After much prodding by my older brother Tyler to join the ranks of online bloggers, including himself (http://www.plansforusblog.com/, I have finally given in and admitted that it might not be such a terrible thing...might even be great. A little background and an introduction to get you all hooked (and me, a starting point)...Basically, I've been a designer one way or the other since as far back as I can remember. Back in the day it wasn't very sophisticated...doing my own "inspiration boards" with Laura Ashley catalogues was hardly cutting edge, but I was on my way. Flash forward to now...I've been enrolled in the UCLA Extension Interior Design program for the last year and a half, and very shortly after beginning the program I decided to start my own residential interior design company, Nest Interiors. I go to school full time and have been getting consistent part-time work through my company, so I've been pretty busy for awhile now. I thought about working for another company, but scratched the idea because 1) I'd prefer to run the show (I'm probably too stubborn on that point for my young age, 25, but there it is... 2) It's so much more flexible 3) Finishing a project and making my client happy is the biggest high there is and 4) I get to spend a lot more time with my crazy dog Morris. I'm looking forward to posting my ideas, my thoughts on starting and running a business as a mid-twenties woman, and a lot of links and photos to great products and some ongoing and finished work of my own. This first set of photos will be my visual intro- a photo of my dog, a photo of my first finished project, and a photo of me, just so you know what Nest Interiors looks like.
