  • Colour – Colour is one of the most important elements of design. Whether you like neutrals or bold shades, colours determine the look of your space
  • Form – Form refers to different shapes such as geometric, curved, open and closed. This helps in creating a theme for a room
  • Light – Light can set the mood of a room, be it artificial or natural light. Moreover, lighting also affects the sense of space, and can make a room look bigger or smaller
