Macquette for Living Room

Long ago, before personal computers, and before every student had one, and long before autocad, design schools such as Parsons would teach students to create something called a "macquette". This is a four sided elevation of a room, rendered in color. I really enjoyed my days at FIT, learning from the masters : Glenn Boyles, Albino Cimonetti, Stanley Barrows - all of whom had come from Parsons. Here is my recent macquette showing the new curtains I have ordered for my "petite salon" in Naples. You might wish to try this sometime as an exercise - it's very helpful to show clients as well.
