Do you know what’s the most appreciated quality of a good interior design? That it makes the eye move around the space. If you enter a room and only notice one single spot, then your space hasn’t been designed that well. So what can you do to make your homes so holistic that the eye cannot help but rove around? It’s
1. Layered curtains
Layered curtains with innovative pleats are one of the simplest yet most impactful ways to keep the eye moving in your interior design. First of all, the layers – both sheer and opaque curtains – draw the eye while the pleats keep them moving. They also help create a beautiful backdrop for the space. They’re a frame of sorts that enhance the visuals of a space two-fold.
2. Interesting wall patterns
If you feel like your space is too bland or boring, then you can introduce eye-catching patterns on your walls. Don’t know what kind might work? Well, the black silhouette of steps featured in this image is a great example. It not only makes the eye move from one wall to another, but is also an excellent way to make an otherwise sharp corner feel like an inherent part of the space!
3. Unique tile patterns
You can find a lot of uniquely patterned tiles in the market these days. But the trick to keep the eye moving in your space is to find one that features beautiful continuity. An excellent example of such a tile selection is the backsplash featured in this image. Its zig-zagging design keeps the eye flowing throughout the simple layout of the kitchen!
4. Wall geometry
Remember: when all else fails, you can simply depend of geometry! What kind of geometry? Well, that totally depends on the size of the room and how you want the eye to move around it. For example, the oblique lines featured in this image are a great way to emulate a sense of movement within the space. It also keeps the wall from looking completely stagnant!
5. Subway tiles
Maybe it’s because they resemble bricks, or maybe it’s because there’s just something very attractive about them, but subway tiles are a great way to emulate movement in your spaces. However, they look best in either kitchens or bathrooms! They won’t look as good in the other public and semi-public parts of the house.
