Through step-by-step illustrations, Diana Kingsley draws on her professional and academic experience to show readers how to create beautiful detailed interior design drawings to share with clients, with detailed examples showing how to render furniture, floors, walls, windows, plants in floor plans and elevations, using only drafting pencils, a T-square and a triangle. Instead of unattractive plain boxes for furniture, the reader will learn to define them with handsome detail. Beginning with instructions on how to line up a T-square on the paper, to easily set up and work on any drafting board and covering how to properly use tracing paper layering to expand design ideas, all the way through to completion of the little pieces of art representing design ideas and concepts. The new edition builds on the success of the first edition, expanding the coverage of elevations by adding use of gray-tones for additional depth, adding new material on exterior and landscaping, and generally enhancing the content and drawings that make up the book's substance.

The interior designer's guide to effective hand drafting The kinesthetic act of completing a manually drafted drawing gives interior designers a greater understanding of the space they're designing, time to reflect on their work, and the skills needed to quickly draw freehand for presentations and design concept developments. Manual Drafting for Interiors is an essential reference for interior designers learning how to manually draft scaled floor plans, elevations, sections, and three-dimensional drawings. Clearly explaining techniques and methods, it begins with an explanation of drafting tools and their various uses, and then presents instructions and illustrations that indicate how to complete increasingly more difficult drafting conventions. Additionally, readers will learn drawing techniques for indicating various materials, symbols for coordinating related drawings, and architectural lettering. Complemented with extensive drawings, inspiring examples, and tips for developing your own style of graphic expression, Manual Drafting for Interiors arms readers with essential skills they'll use throughout their career as a designer.
