Lígia Casanova Interior Design

January 22, 2011

Hello friends! Before I sign off for the weekend I want to direct you to the site of Lígia Casanova, an interior designer with an inspiring kitchen + dining room in her online portfolio. I know that the photos are quite light, that is how they appear on her website so there is unfortunately not much I can do to Photoshop them — but they’re still very inspirational.

Lígia Casanova obtained her master’s degree in graphic design back in 1987 and went on to work in advertising and design until she found her true calling in 1995 as an interior designer. She wants to, “Make Room For Happiness” in all that she does. I feel happy looking at all of the little details in the space from the appliqued curtains to the multi-colored chairs, lighting over the table, pillows on the floor, crochet rug and the lovely art wall in the dining area.

I hope that you, likeLígia, will find ways to make room for happiness this weekend. I can’t wait to visit with you again on Monday when Leslie will be back with her monthly dose of Color Me Pretty to inspire your creativity for January — she is shooting in her studio this weekend so prepare for gorgeous results on decor8 Monday morning! Much love to you all. xo

The Creative Finder

January 14, 2011

I received some information about The Creative Finder and thought it could potentially be a good resource to share with those of you looking to either find or hire someone in a creative field OR if you want to find work or share your portfolio online. MySpace has become the spot for indie musicians to network, perhaps The Creative Finder will be a sort of MySpace for creatives? Only time will tell.

For now, have a look around and tell me what you think. There are not many portfolios on the site yet but let’s hope they’ll grow because the potential is there. The only problem I see is that it doesn’t seem to be curated so it could become difficult for companies to use this site if it is not curated somehow — I think that is the main reason why so many companies work straight through agents to find talent, this work is all done for them. Perhaps The Creative Finder can think of a way to make it work long term.

About The Creative Finder, “The Creative Finder is a global directory that targets businesses looking to hire professional creatives such as illustrators, photographers, designers, and art directors…. it is also a platform that allows creatives to manage their works and maximize their exposure towards decision-makers across all industries and countries, via both online and offline channels.”

You can find the work of stylists, photographers, illustrators, music composers and more on this site AND if you are a creative looking to network, why not join (a basic account is free) and see what happens? Spread the word if you feel this site could be helpful to you and your friends, too!
