Tell us your name, age, profession, location and anything else you’d like to share about yourself.
My name is Bianka, and I`ve recently turned 29. I am from Hungary. I worked as a full-time nanny, but now I am looking for a job.
Where do you get your interior design inspiration?
I spend most of my time browsing through pictures of interiors, architecture and design. I am constantly amazed by all the creativity that is out there. If I see something that I like and/or makes a big impression on me, I always imagine how I would use that certain piece or color, etc. Even landscapes can be a source of inspiration, or just the way the sun lights a room.
What are your favorite design trends?
Though most of my sets reflect a kind of modern style, I find beauty in pretty much any style. What’s most important to me is simplicity, quality and good taste. Nowadays, I am more interested in eclectic styles, but it can vary according to my mood or the season. And, of course, even if there are a lot of things that I like to look at, it doesn`t mean I would feel comfortable living with them.
What’s your creative process on Polyvore? How do you begin creating a set?
Hm … good question. Usually, I just pick an item and let myself be inspired. I make a lot of compromises, as it`s not always possible to find all the items that I would really use with the right angle and so on. There are also some rooms that I frequently use as a background. In that case, I just want to experiment with different kinds of impressions a change in the interior choices can make.
What are your personal aspirations/goals?
Since I was a child I have had a great interest in interior design and architecture. At the moment, the plan is to find a decent job so I can fund my interior [design] education.
How has Polyvore affected your life?
To be honest, I am struggling with social anxiety and self-confidence issues, so it really helped me express myself without having to prove anything. I started creating sets just for fun, but the fact that I get positive feedback on my sets makes me even more glad. I also thought of making a portfolio from some of my sets, in case I apply to an interior design school. What do you think?
What is your favorite Polyvore feature?
Do I have one? Seriously, the whole idea of Polyvore is just amazing.
