SketchUp Models Vol II
I’ve had a little rummage in my ever expanding (and slightly out of control) SketchUp folder on my trusty laptop and have a few little gems for anyone out there who may be interested.
Urban Design Is King
I’m a fan of urban, contemporary design that includes industrial inspired elements, with a little bit of vintage thrown in for good measure. If you’ve been unfortunate enough to read a number of my posts, then you will have cottoned onto this pretty quickly. I adore the raw simplicity of urban design. How […]
My First Guest Post – Autumn Styling
I recently collaborated with fellow blogger, Emily May, where we worked together to create a fabulous Autumn inspired interior.
Designer Spotlight – Abigail Ryan Homewares
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.
The Art of Displaying Your ‘Stuff’
Let’s take a look at how you should be displaying your worldly goods, shall we? By following these tips, you would STILL be able to make random purchases from a Charity shop (while blindfolded) look good.
BHS Is Getting Its Freak On!
I’m thinking that maybe there’s been a huge shake-up in the management structure or something because there’s been some pretty drastic restyling within BHS…and it’s all good!
Oops, I Did It Again…
I like words. And consequently, I like letters. So it should come as no surprise that I like incorporating letters into the design of my personal space.
Sex and the City Challenge
I’m such a devoted follower of Carrie’s fictional greatness, that I was extremely amused and secretly chuffed when my friends drew comparisons between her life and mine, with the purchase of a desk for my city centre apartment.
Period Property Photoshop Overhaul
I came across some pretty awesome photographs uploaded by a fellow Designer and when I clapped eyes on them I couldn’t resist doing a little bit of tweaking to exaggerate their vintage and extremely characterful properties.
Sinking One’s Teeth Into ‘Real World’
When fate comes a knockin’…
Vintage Vases: They’re Hot, Hot, Hot!
I’ve been doing a little bit of internet trawling in an attempt to gleam whatever inspiration I can for the current design scheme that I’m putting together. I’m talkin’ decorative accessories, here.
Get Your Font Out!
I’m studying design, right? And that means I’m also interested in presentation techniques in general, from a graphic design point of view. So why on earth have I only recently become aware of the fact that there are zillions of fonts available online, that can be downloaded FOR FREE!!!! I’m so annoyed with myself, right now! My days of sticking to […]
The Secret Life of the Desk
I recently acquired a new desk. This was an important purchase for a few reasons: I was starting to suffer from Repetitive Strain Injury, yes, yes very funny but seriously it ain’t a pleasant feeling. One afternoon, after having spent all day on my laptop (from the comfort of my sofa) the index finger of my […]
Design – It Isn’t Just Aesthetics
I’ve become acutely aware that not everyone shares my keen interest in and enthusiasm for all things interior design related.
A Little Trip to the Dark Side
Educational establishments should put a disclaimer on all of their Interior Design courses. Before I embarked on my current journey of discovery I thought I was confident in what I liked and didn’t like, and for good reason. I was a fundamental fan of the neutrals family. Beige? Loved it. Taupe? It gave me goose bumps. Glorious shades of […]
A few before and afters
Originally posted on Abigail Ahern:
I love before and afters. We all procrastinate a little too much I reckon (me included trust me) dithering around about whether to change up a room or not. Panicking it might not work out but you know what just do it. I’ve been over on the forum for the…
1 Year Anniversary – It’s Top 5 Time
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 […]
