Tabitha’s office board won because of all the eye-catching color, it’s very inspirational. The gold decals on the wall give it enough contrast while maintaining an opulent feel. The bookshelves are very whimsical because it’s not a traditional shelf, they look like picture frames that are recessed into the wall. I also like that she added the extra touch of the calendar with the materials pinned on it, very cute.
Q. Tell me about your education, experience and background.
I am a mother, raising my daughter, and I love to design. I am not a professional but hope to one day own a business. I am just taking things day by day, and hope that my designs spark some interest.
Q. When did you realize you wanted to be an Interior Designer?
Ever since the first Sims game came out, I have always loved to build and decorate my homes. I also used to design furniture. I would come up with ideas for furniture that I hoped to one day produce. Then I decided to go to school for English as a writer, and write stories, but that didn’t live long. I just wanted to design so bad one day that I just knew it was the right path for me. So I found Olioboard and that was only the beginning.
Q. How would you describe your personal interior design style?
I am big on vintage and mid-century styles. I love to go to antique and vintage stores. I also like to find new trends as well, so you could consider me eclectic.
Q. Where do you get your inspirations from?
If you notice a lot of my designs I have a nature theme. So nature and birds are a big inspiration for me. As well as the vintage styles, fashion and old celebrities. Depends on my mood. But mostly nature. I love to watch documentaries on birds and animals.
Q. What are your goals as an Interior Designer?
I would love to decorate for famous people. I want to be one of those Million Dollar Designers.
Q. Who is your favorite Interior Designer?
I don’t really have a favorite. There is just too much beauty out there to appreciate. I have seen some of the most awesome places. I am a big fan of Martha Stewart too. That woman is crafty!
