Hi Qoorious people! I have received the following question from Justas: When I was refurbishing my first apartment with the help of an interior designer whom I chose almost randomly, it turned out to be a horror story. Can you explain when people should work with an interior designer and how to choose one? First of all, I am so sorry to hear this sort of situation occurred, but as we know - 𝓢𝓫𝓪𝓰𝓵𝓲𝓪𝓷𝓭𝓸, 𝓼𝓲 𝓲𝓶𝓹𝓪𝓻𝓪! (it. one learns from mistakes) I would like to explain why it happens and how to avoid situations like this in the future for those, who are seeking the help of 𝓘𝓷𝓽𝓮𝓻𝓲𝓸𝓻 𝓓𝓮𝓼𝓲𝓰𝓷𝓮𝓻 So, when should one concider working with a 👤? The reasons are as follows: ▪︎ When one seeks 𝕀𝕟𝕕𝕚𝕧𝕚𝕕𝕦𝕒𝕝𝕚𝕥𝕪 ▪︎ has 𝕃𝕒𝕔𝕜 𝕠𝕗 𝕚𝕞𝕒𝕘𝕚𝕟𝕒𝕥𝕚𝕠𝕟 ▪︎ wants to save 𝕋𝕚𝕞𝕖 𝕒𝕟𝕕 𝕄𝕠𝕟𝕖𝕪 ▪︎ 𝔸𝕧𝕠𝕚𝕕 𝕤𝕥𝕣𝕖𝕤𝕤 𝕒𝕟𝕕 making 𝕞𝕚𝕤𝕥𝕒𝕜𝕖𝕤 If you are indecisive given the abundance of choices the market offers these days or simply because you got the money but don't have the time at all - it's time to consider hiring an 𝓘𝓷𝓽𝓮𝓻𝓲𝓸𝓻 𝓓𝓮𝓼𝓲𝓰𝓷𝓮𝓻 👤 can protect you from making mistakes regarding your finances, individuality and, especially, help you solve particular questions you got. Remember that beautiful interior?🥰 The one you saw the other day on Pinterest in one of those luxurious hotels with huge horse-like-sculptures as a torchere? 🤓 Well, first! Let's discuss the opportunity of having one in your apartment, if you should have one at all?🤷🏻‍♀️ Or even worse - bringing that wall down, which supports the whole construction?🤯 How about getting rid of that enormous hallway, because it cost you the same money as your living room but it's just remains empty?🤔 To sum up, 𝓘𝓷𝓽𝓮𝓻𝓲𝓸𝓻 𝓓𝓮𝓼𝓲𝓰𝓷𝓮𝓻 will always go an extra mile to introduce you the very best setting for your place, if he or she is the ℝ𝕀𝔾ℍ𝕋 𝕆ℕ𝔼 Now, you would probably ask - "How can I find the ℝ𝕀𝔾ℍ𝕋 𝕆ℕ𝔼, Athena?" My answer would be to choose the most suitable with these 2 criteria(obvious and not that obvious): 1. Obvious criteria ▪︎Portfolio What can we derive from it is the expertise: Refurbishing a countryside villa is completely opposite from arranging one bedroom apartment, just like designing residential from public spaces. On the other hand, portfolio makes it clear the 𝓑𝓻𝓪𝓷𝓭𝓼 ( luxurious or not) and a financial segment designer is working with. Aim for what you really need. Myths‼ The 𝓢𝓽𝔂𝓵𝓮 interior designer works in shouldn't be the main criteria. It's rather secondary, because professional 👤 are flexible in their work. Despite the fact, that the professional you would love to work with has majority of his objects designed in Classical style, he or she will be able to adjust the space exactly to your needs and preferences. That's what professionals do. However, there are also 👤, who work with one particular style or colour and they usually work solo. If you don't like 👤's vision and expression via space, then it would be best to work with interior design studio, who are predominantly focused on helping their clientele solving individual problems, rather than pushing one and only type of character. 2. Not that obvious factor ▪︎Social status Browse through 👤 social media and find the ℙ𝔼ℝ𝕊𝕆ℕ, who meets your expectation. In fact, choosing 👤 is similar to having new short-term family member! You must feel yourself comfortable sharing secrets with the particular 👤 you choose. ▪︎ Reviews Yes, reviews! They tend to be very subjective and you should trust only those written by the 👤 you trust, or at least know. That said, it might sound as a cliche but personal recommendations work the best. I could go like this forever... However, in conclusion I would love to emphasize that prior to choosing organisations, designers, professionals in general - choose them by the ℙ𝔼𝕆ℙ𝕃𝔼 they are, simply because there's just a ℙ𝔼ℝ𝕊𝕆ℕ staying behind every name. Who am I? First of all, a ℙ𝔼ℝ𝕊𝕆ℕ you can read about from Qoorio profile. Secondly, I am what I say without pretending and if we are on the same page, I would gladly help you create the space you desire. Below, I have attached one of the floor plans I made. I believe that in the first place, 𝔼𝕍𝔼ℝ𝕐 design project starts with space arrangement which functions just perfectly!

Imagine a world where your ability to get a job or seek an education depends on a blood test. Immunity passports might be big a threat for our freedom. Is the world going backwards? What’s your opinion? ‘It has happened before. For most of the nineteenth century, immunity to yellow fever divided people in New Orleans, Louisiana, between the ‘acclimated’ who had survived yellow fever and the ‘unacclimated’, who had not had the disease. Lack of immunity dictated whom people could marry, where they could work, and, for those forced into slavery, how much they were worth. Presumed immunity concentrated political and economic power in the hands of the wealthy elite, and was weaponized to justify white supremacy.’
Ten reasons why immunity passports are a bad idea

PRETEND. Einstein's theories of relativity arose not from his mathematical skills (he constantly needed to collaborate with mathematicians to make progress) but from his ability to pretend. He imagined himself as a photon moving at the speed of light, then imagined how the second photon might perceive it. What would that second photon see and feel? Barbara McClintock, who won a Nobel Prize for her discovery of genetic transposition ("jumping genes" that can change their place on the DNA stand), imagined gigantic versions of the molecular elements she was dealing with. She personalized even made friends with the elements she was studying. It may seem silly to stage a play in your mind's eye and imagine the elements and mechanisms you are studying or working on as living creatures with their own feelings and thoughts. But it's a method that works and helps you see and understand phenomena that you couldn't intuit. Discover and use your power of imagination and mimication in the work you do. From Barbara Oakley book "A mind for numbers" - The book for learning how to learn.

So interesting! I do that in my own practise, but never realised it could be applied so much further!

Did you know that only about 30% of the plastic gets turned into new plastic after recycling. It’s better than none, but it’s not so efficient as you might think. This engineered enzyme can convert 90% plastic to its starting material. Also, bigger part of the PET bottles are melt down in grey or black material and most of the companies don’t want to use it. (Black should be the new black. )
‘A huge step forward.’ Mutant enzyme could vastly improve recycling of plastic bottles

Same event, 2 different reactions, we choose how we feel. Choose happiness.
Let me show you my 𝓗𝓸𝓶𝓮 𝓸𝓯𝓯𝓲𝓬𝓮... Yes, it's basically it- just a PC is everything you need in the 21st century. Besides, it's everything we draw our attention to nowadays, so when you're working from home: ◇ Try getting close to your window and enjoy the sky or nature view, instead of your fellow workers desks. ◇ Leave space around in order to avoid feeling cramped. More space - the better you breathe. Things around you create unnoticeable impact on your emotional state. ◇ Choose light and mobile furniture. Believe me, you'll wanna move around before finally discovering the perfect spot for you😁 I am using an easel as my desk and chrome armchair from IKEA,( both are super comfy to move in case of few amendments to the space) decorated with fluffy snow-white plaid from Jysk🖤

TO BOOST PRODUCTIVITY. I found out that writing a journal is one of the best way to stay focused and use my time and energy effectively. >> Once a week I write a brief weekly list of key tasks (up to 20 items). >> I create daily to-do list from the items on the weekly to-do list (5-10 items). >> Try to write a daily task list in the evening before (research has shown this helps your subconscious to grapple with the tasks on the list so you figure out how to accomplish them). >> Set goals finish time. >> I tell myself: "I've finished for today" and have a relax time or do something fun. Tip: try to improvise to develop a system that works for you. For example, I've noticed that sometimes I overestimate how many tasks I can do in a day, so started drawing cubics (1 cubic - 1 hour) to see how much time each task will need and understand how many I can manage in a day.

Great tips, thanks for sharing!

How breathing techniques can help you learn faster. The key is to apply these two principles: >> first you need to focus. Bring yourself to heightened state of alertness. Do super oxygenated breathing (like Wim Hof or kundalini breathings). >> then you want to drop yourself to a state of calm. Do that with ‘inhale -> inhale -> exhale’ breathing couple of rounds. Then your brain is in a state of hightent learning because of higher levels of neuro chemicals like sydocolin. I haven't tested yet, but very keen to try and see if it really works. P.S. a great video about growth mindset & neuro plasticity explained in a very simple way. Worth your time!

IMPROVE READING. You can create little neural hooks to hang your thinking on, making reading an article, book, etc. easier to grasp: >> Take a "picture walk" through the article. >> Glance not only at the graphics, photos, but also headings, summary and even highlights/questions at the the end if the article has them. >> Read the article. You'll be surprised at how spending a minute or two glancing ahead before you read in depth will help you organise your thoughts. TIP: if you want it really stick! After you've finished the article - summarise it (write it down or tell it yourself). And if you be able to explain it to a 5-year-old (means as simply as possible), then you’ve really learned and understood it.
Seasons are shifting: winters are shorter, spring is earlier, summers are longer and fall arrives later. Moreover, the intermediary seasons as f.e. sprinter or sprummer might become regular phenomena. Disruptions in the timing of these events makes a variety of impacts on ecosystems. Environmental changes cause many trees and flowers to bloom earlier than typical, an earlier spring might lead to longer growing seasons. Unusually warm weather in late winter can create a “false spring” that triggers the new growth of plants to begin too early, leaving them vulnerable to any subsequent frosts. Gardens as ecosystems are impacted as well. When buying a plant from a nursery its important to know that every plant is marked with a number indicating its hardiness zone. A hardiness zone is a geographic area defined to encompass a certain range of climatic conditions relevant to plant growth and survival. Because of warmer global temperatures planting zones are shifting further north. Lithuania is in zones 5a, 5b, 6a, 6b, 7a and 7b. Analyzing the plants map leads into discoveries like f. e. territories of zone 7 include parts of Lithuania as well as part of France, meaning that the same plants can grow in both countries. https://www.plantmaps.com/interactive-lithuania-plant-hardiness-zone-map-celsius.php

Purchasing a piece of vintage furniture is no different than buying a puppy - both require a bit of research, care and loving hands of a human, and it can certainly help save the environment! That said, let's discuss items to consider prior to becoming a new owner: ✔ Sustainability It's a wonderful investment as many are much sounder in constructing than any modern pieces of pressed wood or chipboard. ✔ Think form and fuction. You certainly don't want the item neither to take up the whole space, nor to fall out of your current design. ✔ Do research. Some can be rear collectables and some are just beautiful, so research a bit. ✔ Pay attention to the details. Refinishing is more expensive than a simple good cleaning. ✔ Negotiate. Don't hesitate asking the clerk about discounts. Many shops apply further reduces in price to the unsold items. ✔ Love. Just like every other person or thing, it requires love and care. Moreover, if you treat it like a treasure, it won't decrease in value. Not to mention, if you look further, vintage furniture can range between mid century modern, Art Deco and classical furniture pieces.
