Decorating For China

I recently got a long distance client, and in long distance I mean Bejing, China of all places.

I had only one request from the client actually and that was they wanted a reward/picture wall, which I call a "Hero Wall".

I thought the bones of the lobby were nice already, just a little cold.  So I thought incorporating the 5 traditional Chinese elements could be a nice way to create something warm and inviting for this space....Water; Wood; Fire; Earth; Metal.

So here are the pictures of the space before and my drawings of what I have proposed...




And here is the other end of the lobby...



I wouldn't mind waiting in this lobby now would you?

That's really cool. I'm always amazed how you can warm up a room with just a few touches here and there.

Always love your designs - but this really "humanizes" and warms the techno - coldness of the lobby and makes one feel welcome and calm!! Wonderful work!
