Changing your life plan, the one that you’ve been content to settle with, the one that you’ve been consciously steering yourself towards for years…well, changing that is scary. And stressful.
I just wanted to let you all know that I’ve officially begun the application process to an interior design school in Toronto, and am meeting with the director of admissions on Thursday to discuss which of the routes that the school offers would be the best for me.
In one years time, once I graduate with my Honours English degree from UoG, I could be attending the school of my dreams, going after the career of my dreams.
Scary? yes. Stressful? Of course. Worth it? Absolutely.
It’s never too late to examine your life, find what will make you truly happy and go after it.
Such a beautiful blog! Wishing you the best of luck in your endeavors to become an interior designer; from the looks of your personal design portfolio, I'm sure realizing your dream won't be too hard to do! :)
Thank you so much for your encouraging words! :) I hope you’re right. xoxo

I’m quite sure that many of you will agree with me when I state that Carrie Bradshaw has become a major fashion icon of this generation. As a fictional character on the hit show Sex and the City, Carrie epitomizes the type of woman many of us strive to be: Sexy, Confident, Successful, Honest, a True Friend, and of course Stylish.
While her infamous closet is stuffed full of wearable treasures (from pricey designer labels to vintage second-hand finds), her interior spaces have also become iconic and drool worthy and mustn’t go unnoticed.
Here is a look at some of my favourite of Carrie Bradshaw’s interior stylings…sets that provided the perfect atmosphere for the trendy, downtown New York dreamer as we as an audience experienced her life.
^ Carrie’s closet in her original apartment. Why not have a little fun in the walk-in closet? Carrie experiments with colour, rug choice, and funky lighting. Her colourful clothes compliment the space perfectly…or is it the other way around?
^ Carrie and Big’s closet. A much more grown up, organized closet than when Carrie lived as a bachelorette. I think the difference in cabinetry marking a masculine and feminine side is absolutely brilliant.
^ Carrie’s original bedroom. Such an eclectic, lived-in look. A personal favourite.
^ Carrie’s apartment after the make-over. I don’t personally love the neatness of this space, it just doesn’t seem to fit in with Carrie’s lifestyle. I guess it makes sense though given that she has moved in with Big and just uses her old apartment as an escape. Nonetheless, I can’t get enough of the focal point of this room: the headboard gallery wall. Eye catching!
^ Carrie and Big’s living room. A little masculinity for him in the sofa, a little femininity for her in the blossom rug. A perfect blend for the newly married couple. The artwork above the couch is stunning, simple, and adds the perfect pop of colour.
Although Carrie is definitely known more for her fashion than her apartment, I just can’t ignore design this good. (I do not own the rights to any of these photos, click pics for source).
