Here at Hadley Court, we love hand rendered drawings, like the one above by Georgia based Joan Borawski of Joan of Art, illustrating one of Leslie Hendrix Wood’s design schemes for an interior design client of hers in Midland, Texas.
The soft sweep of a fine brush, the bite of a colored pencil or marker into thick, textured paper, or the wash of watercolor on vellum. Just those words, here at Hadley Court, make us happy!
No matter what technique a rendering artist uses, a beautiful hand rendered drawing, evoking the details of an interior designers vision, is appreciated by every client to help them grasp the totality of a designer’s artistry in three dimensions, and a relationship with two or three different hand rendering artists is a must have in every interior designer’s toolkit.
From Joan’s portfolio on her site, you can see how talented she is by looking at these different hand renderings she’s created for many of Leslie’s fellow interior designer friends.
Another one of our favorites, here on Hadley Court, whose style is very different from Joan’s style, is Canada’s Michelle Morelan.
Michelle recently created the 2 renderings below, of rooms designed by John Saladino, inspired by a wonderful post on Joni Cohen Webb’s blog, Cote de Texas, here, all about the history of Mr. Saladino’s various decorating schemes.
A similar dining room, in real life, by John Saladino, an acknowledged master of architectural detail and proportion.
Aren’t these wonderful? You can see more of Michelle’s stylized renderings, here, on her site.
Another talented rendering artist is Jane Gianarelli, on the East Coast, near Washington, DC. Jane’s renderings have a playful, elegant flair, as you can see in this hand rendering she did for Erika Bonnell Interiors.
And lastly today, dear readers,we’d like to share with you the hand renderings and illustrations of Southern California’s Mari Robeson, of Mari Robeson Home, which are wonderfully colorful and pretty, yet also very different in style from the other 3 artists’ work shown above.
Mari has been creating exclusive, hand rendered cards and prints for various designers to give as gifts to their clients. You can see an example of this above that she created for designer, Hillary Thomas.
She is also currently working on illustrations for a new decor magazine that will debut soon. You can see more of her work on her instagram feed, here.
If you’re interested in seeing still more beautiful hand renderings, visit this post from last year, where we shared the work of Mimi Corsini Bland and John Goodman, two acknowledged masters in the field.
We hope you’ve been inspired by the artistic vision of these interior designers and how they work hand in hand to support the talents of the artists they hire to create an expressive, personal and exclusive evocation of your home.
These artists are an essential collaborator in the design process and part of every interior designer’s toolkit in their quest to provide you with a luxury experience that will forever become part of the story of how your family’s home was built and designed, and how every detail was considered.
