It’s Designer Spotlight week again and we are featuring our newest team member – Naomi Kim! This practical, modern, and efficient designer earned her BFA in Interior Design at the Art Institute of Washington and hopes to continue her education in the architectural field in the future. To keep her design wheels spinning, she loves perusing through the latest design publications to catch the newest features, materials, and ideas in her spare time. Naomi will be taking over our social media accounts this week, so be sure to follow us on Facebook and Instagram for some design tips and inspiration!
How long have you worked with Renewal?
I’ve been at Renewal for a short, but exciting three months!
What is your main design aesthetic?
I enjoy the minimalistic approach to design; a well-designed space will always have a clear purpose, whether it be to relax, work, or gather. I find the ‘less is more’ approach will always allow room to grow.
What inspires you?
I take inspiration from the world around me. Current events, the natural world, and the people around you all have something to offer when taken into the perspective of a designer.
What attracted you to interior design?
I am fascinated with the dynamics of people in a space. When entering a space, there is an instinctual need for individuals to gather toward a particular point, whether it be the center, a corner, or scattered about. These dynamics take into account the psychology, structure, and function of a room, therefore solidifying the need for spaces to be designed in a way that facilitates that purpose with style and ingenuity.
