A simple house can be made to look attractive by decorating its interior
tastefully. When our home looks beautiful, we feel happy and proud. According to Keats, ' A thing of beauty is
a joy forever'.
One's imagination, good taste and aesthetic sense are very much needed
to have a good interior. Interior decoration is a creative art of adjusting the
space and equipment to suit the fundamental and cultural needs of the dwellers.
Importance of good taste
Taste differs from person to person. The taste is reflected by the
things a person buys. A thing may or may not be appreciated by all individuals
equally. Certain arrangements attract the viewers for longer periods while some
arrangements attract for shorter periods. Whatever the care may be, taste of
the person who has created that particular piece of work is reflected through
his or her creation.
Art and good taste go
together like the jasmine and its
are general characteristics found in beautiful things that establish certain principles. Any piece of art that satisfies
the principles is always admired by all. One should have the knowledge of the
principles fundamental to good taste. Based on this, he can identify and
appreciate beauty. Now let us deal with the elements of art.
In formulating a design, two groups namely
the elements of art
and principles of design emerge. Design is
defined as any arrangement of lines, forms, colours and textures. It involves the
choosing these forms and colours and then arranging them.
A good design shows an orderly arrangement of
the materials and creates beauty in the finished product.
