My designs for a Chinese but contemporary bedroom

This was the first project for my Interior Design level 2 course at East Berkshire College in Windsor. We had to choose a global theme, a client and a room to design. I decided to go for a Chinese bedroom in an Edwardian house but with a European, contemporary feel.

Please see photos below showing how the scheme developed.

As with most interior design projects this started with inspiration from a concept or mood board.

Then we had to draw a floor plan and elevations to scale, showing a feature wall.

Finally, sample boards displaying the flooring, wall and ceiling paint colours, furniture, ornaments and fabrics. I chose a damask wallpaper for the feature wall with silk apple blossom fabric cushions and fretwork fabric for a chaise longue. The design includes a dressing area with chinese screen as well as chinese furniture from Orchid and lighting and ornaments from John Lewis. I know the photos aren’t brilliant but hopefully they give you an idea.

I was really pleased to get a distinction for this project, making it worth all the hard work and hours I put in. Now on to the next project (designing a cafe in a museum, a bit more tricky!)
