Roomaking II

Tomorrow I am going to discuss with my design class "rule-making in room-making". I think of room as three layers, the architectural layer-walls ceiling, floors, openings. The furniture layer which is a built-in condition as well as a piece of furniture and than the object layer. I like to make rules with color. In this brownstone project that we did a number of years ago, we painted the interior of the library this very special calming blue-than used the blue as in the furniture layer of the next room and than the object layer were a series of grays and browns from the early american furniture to the Maine rock collection displayed on the cabinet. The base of the architectural layer in the main parlor was a color called mayonaisse.
