‘Design is so simple. That’s why it’s so complicated’ – Paul Rand

When designing and decorating a space, you have to give a feeling of effortlessness to the people in the room. No one should perceive the time and work you put in styling the space.
This simplicity is the result every designer aims to achieve.

‘The best rooms have something to say about the people who live in them’ – David Hicks

Designing a home is not all about the interior decor trends and is especially not about what you, as an interior decorator, personally like.
Designing a home is 100% about the people who live in it. You want to make them feel at home, beautifully. You need to listen to them, to what’s essential for them, to their story to achieve a perfect design for them.

‘Style is a way to say who we are without having to speak’ – Rachel Zoe

Did you ever enter a home and immediately felt the vibe of the people who lived in it? Sometimes it’s beautiful, sometimes… well, not so much! That’s what home style means: adding your personality to your interior.
But anyway, adding your personal touch to your home is what will make it stand among the crowd!

'Be faithful to your own taste, because nothing you really like is ever out of style'

‘Be faithful to your own taste, because nothing you really like is ever out of style’ – Billy Baldwin

Your home should reflect your taste and your personality. Don’t buy something because you heard it was trendy! Nothing worst than purchasing accessories that you don’t particularly like and being stuck with them. What you like can evolve, of course. But it will never be out of style. But buttercup yellow paint in your kitchen will definitely!

'The essence of interior design will always be about people and how they live'

‘The essence of interior design will always be about people and how they live’ – Albert Hadley

If you think interior design is only about creating lovely homes, you’re wrong! You can never forget the people living in the home. Never, ever!
If you do that, your designs may look beautiful and may even be selected to appear on magazines covers, but the house’s occupants will never really feel at home. And who wants that?
Your number one concern is these people, and only after, the decor.

'A designer has a duty to create timeless design'

‘A designer has a duty to create timeless design’ – Phillip Starck

Imagine creating gorgeous home decor that you’ll have to change totally 2 years from now?
A beautiful design is timeless and resists fashion changes. Of course, you can always change accessories. But when it comes to the basis of your design, think above the trends, think timeless.

'There are three responses to a piece of design: yes, no and WOW! Wow is the one to aim for.'

Creating a WOW feeling for your client may be the best reward on Earth. Interior design is a luxury service, and you want to give this luxury experience to your clients.
Create stunning decorations for them, and enjoy a little WOW effect!

'A room is not a room without natural light'
Louis Kahn
Top interior design quotes to use on Instagram

‘A room is not a room without natural light’ – Louis Kahn

This might be a little controversial, especially in New York City where so many living rooms don’t have windows!
Of course, you can use a room without natural light. But really enjoying its design? I’m not so sure.
It can be convenient, but if you really want to create a beautiful room design, you definitely need natural light!
Take advantage of it as much as you can, natural light in a home is a true blessing!

'The details are not the details. They make the design'
Charles Eames

‘The details are not the details. They make the design’ – Charles Eames

It may be my favorite interior decoration quote on the list. The details are everything. Take a home where you have all the basic furniture. Nothing is missing, nothing is wrong. But… Without accessories, a home will feel so sad and gloomy.
To this basic installation, add plants, art, a tray on the coffee table, a rug, pillows on the sofa, candles, books, a nice chandelier, etc.
Wow, the home will immediately feel welcoming and full of life!
Without these little details, you can’t enjoy your design.

'Have nothing in your houses that you do not know to be useful or believe to be beautiful'
William Morris
Top interior design quotes to use on Instagram

‘Have nothing in your houses that you do not know to be useful of believe to be beautiful’ – William Morris

Don’t purchase stuff to purchase stuff. A cluttered home will never feel beautiful and timeless. Only keep what is essential for you: what is useful, and what is beautiful.
And it can be different from everyone else. That’s not a problem, on the contrary!
But like Marie Kondo likes to say, when decluttering your house, ask yourself: does this bring me joy?
If the answer is yes, don’t hesitate!

I hope you loved these interior design quotations; I personally feel super inspired right now!
