Decorating is not an easy process, even for the most qualified experts. A great interior requires materials that are in line with the space’s architecture. It requires objects that reflect the owner’s character but also pieces that are timeless and scaled proportionally. It also needs to strike the right balance between traditional and modern. But above all, it requires a story—one that will dictate every design decision that needs to be made for the space. This is what the design duo of Masquespacio will explain us today. If you’re planning a home renovation, you’re reading the right article!

Home Renovation: The Story & Materials
A good interior is one that tells the story of its owners through time and space. In order to create an interior that’s both timeless and meets his clients’ needs, it’s crucial to start by getting the story right from the start.
Interior design is a deeply personal process, and one of the worst mistakes one can make when designing interiors is to be formulaic or trying to replicate something you’ve seen elsewhere.
That is why the design duo creates unique ambiances that always tell a different story: your story. A timeless interior starts with a unique storyline where every object works to support the same vision.
Where renovations are concerned, the design duo argues that it’s especially important to pick materials that will stand the test of time.
