Bloggy Inspirations

I chose this as a Blog that can inspire you because of the futuristic feel of their products.  As a designer it inspires me to know that I can expand in many different flields of work.  I am not confined to simply designing a space for a residence or a room in a hotel, I can design a more cofortable living space that could include a hiding place for an adult such as this picture.  You dont have to be a child to play hid and go seek.

This is a bowl that has two bowls in one.  There is one that is in the center and the other one comes out, the reason for that is so that if you drop a penut it will fall in the second bowl.  This idea may seem so simple but it works! Again, this blog has ideas that are so futuristic but if you think about it not too long ago we didnt have the technlogy that we have now so you could say we are the future.  I know a blog like this can keep you up to date on the new ideas that will be out and available for the public one day.

This Blog is called MOCOLOCO. This blog has a lot of new ideas for design.  I chose these two photos because I enjoy seeing a small space be used just like a huge space would.  It shows you that no matter how small your can be you can always make it a useful and fun environment.

Today I chose to write about David Bromstad. He has a show on HGTV called Color Splash: Miami, if the title doesn't give it away let me tell you he enjoys COLOR.  He likes to transform a room with a style combination of realism and fantasy.  Take a look at the Photo below.

This is one of my favorite examples of his work.  This space feels so warm and cozy.  The colors help set the mood but more importantly the shapes he used in here help create a circular embrace as if someone was hugging you.  At the same time this space also feels like your "in space."  This almost seems like a futuristic movie. 

He usually incorporates a painting he does himself.  Most of the paintings are usually very earthy, showing flowers.  In most of his work he tries to see what the client likes and make a painting that would tie everything in. As you can see in this 9 piece painting of flowers they are very simple but at the same time the way he created the lime green border makes it a bit more complicated.

These two pieces I found at the Galleria Mall in Dallas. They had a REDBULL exhibit and I was inspired by these because of their uniqueness. The first one that looks like a head is something I would see in a David Bromstad Design because of its shape and also the way it is all mirror it would have all the color around reflect off of it.  The second one is a painting and although Ive never seen a complicated and detailed painting from him I could see this in a room because of the natural elements and also the random Red Bull in the center.

My First Blog!

This is a piece I did for an art class. My Interpretation of "Starry Night" by Van Gogh
This is my very first blog! I am so excited to begin to share my life progress in the beautiful and creative field of Interior Design. Its amazing being able to learn how to perfect our skills and keep learning in this ever evolving environment.  This blog is for a class assignment to keep ourselves inspired in a different way.  I don't know about you but as an artist I need to keep exploring what else is out there to motivate my creative mind! I hope you all enjoy my very first step in school!
