How long have you been with Renewal?
I have been working with renewal for 6 short months, but it feels like forever! The atmosphere here is so wonderful.
What is your design aesthetic?
I consider my design aesthetic monochromatic. I love mixing elegant with whimsical styles, to bring warmth and character to a space.
What trends are you excited about right now?
I’m in love with grey! (A very popular trend right now, but I can’t seem to steer clear of it!) It’s a beautiful neutral that is calming and clean. I am convinced grey will be a timeless color statement that we will continue to use for a while!
What inspires you?
I like finding something in a space that will tie the design together, like a picture, or piece of art— something that you can pull multiple colors and textures from to finish the design. Typically, something my client already has in their home.
Where did you go to school? What was your major?
I went to the Art Institute of Seattle, and earned my Bachelor’s degree in Interior Design.
What attracted you to interior design?
I would have to say my mom. Growing up she always had a wonderful sense of taste and design. I can remember always helping her shop for our home. I enjoyed it so much that after high school, I went straight to college to pursue a career in it!
