WOOHOOOO! Time to party!
Oh wait, we still have 3 more shows. Boo. :))
Our late night practices paid off :) Let’s do this!!!
I picked out the colors for each room in my apartment. The study room was completed just last year, after Rizza moved in for college. I think white’s perfect if you’re constantly tasked to design and work on different themes/things. And of course, light bounces off really well here and it’s perfect for photo shoots :))
I designed my own drafting table and my uncle built it for me (just like the rest of the furniture we have here).
My mum also bought this insanely comfortable sofa that can transform into a bed. That’s where I spend my lazy Sundays, watching downloaded movies from my iMac across the room.
It’s a good room to be in when I arrive from school.
As of now I have too many books, magazines, tracing paper & hopia paper on the shelves and storage compartments. If you’re a design student I guess you become a pack rat- just cos you know you can get inspiration from just about anything you can find lying around.
Okay that was just an excuse for all the clutter. :))
I’m also planning on putting up different frames on one wall. I asked my friends for tons of frames during my 19th birthday. Gonna start decorating this Christmas break. YAY!
