2012 Design Tour of Italy
Thanks to Uptiles, Brisbane – http://www.uptiles.net/
After winning the award for ‘Best use of Impronta & Tau products in design’ by Up Tiles I received a special prize – A TRIP TO ITALY! I was overwhelmed and very excited to have the opportunity to go on another design tour in Europe. Last years trip was amazing and I came back with plethora of great design ideas and found myself way ahead of the trend in Australia which tends to come about a few months after their showcased overseas.
My recent trip to Italy is proving to have the same effect. As I begin designing in 2013 I find myself flowing with incredible ideas that are unique in the industry. I look forward to taking on new clients this year and offering them unique, specialised looks.
I started by attending the Cersaie Design Fair – http://www.cersaie.it/en/index.php
Here are some of the great things I found –
1. A strong trend in minimalist bathroom designs.
2. Extravagant textures
3. Emphasis on natural materials
…and of course I had a wonderful time outside the fair exploring the sites.
