After the roaring success of July’s event with Emily Yates, CMEdi is heading back to BoConcept in September for Muse with Topaz Pauls! We had BoConcept interior design Dominika answer some questions about her creative life.
Who are you and what do you do?
My name is Dominika Priehradnikova, I am an Interior Designer at BoConcept whilst also running my own Nail Business @domi.mani
Have you been to CreativeMornings before?
I have only been to the four years of CMEdi party and had a great time. The atmosphere and venue were amazing and I found all the talks very touching but inspiring at the same time.
Are you working on any projects right now?
I began domi.mani earlier this year because of my love of art and painting my own nails, so why not do this for other like minded individuals. I am putting in most of my spare time and energy into meeting new clients and artists. So far, I have been lucky enough to be involved with various events with businesses such as WeMake and Qrtrlifecrisis.
Who inspires you?
I have many inspirations. From everyday objects, people, architecture to influential artists like Yves Klein and Picasso. I don’t think it is so much ‘who’ inspires you, but ‘what’ inspires you. Just look around you and inspiration is everywhere!
Do you have any advice to share?
People don’t really tell you how hard it is to start your own business adventure, so my advice would be to stay with it and you will overcome any obstacles that get in your way. Practice makes perfect! And if you want to be successful, you will - just stick at it.
What is something you love that you think more people should know about?
I recently read a really good book called ‘Normal People’ by Sally Rooney. It’s basically a millennial love story, I don’t want to say any more to spoil it.
What do you like to do on a free day in Edinburgh?
I have a dog, so my days off are spent going for long walks together. My favourite place is Arthur’s seat - especially on a foggy day when the visibility is low, there is something magical and mysterious about it. I usually grab a vegan bagel from Bross Bagels before I go, to power up.
