Ok, when I say ‘apartment’, I mean apartment reception area. And when I say ‘portholes’, I mean mirrors. But you know, same thing. Let me give you a little background. I live in an apartment building situated in Belfast city centre. At 279 ft it is Ireland’s tallest building and as such is the closest […]
As a 3D Visualiser from Northern Ireland, I clearly want Interior Designers from Northern Ireland to embrace this continually evolving visual tool and its numerous benefits, not only for my own growing business but also for their growing business . And to my disappointment, my client base in Northern Ireland continues to be non-existent.
When I come across homegrown talent (Designers from Northern Ireland), I like to spread the word and showcase their work on my blog. I believe, as a Designer, that it’s very important to show support to fellow creatives. This time, I’m focusing on the work of Belfast based Artist, Patrick Colhoun.
As a design geek, I’m always on the outlook for new and inspiring designs to feed my unwavering passion for interior design. I’ve sampled the delights of IKEA (read it here) and BHS (check it out) on my blog and now I’m turning my attention to a design duo that are much closer to home.
There’s no denying it. Photoshop is probably my most favourite acquisition at the minute. I, like a lot of people used to fear the word ‘Photoshop’. I blame Microsoft – we’re so used to the MS interface that when we’re shown something different we’re instantly intimidated by it. And when I heard about the term ‘layers’? What?? You […]
I’m always captivated by an inspirational sunset. Heck, most of us are but what about moody, broody and ever so slightly ‘dark’ ones? The ones that are less whimsical and more visually striking because of their slightly threatening appearance? I was sitting in my apartment (in Belfast city centre) minding my own business (for a change) when I […]
Unfortunately I’m very aware of the skill, patience and precision that is required to produce accurate technical drawings by hand. Whilst completing my Diploma in Interior Design I was required to learn the ‘art’ of technical drawing and I quickly learned that I wasn’t a fan of technical drawing the ‘old fashioned’ way. It was […]
I took a sharp intake of breath, slapped my face a few times, splashed some cold water on my chops, did a few warm-up stretches and then finally typed my first blog post nearly 1 year ago. 84 posts; 11 pages; 223 comments; 107 followers; 21,885 views and Anita Brown [Design Studio] is still going strong. As I […]
I’ve been working like a maniac on my current module and finally submitted it at 7am this morning, having worked all through the night to get it finished. I officially detest my degree studies. On a lighter note, I decided to upload one of the reports that I’m particularly proud of. It’s the result of many hours […]
These are a few photos that I took today to support my research of the Belfast Harbour Office (and in particular its ties to the Titanic). The interior of the original Drawing Offices at Harland & Wolff, where Titanic was designed (as they look today). And how they looked when in use by Harland & Wolff […]
