A continuation of my ‘who is bec’ through 5 senses.
Sitting here with absolutely no thought into this one as yet, but I have time so why not.
… trying to work out things that I ‘see’ that I like, or hate etc… that aren’t just obvious, also what other angles you can come in on things.
big factor: design, I really like things to be aesthetically nice. From words, to art, to photographs, to scenery, to the way I have my room, to what kind of journal I use… and sadly the influence it has upon books I look at buying – although that can be sometimes overlooked.
I get annoyed when I see stores or books using crummy fonts (well known, or ‘grade 6 style’)… this could be partial ‘geek/nerd’ factor. see: ban comic sans
I frustrate people with having to ‘get it right’
General taste. it comes down to being selective, relatively minimalistic, and um… coordinated when called for 😛
Random things take my fancy 🙂 the terrace house with the orange door.
Satistfying layouts… colour used effectively.
Specifics – (to like)
A clear, dark sky with stars
Bare green hills (‘rolling hills’ too cliched to use but yeah, them)
Flat of the outback, where you can do a 360 and see nothing but horizion, the small feeling you get.
Interesting people on trains – ‘the characters’
‘Borders’ – rows and rows and rows of books
The view over melbourne from Sky High or Burkes lookout
The fireplace at my grandparents and their horrible carpet
The plaque in my grandpa’s garden, ever overgrown, the words mostly worn.
Specifics (to not like)
Pinkness, the overuse. Frills and bows, flowers.
The KFC in Bayswater – minimalistic is only good to a certain point.
Clothing with the brandname plastered across the front.
A sink full of dishes
…hmm thats about all I can think of.
Qu’s & A’s
– yes I don’t mind Fed Square, it looks good.
– yes I would re-do some of my room, had I the money or time
– no my taste doesn’t unfortunately make it into fashion – in that I am a practical/immitator. I take siblings for shopping advice. I don’t really have my own unique style
– yes I get unusual fascinations with things like, chairs, doors, fonts and colours… so. maybe its a little strange – let people think that.
