A beautiful home












I found Courtney Cox's beautiful home by accident yesterday when I went searching for something completely different to help me with my assignment.  I am in-love with this home.  I just love how homey it is and the neutral colour scheme.  I probably have over done the photo's but if you would like to see more click here

I had to submit part of my assignment for design last week, I am feeling very anxious this week, I have hardly slept just thinking over and over about my course and how hard it is to draught.  Oh I hope I have passed so I can sleep tonight.

Happy Wednesday!

At Design School we have been give four briefs we choose one of these briefs to create and design.  I chose to do a Penthouse.  What I have to design and decorate is a foyer, kitchen, lounge, dining room.  We have to be extremely creative and there in no budget.  I am creating a foyer where you walk on stone over water.  The lounge room has a fire pit and a semi curcular sunken lounge.  The kitchen has a rounded edge bench with I think Calcutta Marble splash back, I am not quite sure. 

I can't believe how much time it is taking to actually draw the plans.  We have to do the floor plan, electrical and ceiling drawings and next week we are learning to draw elevations.  It is overwhelming but I am thoroughly enjoying it.

The above samples I chose today is to create cushions for the sunken lounge and upholstery for the dining chairs.  I have gone way out of my comfort zone, but am trying to create a 60's style.  Has anyone seen the movie "The Party" starring Peter Sellers, alot of my ideas have come from that movie.  I just loved the movie, if you have not seen it, I highly recommend it, it is extremely funny.

I have not read many blogs this week as I really have been busy working and studying, I will catch up on the weekend.  I miss you!

Have a lovely weekend!
