Welcome to Design Digest, a website and blog about all things inspiring, with a focus on interior design and architecture. Let me say that I believe in integrating design into all aspects of life, from the car you drive, the pen you use,the way you serve food on a plate, to the home you live in, your whole daily existence can be enhanced by surrounding yourself with things you find pleasing. I am an interior designer and design educator at Holmesglen Institute in Melbourne. I have very broad interests from Ancient Roman architecture to Post Modernism with many design heroes including Andrea Palladio, William Morris and Mies van der Rohe to name a few. I am interested in design theory and understanding what enhances our everyday activities as well as those special occasions. This is where I intend to explore different themes and design icons. I have put this site together so my students can access the ideas that I talk about in my classes and to help generate discussion. Topics I will be covering include: My top ten favourite Architects and Designers. Interior design theory for creating great rooms. Design history and the lessons we can apply to our projects today. Designer tips I have collected over the years. Design objects that inspire. Check out my Blog: A day in the life of an interior designer: This is where you can hear about what interior designers get up to. I must admit that it is a rewarding and interesting profession where every day is different and challenging.
