FRAMING YOUR VIEW

What a great idea it is to frame your view…

I’m walking through the start of the Rijksmuseum in Amsterdam and I’m instantly drawn to the view that’s been framed through architectural inspiration. It’s a great way to incorporate the feel of the outside world bring it indoors to your surroundings. 

This hallway has been designed to incorporate a modern sleek look with its old world heritage surroundings. Nature, water and light give this space a warming feeling as the balance of all these facets are being brought together. Each window gives you a different view allowing the outside world to dictate the environment you see before you.

Someone in my family who is well known for their style has created a house with this similar look. They used their windows as a ‘frame’ to capture the beautiful view of the outside at their country house (I’ll see if I can get photos to show you and blog about it later).

Here, I love the tranquility of the water as the sun reflection shines bouncing life and light back into the darker internal space. This paired with nature’s beautiful greenery just makes it an eye capturing view. Honestly, these photos are not doing it justice. When you stand there in real life with the framed view before you the impact you get is far greater than what you see in this picture. That being said I had to snap shot it to capture the space for a later project I might work on however in the meantime I’m sharing with you.

So how have I created a space here? Well let’s be honest, I haven’t. However, I’m sharing what I saw and thought would be inspirational to those who have future renovations or building in mind. This is about seeing the endless possibilities we have on offer to us when we are thinking about what we want. The only way to know what we do and don’t like, is to see it, think about it, and compare all our options which help us with our thought process when we are ‘creating spaces’.

Until next time, see it, love it, create it! This is Character 32 doing her best to help you!
