                                    BRIEF
Jane is a 24 year old single mother who has a three year old daughter. She receives
income support and is finding it hard to manage on benefit. She was recently given a
second-hand cream leather suite that is in very good condition. Her favourite colour is
blue, ‘all shades of blue’.

Her priority is to decorate her living room and she would like a modern/contemporary but
‘classy’ and calm atmosphere in the room.

As a mother of a three year old, she like to spend as much time as possible with her
daughter and would like the room to be as easy to keep clean as possible….Minimalist!

Jane would like some modern art work for her living room walls, new table lamp and
ceiling light shades, cushion covers for her suite and blinds for her windows.

                BRAIN STORM
In a brain storming session
we decided on fabrics and
styles with consideration to
the brief.

We used this as a basis for
the design of other
accessories such as
lampshades, canvases and
mirrors.
               MOOD BOARDS
We create a mood board to
gather ideas about colours,
styles, fabrics, materials,
themes and accessories.

This helps to give a clear
idea for the intentions of a
project.
                   Art Work
Using simple shapes
such as the stripes and
circles, and sticking to
requirements of the
brief, we created
effective abstract
paintings on canvas for
the living room wall.
             Decorative Mirrors
We used some fabric to
cover the chunky frame
of the mirror which were
then mounted on to
fabric covered panels.

We also used some mosaic
tiles as an alternative design
Solution.
                        Fabrics
We used different fabrics to
make some scatter
cushions with velcro
backings.

We then made a tab top
blind and a simple
decorative panel with
complimenting colours
     Decorative Lampshades
We applied paint
Effects to paper
lampshades, keeping to
the general colour
theme and abstract
Design.
