I am Shani and I am an industrial designer by profession focusing on furniture design. In my first 3 years working in the furniture industry, I was able to work with a lot of interior designers, hence, I wanted to also be able to design my own space. Art and design plays a huge role in my life. I always enjoy being surrounded with various artworks and creative people.

Interior Design Short Course (n.1)

Interior Design blogThis week I was able to go and visit Uffizi Gallery and saw the Birth of Venus by Botticelli. The museum was magnificent and it was nice to see all the paintings that goes way back in the 1800s.
Interior Design blogMy first activity started off with a floor plan of a villa in which Professor Bicci guided me all throughout as I was beginning the project. A 1:100 scale of a villa floor plan in which I should place 3 bedrooms (with bathroom), living area, dining area, kitchen, and a stock room.
Interior Design blog I mixed up my class schedule and thought I had classes this day. The admin let me in the classroom and said I can continue my project since I am already there
Interior Design blogWe started off with traditional pen and paper as I was starting to layout my floor plan. I eventually moved to digital and made it on my preferred software of choice.
Interior Design blogI met Takuto this week, he’s studying product design. We went out after class and ate lunch in a nearby restaurant. We both ordered pasta.
Interior Design blogI finally tried my first gelato in Italy. Discovered this hidden gelateria place near my flat and I love I got to try it under a very good sunny weather.
