I love the abstract shapes and colours of “Water’s Light”. The painting Kati painted for us is exactly what we wanted. It’s “fresh and fun”! And the colours...compliment the history of our home while bringing modern in. It makes us feel peaceful and excited!”

A new light for family’s Mission Style living room

After devoting many years to building her business , raising children and experiencing life’s unexpected moments – I was grateful to be invited into Dierre Acheson's lovingly revitalized Mission Style home to discuss ideas for a custom painting. This master chef, owner, operator of her own gourmet food catering business – Never Enough Thyme Foode Shoppe - on the main street of their home town in Elmira, Ontario, Canada told me "2017 is the year “my family goes from chaos to calm.”

The Challenge - Living Room Hub for everyone to relax, play, watch TV

 The living room is the first room that opens to the left of their foyer entrance on the main floor. While there are spectacularly large bay and other windows in the open concept living and dining room, the porch verandah limits the light coming in. This combined with the grandeur of the dark wood accents found in the wall paneling, shelving, columns, flooring and furniture add to the darkness of the room.

As with every custom fine art project, I begin a three step process by visiting the client in their space and having a guided conversation. Unlike most art options on the market today, Kati Bujna Fine Art takes into consideration the whole environment - what can change, what can never change, and most important detail, "how does the client want to feel in this space?" 

Solution ideas - “Calm the space”

  • Introduce opposite materials to balance hard/dark/angles
  • Remove some of the repeating squares -remove overhead light fixture (in line of sight when you enter the room) and perhaps shelf or two on built ins (this could create tall rectangle shape and remove some of the picture frames) lighter metal
  • Introduce art that contains design elements that will “soften/lighten” space, water, curves, values and tones, colours that compliment the existing architectural elements
     

Art goals

  • Introduce “organic”/softer, no hard lines in the art
  • Make focal point that compliments space by adding colour from the “inspirations”
  • Blues are calming
  • Horizons are calming
  • Water curves/values/applications – are calming
     

Subject options:

  • Organic shapes from nature: trees
  • Rounded shapes from inspiration items
  • Style - water coloury, blended, no hard edges, using inspiration blue(s), complimenting wood colours
  • Not bold colours - unless drama wanted

Renovation Goals

Overview

  • Renovating living room lighting
  • Updating living room furniture/style to modern, streamlined

Room needs to accommodate

  • Play area for two children
  • Storage
  • Easier to maintain
  • Right scale of furniture to room (now too big, high quality, dark leather furniture set)
  • Too dark, need to lighten up

Architectural Features (things that can not change)

  • Mission Style, historic home
  • 2 Brick types, exposed
  • Wood types/colours - multiple
  • Wood features: column, built-in shelves, furniture, floors
  • Hard surfaces
  • Repeating 90 degree lines, squares, rectangles

Accessories (that can change)

Textures:
