Quick living room freshen up

If you think of all the decorating shows one enjoys watching on tv, they are more about the process of design than the end product. A process that is made pleasurable and entertaining to watch and participate. You can always grab a magazine or browse the internet, in order to see the end result, you don’t need to watch a show. But you watch it because you enjoy the excitement of transformation.

2018, a Retrospective

2018 has been the year of many conundrums. Innocent yet unmistakably urgent, happenstances of everyday sift through time, moulding it to their liking. Yet I’m looking back and amidst all that, as always, wonderful life comes through strong with beautiful memories and many accomplishments.

Shopping season, getting the essentials and the ones you don’t need

When I shop for clients I never feel distracted. It is completely different when the buying becomes a part of a project. Professional buying applies a filter to browsing that confidently edits, reshuffles and combines the finds with all the other elements of the design, such as room wall colours, flooring finish lights and so forth, that I do not have with me when shopping.

Twenty Two beautiful fountain pens

Oh! I so like fountain pens! I have owned one since grade one, in fact, that was my first writing tool. I believe it was a Pelican. And yes that should give you a hint at how old I am which I don’t really see it as a problem but rather an advantage. Faber-Castell was,…

Sci-fi and the future of the body imagined

My fascination with sci-fi as a genre lies in the forgiveness with which the public accepts its ideas.  Imagination in the sphere of the future is accepted much easier than in the realm of the present. As a designer of interiors, many of my ideas are shot down, questioned, torsioned, probed and often some are…

Edit, the DX exhibit

Some of the things that caught my eye. Sometimes it’s better to not read the description, to not be told what you really look at but rather make it up your own way. That should be today’s way to look at design. At a time of over-stimulation, challenging reality in your own personal way is…

for me.. what is blogging all about

After a few years into it, it is worth considering why do it. A lot of people blog these days. Initially blogging generated a small group of a new kind of writers. With no platform, struggling to get ideas out, often not knowing how. By just doing it with no focus nor purpose, eventually, you…

On Proximity, Space and Light Installations. The Distillery District

Needless to say, beautiful lights at night have a pleasant charm to them.When those lights are designed by artists and architects and placed in the open, the city transforms into a curated exhibit. Few places around the world have light festivals and now we have it too! Out of the ones on display at the Distillery, my favorite…

It never fails to amaze me.. how many ways one can work with and reinterpret knitting.. Here is an example of neural knittworks coming alive with colour

Celebrating 2 years of Dochia Flipboard Mag

Hard to believe that two years have passed since I started our first editorial. Selecting and placing articles in close proximity, much like elements of space,  builds a unity that goes beyond the sum of their parts. They influence each other and create a message, that exists as a composition of associative thought. I think…
