Carlie's Principles and Design Portfolio
The dull fixture of this room creates a Harmony. The grayish color of the walls fit well to the couch and the black beams go with the TV and little fireplace. The dull lights really accentuate a softness to the room which suits the hanging wooden chair the is similar in color to the actual wood by the fireplace. The pictures hanging on the wall match the black and white of the sheet on the couch and the decor below the TV.
The ceiling piece and seating directly below it really creates a centerpiece with flowing outer pieces leading to the outer edges of the room really creating a radiation effect with the beams and lights all leading to the center circle and light fixture. The table below it being surrounded by chairs leading outwards of the center really follow the beams really tying in the aspect of radiation.
The exterior design of this house creates multiple structures and line formations of 90 degree angles and squares defining the point of Opposition and the line work creating multiple formations of 90 degree angles. The angles are created by the windows, fencing, garage doors and exterior design popping from the brick wall.
The curvature of the ceiling creates a Transition effect. Starting the from right side of the bedroom the curvature causes your eyes to follow to the left leading to the bed stand and lamp to the seating and windows, finally to the mirror and starting all over again back to the bed. In some cases your eyes could go backwards starting from the mirror and going in the opposite order listed still creating the same Transitional affect.
The blue and white gradation of the tiling really makes your eyes move from the blue bottom up to the growing white hexagonal tiles. The reason it starts from the bottom is because the blue is a dominant color compared to the white making it really pop causing your eyes to notice it's rich color first.
This living space shows repetition of color by consistently only using the color white from the walls to ceiling and floor. The furniture and decor are a similar equivalent shade of white creating a blank like canvas with no pops of color, only white. The chairs and table in the back with the flower decor are all the same white creating a repetition of the same shape and color.
This space of design shows objects arranged identically on each opposite side of the fireplace(center point) to create balance and equality. The books on the square table are balanced on the four corners with a pot in the middle. The couches are the same with matching pillows in the same area of seating the a rug equally in the middle of both seaters. The fireplace has two lighting holes on it's opposite sides creating a form of equality and balance as well.
This living room shows a good representation of InFormal balance. The asymmetry of the couches and windows show a balance where neither side is overpowering the other with a welcoming feel. The decorations also add to the asymmetry with the plant in the corner and the diffrent decor on the fireplace with opposing colors.
