Home And Living

In today’s post, I’m sharing how I’m framing some inspiration for my work. As a photographer, looking to always improve my body of work is something I always aspire to do. The way I go about it is seeking inspiration anyway I can. That can be through movies, a really good book, following other photographers online and sometimes, venturing out and exploring. The bedroom is where I spend most of my time as it holds my work station that is a very chic bronx desk. Surrounded by plants and dried flowers in this makeshift office, I felt like I needed more to keep my spirits alive. The hanging post cards brings back wonderful memories from our travels but you’ll need to make an effort to look at them. And sometimes, it’s easy to forget.

While growing up in Nigeria (before I came across Feng Shui), I remember feeling uplifted each time I rearranged my bedroom. I felt a burst of energy and excitement that seemed to drive me to do the things I wanted. Feeling like I’ve been in somewhat of a creative rut, I decided it was time to rearrange my bedroom. I moved the bed closer to the window so I could wake up to the sun shining on me. I moved my desk to face my window so I could get a view of the river and white birds that fly around every now and again. There was room on the walls for me to put as much inspiration as I wanted to. Bearing in mind my line of work, I thought framed posters would do the trick.

Having come across Desenio a number of times on social media and loving their pieces, I decided to look through their website to see if I could find something that would speak to me. It didn’t take long enough for me to find something. The first poster that grabbed my eyes was one of a forrest on what would appear to be a very foggy day. The funny thing is that while growing up, I never seemed to like nature. But since taking up photography, nature has become my best friend and all I want to do is explore more of it. I found another foggy poster, this time, it was a shot of mountains. It was so beautiful and made me imagine the journey of the person who would took the shot. I decided it was going to be the largest poster of the bunch. The next was a poster of birds flying freely in the skies. This tied in with my dreams of traveling the world and living without limits. The remaining two posters were quotes. One with the word “love written on it. A word that embodies humanity and it’s very existence. The other had a quote which spoke for itself. It reads “it’s not what you have in life but who you have that matters”. Words I am learning to live by as I wake up to my framed inspirations.

Framing Some Inspiration For My Work

I’ll be sharing more of our home on the blog which will be a very warm space as you can tell by the image colour grading. Starting of is our living room which happens to have an open plan design that also connects the kitchen. Over the next coming months we hope to add new items and will showcase these pieces on the blog. I’m a strong believer in a home having a very personal feel to it. I love how almost every item has a story. We bought torn pages from a book that contained initials of our last name from the flee market in Manchester and put it in a frame.Craig seems to have a weird obsession for skulls. We have three scattered around this space.Some trinkets from our wedding and gifts from Craig’s mum sent from the Netherlands I remember when I ordered the house plants to surprise Craig but checked out with his Amazon account which ruined the surprise, lol. I love anything that has to do with the sea like anchors. I’ve always dreamt of living in a white house by the beach. Craig is into reading, me, not so much. I do use Audible though. We picked up this vintage camera from an antique store in Nottingham when we attended my brother’s graduation. This is the kitchen space where a lot of cooking in the oven takes place. I love a good breakfast tea with a slice of lemon. We tend to make our guests feels welcomed by having their names on the chalkboard after the word “welcome”. This door leads to our balcony which is one of the first space we decorated. It holds our remaining confetti from the wedding. I’ve always had a thing for pink and peonies. The balcony does take a life of its own.This is my very first bike which I bought one winter evening in 2016 not knowing how to ride it. Craig managed to teach me to ride and I have a video to prove it.
