LINDEN HOMES COLLABORATION: PART 1

Throwback to my first year of uni…

Linden homes approached my lecturer about a new development of houses in Waterlooville, Hampshire. We were asked to redesign a living/dining room and master bedroom for the show home, based on an artist of our choice (well, 2 artists, but I’ll save the rest for part 2!)

I stumbled upon contemporary textile and wall paper designer Jen Moules, who creates abstract illustrations based upon the natural world. Check out some of her work below:

Not only were we asked to create a cohesive interior, but also design textiles and wallpapers for the scheme too. To echo Moules’ work, I focused my designs on elements of nature; pumpkins and peacock feathers. I also made sure to use my go to colours, teal and coral.

I played around with the size of the motifs to create an ombre effect, which I thought would look cool at the top of the curtains.

Next came the visualisations… I took to Vectorworks to start building the floor plans and 3D space. One problem with this show home is the lack of floorspace especially in the living/dining space as it was a long, thin room. The rooms also had very high ceilings, 3.5m high with huge curved windows which meant a lot of natural light, very handy!10444757_922352667823803_98180200594462786_n

The circular, abstract shapes used within the chairs, table and lights are used to echo the free lines of the illustrations.

Here’s how the Living/Dining Space turned out:

This was a great first year project, it really threw me into working with industry (and taught me a lot about budgeting too!)

Stay tuned for part 2…
