Exploring history through interior design

In the early days, interior design was a little known concept. What seems obvious today was not so back in the day. The art of using design while decorating homes first originated in the early 70s. While this may be the first accurate history of interior design, the first signs go way back to pre-historic human dwellings.

Civilization began with interior design

While the primitive man may have been more focused on usage rather than decoration, there is still strong evidence to show that they decorated their huts with artifacts. Pieces like pottery decorated with paint and sea shells were found that proved this fact.

As the years moved, people were able to work with different ways of decorating their homes. The Romans were amongst the first to show case their wealth in the form of grand interiors for their palaces. Soft furnishings with stylish feet were a typical interior design element that could be seen in most Roman homes.
The Dark Ages came shortly after and this was a sad time for interior design. Wooden flooring, dark interiors and basic designs constituted most of the designs during this period.

The revival of interior design

The time after the Dark Ages saw a massive turn around when it came to design. Large paintings and beautiful decorations with more than a hint of beauty were the norm of day. The regular influences of architecture and design that we see in most design elements has been derived after this period.

Evolved through the ages, the current trend we look towards right now is what we draw most of our influences from. People have now realized that they can form their own tastes and styles when it comes to designing their homes.

Ornate decorations interposed with classic furnishings are a regular setting in most traditional homes now. Interior design is taken extremely seriously and there’s a very obvious love for a fusion of the different trends through the ages.
