Having studied design and interior styling at ISCD a few years ago, I often get people asking me what it was like and if they should enrol there. Today's post aims to help you make the decision - and I've brought in a few of my fellow ISCD graduates to give you their take on studying too.
You need to do something creative for yourself and you need to do it now.Whether you're a full time 9 to 5-er, a busy mum or simply find yourself in moments where you're unsure of where your life is heading, finding a creative outlet is going to change everything. I know this with complete certainty because I've gone on this journey myself. It's going to change the way you feel about yourself, the way you feel about others and the way you approach your everyday life. It has the potential to completely transform your world altogether, actually.
A few weeks back I popped into the International School of Colour + Design (ISCD) to throw back a champers and celebrate its 30th birthday. Despite it not looking a day over 21, the school has been educating a slew of stylists, designers and artists-in-the-making for over three decades - including me!
There's really no slow way to ease into this week's most fabulous news. So let's just jump right in; I'm in the new issue of Real Living magazine! Sharing the story of my design journey at the International School of Colour + Design, this full-page spread has me pinching myself - and also gives a glorious shot-out to my work on this little baby, The Life Creative!
Brand new website The Design Keeper showcases unique homewares and fashion pieces with strong design elements and understated elegance. I spoke to Director (and fellow ISCD graduate) Anne-Maree Mammoliti about establishing the store, its ethos and what's coming up for the brand!
I do love to get my craft on - and nothing brings out my inner Martha Stewart than the festive season. I'm also rather fond of making christmas cards and gift tags - probably because they're pretty easy to throw together and you can really put your own stamp on them (literally...using a stamp!).
One of the final assignments for my course at the International School of Colour and Design is creating a model/miniature room. They clearly saved the best project for last, as I had an absolute blast creating this Scandinavian warehouse-inspired model bedroom (a real colour challenge considering I'm so obsessed with bright hues).
I'm nearing the end of my course at the International School of Colour and Design, which means my rug design project is almost due. In a nutshell, students in the course submit a rug design and the winner of the assignment actually gets their design produce by Designer Rugs. It's a pretty exciting opportunity for us to be connected with an Aussie icon like this! Naturally, I had to hit the Edgecliff showroom for design inspiration and was lucky enough to speak to managing director Yosi Tal while I was there (score!).
