Some days ago I published here my Snow White project based on Alice in Wonderland. I was very happy to share it, but now I am even more happy because Design Connected selected my project as one of the big WINNERS in their contest. There is a link to their Facebook page where they published all winner's images. I want to congratulate all people who won, all images are fantastic and I have to admit I had great competitors.
An interior stylist is a person who chooses a location or designs a set. They source fabrics, furniture and accessories then place the products in the interior. Their job is to make a space look good and, ultimately, stylish
Vanessa Colyer Tay, who works as a stylist for Inside Out magazine, put it brilliantly when Iinterviewed her for Interiors Addict. She said, “designers were scientists and stylists were magicians.”
While interior decorators study and work on many of the same things as interior designers, their job typically doesn’t involve moving walls, installing services or planning for things like safety and utility. This is really the main difference - interior stylists are exclusively concerned with decorating what’s already been built.
In my work I want to create images which evoke the emotional reaction that makes us want to run out and buy what we see on the pages.
The White Rabbit wears a waistcoat, walks upright, speaks English, and is worrying over the time on his pocket watch. Alice follows him simply because she is very curious about him. And very soon she finds herself falling down a deep tunnel. For a few minutes, she is frightened; the experience of falling disorients her. Soon, however, she realizes that she is not falling fast; instead, she is falling in a slow, almost floating descent. As she falls, she notices that the tunnel walls are lined with cupboards, bookshelves, maps, and paintings.
In a dream, Alice has escaped from the dull and boring and prosaic world of adulthood — a world of dull prose and pictureless experiences; she has entered what seems to be a confusing, but perpetual springtime of physical, if often terrifying, immediacy.
One of the best-known dream worlds is Wonderland from Lewis Caroll’s Alice’s in Wonderland. I wanted to create space which is unusual and a bit surrealistic like a dream.
I based the concept of this project on this fantastic story. It would be so fun to push imagination to the limits however I wanted the space to be practical as well. I would say, it is a transition from Wonderland to our everyday existence through Alice's dream.
This is not the end of the story. I already work on the rest of apartment. There will be living room, kitchen with dinning room, studio and entrance.
In those images light is dancing soundlessly on the surface. This is exactly what I wanted to achieve in this little competition.
I was runner up in "Render it black" Competition. It was a quite challenge to render so dark image. Composition is very simple because I wanted to play with lighting a bit more.
