The making of “coziness” – luxury bedroom

Share with friends..


The beginning of this project was the moment when we decided to make a warm space with a perfect blend of contemporary architecture and antique accents.

Final rendering of the bedroom


It started with a rough sketch of the space required from a luxury apartment. The aim was to design and visualize a homely space without sparing simplistic details. Views were also important to buttress the cozy atmosphere.

Design software used was Autodesk 3Dsmax and the render engine was Chaos group’s Vray

The Modelling

The major modelling technique used was box modelling. The skeletal frame of the bedroom is concealed by the glazing from the exterior. The slant wall was a feature in the entire building.

The loft tool was used to make the skirting and cornice trims from profiles swept along paths. Vertices were further welded to complete the difficult ends.

Scene lighting & Camera settings

The basic types of lighting used were vray dome and vray sun lights in addition to vray cameras tweaked and test-rendered to give a warm and ambient solution. Vray planes were placed in the ceiling recesses to accentuate incident lighting. A mild sphere placed in the centre of the room was used to calculate the vray camera’s white balance. See the camera and light settings below

Scene population & Material application

The scene was further populated with interior furnishing. Materials, textures and colors were toned to conform with the desired mood in response to the chosen lighting scheme.
