Balance, proximity, alignment, repetition, contrast and space are fundamental principles of design. According to j6design, “These elements and principles of design are the building blocks. The elements of design are the things that make up a design. The Principles of design are what we do to those elements. How we apply the principles of design determines how successful the design is.” We take these fundamental principles and apply this to the interior design of each home or room. If you aren’t knowledgeable on what the juxtaposition of opposing elements to highlight pieces in your room means, don’t worry. That’s why you hire a professional. Positive and negative don’t just apply to physics. J6design says the “space in art refers to the distance or area between, around, above, below, or within elements.” Using good repetition, alignment with in the proximity brings balance. And as we said in a previous article, balance brings a sense of peace and cohesiveness to any home.
