Matthew McCartan Inspiration
Interior Design has always been a passion to me, Buildings, Architecture, Art, furniture, accessories, Structural Design and how things work.
People often ask me, what made me what to be a designer?.
"When I look at buildings, pieces of art or furniture. I don’t just look at the face value of the object, it makes me look at the detail the workmanship the use of colours, material and texture,I ask my self what made the designer, design it like this?, what was there view on the interpretation of there design? and how they thought people would interpret there vision?. When I design building or interiors. I design from the heart I see my design as I stand and look at the empty spaces, I can visualize my thoughts and design as I look around, then I interpret my vision on paper".
What makes me enjoy being a designer ?.
"There is nothing better to make the hairs on the back of your neck and to give you a smile from ear to ear when you stand for the first time and see your vision come from paper to creation as you stand there looking at the finished product".
And Happy Shopping
