It’s a SHOWTIME!! We are very excited to be exhibiting our surface finishes on Surface Design Show in Islington London from 11-13 February.
The event will also be in a big part concentrated on sustainability, carbon emissions and recycling, which give us a great opportunity to present our versatile and VOC free Novacolor products .
We want to invite you all to visit us on stand 504 to enjoy our bespoke and unique designs.
** PRIDE ** It's been a YEAR!! CAN YOU BELIEVE IT?! Like today, one year ago, I GRADUATED with my masters thesis 'Tripoli: The architecture of co-existence', officially became an architect and achieved a dream of mine ♥️
Let's face it, I probably wouldn't have made it that far if I wasn't so stubborn 🤷 After being told by one tutor that they thought I was unintelligent, to another saying I *might* have some potential a year later, to being granted the reason for every miserable mistake in a group project, to somehow with some extreme luck getting an exchange opportunity at UTS where everything got turned around(and probably the best thing that could have happened to me at this point), I gained some confidence, then went back and got my Bachelor's degree (another proud moment🙈) •
Cut to the masters degree. I was insecure. About everything, anything I said or did I was afraid was somehow wrong. What if after all I was not good enough for this and those tutors were right? i went through half of my masters, and then Boom. I failed.. Took me forever to accept that fact, but I did fail my 9th semester. And at aarch there is no 'retake on an exam' it's a whole semester you retake. So when I retook it, ofc my self esteem had now reached rock bottom, and I barely scraped through the next one.
• So with only one semester left, my final thesis, I decided that no more was I to listen to what other people wanted or expected, it was getting me no where. I felt misjudged and misunderstood, and did not want to accept someone elses image of me. 🙄
And I got though. And I proved that I could. Most importantly to myself. And I didn't just scrape through. And even though it doesn't actually 'mean anything on paper' I pride myself that my tutors nominated my project for a prize. My thesis was, is, and will always be my proudest moment. •
It's amazing what a little bit of confidence and plain stubbornness can do... •
It’s Friday tomorrow and my devils ivy is outgrowing it’s pot 🙌 swipe for a closer look. If you’re looking for an easy climbing/trailing plant to look after, devils ivy is perfect. (Excuse Evelyn’s toys and art supplies in the background)
🎶 Mud, mud, glorious mud! 🎶 🦛
These pictures don’t really capture the progress and sheer enormity of our quagmire and how much mud has actually been removed! It’s created a huge mud hill boundary alongside the temporary road through the paddock. 🚜 The trenches had to be re-dug out today ready for the big concrete pour tomorrow lunchtime. 🙌🏻 You can kinda see where the patio is going to be (the bit beyond the boarded trenches) which is very exciting for lazy sunny days and daydreams ahead... it’ll soon come round☀️
