Christmas Card Challenge

Set Visions’ latest styling challenge was a festive treat from Ideal Standard UK. Having worked closely with them on several large interior CGI projects recently, we were asked if we would style the Armitage factory for this annual Christmas card. The brief was a Nordic theme but with the classic pointy ears and red boots!

One of our intrepid Interior Stylist spent the morning turning the industrial factory into a winter wonderland, with fairy lights, stars, and a twinkle in his eye. This has certainly got us into the holiday spirit and with Christmas Jumper Day looming we’re itching to take some Elfies!

Christmas Grrrrrreetings!

ChristmasBlog Dog cropped (RT)

Set Visions would like to wish you all an extremely Merry Christmas and cheers to a fantastic New Year. We couldn’t resist using Huey, our studio mascot, as the face of this year’s Christmas card in his very own CGI snow globe.

We are hugely excited for 2017. The next instalment of our Interior Trend Video Blog will kick us off in January, followed by the launch last of our Set Visions websites, completing our rebrand.

Our offices will be closing on Friday 23rd of December with the full team returning on Tuesday 3rd of January 2017. To keep update with all the news and goings on at HQ simply add your details to our mailing list. We’re now off to embrace the Hygge lifestyle- Although, we must remember; if we make CGI mince pies, we can’t eat them!

Trend Alert-Mixed Materials in the Kitchen

We've been championing the Mixed Materials Trend during 2016 in a lot of our Kitchen images and we believe this trend will only grow in strength during 2017. By bringing natural materials into our home we add a connection to a lifestyle that celebrates and embraces nature and its unique imperfections. Below are some of our favourite examples.

Surface design that mimics nature

The Stone Blue facia utilises the latest technology in surface design. The textured surface of the wood grain effect makes it a great solid wood replica with all the benefits of a laminate. This has been layered with tonal marble and cool greys for an elegant and refined look.

By using the textured Walnut facia in the industrial style kitchen, warmth has been added to the palette. The tactile mix of textured Walnut, embossed tin wall tiles with textured slate lends personality to the clutter free kitchen.

Exposing and unifying the look

The skylight in the Oak Shaker kitchen is divided by textured wooden beams and exposed sandstone, creating contrasts with the slick finish of the painted plaster. What we choose to expose and hide creates an interesting commentary for any contemporary kitchen.

Mixing materials doesn’t always require contrasting textures. The matt doors, matt walls and semi-matt floor tiles combine the same texture but still allow to stand out in the kitchen. The use of one grey hue ties the look together.

Jeepers Creepers

Here is a real-life horror story, team Set Vision’s transformation is eerily…normal. This terror of tails was created by our very own retouching department who took true delight in transforming our MDs! Quite a side step of their daily tasks of retouching our lifestyle photography and bespoke CGI designs. This family of true terrors wish you all a screamin’ Halloweeeeeeen!

The green scene VLOG

Welcome to our first Trend VLOG! Our lovely Head Photographic Stylist Nina chats through all things green, which is one of the big colour contenders over the last few seasons, from vibrant flashes to deep and moody hues.
Over the past year greens have been interpreted through the Botanical and Tropical Jungle trends, which have strongly rooted their way across interior and homeware design, fusing from contemporary to classic styling.

Bon Voyage Lass

It’s always hard to say goodbye but today is especially difficult as we wish Bon Voyage to Jal, our Head of Creative. Her enthusiastic input was relentless, constantly perusing interior design trends and delivering with great commercial judgement.

Jal’s off across the seas for new adventures in India, soaking up the cultural influences and exotic lifestyle.

Chris Heeley will step into her tiny size 4 shoes, leading our styling and creative CGI team. With over 20 photographic years in the KBB industry Chris is well known to a lot of our clients and as Set Visions' Art Director and MD his creative understandings and insights are second to none.

Jal

Wishing you all the best Jal from everyone at Set Visions. Don’t be a stranger!

Architectural Aesthetic

A challenge for Set Visions Imaging Studios from Boss Design: Could our stylists and CGI artists create a selection of large architectural CGI room sets to showcase Myriad, Boss Design’s new range of modular furniture?
Set 1 Island (MAIN) V3 (DOF)

We achieved this by defining each space with an architectural feature to provide scale, context and interest with minimal lifestyle propping to allow the Myriad furniture to remain the hero.

Set 2 Huddle (MAIN) V4 (DOF)

The images authentically communicate the versatility of the product in the real world context, and here at Set Visions we pride ourselves on creating those defining images which leap from the page and enable products to stand out from the competition.
