Sense of Style - Nonn's

When talking interior design, the conversation usually turns to how a home looks. But how you feel about your home is based on so much more than just your sense of sight! This week, we’re using all of our senses—sight, smell, hearing, taste and touch—to design a home that’s good to look at, and even better to live in. Through smart speakers, soft daybeds, and tasteful kitchens, we’ll develop a sixth, far-superior sense: a sense of style!

Sense of Style - Nonn's

When talking interior design, the conversation usually turns to how a home looks. But how you feel about your home is based on so much more than just your sense of sight! This week, we’re using all of our senses—sight, smell, hearing, taste and touch—to design a home that’s good to look at, and even better to live in. Through smart speakers, soft daybeds, and tasteful kitchens, we’ll develop a sixth, far-superior sense: a sense of style!

Visible Style

Any remodeler will tell you that stunning interior design is built on three visual basics: space, style, and (color) scheme. Space is all about finding a balance between the negative (empty) and positive (filled with objects) areas in your home. Search for that equilibrium—where there’s ample décor, but no disarray. Your décor, however, is dependent on your home’s visual style; you can stick with the classic style, or move towards modern. Travel to the coast, or visit the countryside. Wherever you decide to take your style, just be sure to keep it consistent. The same goes for color; pick a scheme that works with the style, stick to it, and things start looking really good.

Pro-Tip: If you’re in a location with long winters, consider a coastal design style! There’s nothing like walking into a warm, beachy home after a hard day’s work.

Sound Advice

When it comes to acoustics in a home you’re kind of stuck with what you have. That is, unless you’re a builder or remodeler yourself. Luckily, you don’t need tons of technical training to surround yourself with good vibrations all day! With a few smart speakers, you can serenade yourself with your favorite tunes, audio books, and movies—upstairs or down. Just pick the rooms where having music really matters, plug your speakers in, and let the good tunes roll.

Soft Touch

Designing for touch is about comfort—plain and simple. Wherever you come in contact with your home, make it a pleasant interaction: go for higher thread counts in your bedroom, get dining room chairs with a little give, and splurge on a super-soft area rug! If you’re restricted by a certain visual style, there are some other, subtler ways to increase the comfort. Like keeping throw pillows and blankets in each room for a cozy escape. Or putting ottomans in front of chairs for makeshift daybeds. One thing’s for sure, though: the more comfortable you make each room, the more it’ll feel like home.

Pro-Tip: Second only to a bed, flooring is what we spend most of our time on—so you might as well make it comfy! Carpeting, laminate, luxury vinyl and wood are all a treat to your feet, especially in those colder climates. So long, cold toes!

Acquired Taste

Yup, you guessed it: the final two senses we’re designing for—taste and smell—find their home in the kitchen! To do them both justice, prioritize three things: ventilation, refrigeration, and preparation. Since your sense of smell and taste are so intertwined, proper aeration is key; installing a powerful vent hood will keep odors out, and fresh air in. Good-tasting food, on the other hand, takes more than just clean air—it takes good tech, too. Refrigerators with isolated humidity zones, convection-steam ovens, and gas or induction cooktops all make for a truly tasteful kitchen, and a more sensible home.

Pro-Tip: For a fresher smelling kitchen (and better tasting food) assemble a mini herb garden! With just a few used food cans, some seeds, soil, and a little vitamin D, you can savor fresh rosemary, thyme, mint and more—all year long.
