanding between each other is how we end up taking one great thing and making it spectacular.
For me, this is what excites me about design because it is so unexpected and an amazing creation can pleasantly catch us off guard as it is created in a “organized mess.”
