THIS CEILING IS A STUDY OF HARD FAST RULES OF AXIS, SYMMETRY AND REPETITION RESULTING IN AN EXPRESSION OF BEAUTY. YOU CAN SEE THE COFFERED CEILING AND STEPPING OF THE DRYWALL THAT WILL ADORNED WITH PLASTER MOULDING. THE METAL STUD GIVES US A RIGID CEILING THAT DOES NOT SHRINK AS OPPOSED TO A WOOD FRAMED CEILING. AS I SAY TO A SANDER KEEP GOING TO MAKE THIS SURFACE AS SMOOTH AS A NEW BORN’S SKIN.
Check with the Marina if your yacht fits in and if not anchor out in the ocean with the big boys. A two toned yacht with a cream bottom and white top is elegant, all 256 feet of it with 24 crew members. The rule is to check if it is trains, planes or automobiles that your transportation fits the house where it rests.
SUCH A GREAT CONCEPT REFLECTING THE CEILING ONTO THE FLOOR AND CAPTURE THE SAME SHAPE TABLE WITH AN ARCHED SHAPE BELL. A CIRCLE IN A CIRCLE IN A CIRCLE AND SO ON. THE RE-ENFORCEMENT OF SPACE AND CONTAINMENT PLAYING WITH A CURVED SERVICE IS CAPTIVATING. A STUNNING DINING ROOM TO ENJOY DELIGHTS OF CHEF YANNICK ALLENO. THERE ARE HINTS OF RED AMONGST THE WHITE THAT SIMPLY DELIVER.
ON PONDERING A VANITY THAT I DESIGNED AND HAD MADE OVER 10 YEARS AGO, I AM INTRIGUED WITH THE LAYERS OF DETAILS THAT HAVE TAKEN ON A SHEEN LEVEL OF COMFORT. THE DESIGN WAS A FRAMED CABINET WITH A BEAD AND A BURLED INTERIOR FLAT PANEL WITH AN OGEE UNDER THE FRAME. THEY LOOK LIKE TODAY AND YESTER YEAR WHICH IS A SIGN OF GOOD ICONIC DESIGN. ICONIC DESIGN IS AGELESS.
MY COTTAGE LAKE HOUSE THAT HAS THE RULES SET UP TO BE BROKEN. SETTING UP THE BAYS WITH GABLE TOPS IN A CLASSICAL MODE SHINGLED IN A BLUE CEDAR. IN FRONT A LIMESTONE COLUMN ARCADE WITH FIR WOOD BEAMS GOING BACK TO THE MAIN COTTAGE ADORNING THE STAIR TO THE SECOND FLOOR ON THE EXTERIOR. THE STRUCTURE IS SET AND NOW YOU CAN PLAY BETWEEN THE COLUMNS WITH OPEN TO THE SKY AND ADDITIONAL PURLINS WITH SAIL CLOTH SUNSHADES. RULES ARE MEANT TO BE BROKEN TO CREATE BEAUTY.
PHOTOGRAPHY AS ART CAN GIVE YOU MANY DIFFERENT MOODS AND RESPONSES. WE ARE WORKING ON A BAY SIDE CONDO THAT HAS SOFT LIGHT AND WHITE WALLS. TO INSPIRE THE IMAGES OF RELAXED BEAUTY A LARGE DRIFTWOOD COLOUR WOODEN FRAME WILL COMPLETE THIS IMAGE. IN CONTRAST A HIGH LACQUERED FRAME WOULD HEIGHTEN THE STARE: USE THE FRAMING OF ART TO ENTICE.
FIRST COMES AN INSERT PANEL THEN A PANEL MOULDING THEN A PLASTER DECORATIVE MOULDING. FOR A FINAL MOVE A RAISED WALLPAPER WITH RAISED VELVET APPEARANCE. FLOCK WALLPAPER WAS ORIGINALLY PRODUCED WITH WOOLLEN CLOTH WASTE IN A POWERED FORM TO GIVE THAT LUXURIOUS FEEL. THE LAYERING CAN NEVER BE TOO MUCH SET UP STRUCTURE AND PERSONALIZE. ONE YOU HAVE THE RULES, BREAK THEM.
“Think of your walls as canvases: can you float the furniture layout?? A wide bench that can accommodate people both sides or one that has a back a great angle of repose in the middle. Think Thomas Crown Affair movie with museum scene that you view the art as elegant man steals and replaces art all for you.”
“Use form to define final shape. Tall thin pointy umbrellas perhaps an egg carton approach with individual holes to hold the points. Stubby umbrellas on a low tray on a stand or fish them out of an urn. Either way, study the object then create based on proportion and scale.”
