05 Mar RENDERINGS & DRAWINGS | An Integral Part of the Design Process
One of the most gratifying things about working in interior design is seeing my ideas, originally in my head, and then worked through on paper, materialize in the real world. down2earth Interior Design had the pleasure converting this empty white shell of a Townhouse in Society Hill, Philadelphia, into a warm and gracious space for relaxing and entertaining. For this blog I will focus on the Living Room and Bar Area.
When approaching a project renderings and drawings are used to show our client a visual of what our initial discussions have produced. These renderings and drawings are in integral part of the interior design process. They give the client a chance to see what was described in words and how that will translate to the room design.
The image set below shows the Living Room Design completed on the left and the rendering on the right. They match up so very well and our client is thrilled with how accurate our work was translated into reality for their living space.
An empty corner of the room with a soaring ceiling was screaming out for a “wow moment.” Here are before shots of that corner.
We used that corner of the living room to create a custom bar that serves as a focal point in the room. The half wall was modified and I designed a brand new column, not part of the original architecture, to enclose and anchor the bar. The column was clad in linear rainforest marble.
The bar itself was designed specifically to accommodate the homeowner’s collection of wine and spirits. Below I show the drawing used to detail the construction of the bar area, along with the finished bar. We worked with the soaring height of the angled ceiling and the finished interior looks totally different than the empty white corner shown above.
At down2earth Interior Design we strive to provide our client’s with the best in Interior Design Services including all renderings, detail casework drawings, and supportive materials that will translate to the reality matching or exceeding our client’s vision.
