Tracings #1:
Here's a sampling of tracings I did for my History of Modern Architecture class I took last semester. We were learning about the history of interior design through the usage of chairs. I really took a liking to this assignment since I love to draw and thought I'd share a few of the first ones I attempted. 

"Hunzinger Chair" (1879)

"Red & Blue Chair" (1918)

"Barrel Chair" (1937)

"Armchair" (1843)

Sew-much Fun!
Here's a glimpse into some things I've made in my spare time...
Reversible Apron:

Laptop Bag with Accessories Holder:

It's just the beginning...

These are examples of my presentation boards that I created for my Intro to Interior Design class. I decided to re-design my living/dining room and make it my ideal room. I really enjoyed this particular project due to the fact that I had a personal connection to the space that I was designing.

The concept behind this re-design was to create a space where me and my husband could come home and relax as well as have people come over and enjoy a meal. I wanted people to feel as if they had stepped into a place of serenity and comfort . I really enjoyed looking for accessories for this particular project due to the fact that I had just come back from Hawaii and had bumped into some really terrific furniture stores with some tropical accessories that I fell in love with and were unique.

I really wanted my boards to reflect this idea of clean symmetrical lines thus I came up with the idea of making my boards square . I think if I were to do it over again, I probably would have utilized a larger board to put at least two plans versus just one. Overall, I tried to implement an Asian flare to my work which reflects who I am and what I hope to incorporate in my up and coming work.
