NESAD students swept the awards at this year’s Career Day competition — congratulations to all!
Congrats to MAIA students Farida Sadliwala and Lilit Revazian, who both took home awards from the American Society of Interior Designers—New England last month! Work was judged in 18 categories, with Farida winning in the Student Residential and Contract-Retail categories, and Lilit in the Student Contract Corporate category.
The students projects were featured on Suffolk’s website, where you can read more about their work and designs.
Several NESAD students submitted work for the IIDA New England Interior Design Awards this year. The students were recognized at last week’s award ceremony, and MAIA student Natalia Villanova Mitre won an IIDA award for her graduate thesis project. Congrats to all involved!
Congratulations to MAIA student Natalia Villanova Mitre! She recently won a $2500 scholarship from NEWH and celebrated at last night’s New England Region NEWH Holiday Gala.
Congrats to MAIA student Kim Boutwell, one of the 2014 winners of the IIDA NE Student Scholarship!
Applicants submitted a two-page digital portfolio, two letters of recommendation, a current class schedule, and a scholarship application describing where they hoped their design career path would take them. After a fierce competition with many creative submissions three talented winners were awarded scholarships in the amount of $1,200 each!

The 3rd Annual IIDA Student Design Charette at NeoCon 2014 took place on Tuesday, June 10th. Featuring 10 teams, IIDA Student Members were faced with solving a design challenge within 6 hours, using only hand drafting and rendering. The teams then presented their design to a panel of judges that included Zurich Esposito, EVP of AIA Chicago; Scott Hierlinger, IIDA, LEED AP, ID+C; Tom Marquardt, Assoc IIDA, SBID; Felice Silverman, FIIDA, LEED AP, ID+C. Following their critique of the solutions, the judges selected the 1st and 2nd place winning teams.
MAIA Students Kim Boutwell and Mary Schambach were nominated by NESAD and participated in this year’s NeoCon event — Kim’s team won 2nd place!
Congrats to Kim and Mary on a job well done!
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!
