Having attended New Designers Exhibition last week in London, I was able to see the work of all the top graduates from around the country. There was such a variety of work and due to our stand being on the balcony, I was able to see everyones work almost from a birds eye view! Every stand was so colourful and has inspired me to create this next blog. Walking around the show, there was lots of brights mixed with greys. I think this palette works so well together because even though it incorporates bright bold shades it doesn't feel over powering. The greys give it a quirky feel and the brights make it feel summery. Here are a few pictures to demonstrate this colour palette.
For my final year project at uni, I am designing wallpaper for children with a theme of childhood memories'. This will include things that I loved to do as a child such as going to the circus, funfair, seaside and park. In developing the theme and project, I have done market research into existing wallpaper designs. These are some of the inspiring prints!!
These pieces of jewellery are constantly changing and eventually die making them exclusive, original and one of a kind. Colleen Jordan creates the mini plants in the necklace and ring holders. You can carry your very own private garden with you all day. It feels fun and personal and I would really like one!!
Michael Brennand Wood is one of my favourite artists. I love his use of bold electric colours and his use of layering. I find him and his work inspirational. I have used his pieces for research in many of my projects.
I love making cushions not only for myself and to sell. At the moment, I am making cushions to do with anything British. I love anything quintessentially British, whether it be bulldogs, tartan, the Queen, the terrible and brilliant English summer, I love it. I would like the cushions to be ready to sell this summer coming. And saying that, with the light coating of snow I can see out the window in front of me, I seems that I have a little time to research into what is out there on the market at the moment and this is what I found.
These are some of the photos I took whilst working at the Chelsea Flower Show. They were taken before the mad rush of being able to buy the plants and flowers in the main arena. A countdown signals when the selling starts and its the most chaotic thing I've ever seen. I wonder how much these beautiful works of art got sold for.
