You’ve heard the expression “an eye for design.” While it’s true that some people are born with it, there is more to design than just being able to apply a certain aesthetic flair. Design is as much a science as it is an art form. Which is why the basics of good design can be broken down into seven principles and five elements.
Design elements are the building blocks of creating a space, while design principles are the tools which are applied to refine and fine-tune a space. Understanding and employing them appropriately is not the whole story. However, it is undoubtedly the foundation upon which all good design is built on.

Linger’s Design Philosophy
A lot to take in, isn’t it? Take a moment, have another sip of coffee (or wine) and let it all sink in. That is a small taste of what makes design work. What else is there, you may ask? This, my friend, is where we bring our expertise.
At Linger, we see design as more than the sum of its parts. Ticking all the boxes for the principles and elements above will only give you paint by numbers results; there is more to it.
We believe that careful design tells a vivid and engaging story. And not just about how hard it was to match your ottoman to the art deco mirror. We believe in place-making: co-designing spaces which tell a story about you and your surroundings, your brand, where you have been, and where you’re going next in life.
So our goal? To create a space where you feel more like yourself than anywhere else. A space that reflects your personality in all its vibrancy, quirks and idiosyncrasies, and helps you relax and celebrate your relationships. In short, a space you’d never want to leave, one where you want to linger just a bit longer.
