This article was an amazing surprise written by Hadley Keller, Senior Editor at House Beautiful. In Hadley’s own words, “House Beautiful has rounded up 29 designers making history today (one for each day of the month, on a leap year, since we like to round up). Though these creatives run the gamut of style, they have one important thing in common: These are names you want to know.” Not only is the article extremely clever, it nailed the style, personality, trajectory of each creative.
Hadley’s words on me?
“It’s telling that Smith’s Instagram bio refers to herself as an “eclectic human”—after graduating from the New York School of Interior Design, Smith set about creating a style that isn’t easy to pin down. Smith is also an active member of the Black Interior Designers Network, for whom she helped organize a sold-out panel at her alma mater this winter.”
And I’m in great company with the likes of Sheila Bridges, Joy Moyler, Bailey Li, Saudah Saleem, Kesha Franklin, Malene Barnett, and Keia McSwain. Check out the full article here to see the amazing round up of Black creatives.
