A well known historical painting with familiar imagery and unique quality of light is used as a base reference for the design. I analyzed Edward Hopper's painting, Rooms by the Sea, 1951.

Color adjacencies

Inspired by the painting, a color palette is extracted from the painting. Relevant colors from the visual and emotional assessment are selected to create these color strips. 

The palette is further simplified with selected colors for the rug and a set of color adjacencies are created with these few colors. The set of color adjacencies represent adjacent colors in the painting and used to study color and light relationships.

Color play

Using the color adjacencies, shapes, light quality, etc, the essence of the painting is interpreted in different sketches and modules. These sketches are made keeping in mind the specifications and process of a rug design

A module that best represents the light quality of this painting is selected. The module is further modified to create variations. These variations are designed to look and feel like a rug

The Vis 

Living room

The final rug design is inspired by the painting, Rooms by the sea, Edward Hopper. 

It is a play between light and colors, the essence of the painting. This rug is designed for a residential application.

The name of this rug comes from a place called Vis in Croatia. The setting is similar to the one in the painting.
