… and I love the ocean. Because I was born and raised right across one, every single morning of my childhood began with the sights, sounds and calming waves of the Indian Ocean. I now live in Atlanta, GA with my sweet little family, but I sorely miss living by the water. This ocean-hearted girl is often nostalgic in the city of concrete. But sometimes in the waves of change, we find our true direction. One of my all-time favorite quotes.
Ever since I was about ten years old and watched my parents’ beautiful seaside apartment in Bombay, India get re-designed, I knew I wanted to be an interior designer. And even though everyone thought it was a childish dream that would go away, that dream stayed with me. I happily made it through design school and worked in the industry for almost a decade. Five of those years in the Interior Design team at IKEA Atlanta. In addition to adding flair to the store, it also entailed designing and planning layouts for other IKEA stores across the country.
But something else happened in those years, I had discovered a love for entertaining. AND I realized I had a burning passion to really OWN something. I wanted to lead a creative business that really had a heart of its own.
IDEA! event + style was born of that realization. I decided to combine my years of design experience, my love for entertaining and my passion for business. I am the heart and soul behind the IDEA! brand and all of its design ventures. I live and breathe IDEA! and after my family, I put everything into this passion of mine. I have enjoyed watching it grow almost as much as I have enjoyed watching my sweet babies grow!
My small business to me means no limits on my potential. It’s about creating something I can be proud of every single day and that others will love and enjoy. It’s about doing the work that I’m so passionate about. It’s about attending my kids’ school parties and being home to cook dinner. It’s about celebrating milestones, creating memories, loving on people, having fun and cultivating a life that my family and I can enjoy together. My life and my business are completely intertwined in one big, pretty and sometimes messy bow, and I wouldn’t have it any other way. This is MY why!
