Interior Architecture and Design

The internationally recognized interior architecture and design bachelor’s program provides a high-quality, individualized professional education that is responsive to current and projected modes of professional practice. The professional development of the students is further enhanced by the program’s unique relationship to the extraordinary industrial and artistic development of the city of Las Vegas, which provides opportunities to engage in innovative and creative design projects. Our graduates are well prepared to pursue advanced studies or to make a seamless transition into the profession and advance to positions of increased responsibility and achievement of professional licensure.

Many of the increasingly complex needs of a population diverse in age, abilities, and cultural backgrounds can be creatively addressed through innovative design. Graduates of the program successfully engage in the practice of providing professional interior architectural and design services in various contexts of residential, commercial, health care, and institutional design.


The Council for Interior Design Accreditation formally granted full accreditation status to the program under its 2014 professional standards. The Accreditation Commission’s decision was based on the interior design program’s demonstrated achievement of 16 accreditation standards, which are evaluated within the context and overarching purpose and intent of the program. CIDA accreditation standards broadly address the evolving components of the educational preparation for interior design practice, including:

  • Critical thinking, professional values, and processes that provide the framework of interior design practice.
  • Core design and technical knowledge that provide the historical, theoretical, and technical contents of interior design practice.

The accreditation report, citing numerous program strengths, stated: “The interior architecture and design program at the University of Nevada, Las Vegas is successful in delivering a professional-level education that prepares students for entry into the design profession. The energy and commitment of faculty and the support of the administration is strong.”

#spa interior design


Design for Leisure – Spa Design, Consultancy and Construction

Repairs and Remodelling

Ever aware of the need to effectively repair and remodel spa facilities, Design for Leisure can offer many solutions using the cutting edge products and technology being used to create the latest and greatest new spas around the globe.

We can cure leaking steam rooms, showers and pools often with the simple application of our waterproof lining systems manufactured by our partners Lux Elements. This can often be done using existing structures as long as they are still sound and overlaying existing tiled finishes, even if they are leaking or porous, because we fit a completely new waterproof skin to the structure, which is left ready to receive a new decorative tile or stone finish. We can dress to existing drains and in most cases, even doors can be preserved as long as they are not leaking as well.

Caring for the environment should be the responsibility of everyone, but saving energy has bi-products to the bottom line as well.

Intelligent Spas are the future, microprocessors can control every aspect of the modern thermal suite and the costs of technology are becoming ever more affordable and the benefits of investment easier to see and faster to harvest. Some of the ways a spa can benefit are outlined below:

  • Serviceable Steam Generators – all parts are serviceable or replaceable, no built in obsolescence of a cheap machine accepting it will have a life of only a few years, but buying equipment for the life of the spa is the way forward.
  • Serviceable equipment removes the disappointment of guests faced with Out of Order signs, as routine, preventative maintenance ensures equipment runs and runs – even in hard water areas, calcification of steam equipment can be avoided, ensuring the equipment runs efficiently and cost effectively, where it just boils water, not heats rocks!
  • Control systems that are constantly monitoring temperature and adjusting equipment output accordingly are vital, especially for spas with peaks and troughs in usage patterns.
  • Control systems with remote displays or full integration into Building Management Systems are vital to energy efficiency.
  • Ice fountains that produce ice on demand, rather than just topping up a bowl, and letting it melt away throughout quiet periods not only save energy, but prolong the active life of the equipment.
  • Automatic essence dosing systems controlled by steam generators that only operate when steam is being produced, ensuring the perfect atmosphere for bathers, but saving on waste.
  • Sauna stoves and steam generators that have power factor adjustments ensuring they can be customised to the exact size of the cabin in which they are sited.
  • Construction systems with known and provable U/R values to ensure the heat stays in the cabin where it belongs and not heating up the rest of the building
  • Sauna conversions to fit underbench heaters to reduce damage by guests who have a heavy hand with the sauna bucket, not to mention being careless with towels on exposed stoves, or the benefits of maximising bather space, saving on real estate at the same time as enhancing the guest experience.
  • Our solutions can often be specified remotely and equipment and installation instructions supplied for fitting by local tradesmen or facilities departments


Equipment, Spares, Sales and Support

In our commitment to support our clients, we have stocking depots in Austin, Texas and Cancun, Mexico serving Continental North America, distribution points in the UK and Germany serving Europe and one in Dubai serving the GCC region.

We hold spare parts for our products and the consumable items that keep our products and their beneficial treatments operating at their optimum.

  • Essences for all thermal experiences
  • Essences
  • for Experiential Rain Showers

#scandinavian interior design


Home Decorating Trends Homedit

It s very easy to recognize a Scandinavian interior design. But there isn t just one Scandinavian style but several and they all have certain elements in common. For example, all Scandinavian interiors have wooden floors, most often light and they can be seen in all the rooms apart from the bathroom.

The color palette in Scandinavian decors is very light and simple and it usually includes shades of gray and blue as well as a lot of white. Sometimes bold touches of color can be seen here and there.

In general, all Scandinavian interiors feature clean lines throughout and this includes the architecture, the furniture and everything else. All such spaces are also always very functional. In terms of material, there s always a lot of wood in the décor. It s used on the walls, on the ceilings, on the floors and on the furniture. The wood adds warmth and texture to the room.

One of the things you often expect to see in a Scandinavian home is one of those traditional fireplaces placed in the corner of a room. The fireplace is not the focal point of the décor in the room and they have simple designs and shapes. In fact, Scandinavian decors are minimalist throughout and they usually lack accessories and purely decorative details.

#interior design quotes


Here is a little weekend inspiration! Enjoy.

“The essence of interior design will always be about people and how they live. It is about the realities of what makes for an attractive, civilized, meaningful environment, not about fashion or what’s in or what’s out. This is not an easy job.” – Albert Hadley

We shape our homes , and then our homes shape us. Winston Churchill

Dining room at Chartwell

“I believe in doing the thing you feel is right. If it looks right, it is right.” – Interior designer Dorothy Draper

Buy the best, and you only cry once.Interior designer Miles Redd

Luxury must be comfortable, otherwise it is not luxury. Coco Chanel

Coco Chanel’s Paris Apartment

The difference between good design and great design is intelligence. — Graphic Designer Tibor Kalman

Minimalist rooms can be so beautiful, but I can t live in one; I love objects too much. Interior designer Bunny Williams

When it comes to art, buy with your eyes, not your ears. I tried very hard not to decorate with art. Art should be reflective of your personality and what s going on in your head not reflective of the colors of a sofa. Hotelier Jason Pomeranc

Apartment of Jason Pomeranc, decorated by Steven Sclaroff.

I must have books everywhere. They re the soul of a room they reveal the taste, the interests, and the secrets of whoever lives there. Fashion designer Diane von Furstenberg

a house is much more than a mere shelter, it should lift us emotionally and spiritually. – Interior designer John Saladino

#interior design quotes


Introduction to Line in Interior Design

Horizontal Lines. Weighty, secure, restful, stabilizing.

Horizontal lines suggest a solid, harmonious relationship with the Earth; this gives a stabilizing, peaceful harmonious effect to window treatments for example. When found in a connecting architectural detail such as mouldings, horizontal lines provide a smooth transition between rooms or areas. If they lead to a focal point, they help to emphasize it.

Too many horizontal lines in an interior may become boring and lack visual interest. Horizontal lines make a room appear wider or longer.

Vertical Lines. Lofty, solid, formal, imposing, restrained.

Vertical lines lift the eye upward and make windows, and sometimes, entire interiors, appear taller or higher. They have the ability to lift the mind and the spirit as well. As such, vertical lines are purposeful tools for architects and designers of churches and public buildings because they inspire awe and tend to diminish the significance of human scale. Vertical lines convey a feeling of strength and dignity and are quite appropriate in formal dining rooms, entryways and formal living areas, as well as offices and public meeting and performing spaces. However, this formality can bring stiffness or a commanding feeling to the interior. Too many vertical lines can cause a feeling of uneasiness and too much confinement.

Diagonal Lines. Action, movement, interest, angular stability.

Diagonal lines are flexible because their exact direction may vary from shallow to steep angles. Diagonal lines generally suggest movement, action or dynamism, perhaps because diagonal lines are associated with going places up or down a staircase or escalator, the taking off or landing of an airplane, for example. Interest is usually sustained longer with diagonal lines than with horizontal or vertical lines, possibly because the angles seem to defy gravity and the eye and mind are stimulated. Yet diagonal lines also can be secure, such as the reinforcing diagonals of a roof truss system.
Too many diagonal lines can be over stimulating and compete with horizontal or vertical lines.

Zigzag Lines. Exciting, lively, rhythmic movement.

Zigzag lines are short diagonal lines that reverse upon themselves and form a regular or irregular pattern. A zigzag line can be one single line or several in a set. A set of regular zigzag lines is called a chevron or herringbone pattern, and irregular zigzag lines are typically called a flamestitch pattern. Angular zigzag lines can add energy and life to an interior. If too many zigzag lines are incorporated, however, the effect can be frenzied and agitating.

Curved or Circular Lines. Soft, humanizing, repetitive tempo, gracefulness.

Curved or circular lines provide relief and softness to straight and angular lines and balance the harshness of too many straight lines. Curved lines give a human quality to interiors; they can be easy on the eyes and pleasing to view. A series of curved lines, such as an arcade (a procession of arches), gives a rhythmic cadence to an interior, suggesting graceful movement. In architectural components, round or elliptical segments (sections of circles or ovals), such as archways and arched transoms or fanlights, provide graceful dignity to interiors. Generously curved lines are viewed as feminine. An excess of curved lines may become too decorative and consequently, a little overpowering.

Flowing Lines. Gentle movement, growth, linear development.

Flowing lines are irregularly curved lines that move gently in a random or spiralling manner. Flowing lines may be seen in large interior trees or climbing vines, in spiral or curved staircases, or in the lines of fine Oriental rugs, for example. Inspiration may be taken from the graceful and curved forms of growing and changing live plant forms. As we are never certain where the line will end, flowing lines can provide a great deal of interest.

Tightly Curved or Busy Lines. Playful activity, zest, lively visual stimulation.

Tightly curved or busy lines are most often seen in textiles and in wall and floor coverings as complicated patterns that are lively, busy or active. Tightly curved lines can add frivolity and fun to interiors. Complicated tightly curved compositions, such as those in vivid floral fabric, in area rugs or wall coverings, add life and may be visually stimulating and aesthetically satisfying. As such, busy lines may save interiors from becoming dull or boring, yet control over the quality of the design is imperative. Colours and contrasts that are bold or feature too much obvious pattern might prove displeasing and detract from the harmony of the interior.


Every interior uses lines in combination, yet often one line will be planned to dominate in order to accomplish a desired effect. Vertical and horizontal lines form the structural or architectural foundation for a building.

Angular and curved lines are used for interest, movement, relief and to humanize an interior space.
