1. Who are you and how are you into what you do?
My Name is Sheetal Balwani and I am a professional Interior Designer and Consultant. My company name is Design Ambience by Sheetal Balwani.
My personal approach towards designing any available space brings me to the point where I would like to create a story which can be visible in form of a theme. I think nothing goes out of fashion when we can really have an attitude to carry an Art.
2. Tell us about your Journey.
It was not an easy journey as I started my career in some other direction. I worked with multiple online shopping brands and experienced a hardcore corporate lifestyle.
Somewhere, I was not happy with what I was into. It was good for my pocket but my soul was still hungry to get what I don’t even know.
One fine day during a deep conversation with my elder sister reminded me that I always wanted to be an Interior Designer. That was the day I decided to take my first step towards my dream. It was hard but worth it. I continued my classes, studies, assignments and market visits along with my job.
Post that finding a job was another struggle because I was a fresher in this field but although I was not a fresher. Leaving my job and assisting someone without getting paid was not an option for me.
After the struggle of a year, finally, I got appointed for an online Interior company which was a startup just like my newly born career. There I worked to handle the entire project, starting from client’s meeting till site handover.
Since starting I knew that I would start my own brand and will take that up to the heights where my soul feels the satisfaction of my existence.
Very soon I left my job and started doing my independent projects. Currently, I am on my way to create brand recognition for my company – Design Ambience by Sheetal Balwani.
3. That Winning Stree moment.
Although every time when I get a compliment from the client for my work is like a winning stree moment for me. However, the most remembered one was when I got awarded as the best creative designer of the month in my company and it was my 4th Month in that company.
4. Three words you say to yourself when in front of the mirror.
“Never Say Never”.
5. Winning message to other women.
“The Best will Always Take Test”.
Never compromise on your dreams. The only one who can stop you to achieve your heights is “You”. In your bad time, feel excited to welcome good time because every night ends with a Beautiful Morning.
6. Difficulties you faced when fulfilling your dreams/aspirations?
That I have already shared how I had to arrange my own cost of studies. Doing a part time and full-time job along with classes, assignments, market visits and practice was really hard. I forgot the meaning of weekends because my week offs and leaves used to go in completing assignments. Overtime in office was killing. I had no option to leave my job because that was the only source of income I had.
But, in the End, It’s Worth it.
7. What makes you extraordinary?
I think my struggle made me extraordinary. I am very comfortable in an uncomfortable zone and I don’t give up easily. Furthermore, as far as my designing style is concerned, I love introducing fusion in trends with some non-trendy elements. It’s all about how you want to treat the space.
8. Your Favorite quote that you believe in.
“Life is Beautiful”.
