Working with color rules in interior design on coming show


June 3, 2018

Information on creating space with pattern and wood burning celtic knots will be the featured topics on “Creative Living” on Tuesday at 9:30 p.m. and on Thursday at noon. (All times are Mountain.)

Interior designers Katie Schroder and Erika Rundiks will talk about how to create a space with pattern, especially using layers with patterns. They will demonstrate using different scales of patterns, such as stripes, organic and geometric shapes. They’re in Denver, Colorado.

Artist and author Jo Schwartz will show how to wood burn celtic knots. She’ll talk about how to prepare the wood and how to use a pattern with graphite paper. This process involves leaning or tilting the work as you burn and it’s done in layers. She’ll also demonstrate her “smooth shading technique.” Schwartz is from Abilene, Kansas.

Information on interior design, making craft projects, and child-proofing cords on Roman Shades will be the featured topics on “Creative Living” on Tuesday at noon and on Saturday at 2 p.m.

Lacy Jones will explain how to use a 60-30-10 rule which prevents the use of too many or too few colors in a room. She previously worked as a visual coordinator in Lubbock.

Judy Novella is in Danbury, Connecticut. She’s going to show how to make two stuffed projects — sockie snow people and an embossed velvet pillow — and both use products from Fairfield, including Poly-fil, poly-pellets and Soft-Touch.

Terrell Sundermann will give a brief overview of the latest Roman shade safety standards, and then show how to child-proof the exposed cords on the back of a Roman shade. She’s from Castle Rock, Colorado.

Interior design projects

Every project is an opportunity to integrate lifestyle, functional requirements and personal aesthetics with well-executed design principles. Follow these tips for success with your future projects:

Space analysis: Understanding possibilities, ideas and goals, functionality of area.

Visual: Reviewing photos to understand the desired aesthetic, functionality, budget, scope and schedule of project.

Creation of design concept: This is when the fun begins. You, or the designer on your project and a behind-the-scenes team of magic-workers, start putting together all of the pieces of your project to make it come together seamlessly and fabulously.

The design concept process includes:

Gathering of conceptual ideas such as finish selections, colors, fabrics, furniture and lighting specification sheets. Preparing technical drawings if needed to implement your design and properly communicate the intentions to the various installers. Refining schemes and finalizing the design plan. General pricing of products.

Purchasing: Utilizing necessary experts in the design field to achieve final goals. This could include contractors, wallpaper installers, painters, window treatment experts, electricians, tile installers, carpenters and others.

Project completion: Finishing touches, art and accessories.

“Creative Living” is produced and hosted by Sheryl Borden. The show is carried by more than 118 PBS stations in the United States, Canada, Guam and Puerto Rico and is distributed by Westlink, Albuquerque.
