Meet member @blackpearls, a law student from Osijek, Croatia. Read on to find out about her creative process!
Tell us your name, age, profession, location and anything else you’d like to share about yourself.
Hello! My name is Ivana. I'm a 23-year-old law student and live in Osijek, Croatia.
Where do you get your interior design inspiration?
I find inspiration everywhere: magazines, interesting websites, sets of other Polyvore members. Sometimes, I get inspired by music. I know, it sounds weird, but music can get me in the right mood.
What’s your creative process on Polyvore? How do you begin creating a set?
There are days when I have a specific picture in my mind of how it should be done and, in the end, it looks like that. But there are times when I start with one type of design and it looks totally different after I finish that set.
Are there any interior design professionals you are a fan of?
It's hard to say. I'm just a beginner of interior design, so I haven't found my favourites yet.
What are your personal aspirations/goals?
Currently, the most important thing in my life is to finish law school and I hope it will be next year. But, besides getting my law degree, I would like to improve my artistic skills, like painting and designing. Eventually, I would like to succeed in that field, too.
How has Polyvore affected your life?
Polyvore has inspired me to be more creative and to experiment more in my everyday life. I’ve found that is OK to break some fashion rules as long as I feel confident. After some time, I started to experiment with interior design sets and it's fun to mix and match imaginary, expensive furniture and be happy to find similar but low-price items in real life.
