I love all things beautiful, but there is always something extra special about things that were saved from the curb or handmade. A lot of the things I have in my home are admittedly made. Sometimes I have no idea what I’m doing when I start a project, and other times I have a really clear vision. Sometimes I make things for the pure joy of creating and problem solving, and other times it’s because I have yet to earn a sufficient income to acquire every beautiful thing that catches my eye. I’m guessing you can relate… (:
I received my BFA in graphic design, but I am currently a product designer by day. And as I’ve come to learn more and more about the creative world I’ve realized that my truest design passion is actually for interior design. Go figure.
Follow along with me as I work on creating a space that inspires me in our current little 1970’s apartment. For a long time I didn’t think that anything inspiring could be born from a plain, very unexciting rental, but I’ve realized that simply isn’t true. Just because I can’t install the marble counters and brass light fixtures of my dreams doesn’t mean I can’t incorporate other things that inspire me into our space and transition them with us when that time comes. Believe me, much of my brain’s down-time is spent day dreaming up beautiful houses, but just because I’m not living in one of those houses yet doesn’t mean I need to put my design-passion on hold.
