A fascinating piece by freelance writer and interior design blogger Stacey Sheppard (who writes at The Design Sheppard and many other places) about designing her own garden office at an interior design course at Juliette's Interiors. It's a great post looking at everything from playing with layout options to choosing furniture, soft furnishing, design schemes, and creating mood boards (pictured above and below). Here's a snippet:
We worked on three possible options before settling on our final layout. We also had an opportunity to draw one elevation of the room to show how this would look. I actually really struggled with this aspect of the course. I don’t have a mathematical brain and I’m not very good at visualising spaces so this was a real challenge for me. I had to redo my floor plan three times as I kept making mistakes, but I was very proud of myself once it was done and it is such a useful skill to learn. I do wonder though whether I would have found this aspect a lot easier had we have done this on the computer. But either way, it was a really valuable part of the course and I learnt so much by doing it.You can read the rest of the post here. Well worth a look.
