What is one of the biggest misconceptions people have about being an interior designer? What are the most rewarding and challenging parts of your work?
Some people think we just shop all day and pick our paint colors all day. I actually really like the technical side of it. I love building things, doing AutoCAD drawings, and I love working with architects and contractors to figure out how to bring a design concept to life. Thinking of an innovative space solution is exhilarating, but that’s only half of the equation. Then it needs to be constructed in a safe and high-quality way. I probably shouldn’t admit this, but I sometimes get emotional when I see my designs in real life for the first time. It’s surreal to have something that only existed in your head suddenly have a permanent physical presence. It never gets old for me.
