Here and now, I am challenging you to think about and become aware of compositions in your interior design environment, and from a completely different angle and point of view. I’ll be comparing interior design focal points with focal views that I promote in a way like you have never heard before!
In the realm of interior design, you always hear a lot about focal points. You need your room or rooms to be engaging from all directions. You have to consider that you’re going to be looking at the room from various points and from various angles, so give yourself something enjoyable to look at and experience. Let’s make your environment engaging, no matter which way you turn! Therefore, it it vital to implement Focal Views vs. Focal Points in Your Interior.
If you base your room around the concept of focal points, at certain times it may or will be the focal point, and at other times it won’t be the focal point. It may lose its’ balance and equilibrium at different times and under different circumstances.
I think the concept of focal views is much more realistic. Because that’s the way we actually see. We don’t look and see points, per say. We look and see views. You don’t look outside your hotel window and say, “What a wonderful point.” You say, “What a wonderful view.” When you go to a restaurant, you don’t request that you get the best point, but the table with the best view. Now, it might be the best point in the restaurant, but that best point is the one that has the best view. Now you can see how important it is to put the emphasis on Focal Views vs. Focal Points in Your Interior Design.
When you enter a room, you see a focal composition or you view a composition, and that composition changes as you move about the room … and turn … and look in different directions. Therefore, the focal point within the focal view changes every time you turn around, just as if you’re looking through a viewfinder in a camera or camcorder. There’s no doubt that every composition has a focal point within the composition, whether it be a painting, a photograph, or a room. But we don’t want to fixate on that exclusively, especially in a room where we walk into a 3-D surround environment. We want our eye to move … we don’t want things to be static. We want movement, very much like music. We want things not only to flow, but we also want things to be rhythmic and dynamic with points of emphasis and relaxation, or rest. So the eye can be in motion, but also alight and rest on something of interest that can be contemplated. The idea of focal views is to allow your eye to “take it all in” while at the same time allowing your eye to dwell on things of interest. Focal Views vs. Focal Points in Your Interior Design and Interior Decorating allow you to accomplish this.
In this way, you are able to experience your environment in a much more full-bodied way. I think you’ll enjoy this new point of view and be delighted with a newfound sensibility to your surroundings and environments wherever you reside, and wherever you go.
Focal Views vs. Focal Points in Your Interior Design … Focal Views is the best way to go.
