I have been interested in home decorating ever since. I probably got this from my Mom and of course, at a very young age I was exposed to how my mother used to passionately decorate our home.
When I was single and I started living on my own I got a place in Makati. It was a decent size two bedroom apartment complete with a walk-in closet. I just loved that spiral staircase. I was really interested in dressing up my place to the point that for a while I stopped shopping for clothes and shoes, and instead frequented Ethan Allen. I had beautiful furniture pieces from that furniture store which are now stored in my parent’s home.
Now, I’m all the more into home decorating. I’m paying attention not only to colors and styles. My eyes are now also into fabrics, silhouette, consistency and general feel of a room. Now, I have become more ambitious, I have been eyeing on taking a course at the New York School of Interior Design.
I don’t know how NYSID got my name, but for the last year I have been constantly receiving mailers from them informing about courses being offered. Today, I just got Spring 08 Courses catalog. Shall I or shall I not give in to my calling?
