Happy Anniversary….to us!
July 2015, marked ORA studio blog’s 4 year anniversary. Out of curiosity, I looked up the symbols for wedding anniversaries and for 4 years of marriage the Modern symbol is appliances, I thought this is a perfect symbol for a four year anniversary for a blog about Architecture, Interior Design, and lifestyle.
This has been a journey, learning about how to “blog” and capturing the essence of a topic in a concise and entertaining format. This endeavor has stretched my capabilities, both as a writer and as a business person in this age of social media. It has allowed me to express my creativity in a whole new format, and reach out to Design lovers in a new medium.
In July of 2011, I wrote a mission statement and purpose for this blog as the first entry: “I will explore ideas and practices as they relate to Architecture, Design and Lifestyle…As an Italian Architect/Interior Designer I strive to create harmony and have a clear creative vision keeping in mind the idea of simple luxury that is modern and comfortable. This quest for harmony expands into daily life.”
My intention with the blog has not changed. I constantly strive to find that harmony in design, whether it be Residential of Commercial and through this blog, illustrate that through my Project images and also images from life that inspire me. As I move forward, I hope that my writing and work evolves and that I can capture the interest of readers and other bloggers who read my posts.
Writing a blog was new territory for me, and something I had to learn by trial and error, but this blog is a successful tool to educate and inspire others to see the potential of their space and encourage them to approach design in a different way, and also to spread the word about my work, my firm and my design philosophy.
It has also put in place a goal, I know that every month I will create a new blog article and that keeps my eyes always open to new ideas, and design inspirations from my Projects and from Art, Fashion, Food, and Music… It has been a fantastic 4 years, and I look forward to many more “blogging” anniversaries.
Thank you to all who read this blog and leave such wonderful comments, I love hearing feedback, it is both reaffirming and motivating!
