Source of Inspiration: Travel
Written by Andrew Martin | July 31st 2020
I recently posted about a project we completed for beauty brand Blink Brow Bar in 2018, which was heavily inspired by a trip to India I’d taken that year. Our brief was to create a calm, spa-like environment within Westfield White City – a very busy shopping centre. The atmosphere I wanted to create reminded me of the relief you feel when finding a quiet café, escaping the chaotic streets of Deli for a moment…
Personally, I’ve always embraced the opportunity to immerse myself in new cultures and professionally, travel has played a huge role in terms of inspiration for AMD projects. With Blink Brow Bar in particular, I was able to draw direct experiences from a (well timed) trip and relay them back through bespoke interior design.
Like most of us, I’m reminded during lockdown what an absolute privilege travel is. It brings me back to when I was growing up and holidays were fairly limited. We’d either go up North to Grimsby to see my cousins or head South to Selsey, where some friends of my parents had a holiday chalet.
