I was fortunate enough to know exactly what my passion was from the young age of 11 when I used to draw simple bedroom interiors in my free time. In my High School days, I was always one of the top students in both Engineering Graphics and Design, and Design by maintaining marks of high 80's and 90's, making it pretty obvious to go in the direction of Interior Design. I started job shadowing at different Architectural/Design firms in grade 11 with one of them being SAOTA / ARRCC, award-winning Architectural firms with a global footprint with projects on six continents.
After matriculating I dove straight into studying and dedicated three years to completing an Interior Design with Architecture diploma from Rhodec International, England, from which I graduated with Distinction. Thereafter I studied a basic Colour Psychology course, which I intend on studying further.
I graduated in June 2020, midst Covid-19 Lockdown, and realized this was a very unrealistic time to go job-hunting since everyone was either searching for jobs themselves or being retrenched from their current job. This then lead to the decision for me to take the big leap of starting my own business at the age of 21 years old in July 2020.
J-Pearl Interior Architecture is an Interior Design company which focuses on combining nature, geometrical lines and psychology - we want our designs to be felt, and not only seen. We love to incorporate as much nature as we can into our designs by the use of a design term known as "Biophilic design". We find balance between nature and modern style by following our main intention to bring back nature into our industrialized world.
