Sharing the passion with ISCD

Aww shucks. The team at ISCD (International School for Colour and Design) in Sydney have shared my story on their facebook page. It truly was a great time in my life when I explored the world of interior design with them. I met and learnt from an amazing group of like-minded people. Thanks a bunch. 

Here's the link to their facebook page or check out their website. http://www.iscd.edu.au/

Surf Lifestyle - The calming style

Surf lifestyle is more than just a decorating style or decorative items. It's also something with an intangible element that evokes a sense of calmness from memories of our treasured holidays by the sea.

We all love our beach holidays for all the goodness it brings to our life. The relaxation, the calm, the time to think, the laughter and the freedom to just be. So why shouldn't we try to have a little more of this every day rather than just a few weeks per year? 

Everyone will have a different idea of what surf lifestyle is about but here are a few images to help shape the way we could think about our homes.

Geelong Waterfront glamour twist

When I walk down the streets of any city, I see everyday people living everyday lives dressed in everyday clothes. Some do it in style. But most reserve their best look for the night, for "going out". These same people then put on their faces, add some colour to their lips, put on an eye-catching outfit, and are suddenly transformed. They walk down the same streets, but with a spring of excitement in their step. Anyone who sees them now, sees their glamorous side.

So, I was walking down the streets, the same streets, and I looked at the everyday architecture rather than the everyday people and I wondered whether these, too, could be as easily transformed. And then I would have "glamorous" designs created from the everyday locales where I live.

Here are my first three designer cushions which put a glamour twist on everyday scenes where I walk my dog.
