Hi everyone! I’m Austrie, Lisa’s Design Assistant, and I’m beyond excited about the invitation to be a contributor to this Décor & Style Blog, All Por Ju. (Thanks Lisa!) I just graduated from BYU-Idaho’s Interior Design program this spring and I love the experiences being an Interior Designer brings in the glamorous city of Las Vegas!
I just returned from an amazing trip, I experienced many “firsts” during my travels! My first visit to the state of North Carolina, my first experience at High Point Market, my first mastermind coaching event with one hell of a business woman Terri Taylor (stay tuned for a future post on her and the fearless team she leads), my first time meeting the one and only … K E L L Y W E A R S T L E R ! Need I say more???! I’m still on cloud 9 a week later!
With all major holidays comes a flood of relevant reminders, inspiration, and DIY recipes in our social media feeds. Being that I am a visually-drawn person, sites such as Pinterest, Instagram, and Tumblr are my go-tos. In case you’ve forgotten or haven’t been reminded by whichever platforms you follow, Valentine’s Day is coming up in just five short days! While I try and narrow down what romantic and affectionate expressions I’ll be creating for my loved ones… here are some of my favorite Valentine’s Day related PINSPIRATIONS.
If I’m ever lacking creativity or need a rush of artistic insight, beauty tips, a fashion update, and pretty much anything under the sun… I look to Pinterest. It’s my go-to site and houses over 5,000 ideas I’ve collected since joining. I love the fact that I can easily organize projects, have the ability to “hide” ideas and sources with those sneaky secret boards, as well as share links with friends, family, and even my clients. No matter how busy my week has been, I always fit Pinterest into my schedule. Here are some of my latest pins.
One of the most exciting parts of what I do is witnessing the progression of a project, to keep track of it’s growth on my trusty iPhone camera, and to breathe life to a once dead space. “Currently Working On” will probably be one of my favorite blog categories because I can share the story behind every design. I’m happy to post my first “CWO” blog featuring a project that holds a special place in my heart.
