• A.

Liven up a large area

• B.

Add height to a short room

• C.

• A.

True

• B.

A. True
Explanation
Colours have a significant impact on how we perceive and interpret patterns. Different colors can create contrast, highlight certain elements, or blend together to form cohesive patterns.

### Large objects look smaller when placed in a large space.

• A.

True

• B.

False

A. True
Explanation
This statement is true because of the concept of relative size. When a large object is placed in a large space, it appears smaller in comparison to its surroundings. This is because the size of an object is perceived in relation to the size of its surroundings. So, when there is a larger space, the object's size appears relatively smaller.

### Which of the following can a room seem without a focal point? (Select 2)

• A.

Confusing

• B.

Exciting

• C.

Disorganised

• D.

Tidy

A. Confusing
C. Disorganised
Explanation
A room can seem confusing without a focal point because without a central point of interest, the eye may not know where to focus, resulting in a disorienting and perplexing experience. Additionally, a room can appear disorganized without a focal point because a focal point helps to anchor and structure the space, providing a sense of order and coherence.

### What is the outline of an object that defines the boundaries of positive and negative space?

• A.

Form

• B.

Function

• C.

Faces

A. Form
Explanation
Form refers to the overall shape and structure of an object. In the context of this question, the outline of an object that defines the boundaries of positive and negative space is referring to the form of the object. The form of an object helps to distinguish between the object itself and the space surrounding it. It is the physical manifestation of the object and provides a clear visual representation of its boundaries. Therefore, form is the correct answer in this case.

### Complex patterns are nearly always suitable for a small room.

• A.

True

• B.

False

B. False
Explanation
Complex patterns are not always suitable for a small room. Small rooms tend to have limited space, and complex patterns can make the space feel crowded and overwhelming. Simple and minimalistic patterns are often a better choice for small rooms as they create a sense of openness and make the room appear larger.

### In general, what do horizontal lines add to an area?

• A.

Height

• B.

Space and width

Explanation
Horizontal lines add a sense of space and width to an area. They create a visual illusion of expanding the area, making it appear larger and more open. These lines can be used to divide or separate different elements within the space, giving a sense of balance and organization. Additionally, horizontal lines can create a calming and stable effect, making the area feel more grounded and harmonious.

### Texture has no effect on colour.

• A.

True

• B.

False

B. False
Explanation
Texture does have an effect on color. Texture refers to the surface quality of an object, such as whether it is smooth or rough. Different textures can interact with light in different ways, affecting how we perceive the color of an object. For example, a smooth surface may reflect light differently than a rough surface, causing variations in color perception. Therefore, the statement that texture has no effect on color is false.

### Scale refers to the proportion or size of a piece of furniture as it relates to a room.

• A.

True

• B.

False

A. True
Explanation
The statement is true because scale in furniture refers to how the size of the furniture piece relates to the size of the room it is placed in. It is important to consider scale when choosing furniture to ensure that it fits well in the space and maintains a balanced and visually pleasing aesthetic.
