Every designer has his own style. Some prefer to keep up with the times and adopt a modern/contemporary style, others enjoy to reminisce about the past and prefer something vintage or rustic while others get creative and combine styles to create their own. For photographers it’s almost the same thing expect that they get to choose something that someone else already created. For Marianne Cotterill it’s difficult to say which is the predominant influence.
If we analyze some of her creations we’ll see that there’s a tendency for opulence. Some of these interiors are almost overly decorated. They have a unique charm and they feature more accent features than the eye can follow. Antique details and decorations are highly appreciated. Of course, it’s all done with measure. It’s why the color palettes are restrained to one or maybe two shades.
There are also some more modern examples. But even in these cases it’s not the typical contemporary style that we’re used with. It’s still a mix of old and new and there are still elements that are either traditional or vintage. It’s an unusual combination of styles and the result is a unique new direction. Some of these interiors are bold and colorful while others are quite contrasting. But what they all have in common is style, charm and elegance.
