Integrated Interior Design

Integrated Interior Design

What visits your mind if the words Interior design pop before you? It may be walls, floors, decorations, that is aesthetic, instagrammable, and so forth. A good Interior design may be the one that is pleasing to our eyes—one that is mesmerizing and leave us a memorable memoir.

I bet it’s a nod to this rationale.

Nevertheless, may IOOR Studio propose you a prose that we hold dear?

“A good Interior design is one that is well-integrated.”

What we want to emphasize here is every part of Interior design is integral. They need to be integrated, for every piece of it completes one another. Marketing communication isn’t the only matter that must be integrated, Interior design goes the same.

Here are the wrinkle of ours about Integrated Interior Design.

Interpret the identity into Interior design

A brand has an identity that is captured on its logo and a philosophy that is excerpted from the mind of its author. One and the other brand isn’t identical, they have their own brand story. Beside the wants and the needs of our client, we have to interpret their brand identity into the design we create.

Budget of the client

Our clients may have endless coins inside their pocket, but they must have their own budget. Therefore, we can’t just design an exceptional Interior, we also have to match their budget and be extra mindful to spend every cent of it.

To the details

We have mentioned earlier about brand identity. To create a whole Interior design, every part has to be integrated, therefore we have to imprint the identity into the details—lighting, decoration, furniture, walls, floors, ceilings, et cetera.

Build it right

Every contractor has their own finesse. If you want to build a commercial space, then you need to find the one who is experienced in building one. You need to find the right contractor that is able to build your design and understand every notion of the details. Colliding with the one isn’t a kismet, but a journey of trust.

To be aesthetic and instagrammable is cool, but an exceptional one stays at the back of people’s mind. Integrating every integral part of Interior design helps you to be one. From the brand identity, to the detail of the design, and building it right, you have to sail across the journey.

Yes, integrated Interior design it is.

How to Master The Art of Interior Design

How to Master The Art of Interior Design

Stealing the lyrics from the legend Rick Price, only heaven knows……what five years can do. No one grasps the idea of how the universe will unfold. Though one tries to be a psychic, saying that five is a number of peace and harmony, let us tune out the noise and skip the fairyland. In fact, IOOR Studio has turned 5, and be what it is now.

Life is indeed like a book, and each page holds a story. The next paragraph is unknown unless we write more. And in order to know what life has for us, we keep choosing between two, left or right, move ahead or stop. So let us tell you the tale of IOOR Studio, how it has waltzed through thin ice and colorful popping confetti.

ioor3

It began in the mid of 2011, the triad founder of IOOR Studio, Nydia, Jane, and Robert, nine-to-five as an interior designer in a different company right after they graduated. They had walked their own path for almost two years, but at some point, Nydia asked Jane and Robert to sail the Interior Design world together and inspire the world through itーwhich later becomes the vision of IOOR Studio.

Sailing to the same harbor, they built IOOR Studio at the end of 2012 and started designing one’s home. Nydia said, “Entrepreneurs who haven’t labored in a garage can’t call themselves as an entrepreneur”. Yes, they spent the first year of their journey in a 3×3 meter room. Revisit the memory, everyday they started and ended the day by carrying a coffee table to the room and returned it back afterward. At that coffee table, their masterpieces of work were created.

Approximately two years were spent in a search of their identity. They got a lot of offers to design commercial spaces, and worked on it together until IOOR Studio has its own design team and able to do more and bigger projects. Later, IOOR Studio also crossed path with press media and couples of their work were covered in prestigious magazines and broadcasted in many TV programs.

Today, 10.000 hours has passed and IOOR Studio has mastered the art of Interior Design, especially in a matter of commercial space. But in the middle of it, they feel like something is missing. They used to design one’s home, but as they excelled in commercial design, they missed that home is the start of everything.

Inspiration should start at home, doesn’t home supposed to be the source of it? Like a lamp that is electrified to kindle up the room, one must be inspired for him to seize the day. Therefore, after five years of the voyage, they established HOOM Living. So that they can build a high-quality urban society, that is inspired everyday, through Interior Design.

We never knew what another five years will do to us, but we decide to keep counting. 10,000 hours have made us a professional, this might be a point, but there’s something beyond lies behind. Inspiration, the word that will always be an “I do” in everything we do. From the beginning of the story, it’s never about us, nor we’ve ever dreamt to be the first. We just faithfully learn to be better, to inspire the world with what we do. We started from a scratch, and we make it. So it’s not a wishful thinking for you, to start dreaming a dream that you dreamt again.

Ardent Coffee & Kitchen: A Cure for Your Hangry State of Mind

Hey folks, oh yes you, who aren’t 80% of water but coffee, and you who fall head over heels to the smell of freshly brewed coffee. Do you remember the bitter excitement of Ardent Archipelago that we’ve previously written to you? It is now perfectly ready to capture more happiness in a cup, specifically to satisfy the coffeegasm of Western populace who live near Pesanggrahan.

6This two-story coffee hideout won’t be the one you expected to be, the mural walls or the wooden table topped with baby’s breath, nope. It’s a synthesis of glasshouse, Japanese, and exceptional coffee. Japanese fusion eats and bites are thoughtfully served for you who come with a hangry state of mind. As well as getting your daily caffeine fix here, you are also able to learn about your favorite little bean at the coffee academy upstairs.

Glasshouse is used to be an exterior thingy, yet we twist it as the interior concept. Covered with black frames, greenies will do their duty to liven up the place. While colors such as broken white and cream will paint the walls to show the simplicity that makes you feel as if you’re at home. A combination of all these colors hopefully will bring both bright and refreshed tones as you walk in.

Japanese interior was captured through light furniture and a drop of Hinoki wood color. Ardent’s logo is also brewtifully imprinted in some of the furniture, such as top table and table legs, which are manufactured by our sister company, The Toop Table. As you step closer to the bar, you will also find their logo that is installed on its back panel. And for the floor plan, terrazzo pattern granite is applied to complete the modern contemporary look. Their identity is glued to every corner of the space.

Could you picture in mind how Ardent turns to be? Either yes or no, it’s always a good option to visit this place. Drink a potion made from magic beans that will bring you back to life, survive the day and face the morning people. May a cup of coffee from Ardent kicks in before the reality does.

Are You Building A House Or A Home?

Whether you live in the heart of a city or a far-far-away suburb, you still want a safe haven called home, where you can take a deep breath after a very long day hustling with office life. Therefore, it’s never an effortless work to build your own place, as it is the place where your story begins.

It’s true that building a house is not a plaything, nor is easy to do. Either assembling it from scratches or just doing a minor renovation, it’s still not as simple as playing The Sims on your smartphone. That’s why, building a home is even harder, because a house is made of wall and painted by furniture, while a home is built of love and brushed by dreams. No matter how big your house is, the happiness within is what truly matters.

There may be endless considerations you have to mediate overtime, as a house is not for just one, but at least there are two different creatures with contrast preferences, opinions and likings. It should tell a story of a family that dwells inside, and an anthology of what they love. As mainstream as it can be, it must hold their history.

You may need to do a research by yourself, but there are some points you can add into your notes, before building your dream home. Here you go.

Needs

The difference between wants and needs are so subtle, but a medley of both may create such a home where your heart is unable to leave. Part them into two sections; needs as the main thing and wants as your wishlist. Now, give an answer to this question; what is the main thing of every room in your house? They are the ones that you need the most. After this, turn your wishlist into reality; button down the decorations you would love to stay in a specific space of your house.

Budget Wise

A budget plan will determine whether the news you get is good or otherwise. It can either add or subtract your set list of wants and needs. But, the wiser you plot the budget, the more you can decide which one you really have to spend a fortune and save your savings. Don’t you feel much wiser after you read this paragraph?

Pick a Call

Is there any unanswered thought? Schedule a meeting with your trusted Interior Design Consultant, it most probably us, isn’t it? IOOR Studio, as always, loves to decipher what you have been dreaming about your space. We embrace your stories and so excited to help you paint them across every corner of your home. We are also an expert in psychological color, therefore show us your true shades, we will sketch every single room with your color scheme.

Wish all the words above can help you to build your dream home, not only walls without dreams, rooms without laughter, and windows without adventures. And may your home become just like a port in a storm, a place to rest after a very long day.

Pick One: Contractor or Handyman

Choosing between two things is never easy, a little research sometimes is necessary to hatch a good verdict. In building or renovating your space, you need to decide what kind of hands that will help you, except you are a contractor yourself. If you aren’t one, there will be two options for you, betwixt are a handyman and a contractor.

 

Hiring a contractor is definitely not cheaper than asking a neighbor handyman, but to become a wiser you, you have to consider another aspect besides the cost. Although a handyman may also be a smart choice if your space isn’t any larger than 20m2. We know that you’re still contemplating about what to choose, so below we’ll give you more thoughts to ponder by yourself.

Special Service

A contractor will give you many options about the material you need, including the price and the specification detail. You don’t have to go outside, because he will buy everything you need. Vice versa, a handyman doesn’t buy things for you, you can choose all you want and as you please.

Time Plan

For you who love to be on time, hiring a contractor may be the only choice. A contractor will set a time plan, you don’t have to be stressed over the handyman who sometimes likes to procrastinate his work. And the thing is a contractor will pay a penalty cost if the renovation is done beyond the deadline, he is a professional.

Responsibility

A handyman can build anything through rough sketches, but when something goes wrong, there is no paperwork that can hold him responsible. While a contractor builds something according to a shop drawing we made, which includes the ceiling, wall, floor, and electrical stuffs. From the shop drawing itself, he will know exactly all the material we need.

 

Done meditating on the three points above? Now you can see oh-how-different the way they do their jobs. None of them are a really bad option, but you know so well why you have to pay a higher price to a contractor. Hiring a handyman is absolutely better for your savings, but mostly there will be an extra cost you have to spend. As for the contractor, you also have to choose the right one, because each of them have their own preference, either a residence or a commercial space.

How to Marry Those Pinterest Interior Looks with Your Own Space

Imagine your room as a book, it owns stories and you are the main author. Page by page, you want to make it wonderful as you only live once. But becoming the solo content creator is not an easy-peasy thing to do. It is miles away from how effortless you mix-match your weekend outfits.

If you were inspired by some fashion bloggers to wear denim jacket outside your white dress or the ‘nowadays’ monochromatic look, you’re also able to find endless ideas from Pinterest for either the interior concept of your apartment or studio. Various genres that match your styles are just as far as a typing on your phone.

However, it can’t be done just by a flick of your fingers. It’s gonna take a lot of time and maybe a tight budget setting, note that you still need to hire an Interior Designer, to transform your ideas into reality. Scroll down some steps that thoughtfully told by our very own designer, Nydia Orlatta, to create the concept you like;

KEYWORDS

A story needs a theme. First thing first, pick two or three keywords that represent ambience you want, it might be warm-sophisticated-neat, masculine-clean-cool, or anything, you name it.

COLOR SCHEME

Second, you need to choose 2 colors and 1 neutral color as the balancer. If you have any portrait you like, you can also simply select the colors from it.

LOOSE FURNITURE

We have our own favorite furniture stores, it might be IKEA, JYSK, or anything, you make the call. Buy all the practical furniture you need and put in mind the two steps above as considerations. Remember that it doesn’t include your wardrobe or kitchen set, both should be measured to fit in your place well.

DECORATIONS

Finding the right one doesn’t just apply to your other half, it goes the same with decorations inside your room. You don’t want a shocking pink glittery table runner leans on your Rustic table, or a rainbow unicorn cushion awkwardly sitting on the Vintage sofa you have.
