House Calls – the u:board

May 14, 2010

On June 10th, our design solution for a studio apartment will be featured in the House Calls section of The Washington Post. We were paired with an amazing and eclectic client, named Lyn, who wanted a place to rest her head while in The District for business. In addition, she wanted a dynamic and interesting space to entertain friends while showcasing her personal style. This is the first in a series of blog posts that show our process in creating her ideal space.

The first step in our design process is to consult with the client and establish their needs, likes, dislikes, and most importantly, their personal style. After that consultation we create a u:board, which is is a tool we use to focus our design process. If you want to read more about our process of creating a u:board, check out our previous post: https://residentsunderstood.wordpress.com/2010/04/05/our-core-concepts-personalized-designs/

Below you can see the u:board we created for Lyn in the beginning stages of this project.

Lyn is a sophisticated modern woman who has a zest for life and a love of opera. Erté was identified as a key artist because his work was flamboyant while maintaining sophistication. Never afraid of bold color, wine, or conversation, Lyn prefers interesting to elegant, vibrant to safe. Her style could best be described as the sleek decadence of Art Deco tempered with an appreciation of worldly colors and textures.

Check back soon when we will show you how much fun we had with color on this project!
