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 

Design Talk - 'Colour Collection UK'


I had attended a talk given by the "colour collection UK' which focused on colours in interior design. what was so fascinating was the verity in talkers they had provided giving a different perspective on how they use and consider colour.

One of the more interesting people was Joe Feely, founder of 'Trend Bible' who gave in-depth knowledge in how colour trends through the season. She had mentioned that these trends can be seen early on in the adoption of 'mavens' whilst social, cultural and geographical moments can have a major effect on those colour trends.

She had identified how we will see a shift away from the refined scandi hygge interiors as we move into what she called 'Zen Garden' and 'elemental'  which have both been a response to how busy and cluttered our lives have become whilst also being influenced by the Tokyo 2020 Olympics. More interestingly she talked about 'Feed the mind' which is the complete rejection of scandi minimalism and uses bold/ bright colour, textures and patterns. 

Although not entirely necessary for me to attend the talk it was a topic of interest and has given some more food for thought regarding the project. However, for my project, I want the emphasis to be on the effect of light rather than the lights itself, so to choose trending colour might be contradictory to what i want to accomplish.
