The job description said it would be a plus for me to have a C license. In Sweden, a C license permits one to drive a truck. No, I don’t have a C license and, come to think of it, I haven’t even driven a car once in the entire 9 months I’ve lived here!
This is what week four of my job search for interior design positions in Stockholm looks like. Positions in the design field can be far and few between and when anything looks interesting, you go for it. I found this position to be a furniture installer/truck driver for an interior design company, and much to my dismay was brought back to reality when my fiancé pointed out to me that it was more or less a truck driving position that I was not exactly qualified for. However, anybody with a passion knows that it takes perseverance, an open mind (I mean, I can absolutely drive a truck if that means I’ll get a little closer to getting my foot through the door!), and some good ol’ fashioned luck to get the job done.
Anyways, I’ve wanted to start this blog for two years now and, finally, have the time to get started amidst my joblessness. :) My name is Lindsay and I am not a truck driver, but I do LOVE interior design. Here’s a few images to better describe myself.
If I were a work space, I’d look like this. Spacious and light with endless possibilities. If I want to draw, I can draw, if I want to do computer work, I can do that, too. I’d probably be a little bit more colorful and definitely a little bit more messy. ;)
If I were a dining space, I’d look like this. Bold and colorful, old and new, mixed and matched, and welcome for friends and family, always.
If I were a restaurant, I’d look like this. Candle-lit and intimate, rustic and cozy, with a glass of red wine and cheese platter on the table!
If I were a living room, I’d look like this. Casual, layered, warm, and very much lived in!
And if I were an apartment, I’d look like this. Old, inviting, filled with stories, and probably on some cobblestoned street in a place I’ve not yet been to.
I hope this gives you a little better of an idea of who I am and what I love. I happen to believe pictures say more than words, and that spaces, in particular, say more about us than we realize. Welcome to Learning to Love White, my happy place where I will share with you what inspires me, entertains me, and makes me excited to wake up in the morning. Thanks so much for joining me!
Here’s to completing my first blog post – cup of coffee in hand, jobless (hopefully not for too much longer), and chasing a dream in Stockholm. This is going to be fun!
