One Architect + One Product Designer = Design Love Bliss
I consider myself one lucky lady. I am married to the love of my life, my best friend, and a fellow lover of all things design. Our conversations are filled with brainstorming ideas for home renovations, crafts and ideas for his freelance business EVRT Studio. Being a design duo, our inspiration is an obvious choice: The Magnificent Charles and Ray Eames!
My love for crafting and DIY began at a very young age. We did not have all of the latest and greatest toys; instead we spent hours upon hours turning rock piles into mountains and bushes into Care Bear clouds (yep, you heard that right). Some of my fondest memories as a child were when I was elbow to elbow with my loved ones; hands engaged in building Easter egg displays from sugar, dolls from flowers, and Christmas trees from garland and hangers. I revived this love as an adult by learning how to sew and knit. This has brought me a great deal of enjoyment and satisfaction.
I also chose a career that would allow me to continue to develop my creativity as an Architect. This has proved to be a very fulfilling career choice for me. No two days are ever the same. Everyday brings a new design challenge. And, I get to see my work unveil itself during the construction process. There is no greater feeling than to see an old, abandoned building, destined for destruction, be given a new life; a second chance at making an impact in its community.
A few years ago, my husband and I took a big step. We purchased our first house, a fixer upper at that. The following years we spilled our blood, sweat, and tears into the house, transforming it into our home. Stay tuned for a series of entries discussing our home renovation.
