Visiting my first Kitchen I designed

It has been amazing and I’ve loved every minute of it so far!   I’ve met so many different people who I have designed for, however these things do take a bit of time and it’s only now that their dream kitchens are becoming a reality!   A couple of weeks ago I gotRead more

Domestic Living: Lloyd’s Residence

Hello again my lovely readers! I thought I’d share with you another project I was lucky enough to do as part of my course, and that’s the open plan living area for the Lloyd’s family.

The café will be hypothetically placed in the existing new Deli caféRead more

Blendworth: Heritage

On my course, I have been given lots of opportunities to work with live clients. One of these opportunities was to design a textile and wallpaper collection based on the theme of Heritage for a surface design company called Blendworth. This meant I got to visit Blendworth. This was very interesting and insightful, and I got to have a sneak peek at their newest collection before it was revealed for Spring/Summer 2016. Heritage is such a large and diverse subject, from stately homesRead more
