I’m Linda, and welcome to my long-time guilty pleasure: interior design and décor!
Why guilty? Because I’m a nerd at heart (a licensed chemical engineer to be specific). Yet, I would strongly contend that there are many parallels between engineering and interior design. Both are governed by sets of principles that are only useful when you learn to practically apply them (Bernoulli’s equation anyone?). Better yet, being able to visualize how to apply them is critical.
This is where DIY by Style has it covered – from discussing design principles and how I have personally applied them, to helping you visualize them in your own style. It may not surprise you that I LOVE researching a topic, letting things stew in my head, then taking all of the bits and pieces from different sources and fitting the common threads together.
This is exactly the method I took 10 years ago when we decided to build our dream home. As a working mom of two active boys (Rooster and B-Boy), it was a two to three year process to design and build the home that fit our needs and expressed our personality. From the basic floor plan, architectural details, materials selection, to furniture and dressings – I was a design sponge to feel confident making those decisions without a professional designer.
DIY by Style will share all of it with you for your own interior design projects so you can feel just as confident!
