Welcome to Renewal’s very first Designer Spotlight! This week, we will be featuring one of our very talented designers, Taryn Sears. She’ll be taking over our social media accounts, so make sure to follow us on Facebook, Instagram and Pinterest for some great design tips and inspiration!
Taryn uses her creative talents for transformation. After receiving her Bachelor’s in Interior Design at Bellevue College, Taryn began her work at Renewal, where she most enjoys bringing her clients’ dreams to life. Her designs evoke a sense of luxury and sophistication, without sacrificing comfort and livability. It’s the family-oriented atmosphere, religious values, and encouraging coworkers that Taryn values most about the Renewal work environment.
You have $100 to put the finishing touches on a room. What do you do?
A vase of flowers or a bouquet can go a long way towards adding warmth and comfort to a space.
What would your perfect room look like?
A warm, inviting, comfortable living room with plush pillows, a throw, coffee & fireplace! (Can you tell I am ready for fall?)
What is the hardest part of being an interior designer?
Endless design, and material possibilities! There are just too many choices! And always wanting the “latest and greatest” design trends in my own home.
If your design aesthetic was a drink, what would it be and why?
A glass of red sangria – relaxed & sophisticated!
What design trend do you hope comes back from the past?
1920s Art Deco – it’s on its way back in, but hasn’t quite reached the Seattle market yet. (See images from the Viceroy Hotel here.)
If you could design a home for any celebrity, who would it be and why?
Reese Witherspoon – I feel like we have similar personalities, and she would be a great client to work for!
What is the most interesting room you’ve ever been in?
Viceroy Hotel in Santa Monica – I’m in love with the Art Deco aesthetic! (See images from the Viceroy Hotel here.)
What is your #1 piece of design advice?
Don’t design your home to be super trendy, as trends change every 5-6 years. Do what makes YOU most comfortable, keeping in mind that trends change, and how often you want to change up your space. If you are okay with changing things up every 5 years, then GREAT. If not, keep with something more classic in style.
