I am Phillipa and it is my pleasure to introduce myself to Style The Home’s Interior Design community! I am very much looking forward to blogging about new styles, trends and of course new and upcoming Interior Design companies.
A little bit about me:
I have experience in Exhibition and Corporate Hospitality, where I worked as a Junior Designer. More recently I have worked on a residential renovation project and completed my Masters Degree in Interior Design. All of which I have thoroughly enjoyed and learnt a great deal. Writing for Style The Home gives me the opportunity to share with all of you aspects of Interior Design that I appreciate and want to endorse.
On a personal level I have always enjoyed being creative; I love to paint, draw, and some might say generally make a bit of a mess; my easel has it’s work cut out. In my free time I find there is always space for a bit rejuvenating yoga, and a good home cooked meal, as I am a bit of a foodie. Ok, well, a lot of a foodie…my most recent baking creation was a four-tier red velvet cake, which it would have been rude not to help eat!
My Design Values:
On an individual level I am a fan of ‘less is more’. Yes I know it’s hard to achieve because there are so many beautiful and amazing styles in this world, and of course there is always the dreaded clutter - but we can hide that. They say the easy choice isn’t always the right choice, and this is a great motto for designing an interior. My favourite style of interior is one that is personal to the occupants, designed around their personalities and beliefs. This creates an individual environment that suits their lifestyle, whatever that may be.
I also discuss my own value of design and creativity on my newly released blog. Check it out here!
I look forward to sharing my thoughts and ideas with you in January, in the mean time have a Fabulous New Year!
