In the past year I’ve been working on bringing some of my design skills into the 21st century. When I started college back before Y2K my design program only had one AutoCad class. That’s right, ONE. No Revit, no Sketch Up, and no other technology to speak of. Oh, how times have changed.
Call me old school but even with all of the technology available I still prefer to start projects with good old pencil and paper. I’m also still a fan of traditional mood boards. The way they show the vision for a space while also allowing the client to experience the textures and finishes can’t really compare to a digital schematic. That being said, digital designs are one of the best ways to work with clients from afar and for that reason I’ve decided that Photoshop is the next program I need to master.
Below is my very first Photoshop design. It took much longer than I had hoped, required me to watch a number of YouTube videos, and send a text (or five) to a friend.
The budget for this space was $5000. Of course, if the items were purchased on sale you could have an entirely new living room for even less.
Like what you see? Here are the links to all of the items.
Feather Frame (I have this one in my house and love it!)
Off-white Pillows (These are so pretty in person with little flecks of colors to match the rug)
