WHO IS CAMERON?
Cameron Henderson is the founder of Bougie On A Bougette, LLC. She is happy to call Washington, DC metro area her home, having made her way here from Tennessee over ten years ago. As a child, Cameron became aware of the gift and passion she had for the Arts and worked to perfect her craft. She has always shown great zeal, passion, and talent for art and design, and those interests have helped drive her career today.
Cameron’s experiences motivated her to become an entrepreneur and designer. She is a 2007 alumnus of Tennessee State University with a Bachelor of Arts Degree in Graphic Arts with a minor in Design. As a student, Cameron was fortunate to have learned about and explored various genres of art. Home decor has always been an interest of hers, but it wasn’t until she took an interior design course in college that she realized her eye for interior design. In this class, she learned a lot about residential and commercial design and studied color theory and variation, textiles, design, creative direction, and more. She is currently a visual arts teacher but has become a devoted entrepreneur, utilizing her skills and passions to help people like you. Most importantly, she is a loving and devoted daughter and mother. I love being a mom and spending time with her 5-year-old daughter. She is full of energy and very smart. As the founder of Bougie on a Bougette, she looks forward to working with you and helping you design the space of your dreams!
WHY DID CAMERON DECIDE TO START HER PAGE?
Cameron said her page started off strictly as a hobby! She never imagined it would escalate to what it is now. It started as her finding fun store products and posting what she’d found on her page. The whole concept of putting pieces together from different stores and different color schemes was something people really enjoyed. Lots of people don’t realize that you can find really nice pieces for a fraction of the price! I think my page has helped a lot of people out! My page is not strictly just my home – Cameron keeps it diverse to showcase what people can find in their local stores.
WHAT ARE THE DETAILS BEHIND CAMERON’S E-DESIGN?
Cameron started getting so much interest in her e-design that she decided to start e-design services. She created another page called @bougieonabougette that is full of all of her designs. It’s more mood boards than e-design, but people get so inspired by these boards, so it’s been a great experience! Cameron loves putting pieces together so her passion has become her business. Some people struggle with visual design, so this is something Cameron helps with on a day-to-day basis. If you or someone you know is interested in Cameron’s services, you can sign up on her website which can be found through her IG page!
CAMERON JUST MOVED! WHAT ARE SOME TIPS SHE HAS FOR MOVING?
Cameron created her own mood boards of how she wanted her new home and rooms to be decorated. She started selling her current items that were outdated or that she no longer wanted and started buying things she wanted for the new home. She said she had a little over 50% of her decor by the time she moved! When she moved, she knew what color scheme she wanted and she had envisioned each room which saved her a lot of time! She highly recommends planning ahead when moving as far as furniture and decor goes.
WHAT ARE CAMERON’S TIPS FOR BEGINNERS?
Whether you are an inspirational page or sharing pictures of your own home, it’s important to stand out! Find something that makes you unique and different from the rest.
