Welcome to my first blog post. I am Charlene, Founder of CeeK Design Studio. I just wanted to give you an insight into my Journey. I have a creative spirit, from a performing artist to a self-taught seamstress. My passion for Architecture & Interior Design surfaced when I started my inner healing, bittersweet but needed. My life changed after taking a leap of faith. Looking at my environment & my mindset, I altered my surroundings & way of thinking. One foot in front of the other, I started to feel lighter & more positive. From a different perspective, I explored my creative side deeper by studying an A-Level in Art & Design.


Interior Design Style

Learning myself again, I fell in love with Interior Architecture & Design! The whole subject resonated with me. From Timeless designs & period features to Classic, Minimalist, Chic Interiors with Biophilic surroundings. An obvious option now, but I never thought all the Vector software I had bought for fun would be something I would do as a passion. You don't need a degree to become an interior designer; however, Learning myself, the value & meaning behind interiors & how it all relates to the way we live, I needed to learn more & do more.


How I Became an Architectural Interior Designer

In 2019 I committed myself to study for my BA Hons in Interior Architecture & Design at Sheffield Hallam University. Alongside my studies, in September 2020, CeeK Design was born. In addition to studying, Jo-Chrobak mentored me in her online Interior Design Business School. I wanted to understand how to expand my skills to conduct and execute a successful business.

In July 2022, I Graduated with First-Class Honours in Interior Architecture & Design. My Final Project, "The Community Art Station", won the Award for Future-now of 2022 for Equality, Diversity & Inclusion and is shortlisted in the Interior Educators Reform-2022 category of social justice, addressing the issues of equity, fundamental human rights, and dignity for all.


Finishing my degree makes me feel keen and excited for the next segment; it has been a journey and a half. Whilst celebrating my achievements, I am now working as a freelance Architectural Interior Designer with Ranbir Lal Architecture & Design. My accomplishments and different project stages, from visiting the client, surveying the site and drawing plans, bring a smile to my face. Having first-hand experience working alongside Architects, Structural Engineers, Interior Designers, and Tradespeople is music to my ears. I'm not going to lie; I have been busy; however, I appreciate and enjoy the entire process. The Journey has been an invaluable experience that has allowed me to hone my craft and gain experience in real-life projects. The Journey has just begun, and I look forward to implementing the knowledge I have in CeeK Design Studio.
