In celebration of Women’s History Month, let’s meet our Creative Director, Evie Larson, the mastermind behind so many of our favorite designs.
Be You. The World Will Adjust.
Inspiring woman you look up to and why:
On a personal level — Aunt Nancy Haggard
She has been and continues to be my north star. A go-getter, a high achiever herself, she’s taught me how to strive for the best I can be in my personal and professional life. She always offers the best motherhood and career advice too. And she’s also the one who sets me straight when I need a reality check!
A fellow artist — Mishou Sanchez
Mishou is one of my absolute favorite friends. She’s also an artist and designer I really admire. She constantly reminds me not to be afraid of color. Mishou has been the spark, the inspiration behind my home decor, and one I consult with on projects. Her design style is strong, bold and aggressive (in an exciting and positive way, of course!). I also admire her honesty, her individuality, for she is truly uniquely herself and her charisma and laughter are infectious!
Who I Admire from afar — Michelle Obama
Regardless of politics, this is an undeniably impactful woman for many, and definitely for me! I read and find inspiration in her quotes when feeling challenged, when facing adversity in my professional life. I admire her confidence, her composure and how she carefully speaks her mind while not being afraid of what people think.
Words of advice:
It ties into my favorite quote above. My advice — be true to who you are. Love and accept yourself, truly and deeply.
Best advice I ever received:
In my design career – “Never ask for project feedback on a Friday afternoon” ha!
In motherhood – “Your kid will take after you.” That is so true! Your kiddo is ALWAYS watching like a hawk, so lead by example.
