Welcome to the beautiful world of Interior Design through my eyes. I am a college student who is intrigued by everything beautiful. Colors, shapes, patterns, positive and negative space, etc. From the simple principles and elements of design, to the technical work of an architect, I want to learn it all. I am easily stimulated visually and when I see a space that is bold and creative, it takes my breath away. I’ve always had a passion for art. In high school, I was in a program that was focused on visual arts. Years have gone by and that passion still exists. At one point in my life, I wanted to be a fashion designer. Then it moved into the direction of being a personal stylist. After that, I wanted to be a make-up artist for the stars. And now I’m here. Although I would watch the shows on HGTV, I never really thought about going in that direction with my career. Then I took a few classes in the fall of last year and fell in love with Interior Design. Being able to put my thoughts into reality by creating spaces for others seems like it would be rewarding. The process of creating a space is tedious, but the product is worth the effort.
Many people think Interior Design is just remodeling homes, but it’s much more than that. It’s about making changes in peoples’ lives by giving them a new fabulous space that they can be proud to come home to. I believe that a design can affect a person’s mood. Coming home to your “dream home” after a long stressful day at work I think would lift anyone’s spirit. Or waking up in the morning to your “dream home” would start anyone’s day off right. I‘d love to be an Interior designer because I’d have the ability to change lives.
Design is not only applied to homes, but everywhere. There is residential design as well on commercial design. Office buildings, schools, shopping malls, hotels, movie theaters, restaurants, parks, etc., all are examples of places that have to be thought up and put onto paper first. Cars, RVs, buses, computers, cell phones, even the writing utensils we use every day, were designed before being made into that final product that we use today. Last semester I went to a chair manufacturing company’s warehouse and I was amazed by how much thought and work it takes to put together a chair. We never think about these things when we sit in a chair, or use a pencil.
In my blog post, I will discuss the art of Interior Design from the inside out. I will talk about topics such as elements and principles of design, the process of creating a space, top designers and architects in the field, what it takes to be an Interior Designer, and much more. I hope I can share my love of design with my audience and learn much more about Interior Design along the way. Happy blogging!
