    I've noticed that artists make really good interior design without any formal training. What are your thoughts ?

    Isn't it obvious? They deal with colors, contrast, dimensions, shapes, lighting, texture, volume, etc. all the time. They know how to manipulate everything so that it's pleasing to the eye.

    plus they CARE about astetics

    honestly i think not caring is the reason a lot of people have such ungly houses and apartments, they just dont care to make it a priority in their lives

    True artists live like slobs and are eccentric as hell.

    I've never been in an artists home that wasn't chaotic.

    There are different types of artists like there are people I guess. I'm an artist myself and half the time I can't keep my place clean cuz I go home and write. I don't go home, clean up, and write, I go home, write, sleep, then clean up once a week.

    I have a friend who switched from writing to interior design and I"ve always wondered why. I also saw a few people from Design Star, a show in HGTV, who made a shift to Interior Design from other walks of life. It's a pretty interesting reality show about competing designers. Just thought I'd share this with you cuz I work with them.

    Speaking of Design Star, the premiere is tonite, 10pm on HGTV! Eleven utterly cool, utterly diverse designers compete to get their own show on HGTV.

    I get kicks and tips all at once with this awesome reality show.

    Design Star, HGTV, 10pm tonite. Don't miss it!

    Did anyone of you catch the show on sunday ? Most of the designers had very little or no training at all, but were still pretty good esp the guy from NC. What did you guys think ?
