Interior designers get their inspirations from many sources. Taking all of those inspirations and applying them to a space, while adding touches of each client’s personality is what makes my job so challenging and fun!

And I focus on majör materials. After I got all I need, I start to make lighting test and when I’m satisfied with lighting, I pass to rendering process.
