My Interior Design Dream Come True!

I've always had a love for interior design - that's why I started this blog! It's been a dream of mine to become a real-life interior designer for a while now, but the stars just hadn't aligned for me...

Well thanks to my little itty bitty blog, my big huge dream has come true! I am so excited to announce that I have my very first interior design client!

I've got a lot of work ahead of me - I spent 2 hours today just measuring. I felt like such a professional though, snapping that measuring tape back up to my hip (be careful doing that, my fingers paid the price a few times).

So once I got all that behind me, I got to work figuring out floor plans. My mom showed me this really cool site Urban Barn where you can make floor plans online for free. I might need to poke around a little more to find a more sophisticated site (any suggestions?!) but for now it works just fine.

Check out my first run-through:

I didn't make any labels or add colors - the little tiny thing in the bottom left corner is an easel and the little boxy things on the right are stairs... but pretty fun nonetheless!

I'm excited to get better at my craft - who knew there was an art to measuring or how much fun it would be to move little black and white furniture around a screen!

More details to come on the house and what projects I'll be working on - I'm so so excited!!!
