The goal of this project was to first create a mood board for the theme “Cozy, Warm, Secure” and then translate the mood board into a living and dining room. For the mood board, design consideration was mostly aesthetic – the pictures represent the mood accurately, and the placement of the pictures on the mood board is balanced and visually pleasing. More importantly, the design of the apartment – both functionally and visually – was considered to create a cohesive and beautiful space. First and foremost, I took the clients’ needs into account and designed the space around those. I made sure that the spatial organization of the apartment would be functional for the clients, and then used certain materials that would create a cozy and inviting atmosphere.
