Busy Busy Bee.

I have missed blogging the past month! I have just been so busy working 12 hour shifts to get all the christmas displays out at work I just haven't had time. At least they have taken my mind off my recent break up with my boyfriend.. but that's a whole other story that I won't bore the world with. 

I have also been busy with my own private projects which I will be adding to my Interior Design Portfolio. I have been applying for a few stylist jobs recently.. which would be absolutely perfect for me..It is just taking time pulling all my work together to make me stand out. 

Thought I would post a few pics of recent projects and work projects I have been keeping myself busy with. Let me know any thoughts about my work :) will be very grateful!!

Bedroom Redesign*
I was approached by some family friends to re-design their spare room. Within the brief it had to match their country style but with no flowers. I chose mutual colours with a hint of gold. Theses are my first 2 designs. 

Example Luminar Stage Set design*
Well known Uk Artist Example was booked to do a uk tour within all Luminar clubs. I was approached to design the stage set and what inflatables will be used. A similar set would be used for the Calvin Harris Tour too, this was taken into consideration and images will be available soon.

Metallic's Moodboard

Copyright VBDesigns

This is a selection of key pieces I have found based on the Metallic trend. Key metallic pieces can add extra glamour and a contemporary edge to any space. My favourite piece is the Heart tin candle holder from Urban outfitters. It would look perfect in any interior 


Design Inspiration 1

Architect Gary Chang, based in the very busy city of Hong kong completely transformed his apartment into an eco friendly, 24 roomed home which is situated in a 344 sq.ft. apartment. He had so many people living in his apartment that he saw potential to change. The apartment is designed so walls can move and reveal separate rooms behind situated between 2 metre wide spaces. From a book case which will change into a wardrobe, transforming into a bath and then a bedroom area, it is the perfect functional space. To create a warm feel he has tinted the windows to make the room feel warm, so even rainy weather brightens his mood. With the use of mirrors on the ceiling, it dramatically increases the light value within the room. It is a truly amazing concept in the use of space, which I believe his design could potentially change the way we live.

Whilst off uni looking for a job. I have been sorting out my room and getting rid of my old college and uni stuff I no longer need. I've actually really enjoyed it as I like being organsied, and I ended up buying a new desk. I am very room proud and love it to be clean and tidy all the time. I have kind of changed it into a dressing table as well :)

Making Pictures

 After looking for new jobs I decided to make a picture frame for my bedroom. As I have a scrabble ring which I LOVE, I thought I could add some letters to my picture frame

Graduated :)

I am very pleased to say, I graduated last week and it went really well. I found out I got a first, which I was apparently predicted, and I am over the moon! :) Also received an award for 'the student who has made the most progress in interior design' and I received a £50 book voucher for waterstones which was unexpected, but I am delighted! 
I decided to wear a simple black shirt dress, with black heals. I am pleased to say I didn't fall on stage like expected and it all went well. I am updating my portfolio at the moment and will soon be applying for jobs. My website seems to be taking me forever but it's looking good. I will post the link on here when it is all completed.

Went to birmingham last week for my best friends 21st. I don't get to see her alot cos we are both busy with uni but Had a lovely time, and she jetted off to Paris at 4am in the morning having had no sleep and being slightly tipsy. Was a birthday prezzi from her boyfriend :) I managed to get her a Thomas Sabo black beaded bracelet that I adore, but couldn't afford any charms for. Luckily she managed to get an Eiffel tower charm in paris on her visit. 

Packing today for my holiday :) as I am jetting off to Turkey in the morning! 

Feel free to follow my blog. I don't bite and im new to all this.

Final year exhibition :)

New to Blogging

I thought a good thing to do, now I have more time on my hands after finishing uni, would be to start up my own blog about influences, my travels and my life. When i finally find out how to use this I will be blogging a lot more. 

The image is of my final, end of year Interior design exhibition. My project was based on a children's portable health exhibition experience which I designed, developed and made into a final concept. I had endless amounts of positive feedback at the exhibition which was wonderful. After finding out my final grades yesterday I am very very pleased, and once its official I shall tell the world, because i am so so proud after all that hard work and long hours at uni, it all paid off. 

I doubt anyone will read this but I have more to come :)
