So, having managed to do absolutely no work for the best part of two weeks, either because I was at the events or glued to the TV watching everything from Athletics to the Modern Pentathlon (???), I was absolutely gutted when it all came to an end… in fact, I even shed a tear when the flame was extinguished… and that’s not because I was really, really confused about whether the closing ceremony was absolutely hopeless or the defining work of a mad genius… Anyway, the Olympics (part one) is over and it’s back to the humdrum of everyday existence… well, that’s what I thought… until Davy told me he had booked us a last minute summer holiday to the Maldives. And believe me gentlemen, that’s the sort of earth shattering announcement that gets women everywhere thinking about clothes shopping… So, as the long forgotten cauldron slowly cools, I have been frantically looking for inspiration for my summer ‘water villa on stilts’ wardrobe – whilst looking on the Worldwide Interweb I came across the image below and I just loved the vibrancy of the colours… and, as this wonderful find coincided with thinking about a topic for my blog, I thought I would take the opportunity to share it with you.
From time to time I come back to a design fundamental – concept images. It has been a few months since I last got on my soapbox about them, but given that they are such an important element of the design process I wanted to remind you about them one more time (well, until the next time…). It’s super simple… if you find an image that you love, explore whether you could apply the colour palette to create a space that works in your home. I can guarantee you that if the colours work in the image they will almost certainly be able to provide the necessary inspiration and basis for the design of an interior space in your home…
