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!

Copper for the home

Metallics in the home look perfect. The current trend is to swap out the cold, plain metals for warm and reflective coppers and rose golds. They can be used all around the house from a simple light in a bedroom to copper pans and storage in a kitchen.

We love pretty much everything that the Urban Outfitters home section has to offer. But we’ve narrowed it down to five that we really like. UO is pretty pricey but sometimes the sale gives you a good chance of getting some of their products into your home!

First is this Eyelash Fringe Duvet Cover. 

This soft cotton cozy bed cover is half price at the moment and looks extremely comfortable. (Note it comes slightly cheaper in grey too)

First up lets look at Urban Outfitters. We’ve chosen a mix of furniture that we think are so adorable. The colour, pattern and style of the dresser makes us want to buy it straight away. The different industrial style of the shelves is a useful item that we need. From last posts it may be obvious that we love Terrariums. Urban has a range of different shaped and sized terrariums on offer at the moment!

UO Magazine Rack and Basket

A few posts ago we picked some of our favourite items from the sale sections of various stores. One of these was this industrial style Magazine Rack and Basket from Urban Outfitters.

5520439590095_046_b   5520439590095_046_e

We liked it so much that we bought it!

We chose the black option as it would have clashed with the other colours in our room.

It’s just the right size for the space and looks great with our record player and vinyl. The colour works well with the other colours around and the red and white egg chair looks great with it.
