Decor inspiration

Right, the time has come to redecorate my home studio as I think it is a good way to keep the creative juices flowing (your surroundings are really important but even more so when you work in a creative job). I have looked in various places for inspiration and funnily enough, even through blue wouldn’t be a favourite colour of mine, I seem to be veering in that direction. I do like turquoise so I may incorporate that in some way as I think it’s a very invigorating colour. On the whole I would like a very minimalist and clean but comfortable look. Now, it’s just a case of getting the time to do it…ha ha ha.


A fresh new year

A happy, happy, happy new year to you all! We’ve been snowed in at home for the best part of 3 weeks and at last the thaw has reached us. We also spent a few days without water due to frozen pipes which has made me really appreciate the smaller things in life like being able to take a bubble filled bath. But today the sun was shining brightly and it was warm enough to have the windows open so things feel full of optimism. I love this time of year, it is a chance to start lots of new things and to promise yourself ┬áthat the year will be packed full of wonderful things and people. I thought I would show you some beautifully bright and optimistic photographs today from one of my favourite photographers, Ulf Huett Nilsson. His work is so fabulous, it makes you happy just looking at it. I would absolutely love to use some of his photographs in a graphic design project but it costs over 500 euros to use one picture and I’m not sure if my clients would be open to that!! Never mind, it is wonderful being able to just gaze at them and dream of spring days and summer evenings.
