Uni Blog 2018

Hello, so this is a little glimpse into the thoughts and things around my final major project from university (over a year ago). The aim of the blog was explore the topic of atmosphere and how objects within the home can influence it. Feels like a million years ago I started this but anyway, hope you enjoy

Murray & Steph - New Zealand

Murray and Steph had recently embarked on a new adventure exploring the southern hemisphere of New Zealand. The two of them have always enjoyed the outdoors so moving to a place which is ‘Scotland on Steroids’ was an easy choice.

The conversation was really interesting, uncovering the importance of a comfortable home in a strange place. One of the things which made this easier was having one and other: “ home is where Steph is”. It was this idea of comfort and calm which ultimately makes a house a home. Not quite as romantically put but it’s also a place “where you can fart freely”... But this is true, a home is a place where you can be you, a place you can trust but ultimately a place which is familiar, safe and has memories. 

“Walls become a canvas of your life experience” 
~Murray. 

We tell stories on our walls. The walls become extensions of us. So a question, how has the way we tell stories changed?
