A place for myself

 

As soon as a child starts to go to school, one of first things we do as a family is, start to clearly define our child’ personal space. This might mean – giving the child his own room, his own bed, cupboard, study space and play space. We also see, how kids welcome and are ready to take build their ‘own’ separate space, distinct from the family space.

This means that the need of having a personal space is an innate need of us human beings. We also know that having a space for self is very peaceful. It calms down our mind. No matter how socially evolved we are, we sometimes just want to be alone. It’s a human need to spent time alone too. It is also possible that we live alone at some stage in our lives – may be as a student or a single person. Might happen right! Regardless of the reason, the need to emphasize our uniqueness and independence stays very much prominent. And one way in which it gets reflected is within our and only our ‘individual space’.

For example, if we look at the room of a teenager, we see it personalized in a million different ways! This means that there is a ‘world within a world’ – at VOX we call it a Microcosm. It is fascinating to see how the world of an individual person is. Personalization today can apply to almost anything. In interiors, we decide not only about the final look of the furniture, adjusting it to our tastes and preferences, but also about the surfaces and details of floors, walls, and doors. When making these choices, as a rule of interior designing, it is worth choosing two, maximum three, leading colors for the interior. Choosing only three leading colors, will combine our microcosm in a manner that is not visually overwhelming, and this will prevent our imagination from running wild when choosing accessories.

Living in big cities, a lot of us might be having smaller room size. And a lot of us might me living in rented homes. Regardless of whether it is rented or owned, our life itself is very transient. It keeps changing often. This means that our spaces too, should be transformable with ease. This also means that when we are decorating our rooms or creating our microcosms, we have to do it carefully and thoughtfully.

 Trying to fit our whole life into a tiny space, we are forced to develop creative spaces. So, let's choose a few items that are ‘adaptable’ or modular that work in various changing environments. The size of the furniture and a functional wat of arranging them in the space is of great importance as it allows you to tame the mess and improve the comfort in the same.

We live in a very dynamic world…within that Dubai or UAE is yet more dynamic given the current times. The place we live in, the place we work at and our lifestyle…it’s unique to this city…meaning we have our own ways of functioning in this country. More than that, the dynamism of our personal lives, makes us think of modular and clever solutions that consider the ever-changing interests and requirements of modern nomads. As soon as we come in this country, we need to quickly create a home out of a new place that we choose to live in. We are not even sure, for how do we plan to stay in this house. Every year, as soon as our children move to the next grade at school, we feel the need to re-arrange their rooms in accordance with their new mental and physical milestone. Sometimes we also feel the need to re-organize our homes and rooms to accommodate a guest. Small apartments are always a challenge, no matter what the circumstances are. The solution to all the above is to mix different styles. Have the freedom to arrange the same stuff differently, combining old and new, colourful with monochrome, exclusive with very ordinary. And all this is possible, because they are a subset of your very tastes and preference…and that is unique. Remember…even if you live in the same city, same community which has a row of same looking townhouses, there are no two homes which look the same! Each one’s home is so different, so unique, and so beautiful in its own way. Depending on the unique character and preferences, you can enjoy an impeccable order that works for you. You also have the luxury of deciding where you would like the smallest piece of our home should fit. Or vice versa - enjoy the undisturbed imperfection, which is an expression of your limitless freedom. Therefore, there is no right or wrong. In case of home interiors, each method is good as long as, it is "YOURS".

Regardless of the age and stage of life, each of us has a desire to emphasize our individuality. It is perineal. The space in our homes say a lot about us. It is our home, we can feel at ease, safe and most comfortable. This is this ‘home’ where we come back to every day. It is this space, where we deal with our life every day! The house is a never-ending story of our lives, that we write on our own!
