I often get called to work on new projects because my clients don’t have the confidence to pull materials, furniture, colours and fabrics together into an design concept that works for them and their rooms. I’ve talked in the past about the process I use when designing a room (see previous post https://www.anoushkaallum.com.au//2012/08/13/design-for-your-home/). The most important part of this process is that my client gets to see what the final room will look like before they commit to the overall design concept so that I can overcome any fears that something might not work.
The only way to do this is once all furniture, decorative items, fabrics, lighting, window and floor covering have been identified, collate all of these choices into a design concept board. This allows you to view the design in situ, enabling a better visualisation of the room in question. There are several ways that you can do this but an online too called Olioboard is by far the best and easiest. This online site is open for anyone to use to create designs and ideas for future rooms.
Below I have shared with you some of my recent designs, room by room, client by client to give you a flavour for style trends, what you can find in the local Australian suppliers right now, and how to pull a room together with either a specific style, colour palette or piece of furniture in mind.
I hope you enjoy and I’d welcome your thoughts and questions on any of these designs.
