I was thinking, what would be helpful on a blog on an interior designer’s page… politics? I don’t think so! Many people wonder where to start when it comes to interior design so, I will aim to have my blog be an insight into how we designers think and work everyday.
– How a designer thinks
– How does the hiring process of an interior designer look like

– Where a designer begins
It is my hope that some of the people intrigued in my design business can thus learn how to insight-fully turn around the way they look at their spaces and how to tackle the challenge of making that space reflect their true personality!
I recently rented a beautiful floor-to-ceiling-windowed condominium in Washington D.C.! Being on a very tight budget (considering it will probably be my first home in DC and only last a year or so), I want to decorate in a way that brings me joy to wake up to everyday, At the same time I want to be very very budget conscious!

I have had many hard years in loud messy New York and I really want D.C. to feel like a vacation retreat for my family. I want the unit filled with plants and a bohemian lounge-style!
This picture below caught my eye instantly on my nightly ritual of scrolling through Pinterest.
It isn’t exactly my typical personal modern/punk taste level so, I’m only going to use it as an inspiration picture but not an exact model of how I wish to have the unit look.
Stay tuned to find out how Lily decorates the Washington D.C condo and uses this picture as the start of her design project!!!
