KLC Section 3
Here at last is my section 3 submission for my Eyebrook Design KLC studies.
It has taken longer than anticipated, but I have enjoyed this section of the course, particularly the classic contemporary window treatment and scheme.
The scheme features two of my current favourites; trees and the colour ochre…
In case you are wondering that gorgeous print is Osbourne and Little’s ‘Richmond’ fabric.
The silk velvets are by James Brindley of Harrogate.
I enjoyed the challange of the axonometric drawing…
The lighting project was tricky. Even though I have experience of re-wiring and sourcing lighting for properties, there was still lots to learn about layering lighting and organising lighting through circuits. I loved the research into lighting effects and still pour over Sally Storey’s book Lighting by Design.
The colour projects were fun, I love putting together colours and pattern so the quantity of schemes required here was a chance to play. The schemes really bring home how colour affects the way we feel in a space.
The environment section was a real eye opener. What a brilliantly written presentation by KLC. What clicked for me was the difference between true sustainability and ‘eco bling’; it sparked a desire to try to work in an environmentally and socially sustainable way.
The planning and building regulations project involved lots of research to create a client proposal and schedule for building and design works.
To some, Interior Design has a bit of a fluffy image. But I think that it is actually one of the most challenging design disciplines.
It has to consider the functional and the tactile, the way a space interacts with our movements and fulfils our practical needs. The aesthetic challenge is also huge, the composition changes with every wall and angle seen as we move through a space. In addition, Interior Design requires a practical knowledge of a huge range of materials, products, technologies and styles.
I chose the course as I wanted an area of creative focus that would challenge me for life. I think I chose well, the creative possibilities and challenges seem never-ending.
