A surprising morning !

Dear readers, as I am a subscriber of A SCHEMATIC LIFE, the blog from the interior designer Michelle Morelan, this morning I was reading my emails and what did I discover??? A post of Michelle with the title : Greet’s Office -The Video Tutorial .

I was so surprised and so happy with this rendering of my office, Michelle posted! Incredible to see how Michelle is making all those steps to realize this wonderful rendering! In fact I am always surprised by Michelle’s wonderful drawings and sketches! She is so talented.

For those who don’t know Michelle yet, please visit her blog A Schematic Life or visit her website Michelle Morelan Design.

If you are interested in this tutorial and you want to learn how to make a successful rendering, please watch the video of it! It is so interesting to learn more about chosing the right colours and shades, how to create shadows,…and so on!


The rendering Michelle made of my home office.


The picture of my office Michelle used for the rendering.


The video is even recorded in HD and you can watch it in full screen by clicking the arrows once you arrived at the video tape.



Dear Michelle, I want to thank you heartily for this beautiful rendering of my office! It means so much to me!

    Oh Greet, you are so welcome! I just love this room…well, I love all that you do, and felt I needed to draw it. I would love to deliver the original to you in the spring when I am in Amsterdam…it would be fun to meet 🙂

    Please pass my compliments on to your talented craftsman…you all prove that design is in the details:)

    Can't wait to see what you do next!

    How fun, Greet! I watched for an entire 15 minutes and 31 seconds and then it kind of stopped but I was totally mesmerized! I can't draw to save my life so I am in total awe of what Michelle can do with some paint pens. I loved listening to her. She is so calm, collected and interesting.

    And I smiled when she talked about the Dalmatian "making the room".

    And to think that this is your library, my friend!

    You must be so proud, I know I am!

    Love, Mon

    I loved watching her work and am amazed at her effortless talent!
    I hope she sends you a copy to frame and keep on your wall.

    Greet !
    Quelle surprise de voir votre bureau dessiné en direct par Michelle !
    La technique de mise en couleur avec les marqueurs est intéressante et donne un effet très spontané, pas mal !
