Well I had a pretty good week! As mentioned earlier, I returned to school this week to take two Interior Design classes. One of them is a history course which, while history isn’t currently a huge interest of mine, I do look forward to gaining a better understanding of period styles and the terminology associated with them. The other class has a broader focus on housing and home furnishings in general and a big part of the class will be spent learning to design and draft interiors. I had no idea going into it that we would be drafting, but I think it’s going to be a great skill to explore and obviously is something important to learn if I ever intend to be a designer.
While in school, I will probably be posting with slightly less frequency. Perhaps 2 or 3 times a week. I don’t want to disappear altogether but schoolwork is definitely going to be the priority. Because I want to learn! Weird, right?
A lovely cut-out architectural detail in this wall creates the perfect place for a bed. From Lonny Mag May/June 2011, designed by Todd Alexander Romano.
The furniture in this room is way more traditional than I usually go for, but there’s a lot of more current trends being utilized that warm me up to it. In particular the arm chair closest to the camera is upholstered in a cute and simple striped pattern, and the bright canary yellow chair to the left of the bed. These upholstery choices really liven up the place and bring it into the 21st century. As a side note, have you ever seen such high gloss walls? Like whoa. Via My Favorite and My Best.
The Oriental style wall decoration would not be my first choice, but it certainly does create a lovely and warm backdrop. I love the color choices on the bed. From Vogue Living Jan/Feb 2012, designed by Patricia Stewart, photographed by Petrina Tinslay, found via My White Room.
Guh! This is stunning. Photographed beautifully, this all white room reads as cozy and soft. I dig the look of fabrics draped on the floor, however impractical they may be. The London home of designer Kelly Hoppen via Design Field Notes.
A good use of contrast and color. I’m not a big fan of faux bamboo furniture but that little yellow nightstand is pretty cute. Photographed by Donna Griffith via Style at Home.
