Alonda Baird-Juhasz combines home accessories with bold new colors and designs in her shop, Designer Dwellings.
"I'm a political science graduate turned color maven. I spent a few years in the corporate world and I decided that it was time to head onto law school. I researched the local colleges and decided that instead I would quit my job and launch a design business. Make sense? Nope! However, it was the right decision.
For years I had offered interior and event theme coordinating services as a creative outlet and it was something I truly wanted to pursue. July of 2013 was the best month ever - I waived goodbye to the corporate world, walked down the aisle with the best husband ever, traveled cross county on our honeymoon road trip adventure and officially launched Designer Dwellings LLC. A few months later I opened my Etsy shop as an extension of my interior decorating business.
It all started at my coffee table with a few bamboo utensils and trivets that I painted in a few fun colors. After a bit, I took over the dining room and now I run out of an actual home office. I always wanted a corner office with a view, I just never expected that it would be on the second floor of my home. Every week, I look for new color palettes and items to expand the Designer Dwellings brand."
