It starts with a sketch.
When I was first introduced to Che of Portfolio Interior Design & Decorating, she had just updated her blog, sharing photos of the custom furniture piece she had designed. Che and I were taking the same online course, Blogging Your Way, and shared a few email conversations about life as a designer and a new blogger. We bonded quickly over a shared interest of the creative process. I knew right away that in addition to the end result of her design, I wanted to feature Che’s creative process. So, just how did this all come about? Well, like many things in design, it starts with a sketch:
Disclaimer: I’m sure before it got to this point, there were many revisions and scraped ideas. Loads of frustrations. But, hey, we are only highlighting the positive side the creative process. The end result is totally worth it.

Excellent color choice, isn’t it? It’s the perfect shade of yellow. But want to know the coolest part? It’s available in any color under the sun. Just let Che know what you are looking for. She can be reached via email at firstname.lastname@example.org. And for the record, I love how the entire room is staged in the last two photos. Love the wall art. Love the purple squares. Love the driftwood. Love the bag. Love the shoes. Love everything. Thanks for sharing, Che! You done good!
