PRINCIPLES OF DESIGN…

The designer works with the 4 tools or elements of design: line, form, color, and texture. But now they must follow the “RULES” about using those tools. The rules are called the principles of design.

There are 5 principles of design:

rhythm
Rhythm
  • Rhythm is defined as continuous, recurrent, or organized movement.
  • It allows for underlying unity and variety in a design.
  • We can create rhythm in 5 different ways…
rhythm by repetition

Rhythm by Repetition…

  • Can be achieved through…
    • Repeated lines, shapes and forms, colors, textures, or patterns.
rhythm by gradation

Rhythm by Gradation…

Completed by increasing or decreasing one or more qualities, such as height or width or overall size.

rhythm by transition

Rhythm by Transition…

Often subtle.

Leads the eye in a gentle, continuous, uninterrupted visual flow from one area to another or object to another. Arches are much smoother, less abrupt, than doorways with square corners.

Curved lines are a sign of transition.

rhythm by opposition

Rhythm by Opposition…

The direct placement of lines, forms, or colors to create

opposition by an abrupt change.

Ornate objects placed in simple backgrounds

Old versus new

Complementary colors next to each other

Intersecting lines

Square corners

rhythm by radiation

Rhythm by Radiation…

All parts of a composition are balanced and repeated around a

central axis.

Petals of a daisy

Chairs around a table

Circular objects such as plates, bowls, light fixtures, textile patterns, hanging plants and chandeliers

Not used as frequently as other types.

Rhythm
  • The key to rhythm is continuity….
    • The organized movement of recurring or developing patterns into a connected whole.
    • It’s all about the movement of your eyes on an object or around a room!

Rhythm Project Assignment...
  • Using magazines or catalogs, find pictures of objects or other components of interior design to illustrate the 5 different types of rhythm.
  • Select sheets of paper, white or colored, for this assignment. Also select paper in a color appropriate for picture mats. The pages should all be the same color.
  • For each page, you may use a computer to add a title, your name, and a description of the type of rhythm and the source of rhythm in each picture (ex: transition on sofa).
  • The title should include the word “rhythm”.
  • Mat and mount the pictures on the paper. You may have more than one picture on a sheet of paper if desired, but no more than 3 pictures per sheet.

Types of RHYTHM in Design by Your Name

Transition can be found in components of interior design that have curved lines, such as in this sofa.
