Design is in my genes, literally. My mom is a Fashion and Interior Design Professor. I was the girl that grew up with the homemade everything! - pants, dresses, costumes, purses, etc. Weekends were spent antiquing and furniture shopping. In college I majored in Fashion and Interior Merchandising then moved outside D.C. to pursue a career in fashion. Since then so much has happened. I even visited Paris to saturate myself in the textile trade culture.
My dream job led me to work at a design showroom for high end firms. But, If I was to be honest I found myself a little burned out with working behind the scenes and desired a more hands on approach with clients.
After working in the design field I faced my greatest challenge; integrating my newly married husband's beloved and extremely red couch into something beautiful, well at least workable. Forged from the sparks of fire from this challenge - Motif Pillows began. Using every ounce of experience I could muster I designed, painted, antiqued, and thrift shopped our way into our first sheik apartment. Creating curtains, fashioning headboards, painting and sanding cabinets, and of course designing pillows.
**In the beginnings of our marriage I found my calling - creating pillows. Sharing my passion and joy of finding the often unique fabric and pillow that creates a 'wow' factor for when you host friends and family! I work tirelessly to take all my design experience and connections create the perfect motif pillow for you. Although our store has classics, favorites, and fabric staples, what sets us apart is ‘the unique!,’
