Inspiration can come from all sorts of places and for all kinds of reasons. It’s rarely the same from one person to the next or even week to week. I was talking to my tutor group last week about how it’s good to get to know your own shortcomings and preferences but to always keep your eyes and ears open. I know that I have a “thing” for chairs and will often have a vast range of chair designs in a scheme at FF&E stage but will only have a limited number of sofas for example.
When it comes to looking for inspiration it can from anywhere…. And when you are least expecting it. I’m particularly taken with the below My Circus book by Xavier Deneux – who is a great French children’s illustrator. My son really likes this book and it’s given me plenty of joy too, including the inspiration for the colour palette in the below children’s rooms. With small splashes of colour and crafty peep-through holes in the pages what’s not to love about this book. Whilst clowns may freak some people out, the colour and minimalist lines of the big top and the circus illustrations are palette glory.
