As founder of this venture, I would like to introduce you to Ombre Design Studio.
I’ve completed my education in B.Com Management Sciences, and with a Diploma in Interior Decorating and a Diploma in Interior Design, as well as working in the field, obtained the skills to successfully create and/or transform interior spaces.
Through my exposure to different social and work environments I’ve gained insight into the impact surroundings can have on people and their wellbeing on both physical and emotional levels. I’d normally desired solutions to problems or some sort of improvement from current settings including enhanced productivity or healthy relaxation. These experiences have led me to understand the importance of properly planned and harmonious interior design.
The design of a space may directly and indirectly influence individual welfare on a micro level and, thus, communal wellbeing on a macro level. In my opinion, an individual’s wellbeing (among other facets) is making waves all round, through actions and interactions with others, impacting his / her immediate culture, social network and wider society. With this in mind, as individuals, we are responsible for aiming toward being the best versions of ourselves.
My viewpoint of design in interior environments is that there should always be a holistic approach with the intention of ensuring people’s wellbeing and fulfilment. The goal should be proper functioning of areas for their specific purposes achieved by, among others, minimising frustration. With this philosophy in mind I also acknowledge every person as an individual and aim towards creating interior spaces that will make one fit in yet stand out among the crowd – everyone is unique and have their own requirements and style.
This subject is so vast and can be explored open-endedly, and the connection of it to other matters is quite complex. The quality of our environment can have a massive effect on our health and happiness, and interior spaces are where most of us spend most of our time. Factors such as natural and artificial light, noise, storage space, traffic flow, ergonomics, among others, are all aspects to be considered when assessing a living space. Interior settings can enable relations, decrease stress, affect our moods, attitude, behaviour and our drive to do something. Several studies have been done about the influence that our interior surroundings have on us.
I admire people and organizations that strive for improving wellness and health with improved environments, especially with a holistic approach. A good example of such an organization is the International WELL Building Institute, which manages the WELL Building StandardTM worldwide to advance human health and well-being through the built environment. The WELL Building StandardTM covers seven fundamental notions while the WELL Community StandardTM builds on these and concentrates on ten concepts namely air, water, nourishment, light, fitness, temperature, sound, materials, mind and community, to support the progression of health-focused, united and maintained societies.
It can be difficult to create new, or change existing places, spaces and habits, but practical applications assuring improved wellbeing are inevitably crucial. As with a lot of matters in our lives, our dreams are sometimes far from reality, but this doesn’t mean we should stop striving toward turning these ideals into action and accordingly creating new, desired realities. Our mindsets are key.
