“The essence of interior design will always be about people and how they live. It is about the realities of what makes for an attractive, civilized, meaningful environment, not about fashion or what’s in or what’s out. This is not an easy job.”
In our #WisdomWednesday blog focusing on the #WonderWomen segment we present a woman who feels similarly passionate about interior designing. Meet, Trishlaa Challani, an independent interior designer and the founder of an interior designing firm Bold Interior Stories. Besides successfully completing many prestigious designing assignments under her helm and conducting various workshops, Trishlaa has also bagged several awards in the field of designing and architecture. How did she get into designing and what has her entrepreneurial journey been like so far? Let’s find out in her own words.
“I’m an Interior Designer cum Stylist. During school and almost all the while when I was still pursuing my schooling, I was never sure what I wanted to choose for my further studies or as my profession. After HSC, I spent the initial month in loggerheads thinking about what to do next in my life. And during time too, doing interior designing was never on my mind.
I don’t know what came over me though, and I ended up pursuing B.Sc and M.Sc in Interior Architecture and Design. I would have to admit, that despite being an impulsive one, it turned out to be one of the best decisions I have made in my life so far.
Before Bold Interior Stories, I was initially into a partnership firm but due to some reasons we split up after a while. Post this split, the biggest struggle was setting up everything from almost scratch.The turning point on the professional front was expanding and establishing myself through workshops. The kind of reach and the projects I have got through these has been truly amazing. Even during this quarantine, I am blessed and grateful to never have been out of work.
In fact, in this lockdown period we have trained nearly 120+ professionals in the field of home decor, styling, interiors and architecture. My biggest motivation are my awards. They motivate me to not stop working and to do more so that I can continue my upward growth journey. My milestones are the 2 awards that I received last year and I cherish them a lot.
The future plan is to do amazing projects globally and also establish our workshops in a different format so that we can help people grow a bit more. We are also going to launch another sector where we are going to support the budding entrepreneurs and free-lancers.
I really love reading and I am not a tech savvy person as I like the feel of books.
“Books have been one of my best sources of learning and it is through my reading habit that I have learnt to be patient and resilient.”
I aim to help all the entrepreneurs, whether established or just starting out, to grow and help them understand and establish the work in a very professional way.
