We love hearing our student’s stories – their life and journey before studying with us and some of their successes after graduating. This month we spoke with Amrita Khanna, founder of interior design company Zip Code 888 and graduate of the Certificate in Interior Design Level 1 (Residential) course. The talented interior designer and mother of 3 shares her story with us.
Concept board for Tai Tam apartment
Living room furniture board for Tai Tam apartment
I have finished styling and decorating an apartment which got featured in the SCMP and Todays living Magazine last year. After this I completed a styling/ upgrade of a living room and balcony. These are both featured on my website zipcode888.com. And I am now starting work on other projects.
To stay current I subscribe to Design Anthology and Home Journal Magazines, follow a lot of my favorite designers on Instagram, and our art history course at Insight School got me very keenly interested in decorative arts and I invest in a collectible book each month on different topics related to the history of furniture.
I would say you’ve already taken the right first step by formally educating yourself in design at Insight School. There will be hurdles to overcome but you have the foundation, it’s up to you to keep the momentum going and keep learning. I have realized that my design is constantly evolving, influenced by things that inspire and amaze!
