I love news hobbies, it keeps you busy and your mind is out; because, I’m that type person that overthinks everything.. (Trust meeeeeeeee) but, lately I have noticed that I reduced the thinking. (Don’t be fooled, it pops back up once in a while, mostly when I’m doubting on something or not really sure) that’s why I am active, I have thrown myself into something exciting and that keeps me happy. Nowadays, for some reason I suddenly discovered a passion for Interior design.
As I was growing up, you know you have that one person you look up too. I was always in my cousin’s robe. People always thought that I was her daughter.. She was everything you ever dreamed of becoming: model, photographer, traveller,spoke many languages fluently, diplomat’s wife and I was just so in awe of her and still is. She lived in Belgium for many years and there was one thing she absolutely adorns till today. Go on a Antique Hunt, and find vintage things, goodness trust me when I tell you that we would walk up and down for finds and rare pieces. She is into “Louis the XIX style” French sophistication. She kinda fell into it, didn’t really go to school for it but she just got the eyes for nice things and had her ways with vendors. Her home back in Cameroon the testimony of it; thus If I start the description of the entire house, I will be a long post.
Every summer, I do spend few days at her place and I’m still in admiration of the job she did and still does to improve her place. Then, in my dreaming mind, I started dreaming about what my own place will look like. Definitely more into the modern and contemporary art design, open space concept.
I really start picturing how I want my house to look from top to bottom. So, I decided that I will get back to my scrap days and just start to put looks together.
On my free days, I run around town, to antiques or interior design stores, in quest for inspiration. I always at peace, maybe because of the feels you get from the furniture (Lool, no I don’t speak to things yet, but I think I might have that power if I keep on looking), but also the infamous pinterest (very good and lovely tool); however you can get lost in it, they just have so many things to choose from and it can be very overwhelming.
That is why I’m trying to narrow down my vision so I’m not all over the place. This past weekend, I found this little town “Kensington, MD” that has a row of just antiques and interior design shops; indeed, heaven on earth. I was just a kid in from of a Christmas tree, that feeling of excitement you get when you know you are getting presents. Pricey but so much Love And fleekiness..
I will be to Hire very soon.. So keep an eye out for my designs…
