I decided to start DevleByAshlea as a creative outlet for myself and to share my passion for Interior Design and Decorating with anyone who may share the same interest or is looking for ideas. I plan to have a new post up at least once a week with idea’s for your home or DIY tutorials.
I studied with the Interior Design Institute and completed the Diploma in Interior Design. They provide a great program that gives an insight into interior design and provides technical and practical skills. There are 12 modules and 12 assignments that must be completed and optional Advanced Modules on specific topics. Tutors are always available to lend a hand and guide you through the assignments as well as present and past students that are always ready to give advice. Check out their website for more information, you never know where it could lead you!
Earlier in life I was always the kid putting art and posters on her walls, trying to make things out of nothing and constantly rearranging the furniture. I was always covering things with stickers and collecting shells for who knows what project! As I grew up this creative flair turned into taking Art and Fabric classes at school and eventually on to completing the Diploma in Interior Design.
I love adding little bits and pieces to my own home whether it is ornaments or plants or printing photo’s to display. I currently rent my home so am not able to make any major changes in terms of wall colours, etc. but are given free reign in hanging things on the walls as long as it doesn’t leave too much of a mark! And of course there are so many products out there now that don’t require a hole to be made in the wall at all so that adding your own personal touch to a rental home has become a lot easier.
