TBT! Serendipity does exist! So honored to have been a juror of this year’s Drexel’s University Residential Interior Design class. Such an amazing group of young talented students designing one of the units I have lived at The Tourane Apartments 20+ years a go. So honored to have partnered with the talented and fun teacher Angela Toledo from @artisticainteriors and Curt Meir from @kravet.lj.bf.philadelphia
Some fun an not so fun memories from school years past came to mind! 😅
Please scroll to see some of my favorite designs by the talented students! .
Dreamy bedside situation designed by @kristin_kgdesigns. Fun fact: the Keane Driftwood Charging Nightstand has an in-drawer integrated power strip with 2 outlets and 2 USB ports. Great for charging your phone overnight 📱 🌛
Last week marked another nail-biting conclusion to our Ownership Celebration at SERA! Why nail-biting? Because as a 100% employee-owned firm (since 2002!), staff is rewarded for working hard, making smart decisions, and steering the company toward success every day – in the form of stocks. So each year, after a week of cultural presentations, project tours, and a financial health course, we hold a big party where our stock valuation is announced. How well did we do this time around? 🤫🤐🥳🎉 Thanks to all of our 170 employees in Portland + Oakland, our clients and partners, for making 2018 our best year yet!
*Dining Table Favorites* Which is your favorite? 👇🏼 Comment down below
One type of post I like to make most is round ups of my favorite items in a certain category. I’m always drawn to unique silhouettes, interesting materials, and overall innovation, so dining tables are extremely fun for me to research. It’s one of those pieces of furniture that designers seem to have a lot of fun designing... probably because there is so much creative freedom in such a simple shape. Hope you enjoy these!

I thrive in the outdoors! Nature, greenery and flowers always inspire my designs. Growing up, I dreamed of being a gardener or a florist... But here I am, a designer, with a passion for landscape design.
I love this courtyard we designed. Originally, a useless patch of cement turned into a miniature oasis! Greenery, flowers, waterfall, gazebo, outdoor kitchen with a barbecue grill, miniature golf course, walking trails... .
The space is perfect for residents who enjoy outdoor activities, for special events and community gatherings, barbecue night....So many possibilities!... .
Do you have an unused outdoor space? I’d love to turn it into a mini ‘Garden Of Eden’. #act2interiors#designandbuild
