INTERIOR DESIGN INSPIRATION FOUR SEASONS OF LOVE

Hello Design Desire readers,

I often gain my design inspiration from my observation from various resources. From the environment I'm in, the places I visits such as museums, hotels, bars and shop displays. A plate of dessert which is beautifully created by the chef to an album sleeve design from my favourite stars!

Since this month I'm celebrating the two year anniversary of my hardcover for Donna Summer The Thrill Goes On - A Tribute, I would love to share with you my design thinking for one of her album sleeve designs.

"Endless stories and inspiration can be gained from Summer’s music and album art work. For example, the ‘Four Seasons Of Love’ album sleeve colour palate is like a room with dark solid wood flooring! Summer’s coat on ‘Winter Melody’ conjures up a warm room with a deep textured cream rug to soften the floor. The continuous music play and Summer’s sensual voice is reminiscent of the ergonomic shape of a 1971 classic ‘Bocca’ seating that was itself inspired by a Salvador Dali painting, ‘The Face Of Mae West’. The song choruses are the essence of spring, with pinks, blues, and yellows providing a palate for the walls. Summer’s version of Marilyn Monroe’s ‘The Seven Year Itch’ scene with its billowing white dress is the silk curtain that falls to the floor, creating a sense of drama and romance when the summer winds blows from the window." (Donna Summer The Thrill Goes On - A Tribute, 2012 / 2013)

INTERIOR DESIGN INSPIRATION FOR SEASONS OF LOVE Malay Translation:

Hello pembaca Design Desire,

Saya sering mendapat inspirasi rekaan saya dari pemerhatian saya dari pelbagai sumber. Dari persekitaran saya, tempat-tempat yang saya lawati seperti muzium, hotel, bar dan pameran di kedai. Satu makanan pada pinggan pencuci mulut yang dicipta indah oleh chef ke reka bentuk sampul album daripada bintang kegemaran saya!

Oleh kerana bulan ini saya menyambut ulang tahun ke-dua tahun untuk hardback untuk buku Donna Summer The Thrill Goes On - A Tribute saya, ingin saya berkongsi dengan semua reka bentuk fikiran saya dari salah satu reka bentuk sampul album beliau.

"Banyak cerita-cerita yang tidak berkesudahan dan inspirasi boleh diperolehi dari muzik dan album kerja seni Donna Summer ini. Sebagai contoh, album 'Four Seasons Of Love' penuh dengan warna seperti bilik dengan lantai kayu pepejal yang gelap! Kot musim sejuk pada 'Winter Melody' adalah seperti sumber memanaskan bilik dengan permaidani krim bertekstur untuk melembutkan lantai. Mainan muzik yang berterusan dan suara sensual Donna Summer ini mengingatkan bentuk yang ergonomik tempat duduk 'Bocca' ciptaan klasik 1971 yang diilhamkan oleh lukisan Salvador Dali, ‘The Face Of Mae West. Lagu-lagu pada korus adalah intipati musim bunga, dengan warna jambu merah jambu, biru, dan kuning menyediakan hiasan untuk dinding. Versi gambar Donna Summer daripada Marilyn Monroe pada ‘The Seven Year Itch’ dengan layaran hembusan angin yang berpakaian putih adalah tirai sutera yang jatuh ke lantai, mewujudkan rasa drama dan romantik apabila musim panas angin bertiup dari tingkap." (Donna Summer The Thrill Goes On - A Tribute, 2012 / 2013)

Ini adalah imej untuk pemikiran rekaan saya. Selamat Nikmati!

THE NOSTALGIA OF EID CELEBRATION... ‘HARI RAYA’

Most celebrations have their very own nostalgia. 

Personally when I turn back the clock the most exciting part of the festival was the prospect of meeting all my close and distant family member, travelling around Malaysia to see them in their homes and sharing in all the wonderful food that was prepared in anticipation of the start of the Eid celebration.

Mother’s cooking in the kitchen, while father made lists of foods to buy. This brought smile to my face.

I was also excited by the idea of getting the chance to play with fireworks! As a child I was also very happy to receive little gifts of money – Duit Raya. 

As one matures one tends to reflect more deeply on what Ramadan is supposed to be about but as a child it was what we did in the run up to Eid which was what we were really looking forward to. One of the fondest memories is of sitting as a family together in the late afternoon, just relaxing and talking and talking until the end of the day.

Finally as everybody gradually said their goodbyes and left for their homes, I will roll up my sleeves and taking the mop and vacuum, clear all the mess! 

Finally, I say Selamat Hari Raya, Maaz Zahir Batin.

THE NOSTALGIA OF EID CELEBRATION... 'HARI RAYA' Malay Translation:


Kebanyakan perayaan mempunyai nostalgia mereka sendiri. 

Secara peribadi apabila saya mengenangkan kembali zaman kebahagian yang paling menarik daripada perayaan ini ialah prospek menemuai semua ahli keluarga yang dekat dan jauh, perjalanan di seluruh Malaysia untuk melawat mereka di rumah mereka dan berkongsi semua makanan yang lazat yang telah disediakan semasa menjangka memulakan perayaan Hari Raya ini. 

Mak memasak di dapur, manakala abah membuat senarai makanan untuk di beli. Ini membawa senyuman kepada wajah saya. 

Saya juga teruja dengan idea mendapatkan peluang untuk bermain dengan bunga api! Sebagai seorang kanak kecil saya juga sangat gembira untuk menerima hadiah sedikit wang - Duit Raya. 

Sebagai salah seorang yang matang apabila dewasa pemikiran saya cenderung untuk mencerminkan perayaan ini dengan lebih mendalam mengenai apakah erti Ramadan yang sebenar nya tetapi sebagai kanak-kanak ia adalah sesuatu yang tidak sabar kita lakukan dalam jangka masa menyambut kedatangan Hari Raya. Salah satu kenangan indah adalah berkumpul sebagai sebuah keluarga bersama-sama pada lewat petang, hanya santai dan bercakap-cakap sehingga akhir hari. 

Akhirnya semua ahli keluarga mula beransur-ansur berkata selamat tinggal dan berangkat ke rumah masing-masing, saya akan menggulung lengan baju saya dan mengambil mop dan vakum, jelas semua keadaan rumah kelihatan kucar-kacir! 

Akhir sekali, saya mengatakan Selamat Hari Raya, Maaz Zahir Batin.
