Someone once told me that the things you were doing when you were a child of 4,5 and 6, would later become the authentic passions in your life. This idea holds very true for me . My father built me a dollhouse with a detachable roof which provided a birds eye approach rather than the usual frontal approach that you see on most conventional dollhouses. My father’s unintended idiosyncratic element provided me the exposure to the idea of looking at spaces through a floor plan from my beginnings. I also had access and was encouraged to work with the raw materials around me. I built my own furniture for this dollhouse. I nailed together a piece of hand railing and a small piece of paneling on one side to create a banquette sofa which I then upholstered in black faux fur of all things! I made little wooden club chairs with upholstered cushions, coffee table and side tables. I spent more time decorating this dollhouse than I did playing with the dolls. So you can see that MY INTERIOR LIFE is natural to me and something that I’ve been doing most of my life in one way or another.
Today I am inspired by my other natural passions which I’ve cultivated over time such as Art, Architecture and Culture. The shape of an arch in an ancient city, the color of a rough stone set in a hand crafted piece of jewelry, or the pattern in a piece of fabric may also provide me unexpected inspiration. Life and history recycle themselves, our world provides us with an extensive repertoire of options and our imaginations give us infinite possibilities to consider. Making the decisions is the fun part!
