Meet Brittney Webber, Mitzi Design Challenge Winnerdesigned with spoak - watermark

Recent Design Challenge winner and Spoak member Brittney Webber has always had an eye for design, starting from when she redecorated her own space from a young age. Since joining Spoak, Brittney has channeled her love for interiors even more. We were excited to learn more about her after her design for Mitzi's new collection with designer Megan Molten caught our eye.

Briefly tell us about your design journey.

My upbringing was simple but imaginative. My mother had a gift for painting, and my father was a wiz with carpentry, so my world was full of design and DIY-ing. At a young age, I was constantly redecorating, rearranging, and reimagining my room. This feeling of connection with spaces, making them more than just a room, carried on into adolescence and quickly found itself on the back burner as I took a "practical" corporate job. Over the last eight years, I tried to resurface my creativity, but my career took me elsewhere, eventually leading to burnout and jumping ship from my safe tech job. With no clear path in sight, I honed in on my inner child and manifestation practices, which led me to Spoak. Alas, the floodgates of inspiration, community, design, and more were open, and my mind could run free! It has been a month since joining, and the number of opportunities that have surfaced from connections, learning, and designing makes me excited for the future. I am still trying to navigate my path forward, but I can tell you this much: taking risks that align with my values has been the best decision ever. 2023 is looking bright!

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

My design inspiration changes based on my mood and where I'm at in life. Right now, I find myself loving a mixture of Kelly Wearstler and Athena Calderone, two completely contrasting designers, but both beautiful in their own ways. One pushes the boundaries of maximalism, whereas the other lives in serene spaces with minimal touches. It's the best of both worlds, in my opinion.

Where do you find your inspiration?

Before I start any project, whether it is a room in my house, a design challenge, or a furniture fixer-upper, I find myself going down a rabbit hole of Pinterest and Instagram. Curation and mood boarding is an art that brings such satisfaction. Other than that, I love a good coffee table book. When was the last time you actually read one of the design books you bought for decor? Try picking it up and reading it from start to finish. I swear pictures paired with stories provide a lot of inspiration.


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

I love grabbing a coffee and posting up at a hotel lobby while I read, create designs on Spoak, or scavenge Facebook Marketplace for gems to add to my home. Movement is also an essential way I recharge daily. I recently decided to teach pilates, so if you're in the NYC area, come move with me in the new year!

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

TV: White Lotus! Is anyone else obsessed with the theme song as much as I am? Book: I'm currently reading The Artist's Way by Julia Cameron. Food: Anything Lebanese. My favorite in NYC is Balade. Cocktail: Negronis made at home because cocktails in NY are $$$. Podcast: More Than One Thing by Athena Calderone.
