1) In your own words describe your unique style and creative aesthetic?
My style is simplified, fresh and feminine. I adore airy spaces with white or bright pastel colors as a background and a few splashes of color as an accent.
2) When starting a new project, what is your creative process?
It always starts with defining the idea in my mind, accompanied by huge excitement, then comes the research which usually is the most fun part of all and last is fitting all parts together to achieve the best result.
3) Out of the creative people you have worked with, who is it that you respect and admire the most?
I appreciate the creativity and the unique personality of all the people that I work with, but the first person that comes to my mind is Ronique Gibson. She is an architect, a prominent blogger, a book writer and a radio show host, social media and e-consultant and a mother of three. It’s like all in one wrapped in a beautiful package. Her persistence, endless energy and creativity are truly inspiring. And what is more she’s the loveliest person ever!
4) When looking for inspiration is there a particular thing you do to get inspired?
Since I’m usually stuck on my lap top for 12 hours a day, if I need inspiration I just go outside. This could be out for a walk, out of town for the weekend or just a day at the beach. It really clears my thoughts and helps me focus on the current tasks.
5) What has brought you to this point in your career? And what is your advice for people looking to follow in your footsteps?
If I have to choose one, that’s probably my tenacity. I literally started from zero and took small steps each day and I still do. Constant improvement is what leads to success. To all the people interested in blogging and interior design I’d recommend to be persistent, patient and hard-working. Not giving up always pays off.
