It is that time of the year when spring has appeared and in your garden appears all sorts of wonderful plants and exotic colours. Why don’t you try changing your interior by the shapes and patterns from fauna and flora. Today I will be looking at three of my own images of what I saw in my garden, or near my house. Then I will sum up each image with three words and begin to formulate a scheme through natural images as inspiration.
This tree is near my garden:
The shape is lopsided and peculiar, but when I look at this tree in a design and in a creative way, I think of cluster, circular shapes and odd numbers.
This daffodil with white petals and a yellow inner ring allows us to use colour within our scheme. Texture is incredibly important within a scheme, and daffodils are incredibly soft.
Three words from this daffodil is white, yellow and velvety.
Bark immediately makes me want to touch it. Some parts mossy, but the main part of the tree is lumpy and grainy. The colour of the bark is light electric blue. It can crumble very easily.
Three words: grainy, electric light blue, delicate
Textures: Grainy, velvety, delicate
Colours: Yellow, white, light electric blue
Patterns: odd numbers, circular, clusters
All the colours have been achieved here, with the accent colour of yellow, a stronger light blue and an obvious white. The rug has a grainy texture with small circular ties of fabric that gives it a special 3D effect. The soft, velvety white sheets are smooth and delicate. The lamp has three circular balls creating an odd number, whilst the pillows are clustered together to create a homely feel.
Why don’t you have a go?!
