Favourite Things - Week 12

It's been a little while since I've been over to Being Tazim for The Favourite Things Project. Interestingly this week is about Creative Pursuits.

For years I've always done something creative. Mainly sewing, but in recent years I have done some study and now have a Certificate IV in Colour & Design, a Diploma in Visual Arts - Surface Design (Textile and Homewares etc etc) and another in Colour Design (Residential and Commercial colour styling).

So for this week I thought I'd showcase some of my mood boards from the courses.

Waverton - A renovation. I won the Dulux Award for Creative Colour Application with this one in 2009.

These were from a last minute assignment we were given, also in the Colour Design course. My entry was one of the 10 finalists. The award was sponsored by Porters Paints. I called my range 'Tuscany' with a play on words for 'A House in Tuscany' and 'A Garden in Tuscany.

A Bar/Restaurant refit complete with samples of tiles, paint, fabric and wallpaper. Yes!! I used a Florence Broadhurst wallpaper. Well, what else did you think I'd use!

Lastly, a colour story for fabrics to be used for outdoor furniture. I was really happy with this board.

  1. Oh that are so cool & look at you with all your awards, fancy indeed. Congratulations. Sounds like you have great inspiration, love Posie

  2. I love these boards - much nicer than the ones I whipped out when I was taking design/decor courses!

  3. I love to create mood boards and have done a few in my interiors course too. Love the colours used in your boards - you really deserved that award, congratulations. One thing I would rather not do is choose colour - funny, but I'm more comfortable telling someone which wall to knock down!

    Thanks for your lovely comments on my blog. Look forward to your next post. Michelle


Thanks so much for stopping by. I value all comments. Hints & tips too, if you are happy to divulge them.
