Design Crush: Jean Louis Denoit

It has been a crazy week with a few new and very exciting new jobs.  One of them is that I've just been asked by an incredible event planner in Vancouver, Brittany Wong of Bash & Fete to collaborate on a booth/table for Dinner x Design.  This event is an amazing charity gala in Vancouver that raises money for the Dr. Peter Aids Foundation.  One of the exciting things about this event besides having the opportunity to work for such an incredible cause is that many of the booths (more accurately described as dining rooms) will be displayed at IDS West in September, so if you're planning to attend keep an eye out for my design! Right now I'm in what is probably my favourite part of the design process: the concept phase.  This is the time when I can let my ideas run wild and get creative.  The trickiest part of this process is really narrowing down a direction, refining ideas, and practising some self restraint to make sure the result feels sophisticated, thoughtful and elegant (and not like a circus!)  This ability to use a wide range of colours textures and pieces and create a sense of peaceful cohesion is something on of my favourite designers Jean Louis Denoit  has no trouble doing.  When you look closely, you can see that he incorporates a number of different elements into his designs, but his spaces still flow so effortlessly without looking overdone.  Take a look at a few of my favourites and see what I mean…
