started out as a popcorn girl, today she opens her own home business, BB-design.
Wearing long frocks and a red ribbon in her hair, this colourful woman
wants to redecorate your home. She will no longer be selling popcorn, but
creating wallpapers for Sims all over Sim City.
has a creative talent, she says. - Some colours and a minimum of inspiration
is all you need, but to open your own business naturally takes some planning,
too. It's not something you do the next morning.
la Beth Hanssen knows what she is talking about. She has been planning
to establish BB-design for a long time, and now the dream is coming through
as she finally can open her own studio, built next to her family's house.
For years she has been taking care of their home while her well known actor,
Jonathan Hanssen, has been the one bringing home the finances. After their
daughter started school, Bitchy la Beth spent hours in their beautiful
garden, painting. She discovered how easy it was to create something.
needs to get passionate and personal. Stop wondering what everybody else
will be thinking of your work. If you like it, that is what counts. For
wallpapers, I realize that it's no point in releasing designs which nobody
will care for, after all it would be hard to get into business if there's
no buyers, but in the start I allow myself not to think a lot about
how popular my production will get. After all, my fridge and ability of
paying bills will not be depending on BB-design. And, if I should create
wallpapers in order to please as many SimCity homes as possible, I would
have to match the already existing interior trends, instead of creating
what kind of wallpapers can we expect from BB-design?
I plan for a simple but yet original and rather individual design. For
example, my first series is very minimalistic, not because I can't do any
better, but because I found the existing wallpaper industry lacks calm
and anonymous alternatives. A good wallpaper should not drag away attention from
the room's interior, but rather make your exclusive sofa stand out. Also,
I will produce several patterns that can be combined - bringing out the
artist in everyone when one will be able to use one rather minimal base,
with a couple slightly more decorative alternatives for variation here
and there. Mixing one or more wallpapers in the same room can make wonders!
are still keeping your household and looking after your daughter after
school, and at nights you often need to give parties to please your husband's
many friends and contacts. Will there be enough spare time for your business?
don't worry at all about that. A lot of the creative process happens when
I do anything but work in my studio, I can grow ideas and come up with
original concepts no matter where I am or who I'm with. I must admit I
work best when I can spend a full day alone in my studio, and often I can.
In the long run I think it would be realistic to release a new serie of
3 or 4 patterns monthly, and rather take a break from it all for periods.
you, Bitchy la Beth Hanssen.
