The monochromist

I have been reading up on a home design book that a friend presented me for my birthday from half way around the world. It was a thoughtful gesture which i wondered how she knew i was unknowingly itching for a monochromatic design to inspire me for my latest work. 

I have never dealt with a fully rendered mono in any of my school work because it’s something daring to execute flawlessly on paper. And working with “professional” markers i’ve never used in preschool was a little bit intimidating (and expensive, may i add). Importantly, the use of textures and finishes to bag plays a great role to project something with character to keep the eyes at ease. And deciding what works and what doesn’t, that’s something my indecisiveness needed to learn — fast. With deadlines approaching, you learn to base your instinct in decision making.

This book has lead me to many decisions i’ve made in the past short month. This website and it’s creative look, and my long awaited final of all my final school work —for the meantime. Today, i’m grateful for what’s in front of me and for pulling through to devoting myself in the long, terrifying and tearful years of life as a Interior Design student.
