so...today is my first official day of blogging. i've never kept journals or blogged before so this is going to be a new and exciting experience. i'm an interior designer and have been working for a hotel owner/operator for the last year and a half. before working in the hospitality industry i designed model homes and also did residential design. recently i've really gotten into reading blogs, so i thought why not start one for myself so that i can share design tips and tid-bits and also so i can talk about this new journey that i'm embarking on. i'm toying with opening my own company again and expanding to the huntsville area. huntsville is where my mom lives, and it would be very easy for me to pick up clients there. it's only 3 hours and 15 minutes away from atlanta. huntsville hasn't been hit as hard as atlanta has by the recession and i really love the city. it reminds me a lot of johnson city, tn, which is where i went to college. i know this is probably not the best time to try to start a new company but i feel like i have so much to offer to clients. i had transitioned into hospitality design from residential design a little over a year and a half ago when i started working for lodgian. although i love hospitality design, i've really missed the limitless creativity that comes with residential design. here are some of the residentail projects i've worked on in the past.
