Hello World! Welcome Friends! Walk into anyone’s home, and you’ll find that their interiors are designed quite differently from yours. Sure, each home will have a couch, coffee table, lamp, bed and dining room table, but even the looks of these functional pieces differ. Some homeowners prefer having leather furniture to fabric, while others prefer sleeping on feather down beds to memory foam.
Tastes and likes differ from person to person. Though house dwellers may share the staples, the don’t share the aesthetic. Be honest: have you ever walked into someone’s home and wondered why they chose to decorate the space the way they did? Your answer is telling. If yes, then you have, subconsciously or no, made design an important part of your space.
Here’s another question you might ask yourself: What is my decorating aesthetic?
To answer this is easy. You can take a quiz, or, on a more personal level, choose one functional object in your space and determine its aesthetic appeal. Let’s make this selection easy—we’ll use the fan as our objet du jour.
The fan that you pull out of your stuffed closet after the winter months turn to summer, the table fan is a purely functional item in the home. Hidden away out of sight for a majority of the year, the table fan can be built of plastic or metal components and must generally be turned on and off by switch at the back of the fan; no fancy remote for this one. Wonderful for areas that do not have the space needed to hold ceiling fans, the table fan cools you down when you need it too, and it’s transportable!
Ownership of this type of fan means you’re not about following design trends or buying overly expensive décor. You like to keep things simple. Your design aesthetic: minimalism.
A pedestal fan is not so easily tucked away as the table fan, but like the table fan, it is transportable and available in a variety of finishes. Commonly referred to as a standing fan, pedestal fans have a base that rests on the floor, oscillate and typically offer an adjustable height lever.
For the person who doesn’t mind having their fan set up in the living room, kitchen, bathroom or bedroom, the pedestal fan is as functional as it is aesthetically pleasing. Because this fan type is available in a variety of styles, users can opt for a sleek chrome finish or wooden walnut base. You’re an individual who’s not afraid to explore their options and likes to try new things. Your design aesthetic: eclecticism.
For some unknown reason, you run hot at night. It can have been a mild day outside but you’re sweating through your pajamas. Is it you, or is it the temperature of the bedroom?
A tower fan, controlled by remote control and available in multiple finishes is a fixture that both complements the space and cools it down. Not distracting from the aesthetic of the space, the tower fan stands like a totem of the old design adage, demonstrating how “form follows function.” Being someone who values functionalism and aesthetics, your design style: Modern.
To save on energy and to sit comfortably in style, you’ve opted to go with a ceiling fan. Operated by remote and with option to reverse its spin, you chose to go with a ceiling fan model that, like a chandelier, offers beauty, functionality and sculptural purity.
Unlike an ordinary ceiling fan, Minka Aire models sold at retailers like Lumens combine your sense of design, love of organic forms and passion for energy efficiency all in one fan. Your design aesthetic: contemporary.
It’s something, isn’t it—one object you own can tell you what type of design style you’re into the most. Looking at the contents of your home, what is your design aesthetic?
As always, thanks for popping in for a visit! Have a gorgeous day/night depending on where you are in the world! Go with God and remember to be kind to one another!
