Creating an inviting and captivating interior space is a skill that can be tricky to master. A well-designed interior not only enhances the aesthetics of a space but also impacts our well-being and comfort. Building your interior with architectural inspired homeware designs invites structure and form to your home, whilst also welcoming fluidity and character. Let's delve into the world of architectural interior design and discover how you can transform your home into a work of art…

What is architectural interior design?

Architectural interior design is the art of crafting immersive and functional spaces that seamlessly merge the home’s architectural elements, such as walls, doorways, and floors, with interior aesthetics. It involves a seamless blend of creativity, spatial awareness, and technical expertise to transform bare spaces into captivating environments that optimises lighting whilst incorporating nature’s forms.

Organic Shapes and Materials

Nature-inspired elements have a profound impact on the ambiance of a space. Introducing natural form into a space that is predominantly structured will often soften the space with a comforting atmosphere. Embrace organic shapes and materials to create a connection with the outdoors and bring a touch of the natural world inside. Infuse your home with sustainable wooden hues to create a sense of friendliness and earthiness. A sculptural wooden centrepiece that mirrors the flowing forms of nature will break up any space you feel has too many geometric lines, whilst providing you a bold focal point.

A sense of flow

Architectural design allows for a harmonious transition between indoor and outdoor spaces. Creating a seamless flow from your interior to your surrounding environment enhances the overall experience of your home. Utilise windows that open onto a patio or garden to blur the boundaries between inside and outside. To replicate this feeling without large windows, or garden space, install a lush variety of hanging planters to create a living wall. A beautiful mixture of tall leafy greens, bright florals and trailing wonders allows you to curate a diverse indoor garden that connects you to nature.

If you have large windows, but are in need of extra privacy, introduce a living wall of Morvah Hanging Planters so you can still enjoy a beautiful, natural view. 

TR recommends... A mixture of floor planters, table top plant pots, wall and ceiling hanging planters are an effective way to add interest to your space, as the pops of greenery will draw your eyes throughout your home. Our Green Range offers a vast array of planters, allowing you to curate a harmonious collection whilst nature's variety will enhance every inch of your interior with texture and character.

Focus on sustainability and handcrafted pieces

Architectural designs champion sustainability and considered craftsmanship. Invest in quality, handcrafted furniture and décor that not only elevates aesthetic but also showcases the beauty of traditional techniques. Handcrafted Tom Raffield homeware pieces will add unparalleled charm to your space, with each design being truly unique down to the rainbow of wooden hues and grain.

Make a Statement with Lighting

Lighting plays a pivotal role in architectural design, emphasising focal points and enhancing the overall atmosphere. Use a combination of ambient, task, and accent lighting to add depth and dimension to your interior. Lighting designs that showcase confident silhouettes will add to your layers of architectural form to your space during the day, whilst providing the perfect display of light and shadow in the evening.
