The Desks of Interior Designers

This time we went around the interior design studios to ask about their workspace. Read below to check out what we found.

Andrea Bonilla, Masters

DESCRIBE YOUR WORKFLOW

I do a lot of research first, and I try to do as many diagrams as possible to figure out what I want to do next. It’s a little bit of a back and forth with doing research and working by hand.

WHAT IS THE WEIRDEST THING YOU HAVE?

I’ve got a painting my grandma gave me, kinda just hanging out there. I don’t know if that’s weird, but I like having it there. I also have a picture with my graduating class.

Jessie Bean, 3rd Year

What is one thing on your desk that you love?

My water bottle. I love my water bottle. I always need my water bottle.

What is the weirdest thing you have on your desk?

Definitely this felt bunny. Last year, we had a teacher who really loves felt and Joe decided to make me a felt bunny when we were bored and stressed.

Marie Perriello, 4th Year

WHY DO YOU ORGANIZE YOUR WORKSPACE THE WAY IT'S ORGANIZED NOW?

I just dump stuff everywhere.

WHAT ARE THE THREE MUST-HAVE ITEMS FOR YOUR WORKSPACE?

Pens, architecture’s scale, and coffee mug.

 

 

 

Savannah Henley, 1st Year

Describe your workflow.

Organized chaos.

What is the weirdest thing you have?

The weirdest thing I have on my desk would be my clay model, which is a lump of clay we threw around the drillfield with paint on our hands.
