Distracted by Design – My 100th Post…

Yeewww…. I have made it to 100 posts!
What a year it has been – starting my dream job at Indesign, moving out…then moving back in, completing my Interior Design Cert III, kicking soccer goals, finding some beautiful new friends & continuing to love old ones, a dose of 808 heartbreak. ..oh & a new nickname…they call me – ‘Brown Sugar’.
I have defs been keepin’ it real…
One thing that has remained a constant through such tumulous times has been…. my family.
I love them & would honestly be lost with out each one of them. My crazy ‘abstract’ mother who ‘just gets’ me (I have inherited so many of her traits), my accountant father – who always tells it to me straight – no bullsh*t and ofcourse my sisters – one who just always has my back and the other who keeps me inspired by her travels.
They keep me sane. They keep me grounded. Blood.

Whilst this may seem narcissistic and somewhat selfish – In celebration of this year of my life (I shall call it my year of self-evolution)…I have picked my favourite images which truly reflect my own design style. Interiors, objects, spaces which inspire me, stimulate my senses & offer me an escape from reality.

A constant theme amongst these images seem to a global, ethnic and eclectic design style. I love rich colours, handmade textiles and unique cultural artefacts.

My mantra:

Everything thing happens for a reason. Don’t try and control things…just go with the flow.
