I’m always in search of inspiring ways to decorate my home and when I saw this interior design portfolio I knew there was much to be learned about enhancing my home decor using these beautiful and stylistic elements.
Interior Designer Carolyn DiCarlo knows a lot about how artwork can speak to you without words much the same way music inspires you to dance and artwork inspires you to create. She uses an integrated approach to architecture and interior design using the beat of all five senses. Her interior design portfolio is not only impressive – but inspiring.
I immediately fell in love with her work and her way of thinking. I love the invoking questions she asks about interior design like, How does your space make you feel? What does it invoke? Relaxation? Inspiration? Creativity? Tranquility? I think it can be all those things.
I love the minimal yet stylish and thought-provoking design of Carolyn’s work – every inch of the elements in the room decor below are warm, inviting, and inspiring!
Sacred space, as Carolyn states, is all about intention – “therefore the magic of sacred architecture although long forgotten in our rationalist world, seeks to remind us that we are more than just what we do, but instead, is about what we feel.”
When I walk into a design space, my senses always come alive. I’m either transported into the familiar or taken to a new and exciting visual experience. I am always so grateful when someone walks into my Townhouse feeling inspired. When they tell me how much they love my decorating elements and style, I’m both grateful and thrilled!
There’s nothing more satisfying than realizing all the hard work that goes into decorating is appreciated and folks find it inspiring. When the first sentence out of someone’s mouth is, I just love your home – it’s decorated so beautifully is music to my ears.
I love using color in my Townhouse – below, this bathroom was transformed using abstract tile and color as the focus.
In a room full of neutral tones, Carolyn used artwork as a key and color driven element. The architectural windows also add a decor element of their own. What is really impressive about this space is the amount of lighting with these beautiful windows. I would love more light in my dining room – we have plans to update this room this year and I love learning tips and tricks about decorating to assist!
I am drawn to the artwork in this bedroom too. I love how it was hung lower than the average height used. I’m always pulled in my the placement of the chair – using decor elements like smaller pieces of furniture can also add wonderfully exciting decorating elements to a room too.
Again, we see how pops of color are using in these rooms to create a warm and inviting space.
There are several decor elements that pull me right into this room. I’m doing flips over the doors! I love how even the door trim matches the door pattern. I also love the muted greens used on the desk and chair. And the slightly hidden but stunning mirrored end table to pull it all together.
This room below proves the point that you don’t need more than one decor element to make your statement. I appreciate how using an element with height pulls you into the room.
Using elements like lamps to decorate is no secret but staging them in a captivating way is a skill I appreciate.
Below, these paired lamps create an atmosphere of relaxation and a calm centering force. The artwork is used as a strong focal point.
The architectural elements in this room take my breath away. It’s minimalistic yet inviting and visually interesting.
I hope you were as inspired as I was from this interior design portfolio. I make notes and plan on using some of the design elements in my home too.
