Select three residential interior spaces that you feel have been successfully executed and analyse them based on the elements and principles of design.

Please make a note of the main feel/style/mood at the start of your analysis; as that will affect how you relate the elements and principles back to that.

This exercise will help you appreciate and begin to understand the complexity of successfully designed spaces.

STEP BY STEP GUIDE

The marks for this assignment are based on the quantity and accuracy of the analysis that you provide, and we have put together a step by step guide to help you with the assignment:

1. Read through the module and for each element and principle write a short summary to use as a reference for the analysis.

2. Select your images of successfully designed rooms.
3. Take your first image and write a list of all of the elements and principles.

4. Use the reference guide that you wrote in step 1 to try and identify how each of the elements and principles has been used in the space.

5. Repeat steps 3 and 4 for each of the remaining images.

WRITTEN ANALYSIS TIPS

The analysis is to be broken down into each of the design elements and principles, and we recommend that you list them as subheadings and use either dot point or short paragraph format to write the description of how it has been used in the space.

It is recommended that you use design terminology in your description of the elements and principles to demonstrate your understanding of the concepts, and we have compiled a guide to help with the task:

Elements and Principles Overview

In its simplest form, the elements make the individual parts of the design and the principles describe how the (individual) elements have been used.

If we were to use an analogy of the elements and principles of design, we could liken it to a cooking recipe, where the elements are the individual ingredients, and the principle is the cooking method that describes how to use the ingredients.

Space

Space is a 3-dimensional form, and when you are describing it, you would look at the overall volume of the room and separately how the negative and positive space has been used and the effect it has on the overall design of the room.

Line

When describing line, be specific about the direction of the line (vertical, diagonal, curved or horizontal) and the effect it has on the overall design.

Shape

When describing shape, be specific about the type of shapes used in the room (curvilinear, rectilinear, geometric, organic or abstract).

Color

Describe the dominant and accent colors used in the room.

Texture

When describing texture, be specific about the type of visual and tactile textures in the room.

Light
Describe the visible natural and/or artificial lighting in the room.

Pattern

Pattern is the regular repetition of a motif onto a surface. These can be created in many ways outside of the patterned fabric, and some examples include timber floorboards, panelling, stair balustrade, cut out screens, ceiling beams etc.

Balance

When describing balance, specify the type of balance has been used (symmetrical, asymmetrical or radial) noting that in some rooms you might find that more than one type has been used, in this instance describe all of them.

Rhythm

When describing rhythm, specify the type of rhythm that has been used (repetition, alternation or progression).

Emphasis

To emphasize something is to make it stand out from its surroundings, and by attracting your attention, you are creating a focal point. For your analysis, identify where the focal point of the room is and why it stands out (emphasized).

Proportion and Scale

Scale refers to the size of an item or space, and we use proportion to compare the scale of one item to another. In your analysis, you can refer to this separately, or if a proportion method like the golden ratio or 60/30/10 rule has been used explained how in your analysis.

Harmony

The success of the design can be attributed to the principle of harmony, which is created by using elements and materials that have a commonality. In your analysis, you are to list and describe each of these that have contributed to the success of the design, and you will find the greater number of commonalities, the more harmonious the design is.

TIPS FOR SELECTING IMAGES

We recommend Pinterest to source your pictures, however, you can go to Google Images or explore the websites from the ‘Resources’ section within the student site. Alternatively, you can take your own photographs, or scan and upload pictures from magazines or books.

When selecting your images, make sure the entire space can be seen as opposed to a cropped view of only one area within a space. Another tip is to find rooms that are visually interesting as this will help you to identify the design elements in the image. You are best to work with professionally designed spaces to get the most out of this exercise.
