Islamic art works as a platform to deliver the messages of the culture of Islam, which conveys the Islamic identity and values. One of the main features of Islamic art is the depth of meaning behind it, which may contribute to the person’s perception of for example spiritual aesthetic. Therefore, this paper discusses the meaning of spiritual aesthetic and its relation to Islamic art, as well as its utilisation in interior design, since interior design has the ability to connect with human behaviour through the interaction of the human and interior environment. A semiotics approach was selected due to its ability to go beyond the meaning, since this study intends to understand how users perceive the aesthetic of physical elements in the interior environment. In this context, this research aims to propose a design strategy that will enhance the spiritual aesthetic within Islamic patterns in interior design. This paper is based on reviewing the current literature as a part of the author’s PhD project.
