Whether designing a property for sale or for personal purposes, the essential design process is the same. Understanding the architectural interplay with decor will help create a room that leaves a positive impression on the potential buyer or design client instead of leaving them befuddled or worse, disappointed.
In this this virtual bedroom design we were merchandising the property to function as a second home and or rental. With that in mind the room was to be used by the teenage daughter of our clients when used as a second home and a second bedroom in case of a rental. We were designing for both personal taste and general merchandising at the same time which means finding the intersecting elements of what might otherwise be a contradictory trajectory, or in other words a project going no where.
The daughters favorite color is blue, so we immediately incorporated a soft denim which would compliment the khaki colored buildings dominating the view from the room. Since the view is a major focal point the windows design is very noticeable, especially the rather odd looking crank windows on the left. Inorder to minimilize the look of the crank windows we chose a modern rectangular motif for the space which was repeated throughout the bedroom and apartment.
We selected gender neutral accents so that the room would appeal to as many persons as possible considering the parameters of the project, with the photo art of bamboo complimenting the vertical architectural elements both indoors and out. The plumeria blossom pillow could easily be removed to neutralize the personal preferences even further.
