Q. What was your background before KLC?
A: Before joining KLC I was on my gap year after leaving school. During this year I worked a few jobs, whilst deciding what to do, as I had a place at university to study something completely different, but I knew this was not what I wanted to do.
Q. Why did you decide to study Interior Design?
A: I choose to study Interior Design as I always had an interest in it from my parents, I also really liked the idea of one day doing property development, so doing an Interior Design course seemed like a good fit for the future.
Q. Tell us about your experience of the course?
A: My experience of the course was different from what I was expecting, there were a lot more architectural things to think about during the projects throughout the two years. Also having a small group really helped to get the best possible learning.
Q. What are your design interests/strengths?
A: My design interests are probably more towards interior decorating rather than Interior Design, this is because I like the idea of making a space beautiful through the use of materials and colours.
Q. What space inspires you?
A: A space that inspires me is Petra in Jordan, it is such a beautiful space and designed and built so amazingly to have lasted all these years. I was lucky enough to visit and even though I was quite young at the time I just knew what an amazing place it was.
Q. Who is your favourite designer?
A: My favourite designer is Kit Kemp, as I really like the way she isn’t afraid to use lots of colours and patterns within her spaces. I think the spaces she designs are really beautifully done.
Q. Where to from here?
A: After finishing at KLC I hope to get a job in Interior styling, then hopefully in the near future start my own business in property development.
STUDY TIP - The biggest piece of advice I can give someone who is about to either start studying or working within Interior Design is to make sure whatever you’re doing are doing you enjoy it as much as you can. If you are not enjoying the project you are on then they feel as though they are taking ages, and in the long run you will do a better job with the project. I think the biggest way to enjoy the project is to have an idea you are passionate about. Polly Dunn
