Young Entrepreneur Pioneering in Interior Design

Meet Anupriya Vyas better known as Ann.

Ann has just launched her own interior design firm ‘Ann Designer Living… At just 27 years old, this young female entrepreneur from India has achieved a lot. With years of high-profile interior design experience under her belt, numerous awards including 2nd place for the best designer at Stonemart, not to mention her many academic achievements, Ann is unstoppable!

At Birmingham’s Grand Designs Live show 2010, (8-10 October) Ann took a bold step towards the launch of her new interior design company ‘Ann Designer Living’ by single handedly setting up and running her own exhibit just days before the prestigious event.

As one of the only solo interior designers to exhibit at the huge event, Ann was even noticed by Mr Grand Designs himself, Kevin McCloud (right) who remarked that he had never seen a young freelance designer exhibit in such an event and that this was admirable.

Ann states, “Looking back, I now believe this was one of the best career decisions I have made so far. I got a lot of interest and enquiries about my services and also recognition in the trade. I was also approached by other senior designers to assist them on their big projects. To sum it all up, it was a successful venture.”

We asked Ann what excites her most about her line of work and she said, “What I love most about Interior design is the challenge of dealing creatively with individual spaces to make the best of their aesthetic and functional use.”

It just goes to show you, as Samantha our CEO commented in the last post, ‘to be… or not to be?’ When it comes to entrepreneurship, you have to take this attitude and just do it!

Below is a short elevator pitch we took when we caught up with Ann Designer Living at the Grand Designs Live event in Birmingham 2010. Watch out for this Young Entrepreneur Pioneering in Birmingham City, YEP!
