An interior designer/decorator! Yeah, I was pretty surprised at this realization myself. I’ve already had one successful career in the IT consulting industry and working on my second with my writing. When I renovated my ENTIRE house a few years ago, it was a major undertaking.
That's my living room, BTW, with all the boxes along the right wall the new kitchen cabinets. Shudder, right? It's totally gutted back
to the bare bones!
was excited, apprehensive, and okay a tiny bit terrified. Or perhaps it was a
LOT. I designed every aspect of the renovation which ranged from some
structural changes to a lot of cosmetic things. I updated/upgraded EVERY SINGLE
room in the house. Actually the outside underwent some pretty substantial
changes as well. I selected every fixture, fitting, color and finish. I
designed every tile layout. I picked the design for each molding and trim we
used. I even designed the layout of the kitchen myself from a completely blank
slate. I worked with the guys every day on each step of the process and you
know what I found? I absolutely LOVED everything about it. I learned I love
looking at furnishings catalogs, tile books, paint chips, architectural
accents. I loved everything about the process, especially the sense of immense
satisfaction I get when I can sit back in any room of my house and think… I did
that. So, if I wasn’t a writer I’d definitely be in the design/decorating/home
about YOU? What do you think you’d be doing if you could absolutely choose anything you'd like to do, anything at all?
