I received the loveliest email this evening from interior design graduate Louise Reeves and it has made my weekend. Earlier this year, she asked for my help in breaking into the industry and, after seeing some photos of her impressive work, I was happy to give it a shot. I wrote this post, which was read by Lisa Wright, interior designer and owner of Peponi Home, who promptly gave her a job. Don’t you just love that?
Louise says: “Jen, thank you so much for profiling me on your site, otherwise I wouldn’t be in this fabulous job.” Aw! Sounds like Louise is off to a great start assisting Lisa. “I’m one of very few people who graduated from Enmore last year to be working in the industry. It’s obviously a tricky time and there aren’t too many job offers so a lot of my friends from TAFE have gone back to do more study. I feel so lucky to have gotten a job, especially one as fantastic as this and I have learnt so much about the industry and about design in such a short space of time. Lisa is a great mentor, she’s in a position I would definitely love to be in later in my career.”
Congratulations Louise and well done Lisa for giving this bright spark her first step on the interiors industry career ladder! I love how small the interiors world can be, especially online, and it’s great to be able to bring like minded people together through my blog. I am going to bed happy to round off this week! Jen x
