Did you know that interior styling can impact the way you feel in a space?

Have you ever felt happy in an interior or the opposite sad or depressed? How do you feel in the rooms in your home? Are you and your family or visiting friends feeling how you want them too?

Today I want to talk about exactly that. How we can ensure the rooms in our homes emit the feelings we want them too.

There is nothing worse than being in a space that you don’t feel great about, and worse than that

Vivid Sydney – Inspired Interior by My Decorator

Proposed foyer design for Performing Arts Co.

A few Friday nights ago we went into the city to take in the amazing atmosphere at Vivid Sydney 2013. We enjoyed dinner and drinks first at the Opera Bar and then wandered around Circular Quay and The Rocks to see all the different visual light displays.

I couldn’t help but let my designer mind go to thinking how some of the amazing images that were projected onto the Opera House could be used in Interior spaces. So to capture this creative thinking I have put together a 3D image for an Old Warehouse of a Performing Arts Company that shows what some Vivid could look like in a Commercial setting (pictured above). The proposed foyer would have a huge artwork image of the opera house (vivid a fied) hanging in the foyer with some quirky performing arts bowler hats as pendants and tan leather barcelona chairs to create a warm friendly welcome to any visitors.

I hope you had the opportunity to go and see Vivid Sydney 2013, if you didn’t have a look at the slideshow I put together of some of the photos we took. I would also love to read your thoughts and experiences of Vivid Sydney 2013 so feel free to comment below.

Good afternoon wonderful ones!  So I was just browsing through houzz a few days ago and saw this post that had some helpful tips for renters that I thought I would share with you here.  Hope you enjoy it!

Go dottie!

Who said interiors had to be serious?  Lately I’ve been into dots.  Coloured, polka dot, large dots, all dots.

I think adding some dot accents to your home can bring some fun, dots are fresh, bright and cheery!

We all know that dots have been around forever but I’ve noticed that fashion has   recently gone a tad dottie, see here:

So be inspired and add some dottie quirkiness to your interior today for an instant summer hit.

Below are some dots in action with the occasional quirky pattern thrown in for good measure.  I like to use dots in accents for the interiors I design, such as cushions, pictures etc… that way when you tire of them you can easily replace them with another plain or pattern print.
