When P turned 30, one of his good friends from college gifted us a boating brunch experience. I love these kinds of gifts where you are building memories with people instead of giving things. This past weekend we cashed in the brunch gift and set sail out of Perth Amboy, N.J. to take a little trip around Staten Island, and we got some really great views of the city. I didn’t take my camera so there are only weird selfies that were taken and won’t be shared, but it was a really nice way to spend the day.
It made me think though… there are all types of spaces to design in the world. I practice residential designs with a focus on kitchens and bathrooms, but there are also people who design commercial spaces such as offices, retail shops or restaurants. There are people who design movie theaters, and set designers for theatrical stages as well as for sitcoms and other movies and TV shows. And then there are boat designers, people who design boats from house boats, to yachts to cruise ships.
How much fun would it be to design a boat?! Maybe I should see if I can get any clientele back home in Seattle where there are a lot of house boats, and cross over to watercraft through residential interiors on house boats…or maybe I will just stick with what I know and continue working with houses on solid ground.
The world of design is so vast and incredible, I just love looking at and exploring all the wonderful outlets that interior design creeps into. It sets off the dreamer in me! What are you dreaming of in your career path?
