For the past few months, I have been working on a project that I'm really excited to share with you today. It started out as a search for an answer to a question, but has turned into a quest. I began with the idea to collect the names of African American Interior Designers and post them here as a resource for those seeking to hire, support, and celebrate those working in the field.
It was important for me to create a list of designers capable of handling design projects of all sizes and scope. I collected names from design showroom staff from all around the country. That proved to be a great jumping off point. Many vendors were happy to join in the celebration and put forth
their favorite clients for consideration.
I also took recommendations from realtors, home builders, and design bloggers. Anyone who could contribute to the list of names that I share with you today. In the end, I turned all my findings over to a panel who read tons of bios and reviewed countless images.
I am proud of the names that are on the list. Some you've heard of. Many you likely have not.
It's a very talented bunch. So join me in celebrating...
