Do you have a smart phone? Well then you are in luck and can check out some of these awesome design apps that stylist home rounded up. I am especially interested in this one called Photo Measures. It allows you to snap or upload a photo and then dimension on top of the photo. This could be invaluable if you are out field measuring for a job or at least showing your boss so you won’t be given anymore chicken scratch plans that you have to decipher. 🙂 Another one that seems interesting is the Home Design Interior Space Planning Tool one called Mark on Call for the Ipad. It is exactly what it sounds like and is a mobile app that allows you to space plan on the go. Another great way to not forget your measurements.

I must admit that I very much enjoy coloring and have been known to color a kids coloring book when given the chance. Well imagine my excitement when I came across this post from Apartment Therapy where they featured coloring books that aren’t just for kids. One that grabbed me in particular is the Bernal Heights Architectural Coloring Book. It was created by architect Mason Kirby from elevations from past projects in Bernal Heights. You can click here to download the coloring book for free! I think it is a great opportunity for any student designer to practice their rendering skills without having to create a drawing from scratch.
