INTERIOR DESIGN PLANS Skip to main content


Since the academic year has recently started I thought I'd do a quick post to share some tips that I used or wish I knew at the time! I often found myself feeling pretty prepared and motivated at the start of the year but hopefully, some of these will help that to continue all year round, or more at least!

Attitude and Behaviour

Put in the effort now - when you get further into the year you'll thank yourself for putting in the time to learn everything properly, especially when it comes to revision as you'll already have materials to look back at.
> Mistakes are good - it can be disheartening when you make mistakes or don't get the feedback you hoped for but learning from them is a really productive and useful way to help improve.
> Strengths and Weaknesses - everyone has things they are better at and things they may struggle with, finding that out now and setting time aside to focus on the things you find harder will help reduce stress. You could also study w…


My love for interior design goes back to being a young child,  I started off cutting things out of magazines and sticking them onto some A4 paper to design my room. I didn't care that my bed was the same size of the Tamagotchi, I just enjoyed creating a collage of my 'dream room'. I have always been one to be designing different rooms and house plans, whether that is on paper or using computer software. Colour schemes is also a big part of my love for interiors, you know those paint colour charts you find in hardware stores like B&Q? Well I think I must have collected most of them over the years, seriously it's an impressive collection!

Back along started to do some 3D interior planning based on how I would currently design a theoretical one bedroom house/apartment etc. - using Planner 5D to do this as it was easy and quick to use. The availability of furniture isn't amazing if you don't pay but I think I managed to show a basic idea of my ideal layout. My youngest sister (she's 9, almost 10) has also used it to 'design' her own house. But she also got the hand of it pretty quickly so I'd definitely recommend the website.

Anyway, here are a couple screenshots of the overall plan of my house currently. I would love an open plan living room and kitchen, especially with big windows to let in a lot of light, maybe looking onto a garden of some sort! Besides that feature I don't mind too much about the layout of the bedroom, bathroom or any other rooms.

As you can see my colour theme is white/cream with touches of grey, a sort of minty green/duck egg colour and wood. I've picked out my favourite colours from the Farrow & Ball paint chart booklet. I absolutely love the way it opens out, instead of the usual and conventional booklets!


If you like my designs so far feel free to check out my project in full below - in both 2D and 3D.  You can navigate your way around the rooms and zoom in more closely to see everything properly, enjoy!

Christmas is approaching so today I thought I'd share my gift guide to hopefully give you inspiration for the people you are buying for this year. I am going to do a combination of gifts for her, gifts for him and then gifts for anyone!
 Knitted Jumper - Perfect for this time of the year and something most people would appreciate. Head over to Asos for a huge selection!  Jacket - Another one that is useful for the colder weather, personally I'd like a denim jacket this Christmas but you could also go for a leather, smarter or bomber jacket. Have a look on Topshop for some inspiration!       
 Shirt - This is definitely something I know my Dad would appreciate and would be a great present if you tend to dress smarter on Christmas day! There are some great choices at John Lewis and Marks and Spencer.  Slippers - Another ideal gift for this time of the year and so cosy, Next have some great ones!  Converse - Another one that is on my list this year, basically a wardrobe staple b…


Last Saturday I turned 19 and to celebrate, my boyfriend kindly paid for a trip to London. So on the Friday we morning, we made the journey from our little town to the busy streets of city life. The journey actually went really quickly, (around 2 hours) though we were both very hungry when we got there!

We stayed in The Grange St. Pauls hotel which was absolutely gorgeous and I would 100% recommend it to anyone. The room itself was a perfect size - spacious but still felt cosy and the bed was super comfortable, something I was very appreciative after the long day! However my favourite part and one of the reasons I chose this hotel were the leisure facilities. The pool itself was amazing and it was so nice to be able to use it on the Friday afternoon and again on the Saturday morning before we checked out. There was also a jacuzzi, sauna, steam room and a gym, as well as a spa, which you could book various treatments at. Unfortunately we didn't really use too many of these as most…


March is always a pretty busy time, it's known as the 'birthday month' in our family because between the 1st and 21st, 7 of us have celebrated our birthdays! This means that there is a lot of family time, a lot of presents and a lot of cake which is a pretty good mix - plus there are loads of things I've been loving this month so I'll get started!
Something I had to mention in this monthly favourites was the rather strange weather we had! We'd not had any decent snow since 2013 and then we had multiple snow days in March, so I think it's fair to say that Spring was delayed! I actually really like the snow, it's so amazing to look out at, especially when it is untouched! Although I did slip over on the ice, straight on my that wasn't as great!


This month I have worn my denim jacket constantly, I don't know how I've lived without one for so long! Besides the random snow days, we've definitely had a few milder and m…
