Texture and Color for Interior Design in Architecture Projects

“Great architecture does more than just work – it transcends itself, its occupants, and its environment.” 

Dean Larkin

When eschewing the confines of modern structures, a multi-layered complexity becomes the key to creating an effortless and remarkable piece of architecture. At Dean Larkin Design, we combine contemporary aesthetic principles with a keen understanding of traditional architecture, a fusion process that empowers us to design unique structured environments.

An integral part of this fusion process is interior design. Every project we embark upon is more than merely a structure to be built or redesigned, but a harmonious unity of exterior and interior, of space and fixtures, and of color and texture.

The Interior Design Process in an Architectural Project

In the cosmopolitan vibrance of Southern California, architecture doesn’t just inhabit space, but defines it, telling a story that transcends the traditional boundaries of walls and ceilings. The interior design phase of an architectural project at Dean Larkin Design builds on this transcendent narrative. We frame the design in a context that is multi-dimensional and holistic, focusing on aesthetics and the ability of a given texture or color to evoke a mood, a memory, or just the right feel of a space.

We make sure that our interior design process harmoniously unifies with the evolving architectural project. We consider each room, the overall space, and the clients’ personalities/needs, and interweave the individual design elements such as furniture, fixtures, lighting, and core materials into a coherent, completely balanced whole.

The Role of Textures and Colors

In our luxury interior projects, the use of textures and colors is an essential part of the design process. They add depth and dimension to a space, and also help to bind the overall design together.

Textures, both tactile and visual, introduce variations that add complexity and richness to the design. The textures make a space more enticing and welcoming by bring life and authenticity. Incorporating different textures can help to differentiate spaces within a home while still maintaining a common design thread that ties everything together.

Colors wield a powerful influence over the mood of a room and its occupants. They can significantly impact where the eye is drawn, the perceived size and space of a room, and how the room is used. Diverse palettes offer many options for accentuating the architectural elements of a building.

DLD Brings Harmony to Exterior and Interior Design Projects

The Dean Larkin Design team understands that integrating color and texture into a unified design is an art form. We adapt this principle in our practices by picking and stylishly blending shades and textures that resonate with the architecture, creating an atmosphere that enhances what the structure represents.

TRUE ARCHITECTURE IS A LUXURY OF IMAGINATION – at Dean Larkin Design, we see every project as a blank canvas on which we create a masterpiece of design that transcends expectations, engaging the senses in a sublime marriage of color, texture, space, and form.
