About This Book

The gold standard for entry-level interior design education, now published by Wiley

In this Eleventh Edition of Beginnings of Interior Environments, accomplished interior designer and professor Lynn M. Jones delivers a balanced and comprehensive overview of commercial and residential interior design. Written to offer coverage of the creative and technical characteristics of the profession, the text also addresses Council for Interior Design Accreditation (CIDA) content.

The book presents topics on the scope of the profession, spatial development, and visual literacy while also reviewing the factors of quality aesthetics. Hundreds of images from actual design projects, supplied by national and international design firms, illustrate the design process. "Design Scenarios, " or case studies, demonstrate examples of professional practice and in-house production work students are likely to encounter during their career.

The text discusses issues of global importance, from sustainability to universal design; a pictorial essay reviews the history of style. Readers will also enjoy:

  • An introduction to interior environments, including the fundamentals of interior design and the health, safety, and welfare benefits of interior design
  • An exploration of design fundamentals, including the elements and principles of design, with a special emphasis on color
  • Practical discussions on building construction, including construction components and codes, as well as lighting, electrical, and communication systems
  • An entire section dedicated to interior finishes—upholstery, wallcoverings, and floorings—and furnishings—furniture, art, and accessories
  • In-depth examinations of the profession of interior design, including career opportunities

Beginnings of Interior Environments is perfect for students in an introductory interior design course, and an indispensable resource for anyone seeking a balanced interior design perspective for their home or office.
