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
