Friday Five: May 17, 2018

Happy Friday bloggers! After moving in a new home at the beginning of January with my best friend, we didn’t get the chance to play around with our front porch. With the weather FINALLY warming up, we decided to dress it up and make up look all cute. Being inspired by so many bloggers and endless amounts of pinning on Pinterest, I wanted to tie up this Friday’s round up post on some of our favorite Interior Designers and what you can do for your home, this summer season!

Cedar and Rush: Nicole, founder of Cedar and Rush, builds captivating narratives through visual media and story telling. She is well versed in marketing and social influence as CEO of her social media company. Her expertise and refined style gives a dynamic viewpoint that sparks her followers to try something new and embrace a fresh way of thinking.

Centered by Design:  Claire Staszak is a Chicago-based interior designer known for her holistic design process that combines a refined aesthetic with wellness principles. In addition to her interior design training, Claire draws on her years of experience as a yoga and meditation instructor to gently guide her clients through the process of uncovering or refining their own unique style, tailoring the experience to their home and lifestyle.

Alaina has moved A LOT since she graduated college, with that being said she has had a lot of experience in interior design and being a decorating pro.
