Summer is approaching and I can get needed daylight hours to finish off some of my recent projects!
Spent some time with two great design students last week. See below examples of their design work and what they created at ReVamp Boutique. Essential design tools… sample boards were made
of their chosen scheme and designed our own fabrics using alcohol, premixed fabric dyes and free machine embroidery. I also wanted to involve them in a current project were I have chosen coronets to go over a bed and in the recess of Dormer French doors so we made mock up of this. And finally a visit to a local fabric outlet with beautiful silks
Getting excited about creating and embellishing furniture to give it a new life! Looking forward to keeping you informed about my ReVamps!
I’ve been meaning to share my thoughts of colour choices for a while as this is a big part of my design thread. I know I have a few ‘eyebrows raised’ when I ask " Can I please look in your wardrobe?" at a design meeting!
We may have a different dress code for work but casual dress, shoes and accessories have always given me a picture of how my clients like to be perceived. My design experience has been a very varied one, based around my love of fashion and interior design, now an amalgamation of all of them, but have always found that my clients subconsciously have likings to many colours which they enjoy wearing. These colour choices, have helped me produce sucessful schemes within my own and clients’ interiors as fashion and interior design exist side by side finding fabrics for interiors following catwalk choices. On a visit to Chelsea Harbour somebody noticed that my top I was wearing went perfectly with a fabric sample I was choosing and was interested to hear of my thoughts on wardrobe colour connection As designers we are responsible for finding our clients schemes that will make them feel comfortable, sometimes a relax and sometimes stimulate. By understanding the personality of the client instantly by looking in their wardrobe we can make those choices easier. Give it a go!
Its been a fantastic few days here in Croatia, weather has topped temperatures and we are now at 40 degrees in our sheltered position. Been busy visiting islands by boat so blogging has taken a back seat for a few days. Still amazed by the stillness of the Adriatic which lays before us but understand that the weather will be changing shortly. We have made the most of this and travelled across the mill pond to idylic islands and secluded bays. Today I have added inspirational ideas to my notebook signature designs. These will be in my autumn wardrobe and will be avaliable viewing on my Esty Boutique Vault shop for the Fall. Looking forward to receiving your feedback via twitter or facebook.

Just returned from a two day break to Dubrovnik..This city is buzzing with creative panache, with some of my favourite designers. Dubrovnik reminding me of my trips to Jerusalem 30 years ago with lots of very narrow streets full of brimming shops oozing delightful,designer buys! Food and entertainment was fantastic for all the family. My visit here every year re-charges my inspiration for photography and design, Always interested to hear from where you get your inspiration from.
