A Knack for Designing……..
Here I wish to share some tips for the young designers in the field; some essentials which youth must follow while they are opting for the most creative profession which provides a shelter of luxury and comfort to clients.
- A Young Start
I had a house for my toys when I was a kid. I decorated it, made furniture for it and even put wallpaper up. So, I sort of started interior design at quite a young age for my small, inanimate clients !
Likewise , a few kids start helping the family with ideas to renovate homes at a younger stage which shows that the child has a knack to explore and implant the ideas of his own. This is how the initial spark grows in young minds.
- Belief in one’s heart
I always loved designing things. With anything in life that you want to do, if it interests you and you spend enough time doing it, you will learn it. You just have to care enough a to try it out.
There are many students who cannot add extra credits to their academics but that’s not the end; if one can design well while other could explain well , choose and excel in the trait you are best at and for others just keep your head high and believe in yourself !
- MATH MATTERS !!!
It’s a competitive world today , so I encourage people to stay in education for as long as they can to attain all the possible knowledge and as we know knowledge is an ongoing process for your life.
Getting some sort of grounding in architectural interior design is a very good thing to do. You need to learn to do things like scale drawings, technical conversions and thus math is very important too. It’s not all choosing lovely curtains and fabrics!
- an experience at internship
It is so important to learn a skill, to work with a team and to build a sensibilty , an experience at internship could give you an experience of the industry that you want to be in and allow you to find out if it is the right one for you. It means that you start from the bottom and you get access to amazing talent in the real world. It’s important to learn through experience rather than being drowned in books only.
- PLAY WITH YOUR DESIGNS
The functionality and the atmosphere are the most important things to get right. The fabric selection, the floor coverings, the furniture placement , the lighting pattern are the tools that you use to create that. Don’t make rushed decisions if you can help it; apply a process of design -study and analyse of your own , the better it would be.
For reference, how a room is going to make you feel is essential. That is what good interior design does. It’s about creating an atmosphere. You absolutely have to know something about the people you are designing a space for.
- be brave to take upon the opportunity
One must take the opportunity to prove the worth and talent in him irrespective of your age; never hesitate to take responsibilities . It could be your relative who wishes to get some ideas for his/her living room or it could be your own study which could be given a new theme. We have to trust ourselves otherwise we would all be living in a very grey world, wouldn’t we!
