MMR Interior

Have your heard of Melissa Rufty, and MMR Interiors? I had their firm saved in my favourites for quite some time, but this morning had the need to render one of her interiors on the spot. I used kind of a heavy hand on this one, but it’s fun to experiment with colour, line and shadow.

Here is one of her stunning projects…don’t you think her use of colour is amazing?

I would love to go back now that I see the rendering, and give one side of the greyed legs on the green chair a dark line to separate the legs from the chair shadow.

I would also, go back with the most vibrant yellow I have, and darken the curtains above the arch of light, and all of the other panels, leaving some white and grey. I’d like to straighten the legs of the round table, since it seems a bit askew.

I am so envious of your talent (and I mean this in a very good way). Your renderings have such charm. I admire your ability to experiment without fear.
The legs on the round table are perfect. They need no correction and provide charm to your artwork.
