I am not a English poet , Infact English is my second language . But I am one of those who emotionally effected by this tragic incident . I have write a poem to tribute Grenfell tower in ” a voice of Grenfell tower ” .
I burn, bleed and choke
I couldn’t breathe in smoke
My love ones hugged, kissed in tears,
I cry with them and tell them don’t fear,
I will stand in black and mourn for you,
There will scream echo in ears
There will story to tell for years
Many holding my name and asking for justice
I turn into black and my blood getting rustic
There are so many flowers around my grave
fighting for answers so many Braves
But the truth is …
Many clowns will change their faces with times
Dance around those burn ashes with playful minds
There was a time Graffiti consider a part of vandalism. I personally think it was an unspoken human emotion which created a very strong expression in a very rebellion way.And those mix of expressions and emotions create something so strong and bold to draw attention. There was always a political aspect in graffiti and has been used to convey strong messages through images and artist like Banksy became a strong revolution in the art industry. Not only his views and messages speak through his strong ironic and humorous images but he has been an inspiration for so many artists.

In part 4, 5 years have been quite revolutionary years in social media. Artists and designers find open audiences through YouTube and Instagram by sharing their work and process of art. And I find blessed that we are living a time where art is access able and giving creative minds room to breathe and grow. It is cutting the edge of creativity. We see unconventional and blend forms in art and design industry.People have the different opinion about this art and it has been changed over the years. Now it has been not recognized a strong form of art but it’s also creating impression on design industry which reflecting on interiors. There is rich, bold and same time abstract form of graffiti which attract interior design to make it part of blank spaces.
My personal favourite is graffiti on furniture. From years people decorate, walls and floors with pattern and furniture have been same boring one colour pieces. A printed fabric has been part of sofa’s and bed but it was a limited use of it.
Through social media revolution, artists and design broke boundaries to experiment different paints and patterns on wood and glass . During those art and media experiments, graffiti is taking place on decorative furniture. It might not everyone’s cup of tea but it’s giving a design industry and new way of thinking.
My little bit experiment with my own toilet cupboard.
Art has been the biggest part of interior design. From Victorian to the 20th century, painting and sculptures have been the biggest part of living space. But it also has been changed from realist to abstract forms. Although real art moves more in art galleries. The people interest shift toward modern and affordable paintings and even prints. It’s also because art and painting are more accessible nowadays.
In last 4 years, I have seen a dramatic change in art, especially in paintings. I think that digital media brought craft into art which has influence new artists and designers. A form of arts is progressing and developing quicker than ever. The abstract form of paintings are getting more and more popular in last few years People are more keen about abstract and colours comparatively 20 years ago.I m not sure if it was an evolution of digital media or something else but art came on the surface of digital media.
I meet a art teacher in city library and she lost her job during that time . She was working towards an independent artist and also had a YouTube Chanel for useful tutorial and tips .what ever was happened , it was so much beneficial for artists and art works .YouTube also played a role in this change .
Many new artist and designer start blogging and sharing visual process of their work .It has emerge whole new universe of craft and techniques which inspirited many new artists and designer to experiments with art and techniques. I am pleased that we are living in a time when art is merging with new craft and technologies . This development and a fast change in style of painting and medium opened new vision of style in modern interior and it reflects prominently .
Flowers have been the oldest way to accessories home on every day as well as on special occasion. Flowers used to express feeling and emotions. In my personal opinion, no house decoration complete without flowers. We use flower arrangement in every part of the house from the restroom to the living room or a part of our kitchen. It is much-underrated part of home decor but no one can afford to miss it. It not only bring exterior into the interior but also enlightens up living space.
Flowers have been used in a different way to brighten up space. Every interior designer and stylist usually like to give a finishing touch with of flowers of their final presentation. It creates fresh and clams look in its environment.
It has been used not only fresh but also been dry to make them live longer in the space. Supermarkets are full of natural flowers every day regardless of weather. Love of natural plants and flowers leads to dry arrangements from centuries now. But I prefer artificial flowers than dry arrangements. Interior design is not about visuals, it’s that feeling you create with those colours and shapes. I personally feel that dry arrangement creates a dead part in the room. It creates flaky dust around if it’s not been done properly. It also depends on how you using it, if it’s with natural flowers then it’s bearable and compliment them sometimes.
I personally like any part of exterior or nature to bring into interior especially flowers and plants. I prefer artificial flowers on dry arrangements. Bright colours and a good arrangement create a calm and fresh illusion in the room. There is 3 plus point as well, it’s affordable investment with you décor, easy to clean and change whenever you want.
Summer is not the only time of Sun and beach. It’s also a time of redecoration and some new furniture in the housing. Everyone get summer sprite in May and June. We are in mid-summer. It’s time to have a peek of new furniture trend in the high street. As I call it affordable furniture.
This year high street brought something different which we haven’t seen in last 3 years. We can see more Arm chairs and 2 seat sofa more than corner sofas. I have picked it up some beautiful and unique pieces to give a glimpse of high street furniture trend of 2017.
Grey beautiful arm chair gives you a very comfortable and calm look and it could look any dark colour scheme. It would look perfect not only in front of the fireplace but in the back garden or even in a small terrace as well.
This blue cosy chair gives you more winter look than a summer. But its unique and contemporary design makes any space look modern and chic. There is a very much cuddle feeling in this design and I can clearly see myself with a book on it, especially charismas time.
The living room is always a centre of summer redecoration. and when it comes to the living room, it comes to big family size couch to cuddle up and to spend some family time. The best thing, I have liked in this design was its blocked edges which give more cosy and comfortable feeling to a design. Its cushions and high back, not only creates a luxurious look but also would provide a support and comfort into a design.
I have kept best in this last. This year’s best and far better trend is 2 seats small sofas which are called “Snuggles” or “Cuddles”. I have loved their shapes and size. It does give me a very warmth cuddly feeling. They are the only one trend in sofa which gives you romantic and fresh vibe in this summer. I would highly recommend visiting Wesley and Barrel. Their furniture is absolutely brilliant.
The similarity between design and food is, everyone has his own taste. A designer has his own recipes and way to design and get inspired. Our past and present, dreams and wishes, liking and disliking all connect with inspiration and become a recipe for a design. I always feel design world is a reality of human imagination and desires. My Imaginative world is full of castles and historical buildings which tells stories of culture and their habitats. I get inspired by stories, films, cultures, theatres costumes which tells the story of culture and history to Victoria Secrete’s fashion shows.
I like crazy ambitious people because creativity and revolutionary designs comes from them . These are some crazy Ideas comes from non designers . They wanted some thing and bring it into life from their imagination with out caring about money and time .
