Drawing interiors…

This is a glimpse into something that seems a very long time ago. The other day, whilst writing some answers for an interview, I was looking for some of my work from my student days. Most of you won't know that I did a course in spatial design. You see, I always thought interior design was what I wanted to do, that it was the profession of my dreams. It wasn't until later that I realised that one of the essential components of this profession - technical drawings - really wasn't for me. I just don't have a mathematical or technical mind.

I can 'see' things clearly in my head, I can imagine how to achieve a look or put together a setting, but spending hours at a drawing board with rulers and measurements creating floor plans is simply not something I thrive on - in fact, I actively dislike that part. The strange thing is that I did actually enjoy the perspective drawings - possibly because it's more of an artist's impression (albeit one to strict measurements) of an interior than a floor plan… 

Anyway, I knew that I absolutely wanted to stay in the field of interiors and the realisation that the very technical part wasn't for me hasn't stopped me from pursuing that dream. Instead it has led me to slightly alter directions into an area that truly makes me happy and where I'm slowly building up work: interiors styling. So far, nobody has asked me to produce a detailed floor plan and I'm quite happy to leave that one to the professional interior designers. Still, it's nice to occasionally look back, reflect on what we've done and how certain decisions have changed how we view things and ourselves. I can look at these drawings and feel slightly melancholic, but I know that I've made the right decision for myself.
