Knowing how to incorporate the sub-sections of a concept into your interior design approach makes for a balanced concept that is inclusive of everything to create a visually pleasing aesthetic. Choose colours that flow throughout your concept and relate to all of the design elements that you are making use of. Your design elements can be influenced by any form of art, be it traditional, historic, modern, or even nature.
