9 Design Quotes to Inspire Your Next Kitchen Renovation Project

According to historical painters, tech gurus, and interior designers alike, the concept of design is highly multifaceted. There is certainly more to it than what meets the eye. If you’re considering a home makeover of your own, let these inspiring words echo in your mind:

1“Design is not just what it looks and feels like. Design is how it works.” – Steve Jobs
These wise words are especially apt when it comes to home design. While of course it’s important that your design looks attractive, it is arguably more important for it to work. It is essential that these factors work in conjunction with one another in order to create something truly special.

2“Simplicity is the ultimate form of sophistication.” – Leonardo Da Vinci
As the saying goes, “less is more”. As opposed to cluttering your space with needless accessories, let the original design speak for itself. If we narrow our focus on what is important, we will have greater impact.

3“The details are not details. They make the design.” – Charles Eames
Considered highly singular, and often overlooked, details are much more important than you might think. Together they are the makeup of your design and by letting one go unattended, you may affect the overall composition.

4“The key to setting something ordinary apart is in the details.” – Carolyn Roehm
Again, the emphasis here is on details. There might be an overall look and feel you want to achieve with your design, but it is in the details that you can truly make your space stand out. Those additional quirks and personal touches make the space ‘yours’.

5“Design is about making people happy, either functionally, aesthetically or emotionally.” – Robin Siegerman
Design has the power to affect a number of senses. It is not a one-dimensional concept attributable to nothing more than basic structure, but has the ability to appeal to our innermost thoughts and emotions.

6“Design means being good, not just looking good.” – Clement Mok
Many of us often associate design with the visual, and while this is certainly correct, there is much more to the concept. For a design to work on every level, it must not only “look good” but must function at its core.

7“Life should be glamorous, chic, and colourful – and so should your home.” – Jonathan Adler
A little more light-hearted, this Jonathan Adler quotation strikes an important balance between real life and design. Aspects that are important to us in our own personal lives should transcend to our home design.

8“Decorating is like music. Harmony is what we constantly strive for.” – Charlotte Moss
The idea that something suits or “goes with” another. As in music, it is important that there is fluidity within our decor. We strive for correspondence between individual features in order to create an overall masterpiece.

9“Be faithful to your own taste because nothing you like is ever really out of style.” – Billy Baldwin
In true style, we have saved the best for last. When it comes to your own design, the most important factor is that it is to your taste. Trends come and go but you have to spend everyday with your home. It is, therefore, essential that you have an affinity with your design.
