Live a life you are proud of.
If I think about it, really think, this simple statement epitomizes where I am right now. It is a summary of my beliefs and the litmus test for everything I do. Maybe it’s also yours. Perhaps my next discerning client appreciates a similar philosophy.
Welcome to bruyn designed; the culmination of my years in design.
What is design?
Design is everywhere. From the moment we wake, we are surrounded with designs. Someone designed our bed, our clock, our clothes, the roof over our head and the floor beneath our feet. Some designs were sprung forth, from the birth of necessity, then tweaked or “re-designed” for a better fit – in use, appearance, or marketability. Some items are discretionary and simply designed, then marketed. Nevertheless, everything we possess has had a designer touch it, one way or another. Sometimes it’s good and sometimes, well, not so good. Yet, there is something to be learned from every design, if we look close enough.
As a designer, I’ve spent nearly twenty years observing and collaborating with a variety of trades and professionals, so I could provide my clients with uniquely designed spaces to fit their lifestyle. Every project, both large and small, offers an opportunity to make my clients’ life easier, comfortable and moreover aesthetically pleasing.
Through this design diary, I hope to inspire my readers by sharing behind the scene peeks into the design world, along with my insight on industry forecasts, design and lifestyles, and how they play together. I look forward to hearing from all of you.
