Ambiance makes a big difference to mood. Let’s say you try a new restaurant. You heard from a friend that the food is great and the service is fast, so you make reservations for Friday night. You arrive at the restaurant to find it fairly crowded, but you are surprised. The walls are painted beige, the wood flood is unvarnished and the chairs and tables are cheap plastic patioware. Minimalist chic or not enough money put into a restaurant designer? I bet no matter how good the food is you wouldn’t return for another meal.
Or worse, let’s say you work in an office without a window, in a grey cubicle. You can decorate it how you want, but by the end of the day, you will probably be thirsting for color and light. Your employer should have taken into consideration some residential design. I bet you’d want to quit.
Space is very sensual. Texture, music, shadow, scent — it all goes into making an area attractive. If you skimp on lounge design or a restaurant designer, you will see the repercussions. And pay heed: expert interior decorators Los Angeles do exist and they can do a better job than you.
