I decided I would do a Q&A blog post and I recently asked you over on Instagram to submit any and all questions. I went through them all and below I’m answering your most asked Q's!
Q: How do you spend your free time or recharge?
A: When I’m not working, I love spending time with friends! Playing Mario Kart, watching movies and most recently playing with Legos. Yes, you read that right haha my friend and I most recently completed the Lego Taj Mahal that contains over 10,000 pieces.
Q: How old are you?
A: I’m 25! My birthday is in July :)
Q: What editing program do you use?
A: I get this question asked A LOT, I use Final Cut Pro.
Q: What would your dream vacation spot be?
A: Probably Hawaii! I went a few years ago and loved it. I want to go back and explore all the islands!
Q: Where do you find inspiration?
A: I find a lot of my inspiration from Pinterest and YouTube. I love watching YouTube videos in my free time and I always get so inspired watching some of my favorite creators.
Q: What did you study in college?
A: I received my AA in fashion product development and my Bachelors in business at the Fashion Institute of Design and Merchandising in Los Angeles!
Q: When did your love for interior design start?
A: My love for interior design really started when I got a job at West Elm in college. I was part of their in-home design team and I had so much fun helping people design their spaces. That’s when it really clicked that I had a passion for interior design. I already had a huge love for DIY and crafting from my previous scrapbook and fashion channel. I decided to combine my new love for interior design and my current love for crafting to create the channel Lone Fox!
Q: What is your biggest accomplishment so far?
A: Hitting 1 million YouTube subscribers, which is still SO crazy to say/type! I truly want to thank everybody who has watched my content over the past couple of years.
Q: What interior design trends are you over?
A: Lately, I’ve been really over shiplap. I haven’t been gravitating towards the modern farmhouse style and shiplap plays a huge part in that. I do however love shiplap on a ceiling but not the biggest fan of it on the wall.
Q: How can I find my interior design style?
A: I would say to look on Pinterest and see what style you are most attracted to. Search boho, industrial, eclectic, mid century etc. Really spend some time researching and you’ll soon find yourself coming back to the same style. If you’re not sure what style to go with for a particular room, I would make 3 different mood boards. Give yourself a few days to decide, share with friends and family too!
Q: Will you ever buy your own place?
A: YES! Hopefully in the near future :)
Q: Upgrading a bedroom one piece at a time, where should I start?
A: I would first make sure you have clear vision in mind with how you want the end result to look. Perhaps a mood board or inspiration image you can keep handy. I personally think you should purchase the most statement piece first. In some cases, this could be a bed frame or even a rug. Once you have your statement piece in place, you can find more subtle pieces that only elevate the space and create a cohesive design.
Q: What are some basic tools I should buy for my DIY kit?
Q: Favorite home decor brands when working with a small budget?
A: HomeGoods, Amazon, Target, IKEA, H&M Home, Zara Home and Wayfair are some of my favorites!
Q: Can I pay you to redo my space?
A: I get this question asked almost every day and I’m so sorry to say that I don’t offer any interior design services. I really don’t consider myself an interior designer and at this time I prefer to only redo spaces for my YouTube channel. I do however, have a series called “What Would Drew Do” where I take your design dilemmas and turn them into budget friendly solutions. You can submit your space here: https://lonefox.com/pages/what-would-drew-do
Q: What is your step by step process when it comes to designing/redesigning a space?
A: This is another popular question I kept getting asked! I actually have an entire video dedicated to this question on my YouTube channel, you can watch it below!
