To start off my blog, I thought I would firstly introduce myself. Sophia is my name, I am a mum of one and I have been working as an Interior Designer now for around 5 years. Starting off working at Freedom furniture, I got a feel of what it was like to be around so many furniture pieces, materials, layers of textures and of course great likeminded collegues who loved helping customers make good furniture choices for their interiors.
As time went on, I realised that my interest in helping people create a space was in my blood. I used to hear customers come in and say, I don't know where to start, I dont know what colour to choose or I dont know how to layout the room. I used to jump in and say, I'll help you. I would sit down, draw up the space and layout the furniture for them. They loved that I was so passionate about it and it brought me great sales in the process :)
I decided then to formalise my skills by completing a Diploma in Interior Design with The Academy of Interior Design. Since then, I have had great opportunities to renovate, design and style properties. Whether it was a townhouse, apartment or just a single room the jobs kept coming through from word of mouth and that is how I have been getting clients as the years went on.
Having the opportunity to work in such a diverse and challenging industry is a privilege and being allowed to go into peoples home and help them create a dream space is what makes this job so rewarding. I will use this blog each month to talk about design, colour and many elements of design as it comes to help you create that beautiful interior you have always been dreaming off.
Thanks for reading.
