″This work will deal with domestic interior design in single family dwellings….The psychology of interior design is divided into four sections. The first, visual effects, deal with sense of sight: this is the best understood aspect of interior design, as colour and light appeal directly to the emotions. This section deals with the use of colour, light and texture to create, or improve a desired interior environment. The second section, on environmental effects, deals with heat and sound, and how these may effect comfort in an interior. The third section deals with space and the effects which special arrangement have upon occupants. The final section examines the individual rooms in the house and analyses the characteristics specific to the particular function of the room.” (From introduction)
