Homemade Dollhouse

When I was young, I always dreamt of having a doll house. I would see commercials of these beautiful, highly decorative doll houses and thought “I need to get my…

De-cluttered Pantry Using Design Philosophy

Okay so yes I’m a graphic designer by profession but I bring my design eye into everything I do.  Just like everyone my home gets into a cluttered mess at times. My latest project was my pantry.
Every time I went in there it was driving me crazy because it would take me so much time to find anything in there and often times I completely missed that I had something stuck under a basket or pile of other stuff. So I decided to do something about it. With a little budget I decided to cluttered, throw away things I didn’t use or were expired and completely empty every shelf. I looked at every single item and tossed out probably 1/3 of the items that just weren’t any good anymore. I then purchased clear canisters of a variety of sizes to house all the dried cooking ingredients that I use often. After that I purchased a few wire baskets and clear shelf baskets to house miscellaneous items like canned goods and dried food packets. It was about a 2 day project all in, but can I tell you it was like a therapy session!

E3 2018

Not only were the games fun to experience and take in but the booth design and graphics associated to the live events are always my favorite. By far the most impressive layout was the Fortnite setup. Even had a chance to indulge in some live dancing with a Fortnite character. Had lunch while grooving to the Super Soul Bros. One day I’m going to have to hire them for some fun event! As always there was a pretty nice display of vintage memorabilia from the gaming industry which we always gravitate towards. Makes me feel like a kid again. People were going crazy for the Mystery Chest / Mystery Boxes. The boxes themselves were awesome to look at but when I asked a few folks how the gear was that they got inside they were less than enthused. New new Spider-Man trailer was pretty epic and the new Pokemon Game trailer had everyone screaming and clapping.

Tween Boys Room Makeover

Featured Project // My son’s tween room makeover
About a year ago I started looking at my then 9-year old’s room and realized it was a total “baby room.” It still had the same pastel blue walls, baby rug with city lines to ride his cars on, car bedding etc. That’s when I started this mission to re-do his room into something he can grow in and not feel like it’s a little boy’s room. Now 10 he is so excited to have his “grown up” room.

Today we’d like to introduce you to Vani Gundara.

So, before we jump into specific questions about the business, why don’t you give us some details about you and your story.
Born and raised in the Valley. Yup I’m a “Valley Girl!” I’ve always been drawn to color, shapes, design and all things creative. My parents say they knew they had a budding artist when they caught me with a crayon in my hand sliding up and down the staircase at age 2 marking up the walls to see what pattern it would make as I descended. Luckily for me they encouraged and provided me with all the tools I needed to explore my passion. By the age of 10 I had a full portfolio of all my drawings which included my renditions of my favorite Disney Characters including my favorite of all time (Maleficent). By middle school, I started to dive into the modern / graphic arts and stopped copying stuff I had seen but started to draw and paint my own mixed media creations. I colored on everything from my favorite shoes to my backpacks.
