Interior design is such a wonderful topic because no matter where you turn, someone has an opinion as to what is trending and what is not. One designer says that retro is ‘in’ while the next says that Early American is all the rage. Actually, the truth is something that you might never suspect and that is no matter what era you have your heart set on, you will be in vogue because it’s your home, your dream, your choice and that’s all there is to it. They say that a man’s home is his castle and so it is. If you have to live there then you need to be comfortable going home after a long day at work and what better way than to live in any era you so desire? You can become a time traveling interior designer in a few easy steps and really, that’s all you need to create the home of your dreams.
Stepping Back in Time
As anyone who’s ever studied for a master in arts in history online from a highly ranked university like Rutgers can tell you, it’s really easy to step back in time because everything you need is right there at your disposal on the Internet. Are you looking to design your home circa Victorian England? Perhaps you are looking for Louis IV décor or French Provincial or Americana. It really doesn’t matter what era you are seeking, you can become an interior designer simply by browsing online – the same place you go daily to work on that master of arts in liberal studies degree. You can step back to any period in time that you’d like and it’s all there in vivid color for you to see, imagine and dream about to your heart’s content.
Why Get Stuck in the Past?
Then there are those who are ultra-modern and want something stark and sleek with few soft contours and all geometric lines. That simply means being a forward-progressing time traveler and that is possible too. As a matter of fact, you could even consult with someone who has a 3D printer and get an even better visualization of how your home will look once you furnish it as you are thinking of doing. You don’t need to step back into the past, but with the best of them you can eagerly say, “Beam me up, Scottie,” and before you know it you will be digitally teleported to the future (which could be now!) to see what your home will look like in 22nd Century New York or 23rd Century Atlanta.
That is the amazing thing about the Internet and the age of information. Anything you want to learn is right there at your fingertips and you don’t even need to be an interior designer to create a living space you are comfortable in. It is, after all, your home. Just step into a time portal, check out the era and come back from cyberspace with your thinking cap on. It’s amazing what a bit of history combined with an overactive imagination can do.
