What Does Black History Month Mean To You This Year?

These are such tumultuous times, so for me this year I am all about reflection. I’ve been thinking a lot about how far we’ve come, but yet how far we still have to go. It’s about finding my place in the world and working to find common ground with others who have different values and belief systems than I do. I’m also looking back on past leaders like the Obamas. To me they represent the best of Black excellence and have made history and crushed all the ceilings that exist. It doesn’t get any better in terms of Black love, Black excellence and just #goals.

Where Are You Finding Inspiration To Create This Year?

I’m always inspired by color. I love using color in fresh ways, and look to a beautifully curated color palette as a strong foundation for any space I’m designing when I begin a project. I gravitate towards color through interiors, travel, and those unique moments that crop up during everyday life.
