Hands: the eyes of the soul

Hands, the eyes of the soul. I remember something very interesting my tutor told me a few years ago. It  was when I was preparing my portfolio for the Foundation year of Art and Design at Ulster University. A bit of a story here. You see, when I moved to Northern Ireland I didn't really know how to draw. So I enrolled in a couple of drawing classes and I had a private tutor to help me prepare the portfolio. My tutor was very kind, and as I have said many times, I felt like I had a mother here in Northern Ireland in this  strange new place. Anyway, I am really and forever grateful to her. Now on hands. So, she was regularly giving me tasks to do at home. One of those tasks was to draw my face, like a portrait drawing. The interesting part was that I had to draw my [...]

New Years are never truly happy

It's February and the year changed one and a half months ago, but the new Buddhist year changes tomorrow, so I guess I can still wish "happy new year".  But that's not the point of this post; to wish happy new year, or fear. The way I see it is that every year (like every day) we are closer to our death (Oh, no, I'm speaking for such a sad/dark thing, boohoo, get over it).  Yep, that's the reality everyday we wake up and we should be grateful for that cause there are people who didn't. But nevertheless, to celebrate and wish "happy" new year? Let's be honest, we all know how our year will go. It will be the same as the previous one. Unfortunately, things don't change. What of course changes is our health. SO why not to wish healthy new year? Anyway, I am wishing you all a healthy new year. A year [...]

Interior Design: What is really about.

Hello all! Now that I graduated from Uni and hold an Interior Design Degree (2:1) I believe I can speak freely. I don't mean about how bad the uni was, but about what Interior Design actually is and what an Interior Designer is supposed to do. Anyway, a lot of people used to ask me (and keep asking me) what I'm doing, like if I work or not. I usually tell them that "I am student" and they were very surprised and seemed interested to learn more about my studies. And I was surprised too, I don't really expect people to show interest in studies in general. Anyhow, my response always was "I'm studying Interior Design" and after that I always received similar responses. "Wow, then decor must be your thing".  "It must be very nice to decorate houses". "When I'll paint my house, I'll ask for your help". "I want to buy a sofa [...]

Minimalism as a choice in Life

Minimalism as a choice in Life I was reading an article recently about last year's Interior Design trends. Can't remember and can't find on which website it was. The article was focused on trends that were "out of fashion" and the author was happy about it! One of these trends was the minimalist interiors (minimalism). I was really surprised and shocked about the way the article was written. The author's style was a bit humoristic, but was crossing a line.  A parenthesis here, if someone loves for example pink and this colour is "in" for a year, doesn't mean that if next year the colour is "out" this person must change their preference! Apparently, for some people (including the author of the article) if you continue to like pink while is "out" you are "out" too. Anyway, I don't really like that kind of thinking. I believe people are free to choose whatever they like. Therefore, my current  post - article [...]
