Aaliyah discovered her desire for design through her mother, who when she was nine, was a home decorator and realtor. She realized her passion would be interior design in her freshman year of college. She obtained a CIDA- an accredited bachelors degree in Interior Design - from the University of Louisiana at Lafayette. Through her college career she not only learned different ranges of styles: eclectic, industrial, global, modern, etc., she also was able to create designs for spaces that were also residential and commercial, which include businesses, hospitality, and education projects. She is more than determined to get a job done and to get it done with precision. She comes with a fresh and innovative look on design and is aware of design trends going on now.
Describe your go-to style:
My go-to style is modern eclectic. I love mixing neutral palettes with pops of color and mixing textures.
What drives you to design?
What drives me to design is knowing that I not only create beautiful spaces, but can also affect how someone feels in them. It makes me want to create spaces for people that will make them feel more happy, confident, and fun.
From where do you draw most of your inspiration?
I draw most of my inspiration from nature when designing, but if not nature than usually a concept. An example would be something that does not have an obtainable vision, but can be created once you put the right imagination and creativity to it.
