Late last year, I found myself back in a classroom when I told myself six years ago after my MBA graduation that I’m so done with any kind of school! (Yes, it was that traumatic! Haha!)
I enrolled at SOFA’s Basic Interior Styling Class. I actually had so much fun and this class inspired me much more to get into interior styling.
We had different exercises on layout, color, scale and even for a piece that we hate!
We also had an exercise wherein we had a client (who was one of our classmates). That was kind of terrifying! But thank god, my first ever client was kind to this rookie.
My favorite activity was our “finals”. We had to do a table set up based on a book. I chose Eat Pray Love by Elizabeth Gilbert. And guess what? It was such a popular book in our class that there were three of us with the same book! Luckily, we chose different countries from the book.
I chose the Love part (aka Bali, Indonesia part) of the book. So here’s my table set up inspired by Eat Pray Love.
Fresh bougainvilleas and plants are a must for my table centerpiece.

I’m totally obsessed with bar carts! So I had to add this to my table set up.
I was actually sad that my class was done! I can’t wait to enroll in the Advanced Interior Styling class.
