Kari's Rendering



Above, design student Kari Fisher's marker and colored pencil rendering of the beautiful (and apparently very popular) loft decorated by Sara Ruffin Costello in a palette of sea-foam blue, split-pea green, chocolate and maize yellow. Below is Paul Costello's original photo of the room, from Domino's archives.



Talented Kari Fisher, a graduate student at Florida State University, sent me this amazing rendering of one of my all-time favorite interiors: the Costello living room. Of course I had to share it. Isn't it spot-on?

Kari can be reached at karilynnfisher@yahoo.com.

What a wonderful talent and a great find. I think she will be very successful. I love that art of hand rendering. It seems to have faded out in recent time with the advent of computer generated drawings. In design school we had to render all our projects in watercolor and there is nothing like the atmosphere it gives to a room. Thanks for sharing this talented Kari
