Kelsey M. Siddall INTERIOR DESIGN 2012


For as long as I can remember, my family has teased me for just “Showing up for life,” day by day. This may be interpreted as negative by most but influence and experience has proved otherwise. Taking life day by day has allowed me to remain adaptable to any situation that should arise. The other primary factor is family: my mom is a pharmacist, my dad was construction estimator and my brother studied mechanical engineering and is currently a pilot in the Navy. All very structured and practical, I’ve been the odd one out. However, being raised in an environment of practicality has balanced my flexibility and allows me to make sound decisions in my life and in my work. Louis Sullivan’s dictum, “Form follows function,” as cliché as it has become, was important in how I’ve developed my own style and viewpoint during my time in Design School because of the sharp contrast between the statement and the sculptural façades he created. To this day, in my mind, no design can be worthwhile if it does not serve its intended purpose. A beautiful design means nothing if it is unusable. So even as I work to create something beautiful, or intricate, or even clean and simple, my designs are always rooted in the question, “Will what I create serve the needs of those who will use it?”

This was an exercise in designing a fabric pattern and showing it being used in an everyday setting. This fabric pattern was done in Photoshop and Illustrator, with options of different color backgrounds and shown in use as a woven wall covering.

Shown here is an exercise meant to develop our skills in hand rendering by replicating an image from a magazine as closely as possible with marker and colored pencil.

In this project we were given the ground floor of an old car showroom to re-imagine as a casual restaurant in downtown Cincinnati. The parti I went ahead with was recreating a rustic setting, in this case a backyard garden, into the modern setting of the building. To accomplish this I used a combination of rustic and natural materials set against touches of highly modern materials. Shown: Original Image Strategy

The challenge of this project was to take a gutted historic building and create a functional onelevel apartment that would run the length of the building. The largest issue was that the building was very narrow and only had windows at either end, so we had to create comfortable spaces with very little natural light, along with working around a central elevator and stair shaft. My goal was to create an energetic space that remained open and inviting, despite being so narrow, but still had clearly separated areas. Shown here: The beginning process sketches

The layout was created by overlaying several shapes and generating a grid based off of the intersections. The floor materials change to reflect the dominant shape of each main area, and the grid used for the layout is emphasized by inlaid brass strips in the flooring. This plan incorporates all of the main living spaces requested by our “client”, and accomodates her desire for ample entertaining space and room for guests.

While at the VA, the other intern and I were tasked with choosing 5 accent wall colors that would become the new standards throughout the hospital for spaces such as offices or waiting rooms. Shown here is an image of the presentation board we created to showcase all of the standard materials, and the renderings I did as examples of what the accent walls would look like in an office setting.

Here I was tasked with choosing a destination accent wall for a clinic in the hospital along with new artwork to be ordered for the space. Clockwise from bottom left: A rendering of the space with the new accent color and artwork in place (the wall has since been painted); the original picture of the clinic; a detail of the materials used in the space; and the artwork chosen.

This was another clinic where I was tasked with selecting an accent wall color from the new standard color selection, and then again choosing new artwork to help define the space.

This was a group project, which involved turning a condemned Gothic church into a Rock Venue, Restaurant, and Music School. My partners for this project were Katie Barton and Lauren Burns, and our choice was to work collaboratively, but to each have one main area that we would make the final design decisions about. The scope of the project that I show here will be from my main area, the Venue portion. Project Logo, design by Katie Barton

Shown Left to Right: Plan of Third Floor/ Balcnoy Level; Plan of Second Floor/ Main Venue; Section of the Church showing the Main Venue Area & Restaurant Level Below. Venue Areas are my own renderings, floor plan compilations by Katie Barton.


Our goal in this design was to incorporate the idea of “reverberation� into each area in a distinct manner. In the venue it was shown through patterns radiating from the stage in each direction. The floor was done by sanding and staining the existing floor, which also served to delineate a seating pattern (shown in Main Venue floor plan, above). In the nave behind the stage, a plywood backdrop would be built with inset neon lights that would react to the music like an equalizer. Finally, there would be supended rings of light tubing above, curved to follow the shape of the ceiling and down the walls. The pattern was based on the idea of water droplets, but the rings are suspended at different levels from the ceiling to add depth and would literally reverberate slightly with the loudest parts of the music.

Shown Left to Right: Laid-back plan of the Venue Spcae, in order to display the full pattern; Detail model of Venue Space with wire modeling of how the suspended light system would look in the space.
