Lattes & Renderings with A Schematic Life

By 05/19/2009January 26th, 201714 Comments

Michelle Morelan from A Schematic Life and I met for a latte last week and she surprised me with this drawing of a room I designed for one of my lovely clients (see the rest of the space here).

Here’s the actual image below.    A few months ago, Michelle drew a villa I rented while in Provence  see that post here.  Michelle is an interior designer as well as an artist and I am so lucky to be a part of her circle!

I featured this apartment the first month I started blogging because I had just finished my website and wrote a post about styling for photo shoots and why it’s a good idea to hire a professional photographer (if you need images for your website!).

I’m so thrilled to be a part of ‘A Schematic Life’s’ rendering collection!

    I remember that room!! It’s fabulous!! And Michelle’s rendering is just as nice — what a great surprise for you 🙂

    Maria– I went back and read the post about styling for photo shoots. I like how you interweave business tips and experience with your color posts, such as Why Blogging is Good for Your Career, and Should you pay for a room to be re-painted? They are mini tutorials, and I love reading them.

    Lovely rendering!!! Such an advantage to have good illustrations for clients!

  • Struggler says:

    I’m wondering, will you keep it, or will you give it to the client as a gift? I can see value in both tactics!

  • Meade Design Group says:

    Maria there is your header right there. You just need to imprint your name there. That rendering is amazing and it is your work.

  • Lauren says:

    Hi Maria
    Great design you did for that room and now it is immortalized in Michelle’s wonderful rendering. Maybe one day it will be hanging in a Gallery on a retrospective of her work and yours.
