The Art of Geometry and Pattern in Design

COFFERED CEILING

I am in the process  of designing the interiors for  a large home and the Client’s desire is to have a grand  living space. My challenge and task is to create something that has the ability to fill this vast space and catch the eye without overpowering other elements in the home.

I am a devotee of clean lines, this ceiling is a combination of a Classic aesthetic with a Contemporary vision. My Clients also share this philosophy in their desired aesthetic for their beautiful new home.

I looked to geometry and pattern to design this coffered ceiling. The first floor becomes a spotlight for the home, setting the tone for the flow and harmony of layout, lighting and furnishing.

The square design brings a linear, clean, and sleek feel to the space. When creating this type of custom design, the proportion and dimension become the most important. The size of each coffered space must be perfectly in tune with other elements in the home.

In the image presented here, we can see the beginning stage of the construction, and the intricacy and accuracy that is needed to bring the design to fruition. The drama of the geometry will be complete when the finished product will be lit from within to create a  overall glow of the entire space.

Geometry is the backbone of Architecture, the proportion and angles and dimension are the tools we Architects utilize to bring a drawing to life in a real space. Then, the use high quality materials and expert execution come into play to create  artistry.

The clean lines of this coffered ceiling add an elegance to what will be a showplace for my Clients.

The Wall is Your Canvas…

When looking to add some color, texture or drama to a space, the walls are the ideal  surface . By transforming with paint,  large scale graphics or fabric, you can create an Art Gallery in your own home.

The image in this post, is a modern, custom graphic in the Master Bedroom from our Soho Loft Project at 40 Mercer, NYC. This graphic evokes an atmosphere and mood and transforms a large wall into a statement Art piece.

By keeping furniture and objects clean and streamlined, the structural walls become the star of your room. Color and texture on the walls create depth, warmth, and light.

This is a large scale canvas and you are the Artist. Anything can be created, with the most innovative materials, rich color tones or lush and luxurious textures.

Adding these elements can be the makeover that was needed, a fresh viewpoint on an existing room, or add charm, whimsy, and beauty  to your home.
