3) What prompted you to start your blog? Also, how did you choose the name of your blog? As all bloggers can say, I’m design obsessed and constantly have ideas/wish lists/projects going either in real life or in my head. Carter and I had just purchased our home and leading up to the purchase I was completely immersed in design blogs for inspiration. Once we actuallymoved in, I realized that a blog would be the perfect place to catalog ideas for myself as well as show off the house progress (we did lots of renovation) to friends and family. And since I’m a web designer, working in an online medium was completely comfortable and the natural place to put my thoughts. Actually starting the blog was an impulse one night while I watched TV, which also explains my very impulsive, nonsensical blog name. “Aesthetic Oiseau” just seemed to roll of the tongue that evening. Didn’t realize that most people don’t know how to pronounce or spell it – oh well!
Oh man, my worlds are CONSTANTLY intertwined. I am so incredibly lucky that literally from the moment I wake to the moment I go to sleep, my world is full of design! I can’t get enough so it works for me. I always see things in interior design that I like to incorporate into my graphics, or vice versa. My day job is a wee bit different because I work a lot in User Interface design, which is just a fancy way of saying functional web design, but I still translate everything I do into a visual experience both at home, with clients, and at work.
7) What inspires you? Fabric! In terms of interior design, that is always where I start. A fabric can get my mind racing with a million ideas – it’s a great feeling. I also get really inspired by shopping…seeing things in person, seeing their colors, seeing their scale…always whips up ideas in my head for blog posts, for rooms, for party themes. My favorite shops are vintage and consignment shops.
projects. I’m in bed by 10 or so ready to do it all again the next day 🙂
12) If you had an unlimited budget, what you go out a buy? Probably a dream home and have it renovated (b/c it would be old) from top to bottom exactly how I want it and I would hire all of the work out! I would use all of the Schumacher, Brunschwig and Quadrille fabrics and wallpaper I want! I would also hire a stylist and have a total wardrobe revamp because I’m really sick of my clothes these days.
Thank You Daniela for taking time
