In the words of the author, this book aims "to look at the elements of interior design in a way that might aid interior designers in the formulation of individual philosophies for their own work." Here, then, for practicing designers, students and interested laypersons are the fundamentals of design explored, explained and interpreted in a knowledgeable and original way. A Philosophy of Interior Design includes chapters on concepts; the duty of the interior designers; the role rooms, windows and doors play in determining the character of interior spaces; changing levels--cellars, attics, stairs, ramps, balconies and towers; the language of furniture; color and light; sound and smells; ornament and details and much more.
