Work Experience- Designers Guild Showroom (Kings Road)

Designers Guild is a Fabric & Wallpaper Store and has multiple showrooms around London. I worked at Designers Guild for 2 weeks and had the most exciting time. I spent majority of my first week in the sample room, ordering samples and assisting customers to find the samples they desire. I must admit, I became quite good at this, knowing exactly where all the fabrics were placed and becoming very familiar with the Fabric Codes.

Life In Italy!- A Video

So this has been long overdue, I came back from Italy just over two months ago and It was amazing. I was inspired, I met a lot of friends and I had the time of my life. Here is a short video which pretty much sums up my time there. Enjoy!

Last Post from the Life in Italy Series! Hope you loved every I did ;)

Inspiring Myself- London Galleries

One promise I made to myself at the beginning of this year was to try and do a lot more things that inspire me. I started the year half way through living in Florence, so it was very easy for me to keep my promise when the city alone is inspirational. Moving back to London has been great, I definitely missed the fast-paced life here; however, inspiration does not just come easily, you have to go and look for it. 

One of my child hood friends and I were talking and she told me I should come with her to visit some museums. I have lived in London for how many years, and there are some major places I haven't even visited yet. She took me to The Saatchi Gallery and the Victoria & Albert museum. 

One thing I find so captivating about visiting museums and galleries in general is the fact that there is such a peaceful vibe going in. Everything is open with a lot of light and the unbelievable art work is what really gets to me. Below I have left a few pictures of my time there.

Life In Italy!- Beach Day in Spiaggia Bianche

Now that classes are over and I have graduated from my Interior Design Masters Course (Woop Woop), my friends and I went to have a fun and relaxing day at a beach in Rosignano, Tuscany called Spiaggia Bianche- which means White Beach. The sand was in fact really white and the sea was beautiful and blue.

Fact Of The Day: It is so white because there is a factory behind it which produces bicarbonate and excess has been released into the sea. 

It was in fact a really fun day

Room of the Day! - Traditional Living Room

I absolutely adore this living room space. It uses a Traditional and Classic design style and has a Neutral/ Pale colour scheme with a dash of rich gold to really bring out the inner beauty of the room.

 Although there a numerous patterns (on the area rug, sofa and chairs) there is still a clear balance as the patterns are added in a subtle way, and the walls are contrasting them by being more simple.

I really love this room and believe it is well designed.
(Love the furniture pieces too :))

Life in Italy! Viareggio Carnival!

Viareggio is a city in Northern Tuscany located near Lucca! Every year there is a carnival with a huge parade and floats!  I went with my friends from school and we wore masks and had the time of our lives lol. A beach was conveniently nearby where we went to chill once we had watched the parade go round.

Hi Everyone!! One of my family members asked me to redecorate her room. All she said she wanted was a theme of red, black and white! So I took measurements of her room, came up with a concept, board which she loved and did 3D renders of it.
