In the spirit of being done with school for a few weeks before summer school kicks in, I’m posting another photo from the same project as yesterday. This is my final presentation of my restaurant project.
Today is my last day of school for the spring semester. Hooray! I’ve become increasingly nervous about posting any schoolwork on my blog. Once it’s done, I’m pretty tired of looking at it. The more I analyze what I should have done differently. But I’m hoping that it will be fun to look back in a few years and see some progress. This is from a commercial project that we recently did. It shows the progression of how I drew a wall of booths in a one point perspective.
I can’t remember where I first saw Jessica Helgerson’s tiny house on Sauvie Island near Portland. I just remember being in love with it. She quickly became one of my favorite designers. Not only because of my affinity for tiny houses, but also how she made the 540 square foot home so spacious.

Continuing on with the week’s theme of connecting with the outdoors, today’s favorite reads revolve around cabins and camping. Maybe it’s because summer is fast approaching, or the 70-80 degree weather we’ve been having here in San Luis Obispo, or maybe even because of the 8 cups of hot cocoa I’ve had this week, but I’m excited for some adventure!

My sister and I went paddle boarding the other day at Port San Luis. On one side of the pier there is a small dock with a large cage on it where seals like to hang out. (Not sure about the cage’s purpose.) Tina said “reminds me of the movie Mad Max”…Ugh…Mad Max. It aired on TV often when we were little. I don’t know anything about the movie except that I hated every single scene. It seemed so bleak, the environment looked so hot and dry (even in the water). Everyone looked miserable, I know I would be. (Especially since someone was always being chased.)
Nowadays, my movie choices are usually light hearted rom-com that are pleasant to look at. I can’t take the extra stress.

Did You Hear About The Morgan’s? Not as much design but I still love the setting.
Yesterday I wrote about connecting with the outdoors from the indoors. I wanted to share some photos of what is so lovely about bringing the outdoors inside.
Making use of the outdoor views
Of course, we don’t all have a big courtyard of trees surrounding our home, or even the liberty to put in big windows, but we can…
Bring Nature Indoors
Using materials that help you connect with nature
My favorite rooms usually include natural creamy colors, raw and weathered wood, and relaxed furniture.
How do you feel about trying to simulate the outdoors in a more literal sense?
Let’s go outside and bring it inside!
