It took me a long time to figure out if I should even share this design project. The main reason is that I prefer to show the overall before and after transformation. However, due to losing the before pictures that I didn’t save correctly, for this project it will require unique skills of being able to visualize, which will genuinely help while viewing this post. As a designer, having the assets to inspire through my design is something that I am always excited to pass along. One of my obsessions, which continually fuels my passion for designing, and that is using color. To show or visualize what a lifeless room looks like before, and how when dealing with a variety of colors, the after picture will not only be inspiring but a powerful transcending tool to help motivate someone afraid of using color to jump-start their long-awaited projects.
Moreover, for a moment, imagine a completely white room with only a sink, toilet, and a little bland, cheap square mirror that are typically in a newly built house. Furthermore, nothing was exciting at all within this space, and it lacked character, interest, style, and appeal.
Interior Design Studio: KCL-IDESIGN, LLC
Principal Interior Designer: Kimberly C. Lyons
Design Project: Appleton Lane Residence: Modern Powder Room
Project Goal: Incorporate the perfect color palette to show that modern design is even more beautiful when there is a host of colors competing for attention.
Project Outcome: Modern approach with a simple, and classic appeal.
Five colors are featured, but there are six. I incorporated black paint that was leftover from another project. It was added to create depth and give weight to the overall color palette. During the painting process, a drip technique was used to create a textured effect. Details of white and black were used to create a subtle contrast against the colorful backdrop. Also, the decor, which is intended to be simple, can be slightly seen with the chrome magazine rack below, along with the curly decorative branches.
