14 Jun Desiree Burns Interiors Website Launch!
I’m so excited to be launching this blog along with some amazing interior design services and packages that are accessible to so many people. Design is something that I believe inspires everyday life no matter what industry you’re in. Beautiful, carefully thought out spaces can help shape your mood, mind, and routine. I want to kick this off by first sharing a little bit about myself and how Desiree Burns Interiors came into fruition.
I’ve always had a love for the creative so I thought fashion would be the road to lead me to my career. I started my journey into the design world working for fashion houses and PR agencies. After multiple jobs in fashion and not being fulfilled, I realized I needed to explore more options. I had to take a step back and think about what it was I truly enjoyed doing. I had just had an amazing experience decorating my home in Los Angeles but didn’t really think much of it at the time other than just a fun side project.
After making the decision to uproot my life from LA back to Boston, I found myself in a new apartment, with the commonly dreaded task of having to furnish it. That was my ah-ha moment! I actually got excited and inspired by the thought of needing to create a living space that I would love coming home to everyday from a blank canvas. In the midst of taking on designer duties at home, I was job searching. I came across an ad for an assistant position at a local architect firm working for the Principal of Interior Architecture. Although I was hesitant to start my new “career path” as an assistant, I thought “this would be the perfect opportunity for me to explore the industry”. I was offered the position about a week later and accepted. Getting to see the ins and outs of interior design helped me to discover my true passion for decorating. I absorbed every bit of information I possibly could.
Fast forward about a year later and I was itching to start designing. I found a job listing online looking for e-designers. I was not familiar with the term so I did a little research and discovered that interior design was advancing to a more affordable, efficient, and technology friendly medium. E-design is the process of interior design services all done virtually. I built my portfolio, sent it out and got hired from two awesome companies as an interior designer! This was the most exciting career moment I think I had ever had. I knew this is where I wanted to be.
Fast forward again and I would be working on launching my very own company. I am so excited to have the opportunity to do what I love. This is by no means meant to be an inspirational piece but if you take anything away from reading this post, follow your heart and it will never mislead you.
I want to continue to share my journey, knowledge, and experiences on this blog. Since design is so personal to me, so will my posts be. I only plan on sharing things that I am truly inspired by, believe in, and experience. I hope to share some valuable design tips, inspiring images, and of course a little bit of personal experiences that inspire me whether it’s a beautiful destination I found while traveling, great article I’ve read, or insight on new projects I take on. I hope you will continue to share the journey with me!
