Design Around #18: The Art of Kitchen Design.
Do not post your designs in this thread. A second thread will be posted for finished designs in a week.
I decided to go with Artwork as inspiration for a kitchen design. I looked at current fashions, and although I think it is a good topic, I felt that much current fashion is pretty monochromatic and finding the right fashion as inspiration and reinterpreting it in kitchen finishes could take some work. Since Steampunk took some doing I thought using an artwork as inspiration might allow more freedom and provide a broader palette so it would be a good immediate follow up to such a specific topic.
Here are my ideas about how to approach this project
1) Select the inspiration art piece.
2) You can be as literal or as subjective as you want in using the art piece for inspiration. You could pull the palette directly from the piece, or the piece could be used mostly to convey the style or mood of your kitchen design. You are free to interpret the art piece in any way.
Here is the tricky part:
3) I would suggest Not actually using the art piece In the Design--Just for Inspiration. This means if you use Dali's "Persistence of Memory" , you shouldn't have the picture with the saggy watches hanging over the table. This actually frees you to use Masterworks that you wouldn't hang a print of, or, like someone suggested "Spiral Jetty", an immense environmental piece that was viewed from an airplane.
4) Do not Post the Inspiration Piece until the bottom of your post after the sources and descriptions of your methods and materials, and then we can see how you interpreted it first, then the piece.
