In honor of American Business Women’s Day this month, I thought it would be fun to highlight a few of the incredible women I have had the pleasure of meeting through the interior design industry. Of course there are many talented women in design, but these five women have served as an inspiration to me and I am grateful to have them in my life. Please take a minute to check them out on Instagram and consider following them if you feel inclined.
Traci is one of the most talented and respected designers in the industry. She is known for her luxurious and elegant designs, as well as her philanthropic work within the Dallas design community. Our team took a trip to Dallas last year, where they got to meet Traci and see her work firsthand at the Kips Bay Decorator Show House.
Bria is someone I’ve known for almost seven years and I am continually in awe of her creativity and bravery. She has an ambitious vision and is also very down-to-earth and easy to be around. She has been featured in Traditional Home, HGTV Magazine, Forbes, Oprah Daily, Architectural Digest, House Beautiful, Martha Stewart Living…just to name a few! Additionally she owns a delightful store, Brooke & Lou, which you can explore online here.
Christi is a force to be reckoned with. She and I share the same enneagram type– We’re both eights! She has more tenacity than anybody I know and I truly admire her for that. Additionally, she doesn’t take herself too seriously and will play with her food at fancy restaurants! Everyone needs that friend who provides much needed comic relief at times!
Staci is an immensely gifted interior designer who has also proven to be a masterful business owner. It is interesting to note that she never initially thought she would enjoy the business side of things, but she now leads a team of designers much greater than she ever dreamed possible. In addition, she has won multiple design awards. For all of my Oklahoma friends who bleed orange, Staci got her interior design degree from Oklahoma State University.
