The mountains inspired Tasnim’s Shabby Chic winning design that is located in Boulder, Colorado. Her design consists of a large arched window to allow natural light into the home and the color palette Tasnim chose was inspired by the colors of the mountains during winter. Tasnim is a senior Interior Design student at West Valley College and is a student member of the NKBA, ASID, and IIDA. She has been using Chief Architect for almost a year, and her favorite aspects about the program include the rending techniques and the available manufacturer catalogs in the 3D Library. Tasnim likes that she can generate different high-quality renderings quickly, and manufacturer cabinet catalogs have saved her a considerable amount of time during the design process.
