People have long been modifying their surroundings as a form of self expression and a means of improving their quality of life. The evolution of Interior Design has played an integral role in identifying these solutions that are consistent with comfort, convenience and productivity while maintaining aesthetic integrity.


Whether you are working with existing furnishings and fabrics or “starting from scratch” with an empty room, you should always use the elements and principles of design as a guide in choosing everything. The elements are your tools or raw materials, much like paints are the basics to a painter. The elements of design include space, line, form, color, and texture. The principles of design relate to how you use these elements and are balance, emphasis, rhythm, proportion and scale, and harmony and unity.


Space defines the boundaries and sets the limits on the functional and decorative things you can do. Usually you will not determine the space; instead, you will be faced with the challenge of using the existing space effectively.


The lines in a room are second only to color in importance when it comes to setting the overall mood or feeling of a room. The lines of window fashions should support the dominant line of the room. In most situations, the dominant line is straight (vertical, horizontal or diagonal) rather than curved. Your choice of emphasizing the

direction of lines will determine the mood you want to create.

• Vertical lines add height and dignity, creating a more formal atmosphere. Vertical lines also balance the horizontal lines found in most furniture.

• Horizontal lines tend to create a restful, informal feeling. They work well in casual rooms or as relief to the strong verticals of formal rooms.

• Diagonal lines attract attention and lead the eye. They can be disturbing unless supported by verticals or opposing diagonals.

• Curved lines add a softening effect and keep the room from becoming too stiff. Use curved lines with some restraint to keep the room from becoming too soft and overly feminine.


Lines that join together produce the form, or shape, of an object, which in turn impacts the overall feeling of a room. Straight lines create rectangles, square and triangles. Curved lines form circles and ovals. The rectangle is the most popular form and is often the dominant shape in a room. Triangles provide stability and curved shapes soften the contours of objects.


More than any other element, color can make a room beautiful. Color can set the mood. It can make a room warmer or cooler, larger or smaller. It can hide unsightly features or call attention to the center of interest. Even with the simplest furnishings, the proper use of color can transform a room.


Texture is playing an increasingly important role in home decorating. Visual texture is a material’s apparent smoothness or roughness. To maintain and enhance a casual feeling, use fabrics that are more heavily textured, nubby or rough visual texture. Smooth, shiny surfaces such as silk, moiré, chintz and silk-like looks support a more formal feeling in a room. Using several levels of complementary textures adds variety and maintains interest. However, it is a good idea to avoid dramatic contrasts in texture.

Whether you are self-employed, or working in a company, working from home, or just making additional income during the evening,your home office can be comfortable, well-designed and tailored to your needs. You can have your appointments, share your office with your spouse and it will still feel professional and cosy.

How do you do that?

We have some tips for you !

In recent days, thousands of people have joined the workforce from home because of the spread of COVID 19 - some of them have to stay in isolation and prefer or are required to continue their work routines, and some are employed by companies that have allowed home-based work.

But after all, this is not an innovative form of work: since many jobs require only a personal computer and a network connection, for years many people - employed or self-employed - chose to work without wasting time and money on commuting, traffic jams and parking.

Of course, home-office has advantages and disadvantages and there are those who prefer to make a clear separation between home and workspace. But if you prefer or are required to work that way, there is no reason to work from bed or to occupy the dining table. In any home or apartment, in any size and style, you can arrange a comfortable space, fit for your home to serve you as an office and to fit your needs. Here are some examples and ideas.


Reception: A home office where meetings can be held

Many home offices should allow meetings on a daily or weekly basis, whether it is for meeting clients, colleagues or patients. To prevent disruptions to the normal and routine operation of the home, the office should have its own front door and toilet. If possible, it is advisable to place your home office close to the entrance to the home and create a visual separation such as a lightweight glass acoustic partition or a two-sided library that provides privacy.


In plain sight: a home office within the public space

In many homes, the work area is part of the family room, sometimes because of a lack of space and sometimes because of other considerations (for example, parents who want to look after the children during work hours).

Therefore, the design of the work space within a public space should support the balance between home and family and the many works and tasks that come with it. When customers seek to incorporate a workspace into the public space, we first look at the possibilities of integrating it into a hidden area. We look at which angle the work area will be more unpretentious when sitting on the sofa, as well as the nature of the work. If the client is doing accounting, for example, and needs a closet full of binders and a stack of paperwork on the table, every effort will be made not to place the work area in the living room. If the client only uses a laptop to work, it's easier to integrate the work area into the living room.


Private Area: Home office in separate space

Dedicating a separate, closed space to the home office provides peace and privacy.

The noise of children and guests in the home does not interfere with work, and the telephone and video calls that occur during work do not interfere with the other occupants.

A "work box" with two sliding separators can provide the privacy of an office and can be opened while not used to have a much more spacious feeling to the living space.


Making the most :

In many homes and apartments, the working area is relatively small and should be utilized to the maximum. In many cases, tenants do not work regularly from home but need a work space where they can complete occasional work hours or for various household and family needs. In this case, you can design a compact work area or choose a modular solution.


Teaming up :

When both spouses work from home - partially or fully - one working station is not enough, no matter what. In a double study, one large table can be used with two work positions or two tables facing or opposite each other, depending on the size of the space.

People often ask me why am I having such regard to Bauhaus style, what is there that is so exciting?

Well first of all I grew up surrounded by Bauhaus architecture, it some how remained in the subconscious, like a familiar flavor that reminds you of childhood, that is what Bauhaus style is for me.

The White City of Tel Aviv .... It has been called the White City for the simple reason that most buildings in the area are… you guessed it, white!

In the 1920's and 30's many of the graduates of the Bauhaus High School (which means "home and construction"), dispersed throughout the world,after the school was closed with the rise of Nazi rule. Some moved to the US but many moved to Tel Aviv and devoted themselves to creating architectural solutions in the spirit of the Bauhaus movement

In the basis of the Bauhaus style was the need to utilize space so construction was carried out on pillars, which allowed to maximize the use of interior space. By the use of beams instead of supporting walls, while strengthening the skeleton of the house with iron or steel. All of these replaced the mass in favor of open and accessible spaces.

Although the Bauhaus school existed from 1919 until 1933, it left a lasting legacy on the world of architecture, art and design.The works of r artists and architects such as Lyonel Feininger, Paul Klee, Marcel Breuer and Mies van der Rohe convinced the modernist followers. And they still do today.
