Cozy, warm, edgy or minimal, interior finishes make up the heart and soul of your home. These are the surfaces you interact with. Every day begins with the colors, fabrics and textures you wake up to every morning and surround yourself with. Moods are shaped while you are bathing, cooking, eating, entertaining, relaxing, reading and living. These finishes are what your senses are most aware of in your home because you see, touch, feel and interact with them constantly. For the most part they are passive, inert and motionless but aesthetically, they affect you. Well-designed finishes kept in good condition can lift your spirits.
All interior surfaces will receive interior finishes of one kind or another. Some materials would include: wood, carpet, paint, wallpaper, plaster, tile, stone, fabric, vinyl, glass, metal, concrete and more.
Until the early twentieth century, the interiors of homes was either plane or poisonous with a lot of ugliness in between.
