I’m inspired by many things. Day to day, by people – what they wear, how they look. Strong people really inspire me. Seeing what drives others and the lives they live is what inspires me most.
I love travelling and I love to see the colour contrasts around the world. Small details, such as a cup or a dish in a restaurant can inspire me.
I often think homes with a personality are inspiring – homes that have something that not everyone has. Preferably something vintage or something new. Colours and colour compositions are also really exciting to work with.
I work as an interior design and find it challenging as I constantly have to think up new ideas, and no two homes are the same. In many ways I have to feel inspired in every project I do – otherwise my body would give up. I wouldn’t finish the job.
Often when I’m painting I need to listen to music, be alone, travel, dream and let the inspiration come. I can’t force inspiration – it just has to come on its own.
It’s as if the body, head and heart are set to think in terms of interior design whenever I enter new premises, a new room, house etc. I can’t leave a café without having an opinion on what I would have done differently or having fallen in love with what I saw.
It’s fun and exciting – as long as you enter with your eyes open – when looking for it I usually always find the inspiration I need.
I think all people can do this if they want to – so next time try and let the inspiration come to you!
