Founder and Principal at L Rose Interiors, Lakesha Rose, recently sat down with Haute Design to share valuable design insights.


Haute Design: Did you always want to become an interior designer? What was you "aha" moment, when you knew this was the right path for you?

Lakesha Rose: When I was young, I was always creative and my outlets were, and still are, interior design, cooking and entertaining at home. My 'aha' moment came when I was working for developers in Chicago as the selection designer for the high-rise condominiums while simultaneously attending a local college for interior design courses. I was able to attend school and operate in the real world of design at the same time.

I am not sure the instructors always liked it because I normally had additional questions about what was being taught in class. That was back in 2002 and I have been going ever since.

LR: The referrals. It tells me the truth about how I am doing.
