I’m currently on a career break from practising law, and right now my life is mostly about new ideas and their execution. This blog is one of the many ideas that have submersed me this year, which I feel obligated to bring to life.
So here I am literally starting from the bottom of the interior décor and design blogosphere, ready to read, learn, practise, fail, practise again — and sharing it all.
Fortunately, so many people have gone ahead of me to be successful in interior décor and design or in other industries using their respective skills, passions, gifts and flair. The truth is that every success story I have read about or encountered and everyone who has followed their dream are my inspiration. They are my personal cloud of witnesses ☺; everyone from family to friends, acquaintances and complete strangers miles away.
Still, I must tell you that starting this new path has reminded me of something I have always known: there is so much good out there in the world. In life generally and particularly on the internet, folks put out a lot of good and useful information. They even share their knowledge for free a lot of times. I was amazed to discover helpful resources for newcomers to grow and avoid some common mistakes. I even discovered free stock photos. On a related note, all pictures on this blog will either be stock photos illustrating the idea I’m trying to communicate or of my actual work/portfolio. Of course, I will always disclose in each case.
But, why interior décor and design, you ask? Well, for a long time, I’ve had a mind and pair of eyes that reflexively search out, admire and appreciate the interior decor, design and styling of a space. I often catch myself mentally rearranging, decorating or trying to make better use of spaces. I do this even while carrying on conversations with company. So, call it passion or a mere flair, I think that nurturing it will do some good in the world.
Did you know that interior design and décor improves the quality of life? In fact, some studies show that the aesthetics and organisation of our homes and offices can improve our moods. Well designed and decorated interiors can also reduce stress, encourage relationships and communication and increase productivity. Personally, I know that I study best in an organised room. During my school days, I would first spend time tidying my space before studying. I’d feel helpless when I had no control over the space and my pace would be much slower.
So, as I sign out on this first post, I hope that like me you’re starting something good or continuing the good you already do. The truth is that there is never a perfect time to do anything worthwhile these days. But we must soldier on to infuse good to the world around us in spite of the tough times (especially in Nigeria).
So I’m looking forward to working with you towards the delightful and organised home and office of your dreams. Are you currently decorating or remodelling any part of your home or office? Are you facing any challenges? Who knows, we could find a solution together.
