GRANT LUCAS Architect
Practical Design at a Realistic Price
 
   Home      Interiors
My opinion is that Interior design is Integral to Architecture and should be considered from the early stages of a project.  Houses are to be lived in as well as looked at and as such the goal is always to make a space as seductive as possible. Minimally furnished houses may look nice in magazines.... they however do not give any hint to the users personality, nor are they inviting spaces. Soft furnishings, art and built in furniture are as much a part of a design as the bricks and mortar as they provide the personality and emotional warmth....without these things a house is just a shell, but with them it becomes a home.

Soft Furnishings: Soft furnishings are used to improve the sharp accoustics of the plasterboard walls and Brushbox parquetry floor. A Complimentary colour of green is used throughout the room to contrast with the warmth of the lilac walls. Items of interest are- Faded Lime tartan Throw-rug from Meyer Direct covering the Aubergine couch. Green Coke bottle spiral lampshade from Bali. ArtDeco Cocktail cabinet with feature inlays
