Rendering Interiors

From 3D rendering to watercolor illustrations, a look at some of the visual tools we use when designing our projects.

As things move along with a project we are working on in Tribeca, we’re looking forward to sharing some of the tools we use to help clients visualize their new home. Now that we have the approved furniture plans (click here to see these), we’re taking it one step further by creating a 3D model of the main living/dining area. An integral part of our planning on any project is not only to make sure that each furniture piece we design fits in the space, but also that it works perfectly in scale in relationship to everything in the room. Below, the 3D model of the large open plan Living/Dining/Kitchen space.

The same large room from the other direction.

A long wall of custom millwork elevated with furnishings below (you can read more about how we conceptualized this millwork here).

Here’s a look at the North wall (below) showing the dining area and part of the kitchen. The rendering comes to life with a little watercolor…(swipe left).

And finally, the 3D rendering of the living/dining room looking towards the windows; and the same view with watercolor to show fabric colors and a little texture…

Construction is about to begin on this project, so it won’t be until Spring before the installation. We’re looking forward to sharing more in the coming months!  You can also see the final images in our featured projects section by clicking here.

I love love love this post. Such a treat when designers show their inside process. What program do you use for your 3D renderings? xoxo Elizabeth www.stix-and-stonez.com
Love how you use different ways to showcase your designs! The watercolor renderings are gorgeous and soft, and help visualize the colors and textures of the future room. You said it yourself, the drawings just come to life with the added watercolor! As a very visual person, this would help me a lot when redecorating a room! Thanks for sharing! Julie~FurnishMyWay
