Now that Will and I are officially in the midst of college life, it has me thinking about going back to school myself and obtaining a proper degree in interior design. I took an intro to interior design class my last semester of college and instantly fell in love. I was certain that if I called my parents and told them I wanted to change my major and sign up for another three years of undergrad that I would have been shipped off to a rehabilitation camp. I've dabbled with the idea of going back to school for a few years but always end up getting caught up with the everyday grind of work and life.
I've enrolled in an online course through Parson's School of Design in Basic Interior Space Planning to hone my rendering and scale drawing skills and I'm really enjoying the course so far! Thankfully my parents' engineering blood makes me a whiz with an architect scale. Unfortunately, that same engineering blood makes me painfully perfectionistic and it takes me forever to complete my homework.
While my path may not be to go back to school right now to become a "proper" Interior Designer, I think I'm in pretty good company. I recently came across an article from Domaine listing some very impressive interior Gods and Goddesses who don't have any formal training. And hot dang, if they can do it, so can I!
