One of my favorite phases in any design project is coming up with concept boards which give the overall look and feel of my design vision without having to worry too much about specifics of size, material, and practicality.  I guess I have a bit of a graphic designer's soul.  I love putting colors and forms together on a 2D surface.  Of course it is even more satisfying to see the whole thing manifest in a real 3D space.

Below is a really great small-scale project I have been working on, and I hope to show you some photos of the end result in the next few weeks.

I would love to know which of the 3 schemes you would pick for a living/dining space of a cute 50-60 year old home in Sugarhouse in Utah, and I will reveal what the client picked next week.


  1. Great boards! My personal choice, #1. But that's just what I'm more drawn too. They would all make for great rooms... I guess that shows how subjective design really is.

  2. I most definately prefer #1 with the cool spot light. Still, #2 with the owl lamp is pretty awsome as well. Is there a cost differential depending on the board that the client selects, or do your three schemes cost about the same?

  3. With all due respect to the above comments - #3 is definately the best in my opinion. The white wing back chair in #2 is pretty awsome though.

  4. Absolutely Nicole. Certainly it is subjective, however I would claim while good design is not just one thing, it is also not everything! There is a point where good design is no longer subjective. :)
