Interior / Landscaping Designs
Many Clients make the mistake of confusing interior design with interior decoration, but these two disciplines are worlds apart. While it is true that design did naturally evolve from decoration, the technical know-how and skill set required for a designer are far more complex and complicated when compared to simple decoration. For instance, a designer must not only have an impeccable sense of style like a decorator, but he must also have an intimate understanding of architecture as well. Interior design and landscaping are a major part of the overall package of how a house looks and feels."landscaping" a property, you must be making home improvements on that property's grounds -- either in a practical or in an aesthetic way. In an extended sense, everything on your property that stands outside of the home itself is part of a property's landscaping. Simply put, if you can see an object in your yard, then it is affecting the overall aesthetics of the grounds of a property -- i.e., its landscaping. A house and its landscaping should be harmonious with each other. Achieving such harmony is sometimes possible intuitively; but if you're more serious about complementing your house with your landscaping, you really need to take matters to the next level -- landscape design. Landscape design is an art.
