Budget drama and landscape design are the focus of this week's Design Star challenge as the remaining four contestants makeover a family's large backyard. Let's see how it went and what judge, Candice Olsen, had to say this morning when we spoke with her about working with shapes and tips for defining your design voice.
- Candice's advice: Every project has the same principles - pattern, color, scale, etc. although every room is different (balance of windows? how much natural light?) And for most interiors, you typically start with a linear box. Work with the shape of this space by adding a balance of both linear and organic items.
- Candice's tips: A room should be a "visual novel of who you are". Pull imagery and ideas from magazines, catalogs, find restaurant decor and home clippings - examples of what you like as well as edit what you don't like.
How do you work with the shape of your space? And how have you defined your design voice for your home? Share your stories below and upload your home photos to the Apartment Therapy LA Flickr pool.
