Back by Popular Demand! The number one requested TOPIC for Chatti Patti Talks Design is "Balance in Design", so here is Balancing Act: Part II
Interior Design is a Balancing Act. A balancing act of form (shape), function, color, proportion, scale, light, shadow, texture, pattern, accessories, upholstery, case goods, rugs, art, focal points, space, lines and rest for the eye. That in itself should let you know that it can be a daunting task to adequately and correctly design a space that creates a sense of calm, vibrancy, Feng Shui, an acquired and collected look, good traffic flow, etc. As you study the images below, I will point out the elements of each space that create good balance in the overall design or specific features of that room.
So you may be thinking, that’s great, but I don’t have a HUGE space. Here’s some examples of great balance in smaller spaces!
I hope you have enjoyed this post and understand a little more about the balance in putting a room together! Thank you for stopping by Chatti Patti Talks Design! Please feel free to leave a comment or mention topics you would like to learn more about as many did about balance, hence this post~
This year, Chatti Patti will be talking lots of design and to give you a glimpse of what exactly is in store, here’s the shortlist of what will be featured coming up:
✪ A post holiday synopsis of the Glendower Mansion in Lebanon decorated for the Historic Holiday Home Tour.
✪ An in-depth look at what actually goes on in a Charity Designer Show House! Chatti Patti takes readers on a sneak peek-behind the scenes of the activities of the interior designers, trades personnel and the homeowner of the Historic (almost) Rike Estate in Dayton, Ohio which is being presented by the Dayton Philharmonic Volunteer Association. Privileged to be an interior designer on the project at the estate and member of the DPVA, I will share a little about what it takes to pull this off. SO very much hard work is required from countless individuals not to mention the tireless efforts of the outstanding Board of Directors and their committees to create, organize and produce a beautiful Show House for the public to trample through. But more about that later and it will probably have it’s own page because Chatti Patti has lots to say about this Show House!
✪ Two or more interviews with some high profile ‘Leaders’ in the Interior Design Industry. Be prepared to be amazed!
✪ The “Year Of The Rug” Yep, Chatti Patti and special guests will educate you on the unique characteristics of rugs and how to select a wonderful rug for your home if you do not call an interior designer to help in your selection which would of course be Chatti Patti’s first suggestion!
So there you have it. Oh, and I promised to post about my sister-in-law’s fabulous Farm House that she and her husband recently built. Here’s some beautiful photos from my recent visit to Northern Michigan over the holidays. Much more about this lovely project in the months to come. Stay tuned!

If you’ve visited Chatti Patti Talks Design™ lately you may have wondered, “What in the world is going on with this website?” Truth is, it was hacked and suffered a severe malware issue which pretty much had pieces and complete pages of the website disappearing and looking quite crazy! So I wanted to apologize for any inconvenience this may have caused you and to let you know the good news is that the site is back up and running intact and probably not entertaining Google ads anymore since that’s where the issue originated! Who’d of thought?
