carla lane interiors

for the past few years i've been daydreaming about either going back to school for interior design or opening my own specialty food shop. they're very different projects but for me, both are about expressing a vision for a specific art form. these days i've been leaning towards the food shop but when i meet a designer like carla lane, i start to think that design might be a more exciting option. carla emailed me about some beautiful wicker chairs she rehabbed and included a link to her website. based in the san fernando valley of california, carla recently opened her own interior design studio after years spent writing her own lifestyle column for angeleno magazine. i always love hearing about people switching careers and carla is a wonderful example of being able to transfer good taste from one field to another. her style is a mix of east-coast cool and california comfort with a dash of bold vintage furniture. i've included a few of my favorite photos above and below but you can see more of her work right here. enjoy! [thanks, carla!]

oh yes, I love hearing inspiring stories like ppl switching careers, too. It somehow encourages you to take that "leap of faith". And Carla has done it well. Love her style!

I went back to school to get a second bachelors in interior design after getting my first in pyschology. Sometimes you just have to itch that design bug. I did it all in 2 short (very exciting) years. Now at 26 I'm living my dream. I say go for it Grace! Your taste is exquisite and the rest you can learn.

I love inspiring stories like Carla as well. I wish i could find my niche too and do full time what i really love .. there are so many creative areas that i enjoy that its difficult to decide.. at the moment i just focus on my blog hoping it will help me decide which route to take.
