1) In your own words describe your unique style and creative aesthetic?
I would say Contemporary Hospitality. Whether styling our home, our yard or a specific event, my main goal is to stay Contemporary, but have everyone involved feel incredibly welcome.
2) When starting a new project, what is your creative process?
I need the inspiration first. After that I have to make a plan, decide on what I’m going to do myself and what I’m going to contract out, and then get it done!
3) Out of the creative people you have worked with, who is it that you respect and admire the most? [And why?]
I’ve worked with lots of small-town talent – people who are totally amazing, and if they ever “make it big”, I’ll be able to say that “I knew them when!” I have great respect for those who organize brilliantly, and those who follow through on the plan with amazing designs that I could NEVER have imagined myself. There’s normally a bump or two in the road – and the ones who rise to the occasion in those instances have my utmost respect, as well!
4) When looking for inspiration is there a particular thing you do to get inspired? [Why does this work so well for you?]
I look at store displays, magazines, blogs and Pinterest! I normally have an idea of what I want, and I search those spots until I find something that can help me visualize it even better!
5) What has brought you to this point in your career? And what is your advice for people looking to follow in your footsteps?
Probably more trial and error than anything else! And every day I’m still learning, always pressing in, trying to be better and better. If you can’t improve, then what’s the point? My advice is, you don’t know until you try! And once you’ve tried once, do it again and again and again until you’re can’t lose!
