One of the things I love about The Book of Decorating from Domino is that there is a beautiful watercolor rendering of an interior on the title page to each chapter. I collect vintage watercolors and am always in awe of anyone who has mastered the techniques, especially John Gibson. John creates renderings for many top designers and architects so that they can show their clients what their space will look like when it's finished. Most non-creative types have a hard time visualizing which is why they hired a designer in the first place!
He will also create watercolors of finished interiors which he said is much easier. I have been thinking about commissioning him to paint a view of the bachelor pad since it's a rental and at some point will cease to exist. It would be nice to have a lasting memory that is much more special than just a photograph. Check out John's website for more beautiful watercolors!
