Black & White – Embrace It Don’t Fear It
Monochrome is a term that describes varying shades of one colour. It is not correct to describe a room that has been designed using a colour palette of black and white as Monochrome. Let’s summarise…
Finally! The Big Reveal
Without further ado, it gives me great pleasure to finally post snippets of my research work, the technical aspects of my work and the renders that I created in support of the various design concepts for this space.
Lifts Want To Be Inspirational Spaces Too!
In total there will be 2 design features within this space that will give a gentle nod to the heritage of the Lace Market; the lace Roman Blinds and the interior of the lift. Yes, you heard correctly; the interior of the lift. I like the unexpected.
So Many (Industrial) Chairs, So Little Time!
As we all know, I’m completely consumed with all things industrial at the minute. Industrial styling is an extremely contemporary, edgy and urban look that needs to be given careful consideration!
The Power of Accessorising
Following on from my last post about combining industrial styling with typical Georgian detailing, I have developed the Staff Breakout area further. I’ve added lighting in the form of LED downlighting but also traditional (turned) wooden lampstands.
Industrial Styling with a Georgian Twist
My design scheme for the Georgian Townhouse wasn’t going to incorporate a lot of typical Georgian design, but I changed my mind and decided to use a fabulous and innovative contemporary Damask wallcovering. Well, I’ve decided to explore the inclusion of Georgian elements further…
21st Century Damask
To recap; this is a (fictional) design company that embraces innovation, creativity and contemporary design. I previously stated that the Georgian influence within this design concept would start and end with the original staircase. I was wrong.
Stairs? Yea, They’re Lovely… Until You Have To Design Them
I’m a classic stair avoider. Always have been. I much prefer the lift, but the sight of a well constructed, visually pleasing and elegant staircase will always catch my eye.
Let’s Talk About Chippendale…
I’m not a fan of ‘traditional’ styling in general BUT (and this is a BIG ‘but’) I do respect traditional craftsmanship. This has surprised me somewhat. I always thought I was a modern and contemporary gal. But nope, I’ve been proven wrong.
The Georgian Era – Back By Popular Demand!
I’ve noticed (from having a nosy at my site stats) that a lot of people are using Google to search for the history of Georgian design. I already have a post relating to a Georgian colour scheme but my very first module while studying my interior design Diploma required me to look into the history of Georgian […]
For this historical colour scheme I have taken inspiration from the Georgian era and used a colour palette of powder blue, soft chalky white and an earthy stone colour.
