Q: How would you describe yourself?
A: I would say that I’m pretty easy going and real. I like to be 100% me all the time and love when people feel comfortable enough around me to do the same. I’m hard-working, funny, tall, blonde (hair color, not ditsy:), upfront, and honest. I love to be spontaneous but I’ll always go along with a good plan.
Q: What motivates you to design?
A: I first got into design as a kid because I loved the idea of being able to rescue the old, depressing spaces we so often encounter. As I got older I started paying attention to the people within the spaces and how changing just a few things (lighting, materials, art) caused them to react so differently in such a positive way.
Q: What are some of the things that you feel are Aubrey when you sit down and start to design?
A: I like to think that my designs have a certain elevated simplicity to them. I often describe my designs as beautiful yet practical. Why create a space that can’t help its user function the way they need it to?
Q: What is something that should be outlawed in interior design?
A: I really think we should just give up on this “rules” BS. If the only real reason they’re there is to break them and there’s always a million exceptions anyways, what’s the point?
Q: Is it true that you only own black clothing?
A: I have heard this rumor floating around a bit the last while and the short answer is no, I CHOOSE to only wear black (complimented by more neutrals, of course).
