In My Perspective...

Hi, all! Hope your Easter weekend was wonderful! If you missed the picture on yesterday's Easter post, it's almost worth it to look now(:

Today I'm sharing my latest Perspective Drawing class project with y'all {Oh yeah, I started saying y'all over on Megan's blog(: }  Our assignment is to draw our dream room in perspective.  Sound easy?  It's not! But it sure is fun.  And hey, I'd rather spend 3 hours drawing than studying for a chemistry exam.  Fall quarter I took a floor plan drafting class and loved it. We learned how to draft elevations and plans, and my favorite elevation was of my kitchen, so for this perspective project I knew I wanted to do a kitchen.  Here are my two inspiration images.  You may be confused since one isn't a kitchen, but I'll explain below!



Any ideas of how I'm combining these two lovely photos??

Here's the scoop:
I loved the idea of the loft above a room, so above the kitchen, I'm adding a loft-catwalk-looking-thing to add some interest and depth.  Here's my floor plan and elevation so far:


An elevation is just a flat drawing of one wall of the room.  My elevation is the North wall in the above floor plan.  



The store fireplace doubles as a pizza oven. It was my favorite feature of the inspiration room, so I knew it was staying. Note to self: pizza kitchen is on my wish list for my future home (:

Hope you enjoyed a tiny look into my school work! Suggestions are always welcome.  Next up is actually drawing it in perspective.

Hope you have a wonderful Monday! I'm off to kick a Textile midterm {the day after Easter, really?!} in the booty!  

Love and Drawing,

  1. wow girl! You spoke a language foreign but exciting to me in this one. haha. I love the idea and concept. I like the open vibe too. I don't want a closed off home. I want it to feel connected and free flowing and welcoming and I want a study somewhere private but optimistically bright to go away and study my bible and read my books and write in my journal and eat pastries...

    hahaha K. I am done. Thanks for sharing and I love the plan! I'm no expert but I think my taste is decent enough.

    oh. btw. I'm following you!

  2. Love it! I love the look of loft, and would die for a pizza oven right in my very own kitchen. Very cozy and functional at the same time. Great job!! Good luck on your test.

  8. Great ideas and beautiful work lady! You are doing so well. I'm a huge fan of the loft idea.

    I wish we had a class that taught us perspective drawing... but I don't think they make it part of our part time program (lame!).

  9. I love having to draw elevations for people! (Although I do everything via Autocad instead of by hand, but still!) I draw floor plans, details and elevations for a living!

  12. I am pretty sure that if I could eat pizza every.single.night and not gain a pound I would! I just love it. The pizza oven/fireplace would make the kitchen so cozy. I love the cabinets with glass too. Something about seeing pretty dishes while in the kitchen makes me happy! (:

    You'll do great on your Textile midterm!

  15. Love your drawing. And taking your inspriation from two looks and combining them is sooo "designer". I like the stone, tile, and whatever the counter surface is going to be (granite or solid surface)and making it all work together. You are going to be a great designer. It must be the jeans (genes)!
