烘 [ home ] Design

烘 [ home ], the house where one’s family lives.  The word  “烘” is not the word for  “home” in Chinese (家 is the correct Chinese character).  But the pronunciation of  “烘” in Chinese is similar to  “home” in English , and if you look at each part of this Chinese character, you will find it very interesting. “火” on … Continue reading

About Interior Design 關於室內設計

This article is from previous blog which is in Chinese, if you could understand,great! if not, maybe you could try the “translate ” button, thank you.  * INTERIOR DESIGN *  室內設計    * インテリア デザイン 這個早在埃及古羅馬時代就開始的”觀念” 到了第二次世界大戰後才正式成為一種”專業” 對大部分的人來說 對於室內設計的印象侷限在”裝潢”跟”有閒錢才做的事”….. 其實不然 室內設計最重要的目的在於解決使用者的空間問題 並使環境能讓使用者使用起來更開心 生活得更好! 也就是說 一個好的設計師是來幫你解決並提供更好的空間使用方法 而不只是單單的幫你弄個漂亮的櫃子 或買好看的家具 當然 那些裝飾也很重要 因為沒有燈光 窗簾 家具 擺示等等的配搭 一個空間會顯得很無趣沒有個性(I mean..就連狗都會尿味來界定他的地盤了) 但 … Continue reading
