I created this blog to share my journey of becoming an interior designer. For as long as I can remember, I have always had an interest in design. As I sit and think back on my childhood, I kind of suppressed my interest in design because of insecurities of who I truly was and what others would think about me doing something that appeared to be a woman’s industry in the small town I grew up in. Luckily, as time passed I never lost the interest; and now as an adult I am ready to manifest the gift of design that I know I was born with.
Excitingly, this fall I will be enrolling at the Art Institute of Houston to study Interior design. I would have never thought in a million years I would be placing myself in a position to prepare for a career that at one point I didn’t even believe was possible. I didn’t grow up hearing people say, “When I grow up I want to be an interior designer.” It was always a doctor, a lawyer, a teacher, etc. I didn’t have the language to even know what to call what it was I knew I loved to do.
Im blessed that even though I am on the journey to becoming a designer, people are supporting me by giving me the opportunity to do design projects in their homes. The experience I am gaining from being hands-on now is only preparing me for whats to come. Each project is teaching me something about design that I didn’t know before. Below is a photo of one of the projects I am currently working on. I can wait until we complete this room and share the photos of the room completed.
