As part of my Interior Design Diploma studies, I was required to examine and write a report on my understanding of colour theory. I’ve uploaded this report for my followers/readers as a useful point of reference.
How to Create a Digital Concept Board
I share my top tips when creating digital concept boards.
The Psychology of Colour
I was approached by an Interior Designer a few months ago to create two different sets of 3D visuals for the same space. You see, two different design schemes were being proposed and the Designer was curious to see how each individual design concept would look in a photo-real 3D visual.

When you strip back the pioneers of the creative and design industry you are left with individuals that embrace a certain level of escapism and the creative freedom to truly express themselves.

For this historical colour scheme I have taken inspiration from the Georgian era and used a colour palette of powder blue, soft chalky white and an earthy stone colour.
