Here's how I decided to use these fabrics I posted about yesterday. The latice fabric was used to cover a modern wingback chair, the creme linen for the upholstered headboard with nailhead trim, the brown & creme striped linen for 2 x-stools at the foot of the bed, and the paisley was used for custom drapery (forgive my rendering, but believe me when I say that it's much better than my last one). These boards may look simple, but they require a fair bit of time when done correctly. In addition to carefully matting each item, we also have to create specification notebooks full of scale drawings, furniture overlays, schematic plans, product specs and client details (statements, concepts, & synopses). Here's a peak at mine:
While this class has been a lot of work, I've thoroughly enjoyed every minute. I originally began exploring interior design programs because I wanted to fill the gap between what I knew and where I wanted to go. I still have a few weeks before my first quarter is over, but I can truly say that I know it was the right decision for me. I finally feel energized and excited about what I'm doing, and I know all of my hard work won't be going to waste. It's safe to say that I'm really enjoying these design board projects.
