I've recently become fascinated with all the fun and fresh ideas I've seen on blogs. These people are amazing, I'm impressed and more importantly...inspired!
One of the most important things that i learned in design school was that there are no original ideas. So, with that in mind, I'm using the inspiration of the other blogs out there to inspire my own. I mean really, how hard can it be??
Here is what I'm thinking: I'm a designer and i often feel like people expect me to be really designery and i feel like i fall flat in that department sometimes. So, I'm kicking it up a notch, I'm challenging myself to incorporate this more into my daily life in a way that can hopefully inspire others. That's what design is all about after all. So here is where I'm gonna start - My house + My neighborhood:
- My House: There are a ton of projects I want to start working on in my house...painting, stenciling, designing and building custom millwork, creating tackable fabric panels, to name a few. I'm hoping to provide some good how-tos and instructions on how to do these projects yourself.
- My Neighborhood: The Navy Yard, where is live is changing day by day and i find the construction projects fascinating. I thought it would be fun to track the progress and show some before and afters of interesting projects. I love construction. Seeing something transform from a pile of dirt into a brand new building is the best! Am i right??
