Fundamentals of Interior Design

Christopher Chapman

Most people confuse the issue with interior design with interior decoration. While the former deals with building a whole living area from the ground up, the latter deals with the furniture and taperings of an existing living room.

Although horizontal lines add a safe and reliable feel to the space, vertical lines emotionally free and vast.
