Last winter, I had my very first interior design studio class. My first impression of this class was that I loved the textbook. Ha. Loved the textbook...you don't hear that everyday. It was finally becoming real to me that I was in college studying what I'm so passionate about.
Our project for this class was to design a home for 'The Gray's Residence', a family who didn't actually exist. Which was fine by me, because them not existing meant that I could do whatever I wanted with their house ;) And...there was no budget. I was okay with that too.
In this class, we learned to draft floor plans and elevations.
I remember staring at that architectural scale with complete confusion...and feeling so accomplished when I finally completed this project. I have pictures of the floor plans that I drafted somewhere, but I'll have to show those in a later post!
Here are the designs I came up with for three of the rooms:
The above photos were arranged on a powerpoint and turned in when I applied to the interior design major last spring, but for the class we created an actual color board for our final presentation:
So there you have it! The Gray's Residence...complete. I think if they existed, they would have really enjoyed it.
Pssst. Did you see the post where I showed my second studio project? If you missed it, click here to see it! The second one was the most rewarding, challenging, and time extensive project I've had so far. But from what I've seen from the seniors this year, this was a piece of cake compared to what I have coming for me next year. But I'm looking forward to it regardless and will be sure to show you when I get there!
