- You are not thinking creatively enough
- You are looking at what was designed a year ago
- You will inevitably copy what you're looking at, intentionally or not.
My all time favorite source of inspiration for The Soap Lab is looking at modern furniture and interior design, and since I'm a mom of 2 little kids I thank god for catalogs or else I would never know what's going on!
Interior design is a great source of ideas since it focuses on textures, color, shapes, and light. These are all elements that are perfect to interpret with glycerin. I have chosen some pictures that translate into some beautiful soaps (from www.westelm.com).
Tomorrow I will show you how I turned a classic Parsons Table into a new soap. See you then!
