It has been proven that the interior of the place we live in influences our mood and inner state. Luckily, the time when the home interior was grounded on practicability and utility is in the dim and distant past, and a personal and a psychological aspects are at the forefront today. An apartment or a private house is gradually turning from the space we live in into the place that reflects our inner world. The style is based on the two major factors - comfort and harmony. The psychological approach to the home interior includes two major functions.

Yet, one can learn and use the key aspects of personal approach to house arrangement on their own. The interior design begins with space planning, creating a certain inner space structure. Psychologists consider such structuring to be of paramount importance. It sets the rhythm of life in a house and often imposes specific types of relationships in a house: between house dwellers and between house dwellers and their guests.
