Throughout the process of showing clients houses, the agent discusses not many things about the property itself. Because the agent must be aware of the neighborhood the property is in, they often use their knowledge of the landscape to further convince clients as to why they should make the investment. Some main points discussed are, distance from the nearest shopping, size of the rooms, and various features of the house. Such things as, the fireplace, pools, the size of the garage and even the gardens are discussed when overviewing the
The Provence up-cycled chair, Skeletal Wall clock and Persian rug are a wonderful step back into the Victorian era, making a vital connection to the original house. The curves of these items plus the Victorian techniques of bending wood with the use of steam were an inspiration for the contemporary furniture and lighting. These items include the Cork side tables, X coffee table, C12 Chair, Loungers and Stem lighting by Tom Raffield. These shapes form a visual echo, helping the eclectic space to gel by finding common ground within the shapes. The space draws energy from the contrasting textures of the re-cycled plastic bottle Nova ceiling light, textile Wall Hanging, smooth Knot Forgotten vases, wool Blanket and the metal hubcap Husky Pup sculpture. The scheme falls in place by incorporating natural colours such as the ‘nature’ inspired artwork and the soft relaxed colours of Palladium Blue paint on the west facing wall in contrast to the timeless warm greige colour of Willow Creek on the North facing wall. Whilst the long east-facing wall remains exposed brick, as this will help to reduce the use of raw materials such as water, waste and packaging used to add finishes such as plaster and paint. In addition, the high thermal mass of the exposed brick will help to store natural energy absorbed by the sun and release it over time, helping to reduce the use of

Regarding the BRFSS data and websites, I picked to view the data about Iowan’s exercise under the category of physical activity. The latest year they have data for is 2014. The way that BRFSS collects their data is a “telephone survey that provides ongoing data on major behavioral risk factors among American adults, with an emphasis on state-level surveillance. Currently data are collected monthly in all 50 states, the District of Columbia, American Samoa, Palau, Puerto Rico, the US Virgin Islands, and Guam.”("Surveillance Systems | Physical Activity | CDC", 2016) BRFSS call people every month and record data from a certain survey they give.
A popular, dominating style of home in Colonial America was the “Georgian” which can be traced to the prime of Europe, the Italian Renaissance. Georgian homes as presented lay on a raised foundation and are held by multiple pilasters, which happen to be equally distributed, for another characteristic of these early homes is symmetry. When the line of symmetry is drawn or imagined, the two halves appear identical. From even further than the ground up, from the foundation above, both houses have pillars, pilasters, windows, wood, glass, chimneys and so on of uniform size and style. Even the entablature that lies above the windows and columns appear to have no variation. Within this symmetrical design, there is stability, a decrease in the possibility that the house may cave in; rather than asymmetry, which has a higher likelihood of collapse.
In property management a manager’s success and reputation is built around their complex, their vacancy and occupancy rate and their customer service. Realistically, however, the prizes and recognition come to those who have a high occupancy rate and continuously maintain a low vacancy. The prices are determined on what the market is showing at the time.
With the belief that each home should reflect the owner’s personality, she invests the time needed to get to know design goals, the use of each room, and colors and textures that appeal to the client. She approaches each project as a unique puzzle that, once assembled, will tell a story.
As Australian architects were often inspired by international designs many houses were decorative thus there was the emergence of the Californian Bungalow within the 1920s. This housing structure began during the “early nineteen-twenties which became a leading fashion” (Boyd, 1962, p.70). Due to the fact that Australian designs were not as independent as it is today the Californian Bungalow was mainly influenced from the American Californian Bungalows. The bungalows in Australia was an approved style for a suburban house as a result of its simplistic building methods such as staining timbers, creating a pale plaster surface and applying decorative textures on plywood (Cuffley, 2007). Hence, the bungalows was a start of a new way of living for

The Traditional Chinese houses have many differences in comparison with the North American houses. The building materials used in construction is the most distinct difference from North American’s. A typical Chinese farmhouse is built of sun-dried bricks or pounded earth, because wood is too expensive and scarce to use. On the other hand, many typical Northern American houses are built of wood. In addition to the variations of building materials used in constriction, the architectural planning of a traditional Chinese houses is also unique. A traditional Chinese house is built according to the “Court-yard System'; where by houses are built around a courtyard which is invisible to the outside. Windows are covered by a thin oiled paper which is also invisible in order to protect robbery and keep privacy. Nowadays, the traditional housing system seldom appears in Hong Kong because it is too expensive and may cost millions of dollars. Moreover, the housing in Hong Kong is usually apartments and skyscrapers which is different from the ancient China.
Interior design and architecture are essential, and often overlooked, aspects of everyday life. In modern society people rely on function, durability, and visual appeal when selecting designs for their homes, businesses, and places of leisure. The way that a space is designed influences such things as mood, which, in the case of a business, can impact the productivity of employees and either draw or repel customers. In residential design, the design becomes very personal and, to be considered a successful design, must properly reflect the home owner while at the same time offering some practicality that makes the space livable. An effective design, for any space, must solve some problem, be it function, flexibility, or some other criteria. Simply solving a problem would not please the customer, however, unless it offered some visual appeal. Creating function with style is the real job of any interior designer, and is essential in a content society.
