Wanderlust Entrepreneur

Welcome to the start of a new chapter for me – as I explore life in the entrepreneurial lane. This is such an exciting time as I dive into my true passions, becoming an interior designer and owning my own business.


[who]

Dedon Interiors. The name dedon was a nickname given to me by my little sister when I was younger, because she couldn’t say “Deon” properly and it has stuck with me ever since. I wanted to name my business something that was personal and special to me and therefore, dedon interiors came to life.

[what]
My style of design is not formal, but rather an extension of my personality. I am a big people person and want to get to know the person behind the designs I am doing to create their new haven. I studied a bit of environmental psychology ,which is the study of how people relate to spaces, along the way and utilize that into every project that I complete. I would call myself a transitional designer – I love to mix modern styles with a hint of classic pieces in every space.

[where]
Currently, I am living in Australia until March of 2017, so most of my designing will be virtual until I return to the United States, in Tampa, Florida where I will be located. So you are in luck if you are living in the Sydney, Australia area 🙂
Don’t worry though, with virtual interior design, I can help you anywhere you are located in the world.

[when]
Dedon Interiors became official on September 1st, 2016 and I could not be happier.
Interior Design was always something I saw myself involved in. I have a very creative side so as a child, I was constantly rearranging something in the house. I used to make “model homes” out of diaper boxes, using packing tape as windows and bendy straws as plumbing.

All of this creativity developed over time and became a part of my everyday life & after receiving my degree in Interior Design I started to develop my personal design philosophy. Essentially, interior design is more than just using creativity to make things aesthetically pleasing. Rather, interior design has a purpose; to effectively communicate thoughts and ideas into functional spaces.

[why]
I attended The Art Institute of Tampa and received my Bachelor’s of Fine Arts in Interior Design in 2011 & that began my career as a designer. Over the last five years, I realized how much design was an integral part of my life and how much I was passionate about it. Through various jobs, I saw my sketches turned into real life construction and my ideas sparked to life.

Shout out to all of my bosses; those people who I asked for a ton of advice along the way! Without you, I wouldn’t be where I am today – 25 years of age, pursuing my passions with a business to call my own. I appreciate you more than you know!

[design details]
I started dedoninteriors because I know there are many people out there who are looking for interior design advice, ideas and suggestions to make their space less of a house or apartment and more of a home but maybe don’t know where to start. Dedon Interiors is all about YOU! So ask all the questions, seriously! I am here to help answer them and help you create your haven.
