Never underestimate the importance of capturing the right scents in an interior space ..
Although often underused our sense of smell (one of our five keys senses) should also be a consideration in the design process. We all have our favourite smells which is why they are so individual and will have different impacts but if got right can give a much greater sense of wellbeing.
Take for a carefully considered view from a window could also include the aroma from a nearby flower or plants, for example fragrant roses or delicate jasmine which comes into its own on a hot summers evening. These smells can often transport you back to a fond memory of maybe holidays or childhood. The sense of freshly mown grass can also elicit memories of long hot summer days.
The interior space can have designated areas where favourite smells will be used for example baking bread in the kitchen or a chicken roasting in the oven. Also natural materials used can have the right or the wrong smell from floors to a leather chair.
Get the aroma's right in your space and you will find your mood boosted as soon as you walk into your home.
Make a tablescape with fresh green foliage from the garden and some room scents to add a summery feeling to a space..
Always good to see what you have already lying around the house and garden. Try and keep to a monotone colour palette so it doesn't fight with your interior decor.
My aim here is to capture moments or thoughts around design. I am constantly inspired by the London design exhibitions, photography and design publications. In fact I get my inspiration from so many places.. By sharing these experiences and thoughts with you I hope to both educate and inform.
