COMBINING INTERIOR DESIGN & ILLUSTRATION

Tuesday, 15 November 2016



Hello friends!

I've been contemplating this step for a while now but I feel like it's necessary. I will be officially taking a break from blogging until the New Year. For those who have been following me for a while now, you have watched my progress throughout the college days, and seen my passion towards the industry. My passion and love for interior design grows daily. It seems slightly cheesy but it's absolutely true. I can't wait for that moment in my career that I'd be able to look back and see my design contribution made to communities. I'll be sure to share that moment with you all, as you have truly been part of my design journey.

For now though, I'm temporary rerouting my side plans. 

Throughout my years of design school, I have always felt an enormous challenge when it came to sketching, drawing and rendering. Most of my classmates had a background in art but I was very contrary. I had a background in science and in finance. My sisters are very talented and artistic. They both have a background in fine arts. Growing up and seeing them draw and paint, I always wondered how can I obtain such talent but as time went on, I stopped wondering. As my high school years came to be, I knew art wasn't for me so I decided to pursue drama. Eight years after graduating high school, I find myself in an artistic field. For the first time in my life, I have found a passion for sketching and illustrating but this didn't happen over night. 

In my first two years of design school I struggled to get by the drawing part of the program. It wasn't something I was good at. When I had artistic assignments, it was a complete fail for me. I didn't actually fail the assignments but the struggle to get a fair grade was real! It was always a comparison game for me and seeing what others was capable of, made me feel like there was a LONG way to go to develop my drawing skills. As I continue to draw, I realized I had a very illustrative style. In interior design, it's not the ideal style to have, as we are required to produce realism rendition of spaces. With a lot of practice and sleepless nights drawing and rendering, I learned how to draw. As impressed as I was with my results, I have to say that I do enjoy illustrating much more. That's when I learned to embrace my drawing styles and to illustrate about anything.

Therefore, as the holiday approaches I’d decided to take a break from blogging and take on the part-time task of illustrating. I have been designing illustrative greeting cards, prints and other custom illustrations. Feel free to show me some love and support by visiting my NEW Etsy shop, Following my illustrations on Instagram and Liking my NEW illustration Facebook Page :)

    1. I definitely agree with you Radhika. Designing interior spaces is not a job, it's an amazing career, and it's great to meet other designers that feel the same :)

  2. There are numerous components that go into designing any space, and it is easy to forget just a small piece because every contractor has different pockets of knowledge. MAJLIS DESIGN IN RIYADH

  3. Recently one of the Design Contest team members moved house and during that time, she spent hours sat analysing her furniture; the color schemes in place and the construction of the walls among many other nuances. And out of all of this stress, she noticed a world of similarities between what she does to make a living and what she does to make a home.
