Designing for the senses

Jessica Love

Decorating your home can be a challenge, but if you let your senses guide you, your humble abode can be transformed into your personal paradise. Here are some interior design tips from Lennar’s Central Texas and Austin model homes to help you find your unique style. Check out Lennar’s Dream Homes in TX Pinterest board for even more inspiration!

 

  1. Create a sense of harmony

    Design with pairs, such as lamps or side tables.  Smaller accessories can be placed to counterbalance and keep the room from becoming stagnant.

  2. Use contrasting textures to stimulate senses

    Try combining the use of hard and soft surfaces- mix granite with un-honed travertine, hand scraped hard wood floors with silk or wool rugs, or a plush, down sofa with a lacquered table.

  3. Place mirrors to improve or enhance light

    Strategically place a mirror opposite a window or chandelier to brighten a room, rather than adding more lamps.

  4. Select a color palette for the room’s desired mood

    Use soft, muted colors in a bedroom for relaxation, and brighter colors in a living room to boost conversation.

  5. Fill rooms with a pleasant scent

    Fragrance enhances the visual mood.  If a design is of a cool color palette, pair it with mint or lime scented candles- Or for a romantic retreat in a master bedroom use lavender or jasmine.
