Friends and clients often ask where I get my inspiration from and how the design process starts with me. So often, one of the biggest hurdles to designing your space is WHERE TO START?!? Excitable enthusiasm at the beginning of a project can quickly turn into a dizzying panic when faced with so much choice, especially without a visual aid, to help keep you on track. Et voila – a vision board is born!
I’ve been keeping what I call an ‘everything book’ since I was 16. Every Saturday, my best friend Claudia and I would take a trip to the local newsagents – each week with the same shopping list. Two cans of full fat coke, packet of Squares each and as many glossy magazines as we could afford. The rest of the afternoon was blissfully spent tearing out the pages on our bedroom floor, before cutting and sticking them into our own scrapbooks – somehow making more sense to us than in their original shiny format.
