I have a had a passion for Interior design from the first time I was allowed to decorate my own room at the age of 10. Coupled with Project Management and Accountancy experience, I can offer a beautiful Design vision backed up with solid plans and budgets.
My first Interior Design was a beautiful primary colour vision with a Royal Blue carpet, white walls, red bedding and egg yolk yellow woodwork. I thought it was the bees knees and so did Adam Ant. Unfortunately, he was only a picture hanging in my wardrobe, but I am sure he would have gone for it if he had seen it!
My next venture was a riot of pink roses, brown accents and lots of hard work to cover up the yellow paintwork. My dad made ME paint the several coats to take the yellow woodwork colour back to white. I left school as the first person in my family to have an ART qualification, and.......decided to become an accountant.
After many years of dealing with numbers (creatively), I decided to move on, having taken an evening class in 'Architecture in London', and 'Basic Interior Design Principles, I then decided to become.......an IT Project Manager.
Finally, after being made redundant from my last job and with time on my hands, I have decided to take the next step to running my own business. I enrolled in a Diploma in Professional Interior Design from the National Design Academy, undertook several Interior Design projects, and am now running a business to offer Interior Design Services to people like me who live in a small terraced property in London with limited space, who want to make the best of what they have.
The best boost to my confidence for this move is that when people visit my home, they ask what do I do, and ask if I am an Interior Designer.
I can now say Yes!
