Erin has a MA in Interior Design from the Corcoran School of Arts & Design at George Washington University as well as a BA in Art History. She has worked for high-end residential design firms on the east coast in the DC metro and NYC metro regions. Her design philosophy is that homes should be a sanctuary from the everyday world, bringing warmth, history, and practicality while never sacrificing beauty or quality. Through the meticulously planned layers of texture, color, and pattern, as well as mixing both vintage and new furniture, Erin brings this philosophy to life. She has experience in both renovations and new construction and has worked on projects in various destinations.
Describe your go-to style:
Eclectic and transitional. I don't adhere to only one style as there are elements from every design period and style that I draw inspiration from! Whether a luxe brass table created in a small studio in Brooklyn, a mid-century Womb chair or a vintage Moroccan or Swedish rug, I love how pieces from different styles can work together.
We know you love designing, but what about it do you love most?
I love the energy that is created by a well-designed space. The synergy between furniture, textures and finishes and how they come together to create a cohesive palette and aesthetic is inspiring. Seeing the items come together in person and the subtle details of each piece is always so special...It truly does change how people feel and interact with each other and I love that I can be a part of that transformation.
From where do you draw most of your inspiration?
I draw so much of my inspiration from nature, architecture and different cultures. Textures brought in from nature, such as wood grains, leathers and even metal and gem materials. Patterns inspired from different cultures such as textile-block patterns and motifs. I love mixing these elements in unexpected ways.
