Have you noticed that when you are redecorating your home everything inspires you? I can’t stop thinking of different design ideas, products, textures, colours and so on. Everything is an inspiration!
For the past 10 months, I’ve been taking photos of everything that catches my eye, so I can use it later, remind myself where I’ve seen it and, frequently, look for a cheaper, thrifty alternative. Or even consider making it myself.
I can’t stop myself looking around and catching things with my phone camera.
Just to give you an example, I went to the business meeting in so cool and trendy London Shoreditch yesterday, and these are my finds:
Streetart. Steve and I collected lots of pictures of urban art over the years, from Banksy to El Bocho. From London through Berlin to Rio de Janeiro. New street artists emerge all the time. Why not to frame what you find and put it on your wall?
Offices of forward thinking companies like Future Foundation offer an inspiration as well as their furniture is sourced at the design-oriented retailers like Heal’s etc. . I love the wall design, the coat rack and the folk placemat.
Independent design stores such as SCP East. I couldn’t give it a miss; it was on my way home. I probably took 30 photos there, so don’t worry, I’ll share more of them with you in the nearest future. For now, my favourites in store: Terence Woodgate Josiah pendant lights and Eames chairs (I love them!!!).
