I’ve recently taken an interest in typography. Check it out!
Sneak peak of my interior design article featured in the next issue of VIM magazine…
You can [interior] design
When moving into a new space or just living in your current one, chances are you’re intimidated on how to make it look like your own. Chances are also that your closet can be a great source of inspiration. Take a closer look at your wardrobe; your favorite pieces are organized in a particular way – whether they’re in the center of your closet, in your second drawer, or laid out because you can’t fathom putting them away. These pieces are your go-to items that you should grab inspiration from for the rest of your space.
Color is of utmost importance to add a kick of flavor to your room.
ADVICE? Be careful! Don’t jump to painting a room or choosing a bright colored chair. Take your time with trial and error. Stick to your favorite color and its compliment on the color wheel. If you’re afraid of color, try experimenting with texture.
SMALL SPACE? Use mainly neutrals with pops of your favorite colors. Cooler colors are generally used in relaxation spaces, and warmer colors work well in places where there should be interaction and energy.
Pattern gives a space immediate personality.
ADVICE? Mixing patterns can appear intimidating. Just make sure you mix different scales and types.
SMALL SPACE? Add few small-scaled patterns in order to make your space feel larger.
Textures are crucial to adding a subtle dimension to any room. Adding it is an easy way to make your space look and feel finished.
ADVICE? Don’t be afraid of texture! It is easy to make a room more interesting by mixing and matching texture weights.
SMALL SPACE? Add textures that are smooth, reflect light, and feel lighter.
Hand rendering is such an art. I understand finding perspective and height lines via CAD during design development. From there I prefer a mixture of colored pencil and watercolor or marker. Hand renderings are so personal and unique. I am going to make sure to always keep up with this skill!
Mid-Century Modern. Perfect for practical everyday living. Notice the horizontal lines, unique organic lighting, etc. Ahh…pure perfection.
Here is a quick photoshop renovation I did as inspiration for my upcoming project:
Project Title: Temple Museum of Art
Spaces: A museum shop, classroom, gallery (several), cafe, and art market (past exhibits for sale)
Originally a church, and most recently a night club.
