A simple blue design

HETH120577_zoom

Today I’m heading off to Portsmouth and so I’ve based this mood board on a light and airy blue seaside-y feel. I started with the fabric from harlequin and the light, wooden furniture. This fabric is great for being able to tie in a range of different shades of blue within the accessories and lighting. Using the neutral furniture also means that the room is easily changed – simply just swap out the accessories with different colours.

Hopefully the weather in Portsmouth is as light and airy as this design…

The ‘Open Home’ collection has just been launched within a select stores and online at John Lewis. ‘Open Home’ is a new 13 piece collection of Furniture developed by Doshi Levien for John Lewis.

doshi-levien-pondok-chair-041016

The collection is ‘inspired by the elegance of Scandinavian modernism and mid-century Italian design.’ The sculptural furniture within the collection is designed to create a separate space within an ‘Open Home’. For example The Pondok Sofa above has high arms and back acting as a divider between it and the space around it.

These are the two armchairs within the collection. The one on the left, Nami High Back Armchair, follows the same guidelines of a sculptural piece as the Pondok Sofa. The Mudra Low Back Armchair, on the right, is equally as wide but with a low back and a ercol/Scandinavian feel to it.

Stepping away from seating this collection also has coffee, console and side tables, a lamp and a rug. The lamp seen above is the Falcon LED Table Lamp the lamp is blocky and uses contrasting colours to create a contemporary piece. The Ballet console table has tall legs that create a simple structure that holds the tabletop. ‘Designed to suggest a sense of light-footedness, it is a characterful contemporary take on a traditional typology.’ (John Lewis website). Finally, this is the Phulkari Rug made in India with a Soumak crafted technique. Its intricate colourful geometric chevrons and stripes are the perfect accompaniment to the curves of the furniture.

A living room design with John Lewis products

2

This design was made in answer to a made up brief for John Lewis. The brief outlined the size of the room and the wants and needs of the clients. Here is the brief in short; warm tones, show off the victorian oak floorboards, to include an office area, spaces to display photographic work, be able to be used by all five family members and a stylish design. Above is the initial mood board of spaces, products and colour combinations

After finding existing images that I thought related to the space and the clients brief I then grouped a collection of colours, patterns and materials for the space and looked at how they could work together.

Having chosen the colour scheme and taken a look at the materials and patterns available within John Lewis the next step was to look at the products  in the grey and yellow colours chosen and that will go within the space. The above two boards show the various products that would work and the options for accessories and furniture for the room.

These next two boards show the chosen furniture for the room. Starting to group them together and layer the materials and patterns on top of each other.

Having chosen the furniture the next step was putting them together within the context of the room. Creating these visuals with the use of Autocad and Photoshop. The above image and below three show the views of the different walls and placement of the furniture in relation to the space. These visuals also show the suggested arrangement of the photo frames on the walls.

The final below board shows some very simple 3d visuals of the room and an Autocad plan of the room. The time frame for this project was very short, if I had more time to work on this project these final visuals would be more detailed and engaging rather than the blocky simple images they currently are.

We really enjoyed working on this project and hope you like what we designed!
