Overview

The Beverley consists of 89 luxury homes by Cressey Development Group that targets downsizers with spacious rooms and high end finishes. Homes range from 1,047 – 1,289 sq.ft. Interior designers Insight Design Group commissioned artist Ellen Scobie to create a 40×40 inch artwork to be hung over the fireplace as a focal-point in the living room.

Goals

Commissioned artwork complemented the bespoke interiors.The goal was to feature a beautiful artwork that inspired the living area while working harmoniously with the established color palette. Golden tones through-out the artwork's dynamic composition radiate a warm glow.

Process

The designers were familiar with the artist's work and asked for an artwork to be customized for this space. The artist created a vibrant, mixed media canvas with many layers of transparent glazing to create a lustrous and luminous surface.
