EXAMPLE OF A RECENT CLIENT PRESENTATION
Client brief: The Oliver Thornton Design Studio has been asked to update the living areas of a New York, turn-of-the-century, three bedroom apartment. At present, the client has a mix of furniture and design styles and is looking for a strong, singular vision to create a sense of cohesion between entry hall, living room and dining room. Design preferences include natural, traditional and heritage elements.
Response: Eastern Clubroom
The designer acknowledges original architectural features within the apartment consistent with turn-of-the-century architecture and the beaux arts style. Paying homage to the character of these features, the designer would like to create a clubroom aesthetic, inspired by Eastern color palettes and fabrics, the faded beauty of Indian palaces and the work of photographer Karen Knorr.
