Για τσαι στη Σοφια


Περάσαμε ένα υπέροχο απόγευμα για τσάι με τη Σοφία Κούστα.

Σας μεταφέρω, μέσα από τις εικόνες, τη ζεστή, φιλόξενη και χριστουγεννιάτικη ατμόσφαιρα του νέου της χώρου. Η λευκή φλοκάτη στρωμενή στο δάπεδο, το τσάι με άρωμα κανέλας, η γευστικότατη σπιτική μηλόπιτα,  όλα είχαν άρωμα και γεύση Χριστουγέννων!

Paula Marie Farmer~


oliofriends

IMG_6440

Paula is married to Adam and have one daughter, Emily who is nearly 16!They live in a beautiful village, close to the River Severn in The Forest of Dean, Gloucestershire – which is in England. Paula worked in local government for the past 15 years and before that was a legal secretary.

She says: «I never really knew – when I was young – what I wanted to do when I grew up!!
I have always been interested in design and decor and remember, when I was about 11/12 years old, that I used to look through my mum’s used Grattan catalogues and make lists of furniture items and things which I liked and then cut out the pictures to put into a scrapbook!  I liked art too but could never draw people or animals, and only really liked playing with color and textures.
At home I often move furniture around to try and re-invent the space and am always looking for new projects!  If you know me well then you’d know that I’m quite impatient!  If I have an idea, then I want to get straight to work on it!  It’s even been known for my husband to pop out for the day and come home later to a re-painted room with all of the furniture in different places!!”

In 2007 Paula enrolled on a course with The National Design Academy which allowed her to continue working full time and to study.  In the summer of 2008  was awarded with Diplomas and Certifcates in Professional Art and Interior Design. She  definitely recommend distance learning/e-learning to anyone who doesn’t have the time to attend college/university due to other committments, as this type of study can be done to suit yourself and help is always on hand by email or telephone if needed.n 2011 she carried out her first interior design job (which was for the Local Authority where she worked!).  By using her skills and knowledge it was a way of the Council saving money whilst also giving her some first hand experience and showcasing her talents!  We can see photos from this on Paula’s web site. Also her mother involved in the project and commissioned her to paint a couple of canvasses!!

About design Paula said: “Design is my passion, so after finishing the work at The Crematorium it made me realise that this was what I wanted to do ‘when I grew up’!!!  I then decided to set up my own business and spent ages researching,business planning, designing a web site and business cards etc.  I then discovered other business tools like Twitter, Facebook, Pinterest and, of course, Olioboard!!”

About olioboard: Olioboard has been an extremely valuable tool for my business.  In fact I have used a moodboard designed on Oliobard for my Facebook Page, Twitter Account, Web site and even my business cards.  It is so useful to be able to create virtual moodboards for clients, using Olioboard, rather than using the old method of cutting out ideas and sticking them to a board (or in a scrapbook, as an 11 year old girl might do!).  I have also met lots of wonderful, like-minded people in the Olioboard Community (Konstadina!) and can even enter competitions just for fun! I am inspired by many things such as colour, texture and shape.  I love art, photography and different cultures and am very drawn to Italy and France.  I don’t know if I’d say I have a ‘style’ as such, because I like all types of design.  I suppose I just look at something and decide there and then – if I like it, if I don’t like it, or even if I could make it better, you know – work with it somehow!!”

At the present: I do still work for Local Government too, in my capacity as a Business Improvement Officer, but have decided that 2013 is the year to really launch my business so that I will then be able to make the move once and for all to concentrate fully on Casa Interiors!

One day, when I’m well and truly ‘grown up’ I should like to be living somewhere in rural Italy or France!!

ClearlyCake by Helenna Mannila~


Clearly-Cake-Logo-Small

Helenna always loved cakes. The traditional decorated cakes looked quite old-fashioned and unappealing, and in the UK the decorated (Royal Iced) cakes were always made by fruits. Until about 5 years ago when she saw photographs of cakes by Peggy Porschen she was inspired to take a 2-year part-time course in cake decorating and sugar flowers on Brooklands College.

*****************

In May 2012 launched the: ClearlyCake.

Even after a 2-year course, Helenna still loves taking cake courses and she has attended various ones like airbrushing cakes, painting cakes, sugar modelling skills, Lambeth piping and texturing techniques.

She loves conventional colour combinations like traditional colours for wedding cakes, such as white and pink. She also loves seeing unusual or little-used colour combinations like the latest wedding cake design she has finished (blue cake with orange roses and freesias).

Helenna ʼs next wedding cake designs will be of traditional colours. One white cake with pink roses and one with hand-piped lace techniques.
