I’m Malcolm, welcome to Designsixtynine!
If you’ve stumbled upon my wee blog it is either;
A: Because you’ve followed a link through pinterest or Instagram, in which case, THANK YOU! and please PLEEEAAASE feel free to stick around…there’s much more to come!
B: I’ve somehow infiltrated the design/DIY blogosphere and you are a design/DIY fanatic who is interested in what I have to show (hahaha…a guy can dream!!)
C: Your dodgy porn search has thrown you a curve ball :/ …in which case, relax, take it easy and maybe let design 69 be a regular break for your browser history.
Whichever way you’ve found me, the important thing is you are here, so get comfy and I’ll tell you all about me…
I am an inspiration addict. It’s just EVERYHERE!! How can I not be?! Pinterest consumes my life, so I guess blogging could be my new ‘healthy obsession’, right?
Professionally, I am an Art and Design Lecturer at the college here in Aberdeen, Scotland. It’s a great career which allows me to go in to work every day to talk about and do what I love. Pretty cushy really. It also allowed me to do the best thing of all…. YOU GUYS, I BOUGHT A HOUSE!! *cue tumbleweed.
After two flats (apartments, to my American friends) which I loved, I have finally moved up the property ladder a few rungs and progressed to a beautiful 3 bed terraced house. I’ve lived here for a year and am very proud to call it home. Although I have made a very good start on its refurb, there is still a long way to go! I have documented every step…including the fails, and will be sharing it all here, along with some DIY projects and perhaps the odd bit of design inspiration.
So please, stick with this 30-something, Scottish, design obsessed DIY’er…even if it’s just to laugh at my failures…
I promise you, it’ll all be done in the best possible taste!
Award winning interior blogger, artist, DIY'er and self confessed inspiration addict. Join me as I renovate my Victorian terraced house....on the cheap, like the true penny pinching Scot I am! Read More…
