Nature Inspirations - Hills and Valleys
The Northwest is an excellent example of the “hills & valleys” concept. OK, maybe I should say “mountains & valleys” when you consider all the mountains around us. The idea is that when you look into the distance you see things go up and down, get higher and lower. We also see this in the cityscape with taller and then lower buildings. Wouldn’t it be boring if everything was the same height? This holds true in our homes as well. When you scan your room do you have “hills & valleys” that sort of flow up and down around the room? This is good design. If everything is at the same height it’s somewhat unappealing. If you have a super low chair with a very tall bookcase next to it perhaps you need a piece of art that is sort of an in between height on the wall between the two pieces. This will help your eyes roll up to the top of the bookcase from the chair. Hope this helps. Happy end of November!
