The classrooms are also for summer

Surely when you return from vacation you have booked a few days to enjoy your home. Relax, disconnect, make new plans … are activities that you will perform during the last days before returning to the routine and for this there is a space: our room.

For this reason, today we will address in the blog entry of Disak Studio different ideas to give the salons a touch more summery. Small changes so that the space goes to the consonant of the station in which we are. Do you stay to see them?

Salons: small summer gestures
If you consider that it is not the time to make big changes in this space and we simply want a more comfortable and summer lounge, the most practical option is to resort to small gestures. The most recommended is to change fabrics and colors of textiles.

Not only the cushions (we recommend you read this entry: How to place the cushions on the sofa?), Also in tablecloths and even in curtains.

Following with these small gestures for the salons in summer, we can make reference to the visual question. A small painting or mural that takes us to the ocean could be the centerpiece to continue this trend in the rest of the room.

Another idea would be to place accessories in other materials: jute, rattan or water hyacinth could be great options. In addition, they are things that you can take advantage of for your exterior decoration.

And you, do you dare to make these small changes in your living room? Are you adapting the spaces of your house to the stations? We are looking forward to your opinions.

Sort following Marie Kondo's method

Surely you have heard of her. Marie Kondo has become the guru of order thanks to her book published in 2014: “The magic of order, tools to order your house … and your life!”.

Not only is it about ordering, this Japanese proposes a new philosophy of life to achieve well-being within our homes. From Disak Studio we recommend, without doubt, the work of Kondo, but here are some keys to make ordering easier.

Sort following the guidelines of Marie Kondo
Let’s not fool ourselves. If you really want to order your closets, that means eliminating and getting rid of what we do not need. If we do not take this first step, the “rebound effect” will occur in a few days, that is, there will still be many unnecessary things that will create disorder in a short time.
But what do we remove from our closets and our lives? Kondo measures it in happiness. That is, each one must objectively assess if they really need that object and the happiness it brings.
How do I order? Better fold the clothes than hang them because it is easier to locate them visually. Those clothes that must be hung, the author bets to place on the left side that which is more “heavy” visually (coats, sweatshirts, …) and on the right, the lightest garments.
Inside the drawers, although you can not see it, you also have to have everything in order. The boxes are the most effective: socks, underwear, … so everything will always be in order.
And you, did you know Marie Kondo? If you have not yet read “The magic of order, tools to order your house … and your life!”, We recommend it because it is not only to achieve order in your home, but also in your life.

And it is that if we think about it well, we live in a society against the clock. Work, consumption, daily life … Therefore this movement provides the possibility of leading a fuller life, so that each individual controls and takes control of his or her own life journey.

The origin of the Slow movement is Rome, Italy. Specifically in the Plaza de España, when in 1986 a Mc Donalds was opened. The journalist Carlo Petrini considered that they were trespassing the limits and advanced the dangers that hung over the alimentary habits of the Europeans. This is how the well-known Slow Food movement would emerge.

Slow Decoration: What is it?
And in the decoration? How did it affect? The goal of slow decoration is to create homes where wellbeing prevails. Places of encounter, of calmness and of relaxation. How to get it?

Talk at School Interior Design - Disak Studio

Teaching is not a vital function, because it does not have an end in itself; the vital function is to learn.

These were some wise words of Aristotle. Learning marks our lives and learning something about what we like, what we love, keeps us motivated during our existence.

For this reason, students attend the Interior Design School, put on the brand by the Complutense University of Madrid and the New Style magazine. There, they offer studies related to interior design and the result (taking into account the prestige of the two entities) is remarkable: students with great training on what they are passionate about.

Yesterday, Saturday May 26, we had the great opportunity to be before the students of the Diploma of Advanced Interior Design to give a talk at Interior School and talk about our experience, work and perception of the sector.
