I encourage students of Interior Design to find your own unique path.
Don’t follow trends & magazines.
Don’t depend on the computer to do everything for you.
Do try to see how your interests outside of design can help you be more original in your thought process.
I hope that makes sense…For example I love history, science, philosophy & music.
Rather than the latest issue of House Beautiful, I would rather have an old dusty book in my hands on some interesting subject.
What your interested in or not interested in will reflect in your work.
Here is a project with some more hand drafting & rendering. It was intended to be a rental hall but I envisioned it more as a music hall.
During this project J & I were listening to a lot of Longwave.
I loved designing original furniture pieces for my projects, such as this barstool.
Inglenook with a plaque featuring musical lyrics…My design was heavily influenced by the Arts & Crafts movement.
Stained glass doors
Rich & warm wood tones
Unfortunately, I never clearly portrayed the repurposed piano light fixture which was actually intended to be quite a focal point.
Students of design, don’t make that mistake! If you have to, keep a checklist close at hand of the pivotal elements of your design that must be clearly defined & illustrated.
Have a wonderful day,
