What do music and architecture have in common? More than you might originally think; mathematics is a foundation for both artistic mediums. When you hear a perfectly composed piece of music, it takes you on a mental/emotional journey based on relationships between rhythm and sound. A well designed space will give you the same sense of reverence and awe. This is because your intrinsic sense of rhythm and balance resonates with thoughtful and balanced architectural design.
With that in mind, Houzz.com offers ways you can Tune into the Music of Architecture in your own home design by implementing musical themes expressed by Music Vocabulary 101.
Adagio. Play slowly and with ease. Rooms with an adagio feel will cause one to relax, unwind, and stay a while. Soft colors, the absence of clutter, and comfortable furniture are the key.
Dolce. Play sweetly, with a light touch. A space with a dolce-inspired design will incorporate thoughtful craftsmanship which utilizes playful geometrical lines/angles and/or a whimsical flair.
Legato. Each note should flow into the next without separation. Today’s open concept designs require an interior designer with a legato touch. Each room should have components which connect individual rooms together.
