Seconds in Interior Design: A Memoir or Despair

Seconds in Interior Design: A Memoir or Despair

An hour is just another term for 60 minutes, and if you multiply it by 24, it is called a day. Time is a blurred concept, and every minute that is passed instantly becomes a past. By the twaddle-babble above, we all get the juice that seconds are an essential substance. We are the author of either a memoir or despair as we prescribe our stories.

In interior design, time isn’t just a word with four different alphabets, but it’s a significant entity of what we, IOOR Studio, pour our hearts into. We dearly know that “good things take time”, we can’t hasten summer’s start or force the sun to set before its time. Either interpreting your brand identity into interior design concept or technically drawing the whole idea, thoughtfully doing both is what we always do.

“Then how long does a project ideally take place?”, couples of eyes start questioning. Some might guess “2 months!”, while others assume that 3 months is more than enough. But, the main thing is the process itself, isn’t it? Fast food is indeed a guilty pleasure, but it’s never a healthier option than a rosemary grilled salmon.

Talking about the process, every project has its own time plan, which the m2 factor is the stellar determinant here, it all depends on how spacious the space is. Who doesn’t want to have a flash finish in doing an assignment? We’d so love to do it that way, yet we prefer to go through every single step thoroughly, which is making the best out of the design itself for our clients.

To make it a crystal clear, now let us paint the framework on the plate of your mind so that you get the idea of how much time that you have to prepare beforehand.

Decipher

We want to even up your version of blue and ours, how yellow is your yellow and also the kind of your modern-minimalism. Schedule an initial meeting at least twice with you is the first thing, so that we can comprehend what is in your mind, because this is your own story and we want to draw it in the same page as yours. Once we decipher what is in your head,  future meetings will be less complicated.

Interpret

Thereafter, we do what is called brainstorm with our team. This is when we translate our client’s brand identity into a design concept, which includes furniture layout, 3D drawings, and the other small details. Marry your identity with the space is what we are passionate about.

Make It Happen

The last step can’t be done with only a “voila” spell, we do a site visit to see if everything is built as what our drawings say.  “Everything” means everything, ceiling plan, floor plan, electricity plan, elevation, furniture and decorations.

Trust and chemistry are the keywords to create a great memoir in this story. As your interior consultant, we do every step in a period of time that we set as what it actually needs, to maximize the outcome. As you believe that the best is the only thing we do, both of us can write an exceptional story in the same page. Maybe you can call us 3-4 months before the due date.

Panbakers 2: A Passion that is Everlasting

The first chapter of a book is a determinant whether the reader will turn the page or not. A rhetoric narrative that creates a stop motion in their mind, through words in each passage that is written by the author himself. But, a yes or no option to continue reading isn’t at the hands of the writer, but they who have read every paragraph of the story.

As well as the premiere episode of Panbakers in Pettarani Street, Makassar, that is marked as so called best Western restaurant in the city. It has not only good food, but an identity that is not a mismatch. Spending hours there might be an unforgettable tale as it has a warm atmosphere for your ritual family dinner, or just a casual lunch with your friends.

The second chapter begins as it has gained so much popularity. It is unveiled at the heart of Makassar, Latimojong Street, with an ever better performance. They enhance both the entrée and the place. And as edible material is not our forte, we’ll tell you the synopsis of its design concept that is sophisticatedly created by IOOR Studio.

Rustic is the genre of this piece, and it also befriends luxury and modern vintage style. The ambiance that we want to create at first was warm, charismatic, and unique. Oh how does luxury match the warm feelings? Well, visiting this place might be the only answer to the enigma.

Detail is a six-alphabet-with-three-vocal-letters word, which is dear for us. Every corner of the space is thoughtfully sketched, and brushed with royal blue, gold, and grey hues. From decoration, furniture, to plans such as; ceiling, flooring, wall and electricity, none is left out.

As it is in the pictures above; medieval pattern on the wall and furniture which are plated by brass, exposed concrete cement flooring that accentuates the Rustic feels, unending assortment of decorations, and a variety of tables which are well-manufactured by The Toop Table, the sister company of IOOR Studio. They unravel the word d e t a i l thoroughly in Panbakers.

Symbolic accent of Edelweiss flower is also applied to show the purity, infinity, and adventure of Panbakers itself. It shows how Panbakers strives the best service for customers. You can find it on the flooring plan that is coated by brass and the stairway to the second story of this place.

Panbakers is made by passion, and whatever that is caused by it, is everlasting. Because when you do something from the deepest of your soul, it’s only a matter of time for people to recognize and taste the sweetness out of it. Savor every moment you spend in Panbakers with your dear friends, eat a hearty meal, and go home with a merry and contented heart.

Interpret Your Identity into Interior Design

Have you ever spotted something that is out of order? Something like seeing a red stripes turtleneck shirt tops purple polka dot culottes. It’s a little exaggerating, isn’t it? How about painting your face a heavy party make up to attend a birthday party of your friend’s toddler? Uh huh, it is called a mismatch.

When it comes to the interior design of a commercial space, the concept has to be based upon the brand image. It is like an offbeat music if an oriental decoration is hanged on an Indonesian restaurant’s wall. We, IOOR Studio, see that clearly as a problem, a puzzle to be solved.

A fine kismet on our side, our very own Creative Director, Nydia Orlatta, is now taking her master degree, learning about brand image. It’s not a wishful thinking for us to help you interpret your brand identity into an exceptional interior design.

First thing first

Logo, yes these very four alphabets are the representatives of your identity. You need one before starting the next complicated steps. You do your hair and brush your cheeks depends on the outfit you wear, don’t you? Logo will help you to prescribe the atmosphere, shapes of the furniture, and color scheme of your space.

 

Next complicated steps

You’ve already got the color pallete from the logo, now you gotta learn about psychological color. It sounds cliché, but it’s a real thing. Black does really mean mysterious, navy is more like elegant, and green speaks about natural ambience. Once the color scheme is ordained, you can choose what kind of material that is able to bring the best out of the colors.

Last sure thing

You might need to splurge in this last step, hire the best interior design consultant that understands how to translate your brand image into the whole interior design concept, so that your space doesn’t end up as a mismatch. As for IOOR Studio, it’s a sure thing that we’re not only able to do it, but are also passionate in this field.

We had done our part as the supporting role to tell you how, now it’s you, the leading role, to act out loud the dialogue of your brand journey. Let the world grasp the story of every color, shape and material that telltales your brand identity. A misfit is the worst thing that can ever happen to a commercial space.

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.

11

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.

Case Study: How to Cast a Spell and Voila the Bedroom You’ve Been Dreaming Of

Bedroom. Once you read this single word, what’s the first thing that’s popping inside your head? Sleeping, wondering, day dreaming? Those three things may be what some people like the most, and the others may just prefer to take a rest as it is their favorite sanctuary. Nope, do not mention studying all night for tomorrow exam, don’t.

Each one of us has a story to tell, either about life or just ourselves. Sometimes we just don’t know how to make people listen or have no platform to do so. But aren’t those kind of stories limited just for your loved ones? Not everyone will understand, even if they had already tried to hear us out. Why don’t you pour those tales throughout your bedroom?

1

As you read the title, this is not that boring case study from the other world named college or office, but this may be what you’ve been asking for your whole life. We want our bedroom to be the best space that ever existed in this universe. We want our kind of bedroom, the one that our souls long to every time we have to go through the stressful night traffic. The question is: How?

Well, scroll down to see the best answers that our designer can present to you.

First, write down how big your bedroom is and the budget that you want to spend, because your idealism has to match those issues. If you have endless cash in your bank account, you may prefer to contact us, an interior design consultancy, but if you don’t, it’s not much a problem to do it by yourself.

2

Where to splurge and to save? Spend most of your shekels in comfort, go buy the best pillow and bed. At the end of the day, sleeping is the main thing, where you fall asleep with a dream and wake up with a purpose. You don’t want an unnecessary backache for you to seize the day.

Meanwhile for decorations, you can do both save and splurge. Don’t buy the one that’s only eye-pleasing, but something that depictures yourself, your passion and dreams. Either you are a writer, a singer, a designer, or an office-worker, name it. Place an A to Z about you to remind yourself that dreams may be just a step away from where you stand. For wardrobe, table, couch, just buy something that suits the room well, don’t spend a fortune for those stuffs.

3

If it turns out that you will do it your own, start small. Note that “one step at a time” is the one thing that you should do. Simply pinterest the idea, buy one furniture and decoration at a time. No need to rush, you still catch some shuteye every night in the same room anyway.

Have a good sleep, wanderer!
