Salute to All of My Fellow Interior Designers!
I must say that this spring semester was challenging, but it was fun at last and we did it! We finished another semester strong. Thanks so much to NESAD for giving me the opportunity to blog and revamp this site. Thanks also to Molly Akin and Jordan Cogswell for their endless support to help make this blog possible. I will truly miss blogging here, but you can still find me at my other blog and around NESAD this summer. Adios for now!
Last but not least, Congratulations to Class of 2012!
In this month’s Stuff Magazine’s issue features one of NESAD’s interior design students, Kim Boutwell. Kim has a very stylist taste that translates to her studio space really nicely where she shares with her significant other, Sean Frederick. This chic studio that Kim designs is done with a limited budget and shows that all it takes it a “little creativity and an appreciation for timeless design.”
What is so great about this palette is that it is soothing, fun, and classic. Also the different shapes, colors, and materials work so well together to create a beautiful space that makes this space both functional and aesthetically pleasing. Congrats Kim!
