Central St. Martins Interior styling course: Caroline James


I decided to study the Interior Styling course at Central St. Martins as I had completed a digital textile course for Fashion and Interiors and had found it really inspirational. Even though I work as an Interior Designer for a large company, my design background is Fashion and Advertising, in which I have a degree. Having never studied Interior Design at University, I wanted to gain a new view point on Interiors and from one of the best Art & Design Universities in the UK.
Image 1 (below) is from a selection of a screen printing on silk by Eric and Heather Chanschatz currently shown at the Saatchi Gallery London. I have used this as inspiration for my project on the course. The use of negative and positive space, use of form and the contrast in colours and finish. The project that I presented while on the course (above) is of a studio flat within a converted warehouse (floor to ceiling windows and original architectural features) with a contemporary urban design. All designed with all the actives in mind and creating the solutions with in.
Image 2 (below) is from Lassco, where we had a look at so many eclectic pieces of furniture: fantastic for finding unique objects. I loved the bright coloured radiators shown in the image. An item from here could be great as a statement piece in an overall design.
