About This Class

c77523a8

About: In this class you will be introduced to a methodology for creating an interior space by using a piece of art as the visual start point.  You will learn how to look, dissect and apply your 2D findings to your 3D space – be it for you or for a client.  Source material is endless so it’s good to start with a favourite/interesting painting or print. You will learn and use ‘design language’ and apply it to your final concept board. The board will be the start point to create the room scheme in real life.

 

No prior knowledge is needed.

 

This class is for:

·         the home designer wanting to update a space of their own

·         established interior designers or architects wanting a more conceptual way of creating a visual language for a space

·         anyone newly interested in interior design.

Application: It is a fun way to start in interior design.  It gives a clear process of how to combine colours, shapes and patterns and apply this to finding interior furnishings.

Resources: You will need a source image (we will work with a digital image in this class) – whether from a website or a book or magazine.  Paint colour cards (desirable but not essential - free from painters merchants), software to drop images onto. Powerpoint or your preferred programme.

Transcripts

1. INTRO TALKING HEAD: Hi, my name's Leslie Taylor. I'm an interior designer and stylist based on the south coast in England. I've been working as a freelance interior designer for 15 years now. I'm also a lecturer and I've been teaching for 30 years now. I've taught interior design, retail design, and visual merchandising as my specialisms. My company, gloss interior styling. If you want to find me online, is gloss hyphen interiors dot co dot UK. I would specialize in commercial interiors. So most of my work in recent years has been hotel rooms, bars, and VIP clubs, which has been really, really fun. I started off creating show homes. So, you know, the ideal picture perfect living space. I do occasionally design part of somebody's house, but my passion really lies in the commercial work because it moves really fast. I'm going to be teaching you a methodology for designing a scheme of visual theme for a space. So whether you're an interior designer, that's a bit of a mental block. You, you're stuck for ideas on a project. This is a really nice way to just work quite freely and work a little bit more abstract and come out still with a viable scheme for a room. If you're a student or somebody who wanted to get into interior design and you're thinking, you know, what is it these people do all day? How did they create these spaces in this lovely furnishing schemes? Then this is an insight into how you can find inspiration and how he can work methodically and come up with something that you can work with for yourself or for your client. 2. 1 CLASS PROJECT INTRODUCTION: I'm going to start by showing you some examples of four concept boards. You might have heard people talk about mood boards. Concept boards may be designed boards. And you might be confused and think, well, what's the difference? So the mood board, which we're not going to work with, the mood board conveys a mood so it doesn't have to convey any detail. It made a show texture, some abstract cuts of imagery and, and get a feel for a theme that we taken into any design discipline. Wherever the concept board shows detail, it's almost specifying suggestions that you would like to use yourself and your interior space or that your client might use dependant on how your, how your working and while you're going through that process. So the first example I'm going to show you here is for a hotel room. And this was to refurbish all of the rooms in a 28 bedroom hotel, but not so they all look the same. What we needed to do was choose some good commercial contract furniture, which you can see here, which is the wooden furniture. So maybe not the most exciting furniture in the world, but with commercial jobs, the client wants it to last and we can dress them up with the styling of the room, the paint, the wallpaper, the accessories, et cetera. And you can see here, we pick this orange which did go through to completion. It was a north-facing set of rooms, so we needed a really warm color to make them more inviting for the customers. The layout of this board, you'll see hopefully the first place you're I went was the centre which may have been the light fitting, it may have been the headboard. But these are quite key parts of the room. So I've put them in the center of the board and then worked out from them what I've tried to work fairly equidistantly so that we don't have lots of big gaps and that your eye isn't flying all over the page. So you want your customer to be able to lock in and really examine everything, but not feel like it's a real mess and everything's all over the place. So that's one way we can lay out a concept. This concept board is for home interior set of products as it actually was for a retailer. And you can see it's laid out in a more elevations style, maybe in a way that you would lay that wall out in that room. And that is something you can play with if you've got good examples of imagery that aren't photograph to angles, for example. So here you can very clearly see what the theme is. It's grey. It's lots of different textures are suggested here due to different gray paint colors. One could be for the walls, one could be for the trim, for the door, for the door frames, et cetera, the lighting, you can see what duplicated. So that's something you can play with. And you can see sets of two and sets of three of things around the room. And that gives you repetition. That gives you a little bit more interests. So rather than just showing one item, you can show them how you might actually buy them. Coming onto the third concept board, you might think I've seen that furniture before and you have, you saw it in slide one. And this is the same whoa tau from coming back to this more different angle now these are a different set of rooms. So as I mentioned, the furniture, the heart wood furniture was bought for every room in the hotel. And then we looked at different styling around it. And I actually picked, here's some really nice, quite expensive Vivienne Westwood wallpaper, which we can't get anymore, but we did do some of the rooms in that. And again, a slightly more at markets that have lighting, these were rooms that the premium was much higher and they would deceive you rooms, which is why you can see in the corner, I've added an image of an old-fashioned image of the sea front that this hotel overlooks. So again, keeping to that same layout as the first concept board, it would be right, and it was right to keep the same kind of layout for each of the schemes that I developed for that customer. And here we've got something that's much more grid-like. And this is for hairdressers and the client really knew what she wanted. She had seen a salon in London and she showed me some photographs of it. And she said I want my son or like that, but I'm gonna paint it myself, which was amazing. And she, her, and her team did do this. So I've picked a selection of colors, a selection of patterns, and digital wall papers, some display ideas because she wanted to really go for it and have this really amazing salon, which at the time was just painted white and really wasn't that exciting at all. So I'd given her stuff she can play with herself there. And you can also see that I've written on our I'd given her quite a lot of detail where she can get staff. You know, this is all based on further conversations basically. So you can see this is a different kind of concept board, but again, it's very much a toll that she is going to work with. 3. 2 GATHER YOUR MATERIALS: Let's look at what you're going to need to create this concept. It's very simple. We are going to work on our computers, laptops, PCs or Macs. And you're going to need some software that you're familiar with, that you're comfortable with that will allow you a blank page to drop images on and move them about. I'm going to use PowerPoint. It's very, very simple, it's very clear. We can cut out backgrounds if we weren't, and we can crop images. That's about all you really need it to do. The only software I would advise you don't use for this is word. So if you're using Microsoft Office, you will already have PowerPoint. And I really would recommend you use that for clarity and so that you're not frustrated with images jumping all over the page. Word is designed as a word processor, which you can add images into, but it isn't a graphics package. If you're happy with Photoshop or Illustrator or any program like that, please just use what you're comfortable with. Okay? So then you're going to need an image. So this is the nice bit where you get to choose a painting, either one you love or you may have a style that you like that you could Google. You could say, I like abstract expressionism or I like impressionism and see what comes up. So I'm just going to show you a couple of examples that will give you a really different content. Okay? So Kandinsky is always fun because there's lots of shapes on here, there's lots of colors and there's lots of deaths of lines. So by looking at this image in particular, there's quite a lot you could draw out of this and you would draw around to fit what you want to draw out of it. You don't have to use recovery. You don't have to use every shape you might use to shapes and three colours. But your inspiration would have been the Kandinsky painting. You might like Frida Kahlo. She's been very own trend for the past few years. Again, a huge amount of color, really, really bright, quite feminine images. Some of them are darker than others. But look at what appeals to you visually. It's something jumps out at you, then that's a good choice of image. Bank. Gough is a really interesting painter for texture, which of course we use a lot in interiors. And he would layer architecture, which you can see in this painting. He'd really lay on thick paint and his color palettes are really, really famous. And I mean, just looking at this now you could almost use every color in this painting within an interior space, there's some beautiful organic shapes. It's really soft, but in it's own way, it's also really bold. So there's a lot you could play within this particular painting. You might want to come right up today and go for something like Damien Hurst, which some of his stuff you won't get much out of. It's very, very bold, it's very repetitive. But don't go for the dots paintings because all you're going to have as dots, but you will have a good color palette. So something like the butterflies, you've got repetition here. You've got this central focal points. You've got the circles radiating out, and you've got the butterfly shape. She's also got more abstract shapes and it's an awful lot you can look at. So I really do recommend you pick a painting where there's lots for you to look at. 4. 3 PALETTES: Okay, let's have a look at isolating some colors. So I've chosen a painting by Jasper Johns, it's called device circle. And you can already see there's a lot of pattern and texture. 2d, there's 3D, there's typeface, there's collage. Again, longer you look at something, the more you will start to see what is within a. So I'm going to isolate colors by making a little viewfinder. Okay, so this is just how to do it in PowerPoint, but there'd be different ways to do it if you're working in different software packages. So I'm going to create a little view, find ways to do this with paper and scissors many years ago. And I got into the 21st century and started to make them with digital software. So just going to create, we're just gonna make a little white oblong. We're gonna copy it and paste it. This is exactly what I would've done in a class with students like say with the scissors, just a bit of A4 paper. And we're just gonna make a little patched kind of view finder. Okay, Hobbes, we do, I'm doing here, and I'm just going to group those so that when you move it around, it doesn't all fall apart. Now we may change the size of this and this is what's quite good about doing it on screen is weaken rather than cut lots of different viewfinders. We can just play with the one we've got. We can stretch it, make it bigger and stretch it and make it smaller. So I'm going to start with this size at the moment. So there's a lot of color going on here. There's a lot of movement and ought to isolate. I want to find some colors. So I'm instantly drawn to this read because it's one of my colors. So that's a color that I'm thinking I'd like that within my interior, It's a color alike, it's warm, it's wow, it's got some real energy about it. So I would then start to look at either finding that color on line or maybe finding a paint swatch. I've got a collection of them. But if you're not an interior designer, you won't have a collection of them. And with the current situation, you might not be able to get hold of them very easily. I know I can't just walk into my local paint merchant Now I have to book an appointment and tell them what I want before I go. So I can't just trundle in and pick up a few paint cards. So various ways of doing this, but I'm going to use JuliaBox, internationally renowned color system. And will you do locks to see what we can find, to maybe come up with a kind of a close match. Now, I've got some that I found earlier that I'm gonna share with you. So I found what is like a south. So read. Now, when you're looking at paints watches online, they're quite different to what you will see. In real life, because the screen is made up in a different way from the pigments that make up the paint. So without going into too much technical detail, use any online reference as a loose reference and you could always print out a page and take it with you to the paint merchant and then start color matching appropriately. Now I know South syringe, so it may look a little bit different here. I know it's actually quite a close match. So I've picked my red. I've also pick this lovely blue. Now this is lighter over here. If we start to isolate, you see there's a very dark rich blue hair, Prussian blue. That's how I would have no misses an art student. Here. It's becoming more kind of electric. And again, if I just squish that down, it takes those others. There's other colors out of the equation and you can just see that color and concentrate on that color. I really liked overhear where it's almost more of a den in blue. So I know we've got a bit of a wash in some different tones going on. But I picked that area because I just really like that blue. And when I was looking on the JuliaBox website, I found Breton blue. And It's quite fun looking around their website. And there's, it's almost like a game. You know, what what room do you want to pay? Is it the wall is at the floor there recommend all sorts of finishes. But really you're just looking at the color. So I've got two colors coming out of this already and I don't know what I'm gonna do with them. Yeah, I'm literally just pulling some colors out. Another one I've found earlier which I just love this color, it's called Earth glaze. And you can see it's used, the yellow is used in quite small doses, but regularly around this painting. So I'm going to reduce that. And you can just see here you can isolate that color and you can really focus on it. So don't forget the whole point of using the painting. One image, one static image is that you get to really look at it. You get to really examine it. And it's the antithesis of flicking through loads and loads of images online. For 2.5th each, we're going to really sort of stop and stare. So through this painting, this yellow doesn't really change march. He's not mixed it particularly. It's pretty consistent. So that's what I've managed to match it where there's something called Earth glaze. Now, that's all great, but those three colors are pretty powerful in a room altogether. So I've pulled out what I see as an off why he's used a white paint. And the nice thing about using a white viewfinder is what you think is white actually isn't always white. So here this white is almost Pinky. So yeah, you can see there's a lot of mixture that there may be some red within that. This looks nearly opaque white down here. Again here it's got a slight pink. But up here there's more of an off-white. Again, I'm gonna go really small just to get rid of those other colors up here. And especially here, there's this kind of dirty or most gray white. And when I was looking at the white selection in July, Alex and I absolutely obsessed with shades of why I find it fascinating seeing there's, it's called shift on whites. These numbers that you see. So she, from white to is one of four or five shades of that color that you'll see on these swatches that I'm going to show you in a minute on the left. So earth glaze for is a card with four or five shades of that yellow. You could use one or two of them together from the same palette. Breton blue and South Korea. These are standalone colors because you see they don't have a number next to them. Ok. So these are the colors that I've pulled out. Now, like I say, you would be well served if you can get a paints watching from two views. So just going to show you if you're not familiar with it, if you walk into decorators merch in here on the right, you can see the TaylorMade colors. So any of these pallets you pick up, you might have a printout with you, or you may have your, your painting or your final concept board on your phone or tablet. And you can then start to look at the actual paint colors. These are really, really accurate. The TaylorMade colors are those that you actually request and mixed up. They can't they can't have a pot of each of these in the shop. That would just be the biggest shock on a, so they just mix it for you there and then it takes about ten minutes and it's quite a fun experience watching it happen. A professional color palette like I'm showing you here on the left. These cost. And in the UK they cost about 25 or 30 pounds. If you are a designer and you're regularly going into paint merchant, they will sometimes gives you this for free. It's a little bit of an incentive that that's what happened to me when I set up my company. And they said, oh, you'll be needing this. So it was a kind of look, we're looking after you, please. Would you spend the money with us? So this is a massive palette. And on the left here, these are the same kind of color cards as you get on the carousel on the right. The carousel on the right is very much for the public and they'll all have fancy names for the trade. They'll just have numbers. So it's not quite as exciting, but they are the same colors, okay? Every patient has a technical reference number so that you can match it. What you can also pick up that's really useful just to have in the drawer is some collections, and this is a heritage collection. I use heritage colors a lot. They're much more muted. They are very, very fashionable at the moment. But you might just be able to find that, that match if you can't sign shift on white, you're very likely going to find something like that in these pale tones and mid tones within a heritage palette. 5. 4 SHAPES: So we're coming onto shapes. What shapes can we pull out of our image? So I think it's quite important to start outside and work your way in because it could be very easy to ignore that this is a perfect square. So I'm going to make notes visually would just with the shape icons. Ok. So I'm gonna just make that note as a blue PR. Interior designers don't get everything right. Don't believe what people tell you. Okay? So let's make that a perfect square, ok, just by holding the Shift key down and just making that equal on both sides. And I'd just kinda wanna make that empty Surge, gonna give it a black outline and white. Sari, again, I'll say to designers aren't perfect. There we go. That's what I was trying to do. That's what I was actually trying to do. And I've got a little blue promised screen, so I'm just gonna get rid of that. I think it's quite cool to show you that doesn't always happen right first time. So against just hit shifted. So I've got a square. But last, the overriding, the circle is the overriding shape and opposites in the name as well. So let's, let's pop a little circle in there. And again, let's just hold the Shift key down so we get a perfect circle and not a kind of an egg shape. So again, that's a visual note. Okay, just gonna right-click. We're going have a black outline this time and a white fill first time. Ok, so that's what we've got there. There's also we've got 3D element here, which I think, and I'm not sure, but I think it's a paintbrush. But what I'm gonna do is I'm just going to interpret that as a narrow kind of shape because I think that's something could have a bit of fun with that. So again, I'm just going to clear that color off. And I'm going to copy and paste that a few times because I just think that could be interesting if you remember the concept border showed you where they were going to have three, There were three vases, which was a bit more interesting than just having the one. So there, there's a nice bit of inspiration or a day. What I've got here is lots and lots of really abstract wiggly paint splashes really. So I could try to interpret it that I could draw that, but do I need to do any of them really jumping out at me? I think what's more important is that we make some notes. So I'm going to say pates, blushes. That's some of the shapes that I'm getting out of that I think they've really, really key. Ok. What else have I got? So just going to write the square, circle. A section is to gain their text and to go into detail that it's a serif font. I can see here there's newspaper. So it might be that I look at newspaper prints. Actually looking at this as a goal frame. So we could have actually looked at that in color. But it's again, something we might want to bring in quite often when I've seen this image online and in my, my big art book, which is where I actually got this from originally, the frame isn't shown. And I think that's quite important because a gold frame is usually deemed to be quite classical waves. This is clearly a really contemporary in its day, but quite an abstract, abstract painting. Okay, what else might seeing? I'm seeing splotches. That's what I was trying to get at. I think when I was talking about these kind of abstract shapes. Ok. Now I'm thinking, Is there anything else that I can see? I can actually see the paint dribbling here, which I think is something different to a splash. Because a splash is a deliberate action and ADR liberalism's. So that could be something that we could have a look at. Okay. Let me see what else have we got? We've obviously got the name of the painting. And looking intently, this crosses up here. So that's quite interesting. Let's see if I've got a cross symbol, which I think I have defined these much quicker than me or say it down there, Leslie, there is, let's have that. There we go. So we've got this kind of cross shape, which is interesting. And I know that I have seen furniture kind of derived from that shape before. So let's have a look at that. So yeah, couple of crosses up here and you can imagine in really attacking the canvas, painting those so numbers here. I think they're upside down, but I'm going to say is text, so I'm gonna put that up there while numbers. So I mean, you can see that was a couple of minutes of looking at this picture and I've pulled quite a lot out of it. I'm not seeing anything else at the moment, but I'm sure I could pull it pull out another two or three things if I really, really sat and stared at it for another half an hour. So what I'm gonna do is just save that as it is, and then we can move on to what we're actually going to do with all this stuff. 6. 5 APPLYING YOUR FINDINGS : Okay, you're probably looking at this and wondering, what is it? What I'm doing here is I'm bringing all the elements together. So start with a new fresh page and just copy and paste all that work we did in the last two videos. So the shapes, the colors, and the notes that we made. Now, you need to decide, or you will have already decided what room you're going to be looking to design. I picked a living room because there's a lot of options of furnishings and deck or that we can go for. So I very much had a list in mind. I thought I'm gonna just furnish this from the off. I want lamps, I want seating, I won't I won't wall color. And I want some really nice accessories as well. So I started to look at certain search terms that I could create from the work that we had done. So I think you heard me talk about this is Prussian blue, that was a tube of paint I used to have as a student. And I thought I really would like a nice leather chair. I'd need a TV unit and a bookcase. So I just thought, Well, I'll see what comes up when we look at the word cross. These are not quite, but it's based on primary colors. So I thought I've just put that into a search engine as well and a paint splash lamp. I really didn't know what was gonna come up because of the area of the painting and kinda 19 fifties i thought, you know, let's go a little bit retro. So again with the leather chair, I've picked something retro that I will show you. And I specifically searched for a retro style so for and, you know, I mean, this is all about paints flesh art. So I thought, Let's see what paints pressure is out there because I can't afford to buy the Jasper Johns if it ever comes up. So what I've done is I've already found some images and I'm gonna talk you through them one by one. But just wanted you to understand the thought process behind the search terms. So you might say, well where do I search? And that's something as a, as a fledgling designer, you start to learn of your own accord. What's in your price budget, what's in your price range, what's in your client's placed price range. And is high-end, There's kind of low end. There's, you know, we can all get online and look at ikea and we can do screen grabs from any website. Now, I use wafer a lot. I'm in the UK, switched wave fare dot co dot UK. And they're a bit like eBay there, a bit of a portal. They don't hold any stock, but they can get it for you. And they've got a massive range that they buy from other companies. They're very efficient, very, very efficient, and read your customer service. I'm not on commission in case you wonder why I'm waxing lyrical. But there are site that I think if you're getting into this professionally, they're quite good site to use because there's a lot of filters. So most of what I'll show you now is from wayfaring. Some of them are not. It's worthy of note at this stage that you need to save your searches. So either bookmark them. On your laptop or your computer. Or if you use Pinterest, you can save things in Pinterest, or you can just save the links on a spreadsheet is entirely up to you how you want to do it. You might not even looking for three or four items, in which case you might even write them down. So record them. Prices or some change and offers change. So it's worth kind of screen grabbing me offers and trying to always get them. That's just a little insider tip. Okay, so I'm gonna show you the first thing I found, which I was thrilled with for my Jasper Johns inspired living rooms. This is the room that I've chosen. So I'm just gonna do and reveal now. And my search term was paint splash rug. And I found this and I thought, you know, this is just exactly the look I'm going for and loved it. It was perfect when you look back at the painting. So I was really, really thrilled to find that. So that's a definite and that was from wafer and it wasn't that expensive. So maybe I'll even by it. So I'm just going to pop that back over there. So that's a really good starting point. Iraq is a really big part of your room. And that's where you can really have a bit of fun with color, pattern, texture, et cetera. So I wanted to let the chair or do something a bit retro, a keyed in Prussian brute blue leather chair. That's quite a specific thing to look for. And if I didn't find what I wanted, I'd have to wiggle my search terms, however, perfect seat came up and I said this wasn't from wafer. These are actually what they used to be red because they're allowed to do that anymore. But these, you will, you will see is quite a commonplace chair, usually in black with the Ottoman, the footstool. So I just thought that really match the year that I was looking at, really, really loved it. That was a winner. So we'll keep that one in, okay, and I'm just gonna put the search term back over it to keep it tidy. Okay. You can see with it's not a PowerPoint lessons, what I'm doing here is trying to bring all the search terms to the front so I don't lose them. Okay. I wanna TV unit and I just added the word cross. Didn't know what I was going to get. That's quite pleased. There was quite a nice subtle I've just deleted it. There we go. Another interior design blooper. There we go. So this nice TV unit with the crossed legs and I thought that's really nice. That's a bit different. I just like the wooden element. Again, it kinda fits quite nicely with the word on the side of that chair. Those kinda ash colors. So that was definitely a keeper. And I always need bookcases. So I thought, well what's linked to that range? And it's quite good to start looking into ranges as well then so things might start to coordinate a little bit. So again, let's get rid of that. The cross coffee table up. Sorry, I've done that the wrong way round. Where's my bookcase? There's a bookcase, so that's the bookcase that matches the TV unit. You can see there that just bring that forward and make that most big. So there we've got a collection thought that was really, really nice, really happy with that. And then the cross coffee table, this is so retro. This is so, so, so 19 fifties. And I just thought that would be amazing. Sitting on that rug, really, really amazing. I think your visitors would say, wow, look at your place. So I hope you're seeing how this is coming together now. Okay. I wanted to so far, this is all lovely, this chair, but we need to so for, so I just specifically wanted a retro style so far. And you'll find a lot under that search term. And in wafer they have a kind of a filter for it. So this is again, a really nice 50 styles so far, we've got this kind of wood element. And these two woods look like they're going to match, may be quite closely. You can't tell in the photographs you really do have trap the products in front of you. So that's the only downside of shopping online. You may get a slight mismatch and just be aware of it if it's for clients, you know, just be really upfront with them. Okay. I thought I know light lamps, I'm not overly fast about overhead lighting. So I just thought, well, let's carry on with the circle motif. So you can see here I'm kinda looking through my list and let's pick that up. Really like this. Really simple is actually all about the light rather than the surround of the bulbs. So when that's lit, really all you're gonna see is those LEDs, not really the the chrome casing. So I thought that was amazing. And you could have two of those in your in your living space quite easily. So I thought she was see if there are any fun lamps out there. So I keyed in paint, splash lamb, and I was very pleased I did. And this beauty came up, but it's very hard to buy, very, very hard to buy. I think a lot of people are talking about it and there are some not very nice copies. But if I could get that that table lamp, I'd be thrilled. I think that's a real talking point. And when you're looking at kind of that kind of rock, quite simple bookcases. I think these are the standout items. These are the equivalent of your netlist, you rings, you bracelets. These are the add-ons compared to when we get dressed. And Akkadian primary color into wafer, just that well, I'll see what comes up. And it was a bit of a strange one. And this is why the question mark here. But this really nice plump came up, or I should say, photo plants really. But you know, the planting and the cacti really, really on trend at the moment. And look at the issue by, and it's in a circular, patterned circular container. So that's what I would call a happy accident. I think I would buy three of those, which would then have us using our repetition of the shape here. So hopefully that shows you how that's all tied together now. So that was an accidental search. So I think don't be afraid to look for your plants, you know, get them to, get them to work. The colors are great, actually the red really works. Kinda gotta yellowy tinge, but we don't have to match everything. So finally some paint splashing. But well, let's just see what comes up. And you know, I just wonder if this artist was at all inspired by Jasper Johns. You know, hopefully, maybe it will be much more affordable and on the open market at the moment. So I'm just going to bring that, that note back here. Okay? One thing you can do, which is a really nice sort of sign-off, is have a copy if you, if you don't mind reproductions, you could actually have a print of the Jasper Johns are within your lounge. Maybe in a gold frame, maybe in a yellow frame, maybe in an off-white frame that would be entirely up to you. Maybe in a wooden frame that matches some of these elements that you've got to just tie it together. That's the real detail that people look for from interior designers. That's the level that we work too. So you can have the reproduction or you could have this, which is a reproduction on a much more mass-produced scale. Okay, so I've got my page. It's still very much a work in progress. It doesn't look very pretty at the moment. So what we can do now is get rid of all the notes. Get rid of the shape's gonna keep the paint swatches. I'm gonna get rid of old text. So I'm just going to delete everything, but I really don't need. So if we were showing this to a client, you would take all these search terms out. I'll write a class about presenting to clients and how much information you give them. But if it's for you, you don't need too much. Okay? So here we are. So I've got all these images, various backgrounds and all sorts going on. So I'm just going to tidy this up a little bit. Okay. 7. SUMMARY: So you've come to the end of your first project with me. I hope that you've really felt that you've learnt how to stop and spend some time looking at an image, really dissecting it, really, examining it. We spend a lot of time now scrolling and flicking through things really, really fast and we don't take detail in. So this is a really good way of examining. And the more complex the image that you choose, the more that you've got to look at, and the longer you may spend actually taking it apart and pulling elements out for your interior scheme. 8. DON'T FORGET!: Don't forget to upload your concept boards. And if you are able to take this through to an interior space, be it at home or for client, you can always come back and it would be really great to see some photographs of that interior alongside your concept board. Thank you for learning with me.
