Eye-Opener

I came up with the slogan: A modern update to classic style thinking I was sure this is what my design point of view entailed. Though the crux of my aesthetic holds true to my slogan, it seems to evolve as I mature and learn more about the industry. I came up with the tagline before interviewing for an internship at Omniarte, the design firm of Erinn Valencich. Waiting to be interviewed brought back memories of flipping through magazines trying to figure out the direction I would someday take.  Suddenly, sitting in Erinn’s living room, I saw the light bright and clear. Her space was fun, quirky, witty, colorful, comfortable, all-embracing – everything I didn’t know I was searching for. I quickly realized an aesthetic can’t always be defined by one term or genre, or even a slogan. My internship at Omniarte was short-lived, but I will forever cherish this moment for experiencing my goal in person and not through some glossy pages of Elle Decor or House Beautiful.

I share with you, some of Erinn’s work.

Her use of color, pattern and texture is always so harmonious.

This was for a spread in Better Homes and Gardens.

In typical intern form, I steamed these drapes and ironed the heck out of the pillow shams. Lucky me.
