Amer Adnan served Chicago Land Area for more than fifteen years after which he came back to Pakistan in the year 2005. After returning to Pakistan, Mr. Adnan established AmerAdnan® Associates an interior design and architectural firm in Lahore. Adnan’s portfolio encompasses more than fifty residential as well as commercial projects in Pakistan as well as abroad.
September 16th 2014, Samaa TV, a well-known private satellite news channel in Pakistan invited Mr.Adnan for an exclusive interview in their morning show ‘Qutab Online’ by Syed Bilal Qutab. Adnan was asked to enlighten people about various principles and elements involved in interior designing and decoration. Below are the details about the interview:
Samaa TV: Does color scheme impact people’s moods, personalities and the environment around a house or a workplace?
AmerAdnan: Yes indeed. The color scheme of a home or a professional workplace puts great impact on the way its residents or workers behave and grow. This fact has even been proved and mentioned by a number of psychologists worldwide. Therefore a great attention must be paid towards choosing colors for walls, woodwork and furniture. This can be done best by hiring the services of a professional.
Samaa TV: We have seen a growing trend of using ceramic tiles instead of marble for flooring across Pakistan. Which one out of these, do you think is the best choice?
AmerAdnan: Well, it totally depends on what appeals people the most. However, I myself recommend using marble for flooring because it’s the most desired type of flooring worldwide. Furthermore, since marble is the natural resource of Pakistan, it is found at low pricing; hence can also be afforded by all.
Samaa TV: Which one would you recommend out of these: an overdesigned house or a simple one?
AmerAdnan: Simple one is better. This is what an interior designer is supposed to do. He would install lights intelligently and would minimize the furniture and other accessories.
Samaa TV: A person requires getting paint job done for his house. How can he afford paying a hundred thousand rupees to the interior designer? Do you think it is important for him to hire the services of an interior designer for paint job?
AmerAdnan: Yes it is very important to hire an interior designer for the paint job since the paint plays a key role in overall look of a house. Besides, it’s an investment that always pays back in due course.
Samaa TV: Bathroom ventilation issue is something found very common at homes across the world. What would you suggest in this regard?
AmerAdnan: I have seen a trend of placing smaller windows in the bathrooms which minimize the cross ventilation and cause difficulty for the residents. So I would recommend using large-size windows in bathrooms for avoiding any probable ventilation issues. Moreover, there should be a powerful exhaust placed in each bathroom to help vent the moisture and odor out.
Samaa TV: Please suggest something a housewife can do in terms of home interior designing that would help her bring an instant smile on her husband’s face as he comes home tired from work each day.
AmerAdnan: A housewife should cook Tasty Biryani or Chaamp to please her husband.
