It is also important to leave open space. There is a generosity in these spaces. We are not competing for space. These areas become pregnant with possibility for reflection. Space also heightens our experience of the forms within or bounding the space by contrast.
Even in open floor plan homes, it is important to create designated areas with differing purposes and moods. When working with that situation there is more emphasis on an open flow and communication between each area, so it is important to plan the groupings within that larger context or create partitions to separate them visually.

I am offering a 3 session class on arranging both objects and furniture in space at two different times and days of the week at the Orinda Community Center, 28 Orinda Way, Orinda, CA starting Monday, May 2.
Interior space is defined by the placement of furnishings, art and more. This affects the feeling and flow of energy in our homes and work spaces. The goal is not just to decorate the space, but to create balance and harmony, so that energy can move freely and enrich us.
With hands-on experiential exercises and designing the layout of one room, students will learn how color, pattern and texture impact how we perceive spatial relationships. I will share some of my design tips from 8 years as an interior decorator and home stager.
The class meets Mondays, 10 am – 12 pm or Thursdays, 6 pm – 8 pm, starting the week of May 2. Contact Orinda Parks & Recreation to register and for further details (925) 254-2445 or go to: Orinda Parks & Recreation Online Registration and enter barcode “21292”
