The elevation that I'm doing is of the window wall, so we have to show how we would outfit the windows and what else we would do with that wall in the space. The elevation is the straight on view of the wall, so how a person would view if you walked into the room - along with measurements of course. Voila...
Can you follow what my thought was for this wall? There is a set of four windows and then a set of three windows. I wanted to create a panel at the end of each set and then a panel in the middle so as to give the illusion of one large window. But there are dividers in between each window and I had to cover them somehow and did not want to use blinds, so I chose to do roman shades on each of the windows.
Here is another closer view...
I proposed some built-in bench seating on the left side of the window wall, and then some built-in shelving on the right side. My inspiration fabric for the space is used as a bolster on the left along with some other pillows as well as on some of the roman shades. Can you tell what fabric it is by my wonderful sketch?
I came across Christopher Farr's vertical stripe in khaki and knew it would be perfect for my bachelor pad loft space, so I used this as a jumping off point for the rest of my fabrics, color scheme, and overall mood/feel for the space.
Here is a photo of the layout sketch I've proposed for the space...(yes I used hot pink post-it notes as my pieces of furniture)
I'll try to explain this in zones - A and B at the top and then C and D at the bottom.
Zone A is the eating/dining area - large rectangular table and seating for eight. Zone B is the living/TV area which is adjacent to the built in seating area you saw above (TV is also going to be housed in a large built-in cabinetry unit).
Zone C is the entry/seating/bar area - console, bench, and bar with stools. Zone D down there in the bottom right corner is going to be the office/library area (also next to the built-in bookcase I proposed above) - desk, chair, loveseat, cozy, cozy.
There you have my thought process behind this space. I thought about showing you the design board here as well but then I would have had one really long post, so I figured I'd save it and share it with you tomorrow - plus, I don't think any of my fellow classmates read this but I figured it will be revealed at class tonight and then I'll let you know how that goes along with showing you the design board I created for the space.
What do you think of my layout and elevation sketches? Would you do anything differently? I really appreciate all of your comments, feedback, and continued support. I also welcome constructive feedback too as that is always helpful (and thanks to those who have - you know who you are and I'm forever grateful). I am so thankful to all of you for reading and for allowing me to share my thoughts and ideas with you. I'll be back tomorrow with my loft space brought to life - have a great day!
