Minor project deadline is looming...

The 8weeks of my Minor project are nearly up, and although I still have one more design to play around with I have started to think about creating room setting ideas to display my prints as the furnishing fabrics they are intended to be. I wanted something that would give me a variety of products to work with like cushions, curtains and blinds so I went to the library and flicked through a few Elle Decorations, World of Interiors and Mix journals to see what I could find.
The images below are of the photocopied images I found with my prints added on in areas. I have done these by hand as I found it quicker and easier to see how they would look, but if I can get my head around doing it on Photoshop/Illustrator then I will do it digitally for a more professional finish.

Let me know what you think!
