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.8)

Interior Design blogThis week I have finalized my bathroom layout. Professor Bicci discussed with me the different sizes of tiles to be used in a bathroom and how it should be applied in my technical drawing. The top drawing is a sectional view of the bathroom with the tiling application on the wall.
Interior Design blogThis is the detailed drawing of the custom sink and cabinet inside the bathroom. I made it as simple and intuitive as possible with a lot of storage spaces for bathroom essentials that are needed.
Interior Design blogAfter wrapping up the villa project, Professor Bicci introduced me to my new project which is to design the interior of a jewelry shop. This is the floor plan he gave me and I made several furniture layouts on tracing paper before I decide which is best suited for the jewelry shop.
Interior Design blogAfter several initial layout sketches, I came up with a final floor plan. This is the digitized floor plan of the furniture layout I made for the jewelry shop.
Interior Design blogI learned to enjoy and appreciate eating a pastry and simply enjoy the moment in Firenze. Here I have a creamy pastry with chocolate chips in it that I simply fell in love. I enjoyed watching people pass by and observe the life in Firenze.
Interior Design blogThis week I went to Verona upon my mother’s personal request to visit Juliet’s house. I learned that ‘Juliet Club’ is real and that there is a group of people who are dedicated to reply to every letter they receive from all over the world.
Interior Design blogI went inside Juliet’s house to explore the interior of it. There was nothing much to see as it was almost bare inside, but I have to come visit Juliet’s balcony and see her point of view from above.
Interior Design blogAfter walking around Verona, I stumbled upon their colosseum which apparently is the best preserved arena in Italy and they still hold regular shows weekly.
Interior Design blogThis week I went to Bologna as it was a quick train ride from Firenze. I walked around their narrow streets. I like how restaurants still managed to put tables outside.
Interior Design blogWhen in Bologna, I must have Bolognese pasta. I ordered a tagliatelle al ragu Bolognese and sprinkled a lot of parmesan cheese in it.
