PANTONE PREMONITION

Something that has been haunting me for a few weeks now, is how much we are all missing human interaction – yet we never spoke to our neighbours. We long for face to face contact, and yet sitting on the train everyone has always had their faces firmly in their phone screens- never thinking to look up and smile at the person opposite you.

RIBA House of the Year

It truly doesn’t surprise me that a house in the Scottish Highlands has been awarded RIBA house of the year. I might be slightly biased, as I come from Scotland, however I think that it is a very inspiring part of the world and I feel that the space compliments the surroundings perfectly.
