I was always the artsy kid in school, the one who painted, drew up blueprints for her dream house when she was twelve and made her own jewelry when she couldn't find the perfect piece in a store. My passion for art & design reignited in 2009 when I was planning my own wedding and become a wedding blogger. In the days before Pinterest existed, I felt the need to create content to help curate ides for my own big day. My party planning design work quickly gained national recognition, including print and online publications such as The Knot and Kara's Party Ideas. Through my wedding design work, I realized that my artistic abilities translate well to designing environments to create immersive art my clients can live in. Interior and event design creates an essential backdrop that surrounds us when we are entertaining, sharing special moments and connecting with loved ones.
My blog morphed into an interior design creative outlet for me over the years after buying our fixer upper classic New England Colonial. With a love for interior magazines, and a slew of fabric and paint swatches - I found myself on a mission to make my own home beautiful - one room at a time. After taking on our biggest design project (the dreaded kitchen renovation), I was ready to take on a new challenge. Erin Walsh Design was founded in 2017 as a way to share my design lessons with others. Then one day I started the podcast, and the whole business took off! Similarly to art chosen for a room's walls, interior design is extraordinarily important to improve and enrich our moods, motivations and memories. What surrounds us has a tremendous impact on how we feel and perceive the world. My mission is to create environments that evoke the behaviors, feelings and lifestyles my clients want to achieve.
Chinoiserie, outdoor living, bright colors and the easy-going lifestyle of the beach have deeply influenced my design aesthetic. I also love neutrals, rustic elements and a dash of bright colored Palm Beach inspiration in my designs. This combination helps me to design for a variety of design styles and tastes.
