Principles of design-Rhythm

In this room I incorporated the 3 types of rhythm. Repetition in the pillows, radiation in the main picture of the rose, and lastly gradation in the vases on the table going from big to little.

Pricaples of Design-Harmony

Obviously my theme is flowers and floral print. The two elements that are present are color, there is a complementary color scheme using red and green My other element is line there is lines on the clock and lines boarder the picture on the wall.  Unity was created by have floral things tie in to the same room. This makes all parts of the room is related to one idea. Variety was created by having my 2 element of design play a role in this room.

Principles of Design-Proportion and scale

This room is in scale and very proportional. The flowers fit the table, the chair now goes with the couch and the pillow fits in the the rest of the room.  With all of these changes the room is now proportional. 

This room is my room that is not in scale/proportion. The lamps are too small, the flowers are too big, and the chair is too big also. Going along with that the pillow is too small for that chair. In conclusion those are the reasons that this room is unproportional and not in scale.

Principles of Design-Emphasis

My emphasis is my Christmas tree. I feel this is the emphasis is on the tree because it is well decorated and is takes up with most space. For the other objects in the room I tried to make them colors that go with  the tree, but wouldn't stand out next to it.

Design Challenge

My olioboard has all the elements of design. There is space between the chairs and couches that you can tell that the table is in front of the couch or chairs. The next element of design is line. There are examples of line in the picture to the left of the couch. Also the creases in the couch give off line. Next is form. Everything (besides the pictures) in this room has form because it is all 3D. some things with nice form are the lamp, kids table/toy and the tables.  Last but not least we have  texture. Some textures that stand out to me are the front of the reception desk, the fabric of the couch and the smooth wooden floors.

Element of Design:Texture

I made this room so it is full of texture. I have some Visual texture on the blue fuzzy picture, the couch, chairs. and the plant. There is audible texture on the leather ottomans, wood table, and both velvet pillows.   The last texture i have is tactile texture which is found it the big wooden table, the purple fuzzy pillow, the clock with a smooth texture and lastly the floor also with a smooth texture.

Line Design Examples

This room has many examples of curvy lines. Most of the curvy line are decorative, the lines on the wallpaper, Flowers, and decor on the tables. There area also functional curvy lines on the lighting fixture and on the chairs in the corners.  Over all the curvy line give this room a more natural and relaxed feel. 

In this room there are many diagonal line. The line on the  carpet and on the lamps all have diagonal lines.  Diagonal lines will have the appearance of movement to make a vibrant fun room. 

This room has some good examples of horizontal lines. The rug, stairs, and shelves are all horizontal lines. Horizontal lines  make the room feel wider.

This room has a lot of vertical lines that will make the room feel taller. it will also bring your eyes up toward the ceiling .

Color Schemes


This would be an example of a monochromatic color scheme. it is made up of one color. I chose blue because you can make a lot of different hues of blue. The effect that any monochromatic color scheme is a calming effect on the space. I thought sense blue was calming color that is would fit the monochromatic color scheme well. I think it turned out really good and would make a like relaxing living area. 

For my analogous color scheme the colors red, yellow, and orange. I know this is a analogous color scheme because the definition in "a group of similar colors". The effect that a analogous color scheme is it is vibrant and interesting. I pick the colors red, orange, and yellow because they are some of my favorite colors and i feel that they look good next to each other.

This would be an example of a split complementary color scheme. It has red, purple, and yellow-green. I like this color scheme and the colors together make a less intense and energized room. I picked these colors because i knew there is a lot of yellow-green decor.

I made a room that is a triad color scheme. You know that it is because the colors that make it up are blue, yellow, and red. Those colors are equally spaced from each other on the color wheel, which makes it a triad color scheme. The effect it has on a room is It makes a room more vibrant.  I thought by putting the primary colors together it is more simple, but by adding patterns it makes it more interesting.
