“Limitations Stimulate Creativity” via @jamesclear Hello I am Giselle. For those that don’t know me, I have been designing homes for my clients since 2002, when I began working from the spare room of a rented cottage, two years after my daughter Frederique was born.
My work began as small one off commissions, and has grown to large off plan projects.
I work on listed buildings or contemporary havens, and internal architectural design is my passion. I am constantly looking for opportunities to ensure internal spaces can be as creative as possible for my clients.
Knowing this required a step up for me to utilise my time productively, I have finally laid down my scale ruler and drawing board, replacing it with the drawing platform known as Vectorworks. It was never going to be easy, but YouTube and many hours later, the penny is finally dropping, and I am quite enjoying the challenge of learning a new skill.
I am about to say goodbye to my fourth solo renovation project since 2012... yep, never a dull moment here, and it’s a good job I love what I do, living amidst chaos and dust has been a challenge to say the least.
At weekends I can generally be found up a ladder cutting hedges or, as head of general maintenance duties at home, stuck inside my tool box. But I absolutely love nothing more than to be locked in my beautiful kitchen, and lockdown has given me the opportunity to create, learn and push boundaries, allowing me to try stuff in the kitchen I never thought possible!
One could say I am lucky, as Fred and I have little immediate family meaning I have the time and opportunity to embrace, learn and be eternally busy and grateful for so much.
