Ibiwunmi A earned her Diploma in Interior Design from KLC school of design, London. She has over 9 years experience working in the residential interior design space. She believes that incorporating technology into the design of interior and exterior spaces is going to become mainstream; and is becoming a key element to creating energy efficient and intuitive spaces that can not only enhance the lifestyle of the user, but also help improve the way that inclusive design is helping adults and children with disabilities interact with, and function optimally in the interior and urban landscape.
Describe your go-to style:
I have always been drawn to minimalist styles: simple, clean lines that allow design detailing and elements to take center stage. I love to play with texture and colour that have the potential to infuse character and elegance when done right. I also love the depth and character that creative and intuitive lighting brings to spaces. Light articulates space.
From where do you draw most of your inspiration?
Because of the client-centric nature of interior design, i always begin looking for inspiration from the process of unpacking the client brief. The process of creating design concepts, however, can be inspired by many things: the smell of the air just before rain, the sky as it explodes into all the gorgeous shades of red and orange, people watching, Pinterest and, because i am an incurable nerd, fantasy movies!
We know you love designing, but what about it do you love most?
The part i love the most about designing is seeing everything come together!
