Interior Designer: Ninisha

Ninisha, a young and enthusiastic interior designer talks about her style, approach towards design and reflects on her interior design career of 3 yrs. Read on to know more about the Young Turk. 

When did you start your practice?

My practice started by default. The day I was complemented for my house and then it followed by my first contract I knew what I wanted. It didn't take me a minute to drop my comfy corporate job and start my firm under the name of Dimensionz by Niiniisha in 2011.

Where did you study design? If not how did you get inspired to get into this field?

I have never had the opportunity to attend or study the theory of designing. I guess I had the designing bug in me since I was a kid, it just developed as an obsession with time. If I really have to credit my learning then it would be my plumbers, carpenters and the civil team. I owe my learning to them it’s been an on job for me throughout. 

I have also been fortunate enough to get the right opportunities and amazing clients that has helped me conquer my dreams till date …

 What are the range of services your firm provides?

My firm provides everything that caters to a client’s need…I am a people’s person and believe in being flexible and customizing as per the need. DBN can take up a job of making a coffee table to building a villa from scratch but yes it all boils down to being edgy and redefining style.

What defines your style?

I don’t limit myself to any style, I believe in expanding boundaries and creating. The day I have a definition, I’ll be stagnant and will have nothing to offer.

What is the biggest challenge you have faced till now in this field?

I don’t see a “Challenge as a Challenge” but as an opportunity to create and do something new. If one has the attitude of a go getter nothing remains a challenge any more.

Why should someone hire you over a more established architect?

I have always had this problem of an interior designer being compared to an architect. An architect works on the dimensions and gives a foundation. An interior designer gives life to that space. 

Being a woman, personally I feel I have an edge because I know how the house should be, the needs of the people who’ll be living in it. Designing a house is an emotional thing especially in India because it’s a life time investment that goes in building a house and I see myself as a medium through which my clients realize their dreams. I give an identity to the space and make their house a home.

What is your vision? Where do you see yourself five years hence?

There is a saying: yesterday is history, tomorrow is a mystery, but today is a gift. That is why it is called the "present." I live in the NOW but having said that I certainly believe in moving ahead with time and look forward in being a Brand that redefines design and quality that my clients can swear by.
