Back in the day, people seemed to love anyone creative that was self taught. Whenever I watch a documentary or hear a story of someone from the past, usually self taught finds its way in the story telling. Its no secret around here that I love interior design, and I have for many many years now. But unfortunately my past was not one structured with a formal education in design. Does that make my talent, or those like me less worthy of all that comes with the title of INTERIOR DESIGNER? Clearly not based on the names listed below of these successful interior designers. I have shared with you guys some of the disappointments I have experienced, but what people forget is there is a starting place for everyone. And you never know what the future holds for anyone. So if there is something that you love to do, your good at it, and you are not formally trained in it. Don’t let that stop you. Fight for yourself, and for what you believe to be your gift from God. Everyone has at least one, but possibly many more. I have a daughter and a son to show & teach that anything is possible when you try. They are watching me.
“WHEN ONE DOOR CLOSES, AND YOU LOOK DOWN. THERE WILL BE A KEY RING FULL OF KEYS TO UNLOCK EVERY CLOSED DOOR IN FRONT OF YOU”
The talent of Nate Berkus, Cortney & Robert Novogratz, Brian Patrick Flynn, and Vicente Wolf shows that it is possible. I am sure their roads and journeys were not lined in gold and sparkling Swarovski crystals. But their success, and living their passion surely is I’m sure.
High Fives & Hugs,
