This How Do You Vastu? Entry was sent in by Misty Gray, a BFA candidate for Interior Design at GWU. She is also a student of the NEWH (the Hospitality Industry Network) and a student at the Art Institute of Design. Misty’s design scheme is beautifully put together and portrays a sense of mid century design. The way she juxtaposed the organic shape of Vastu’s Harmony sofa against the geometric shape of the Lexington bookcase and Rodin & Pau coffee table is very effective and creates an aesthetically pleasing space. Thank you Misty for showing us How You Vastu!
This How Do You Vastu? entry was sent in by Jeni Heninger, a MFA candidate of interior design at GWU. Jeni used bright pops of color and pattern in her walls and flooring to give her space energy and a sense of whimsy. Mixing patterns and colors like this is daring, but Jeni did it quite effortlessly by pairing them with classic, simple pieces with clean lines, such as the Isaac Sofa and the Knoll D’Urso Swivel chair. Thank you Jeni for showing us How You Vastu!
This How Do You Vastu? entry was sent in by Sara Zoumbaris, a first year interior design student at GWU. Sara has used some of Vastu’s classic bedroom furniture pieces and has mixed them with a bold rug, a giraffe wall graphic, and some industrial lighting to create a beautiful bedroom with a hint of exotic flair. The brown earth tones mixed with the subtle pops of blue and green make the design feel serene and relaxing… what more could a person ask for in a bedroom!? Thank you Sara for showing us How You Vastu!
This How Do You Vastu? Entry was sent in by GWU Interior Design graduate student Tiffanni Reidy. She used some of Vastu’s most vibrant and colorful pieces to create a beautiful living room scheme that anyone with a flair for design would appreciate spending time in. The Ecosmart fireplace and variety of rich textures make the design so cozy and appealing that I am sure nobody would ever want to leave! Thank you Tiffanni for showing us How You Vastu!
This How Do You Vastu? entry was sent in by Soha Omar, a MFA candidate of interior design at GWU. Soha’s living room design scheme works so well due to the use of the complementary colors blue and orange. The gray, blue tone in the rug, table lamps, and artwork really help to make the vibrant orange color in the Steven Anthony Columbia Sofa stand out. Contrasting opposite colors in a design will always help to make your space more visually appealing. Sohas contemporary living room is a great example of this. Thank you Soha for showing us How You Vastu!
How Do You Vastu?
We have asked designers and design students in the DC area to show us how they would use pieces from the Vastu to create beautifully designed spaces. We hope that their creative ideas and visions will inspire some of your own!
Above is a design example created by a Vastu team member. The neutral palette and variety of textures creates a very comfortable, yet glamorous look.
Check in every Wednesday to see how DC designers and design students Vastu!
