The “Grand Scale of Things” November 19


Manipulating scale is an interesting concept that interior designers love to engage in.  By exaggerating certain elements within a space, a designer or architect can make people take second looks, when they might not have before.  It can create a fun, almost whimsical feel, or it can be used to create a feeling of grandeur.  The image below is a major exaggeration of scale (but we love it for what it is!).  Objects that are clearly too big or too small are great conversation pieces, but beware not to overdo it.  They say everything is bigger in Texas…especially in Austin!
