While nearing the end of my three year English with Creative Writing degree I decided to start a home-study diploma course in Professional Interior Design. I absolutely love this course and would highly recommend it to anyone unsure of how to begin studying interior design. I love the relaxed attitude of studying in my own time, and although I was worried about my motivation to get the work done on top of my degree it hasn’t been a problem so far. In fact, I enjoy it so much I’ve found I actually put more effort into doing wider research.
I thought I’d share a couple of the ‘inspiration boards’ I created for my last unit’s assessment. They’re by no means perfect but I already feel like I’ve improved a little from my first attempts!
This inspiration board was designed for a client with a large family who wanted a neutral colour scheme with pops of colour. They also holidayed in Morocco, so I couldn’t resist indulging my love of travel with this Moroccan themed interior board.For another task I was required to research a trend. I’ve been in love with the shabby chic trend ever since I got my bargain four poster bed at the age of sixteen, so what better way to indulge than create an inspiration board of some shabby chic items? Rachel Ashwell is an influential shabby chic designer, and all her pieces have a beautiful elegance to them. Keep watching for a review of her ‘Shabby Chic Inspirations’ book coming soon.
