Briefly tell us about your design journey.

When I was a kid, I used to draw house floor plans on a huge pad of paper or build them out of Legos, but my interest in interior design really started after I graduated from college. I spent a while trying to figure out what my passions and hobbies were outside of work and school. In the process, I discovered that I really enjoy defining my style and creating the space I live in.

For my first apartment, I bought a vintage rug as a gift to myself, and the rest was history. Nowadays, I have a collection of rugs, and I’ve designed my home around them (one of them is from Revival!). I like mixing thrift and vintage pieces, new stuff, and items with sentimental value to create something stylish but still my own.

When I first saw an ad for Spoak on Instagram, I was so excited about the possibility of designing for others through the platform. For now, I’m sticking to designing imaginary spaces in Vizis, but I plan to keep learning through the BeSpoak School and hopefully design for clients someday.

Where do you find your inspiration?

The places and spaces around me: a funky restaurant interior, a beautiful old house, or a city I’ve visited. I also love using one-of-a-kind finds from thrift stores or Facebook Marketplace as a starting point for a room.

Tell us about a designer or artist you love. What about them and their work are you drawn to?

I really like three artists: Amelia Hadouchi (ameliahadouchi.com), Bonnie Gray (bonniegrayart.com), and Emmie Lou (emmielouart.com). They’re all abstract artists, but they each have a very distinct style. I don’t know exactly what it is that draws me to them, but their work has stuck with me.

What do you do on your time off to recharge creatively?

Cook (and make a huge mess in the process), walk my dog, complete a Daily Play Vizi on Spoak, work on some of my half-finished macrame projects, or read one of the 5 books I’ve started but haven’t yet finished.

What's the best thing you've consumed recently?

Amber wine and honey cake at Supra in DC.
