“Most people’s problem [with design] is that they always try to second guess – what do others think, is this right, will I like it, and is it conventionally correct? The chances that your gut is wrong is really small. It’s when you analyze and question that all the insecurities step in. When your vision is from the gut it’s your core talking and the core knows the right thing for you.”
This article is inspired by renowned designer Vicente Wolf and his amazing words. We can all learn from them. This is what I learnt from this designer genius:
Trust your gut:
The hardest thing a beginner designer finds is to follow their gut. I mean I am really scared how it would turn out. How the room will turn out. The longer I take to take the action the more complicated it gets and soon i am questioning the entire theme, the color scheme, whether I want to live with it or not.
Be a sponge:
That is one thing we designers in the creative field love to do and it is acutely the reason why we are here everyday to see what else is waiting for us to inspire and move and relish.
The trick is the same soaking it up, but apply it in detail. Soak up everything in the blog field your favourite bloggers, the history, the classics, the antiques, soak up the night markets or the antique shops, the culture, or simply the world that surrounds you like even at your grocery store! Inspiration could be laying anywhere.
Never let your creative juices run dry. Just soak up everything! After all interiors are about 90% of input and 10% of productive output. Correct me if I am wrong.
What is the hardest thing beginner’s find in your opinion?
