In this new weekly submitted article, we'll attempt to look at how certain visual attributes, make an image appealing to the eye. Sometimes using a certain design rule, or using simple attractiveness to something.
To start things off, we'll look at design, in particular, Interior Design, as I, like many others find this fascinating concept far more than just brick and plaster. Millions of Deviants from all over the world either design their own ' perfect world ' via Digital tools, such as 3D programs, or Photoshop, or alternatively, capture the beauty that is Interior Design with their Cameras.
I've been following Interior design since I registered this account on deviantART back in '04, so it seemed a simple task to pull the best images from my Favourites to feature them here for your viewing pleasure!

In today's day and age S i m p l i c i t y is key, something I'm thankful for! A clean shape or movement within a design is more visually appealing than something that resembles a twisty. Have a look at the many examples here and you'll agree..
