For my interpretation and appropriation of Kinship I created a lounge space as I felt this type of environment is a natural space for connection and conversation with others.
“The lounge is the perfect environment
for creating a natural connection between people. I’ve used the Kinship trend to inspire a design that cultivates a sense of harmony, understanding and togetherness.
Bold forms and solid proportions paired
with rich and humble colours keep the space grounded. Setting the tone for this aesthetic
is Dulux Herbalist, which I’ve used on the
large feature wall. A touch of Very Terracotta emphasises the feeling of warmth, while the addition of deep grey with Ruski neutralises the scheme. Drawing all the colours together and centering the space is Glinks Gully. To finish, I’ve used a curated collection of furnishings, lighting and objects to highlight qualities of workmanship and craft.”
My colour trend interpretation features my Series Sofa and Matt Arbuckle paintings (NZ painter) alongside objects from around the world.
