Q. What was your background before KLC?
A: Before KLC I graduated from the University of Liverpool, gaining a First-Class Honours in Geography. Originally, the plan was to become a property developer, but I quickly realised it was interiors that I was really passionate about. After hearing about KLC from a friend, I just knew it was the next step for me.
Q. Why did you decide to study Interior Design?
A: I have always loved interiors, but never saw it as something that could be my career until I took a trip to Stockholm in my second year of university. If you have been, you’ll know it is the ultimate hub for interior design, and after the four short days I spent there I just knew it was all I wanted to do in life! (Also, if you haven’t been, go!!)
Q. Tell us about your experience of the course?
A: Enrolling in KLC was the best and scariest decision I have ever made, but ultimately it has shaped the designer that I am today, taken me out of my comfort zone, and opened so many doors for the future.
Q. What are your design interests/strengths?
A: I absolutely love the visual stage, whether it’s sketching or using a software, it just puts all the visions that I have in my head into reality, and from there, whether FF&E has been chosen or not yet, is where the design starts to really develop.
Q. What space inspires?
A: I love the kitchen, especially what the kitchen is becoming nowadays, which is a space that the family spends most time in. The fact that kitchens are being designed as living spaces rather than just kitchens, with such innovative and interesting materials, is really exciting.
Q. Who is your favourite designer?
A: This is such a tough question, but I would have to say both Rose Uniacke and Amber Lewis. They combine rustic/antique/vintage/organic with modern/industrial/clean so well and every room they create is so beautiful.
Q. Where to from here?
A: From here, I would love to work for a designer to develop the skills I have learned from KLC even further.
STUDY TIP - Enjoy every second! At times it can be really tough, and it is a heavy workload, but it’s one of the only times where you have so much freedom with the designs (and no budget!!). Also, don’t be afraid to design something that is not your taste, you might find it turns out to be your best work. Harriet Ball
