Recently I’ve noticed quite a few of my favourite youtubers/bloggers moving out and documenting it. Now I don’t know about you, but I absolutely love following the whole transformation process. It’s so interesting seeing what kind of design elements they’ll incorporate into their spaces and how they’ll tie everything together. Some of my favourites to watch at the moment are Lily Melrose, Lily Pebbles, and also I loved Kate’s post on how her and her boyfriend gave their bathroom a new lease of life all on their own.
Watching these types of vlogs always prompts me to imagine how I would go about styling my own place, which inevitably leads to sketching. I have quite a few blank sketchbooks lying around so I decided to dedicate one to interior sketches. I’ve always admired the skills involved in perspective drawing, so it’s become a small challenge/goal of mine to teach myself. The last picture of the kitchen was drawn using the two point method, which isn’t as hard as I thought it would be. The only thing that kind of threw me was drawing that extractor. Like with anything, there are a lot of youtube videos out there that show you the basics, I just went from there. The drawing itself looks quite simple, but something like this would be my dream kitchen.
I would be so happy if my future kitchen had dark wooden floors, white subway tiles as a backsplash, a coat of pale mint paint, white cupboards with thick, black granite tops, a belfast sink and a few potted plants and art prints scattered around.
I currently have some space in the Philippines that I need to decorate, but at the moment it’s a bit of a concrete shell with windows. It is literally a blank canvas. So I think that’s partly what is fuelling my interest in gathering as many design ideas as possible. It’s probably not going to be completed any time soon, but I really would like to document the whole process – as I really enjoy reading these posts on other blogs. I’d definitely like to do a before and after picture too. There are so many costs to take into account, you just don’t realise until you cross that bridge. So I guess what I’m saying is my interior-pinning isn’t going to stop any time soon.
