Erica E. - Design Consultant - St. George

Q: What's your favorite design style - where do you shop for this?
Erica's Answer: I believe the best designs are intentional. When someone slows down to look at the small details that go into a space, it creates a feeling of thoughtfulness and care. I find myself drawn to clean, modern design styles, but the beauty of working with clients is it provides me with the opportunity to explore many design styles.

Q: What's the worst design fad in the past?
A: One of the unique aspects of design is the repetitive nature. Styles recirculate every 20 years which means a fad seen in the past is bound to re-circulate. Whether they are worth recirculating or not is another matter. Two fads I like to stay away from are the "Live, Laugh, Love" signs that seem to be found in every middle-aged women's kitchen and linoleum flooring. There are so many better alternatives for flooring that won't break the bank and will stand the test of time.

Q: Your current obsession (song, show, etc.)?
A: I have really been throwing myself into painting lately. It can be a challenge to get my ideas onto the canvas but I do find peace with the fact that if my execution isn't how I envisioned, I can paint right over it!
