Five senses - Sensory designer room
The senses of touch, taste, smell, sight and hearing are stimulated in many ways by bringing a variety of design elements into an interior, but the sense that is most enhanced by this, is the sixth sense of intuition… of how a space makes you feel.
Amanda Neill from Designworx believes that interior design shouldn't be limited to what you can see or sit on, otherwise the experience of a space would be very limited. At the Auckland Home Show she designed a room that engaged all of the senses, but not always in the traditional sense of the word.
Based loosely on a spa direction, design elements such as the texture of the rug stimulated the sense of touch, or the feature wall that emulated nature to play on the sympathetic nervous system and induce feelings of relaxation. Included in the room was a futuristic hanging fireplace, and a living vertical wall planted with Sphagnum Moss and Alyssum. Soft music and lighting completed the space creating a dreamlike ambience. The room was finished in Environmental Choice approved Resene Lumbersider tinted to Resene Planter (green olive) from The Range 2011/12 and Resene Albescent White (pale beige) from the Karen Walker collection.
The sensory designer room heightened the viewer’s experience, taking a room out of the ordinary into the extra-ordinary. Many at the show lingered for a long time simply soaking up the atmosphere.
