Amanda Nisbet: Designer I admire

Hope everyone had a wonderful weekend!  I spent most of my weekend thinking about my dreams and what would really make me happy. I recently decided to go back into the workforce after leaving my job as an interior designer late December to try my hand at full time "blogging" and a few other things... I think It's doing well so far and I'm certainly not going to stop, but I miss being out there.  I truly miss working in the city and I miss all of the wonderful experiences that come with it.  I love interior design and I'm still not entirely sure about what direction it will take me, but I am open to new opportunities. One of my dreams would be to work with an incredibly talented, savvy, inspired and witty designer and she would make me her protege and....well, I'll leave that up to your imagination.  I'm sure we all have a passion that we dream big about!

I took the leap today...I big one. I sent out my resume to two very prestigious and respected designers.  One of which, was Amanda Nisbet.  I have long been an admirer of her work and I swear, every time I see a picture of her, I smile. I feel like she is an amazing woman. I don't know if I will get a response, but at least I tried. Hey, I once got a call back from a company I interviewed for,  three years later. I got the job too! 

I am proud of myself. I can't believe that the action of just sending my resume by email was making my heart beat faster. You probably know all about Amanda already, but if you're anything like me, I'm sure you just can't get enough of her design...Enjoy!

This picture is from the Oct. 2006 issue of House and Garden magazine and it was the first time I had ever heard of Amanda Nisbet.  I thought her ability to combine color and pattern was awsome. I actually ripped out this page and put it in my inspiration folder.

Amanda is sending you off with a smile!
