Orange and Grey

It's been a while since my last post as working full time has left me with little time to play (boo hoo!!).  With all the hype of Christmas and clearance sales now behind me, I feel like I need a recharge and what better way to do it than with colour.  I love orange for the instant uplifting feeling you get from this happy colour.  I like to tone it with grey for a sophisticated palate.  It's officially New Year's Eve now and I still have a lot of packing to do for my trip to Venus Bay to join my boys for a well earned break, so it's good bye for now and I wish you all a happy new year - may all your dreams come true in 2012 (make sure you dream big - if you don't ask, you won't get!) xx

My Last Three Assignments for The Year

Collage Board

Drawing Board

Digital Board

These are my last three mood boards for school this year.  Yippee - time for a break!  The assignment was to represent an interiors scheme through three different types of mood boards, collage, drawing and digital.  My inspiration for the scheme was the peacock feathers which feature in the colour scheme with the gorgeous blues and greens and through the repeated circular shapes in the sunburst mirror and side table detail.  The accent colours are gold and orange which lend a formality and some glamour to the scheme.  This was my first attempt at drawing and I've always said I'm not a natural drawer, but I did have lots of fun giving it a go.  My next subject is drawing and I'm looking forward to learning how to sketch a scheme - watch this space!
