Fresh Faces for Eclectic Spaces: Meet Lindsey Arambula, one of our four, featured up-and-coming interior designers in the Scottsdale area who may have varying styles, but all have one thing in common — their passion for design.
Q. When did you start designing?
A. My design career started when I was a senior in high school working for Kaiser Tile in its retail tile showroom.
Q. Why did you decide to pursue interior designing as a career?
A. I knew at a young age I wanted to pursue a career in a field that would always allow me to exhibit my creative nature. From working my first job in the design field to studying design principles and theory at Arizona State University (ASU), it became even more apparent how much I enjoyed taking an empty canvas and bringing it to life.
Q. How would you describe your work or style? Does it have a unique look or feel?
A. I would describe my style as rustic modern with a touch of eclectic and shabby chic. I try to make all of my designs have a fresh, welcoming feel.
Q. Where do you draw your inspiration?
A. I draw my inspiration from fabrics. A certain color or pattern can lead you to an outstanding final product.
Q. What’s one tip to readers who plan to redesign their room/home?
A. When redesigning a room or home, bring into the space items you love; but similarly, bring in at least one fresh, new feel. This may take the shape of a flooring material that is new to the market, an edgy fabric or furniture piece.
Q. What are your top three favorite, local store/boutiques to shop for items?
Q. Your most memorable project?
A. As a senior in college, we were tasked with designing a space but given the latitude to select anything we wanted. Looking for a challenge, I opted to create and design a spa. The space I created served the purpose of providing a full-service menu of spa treatments as well hair and nail styling. In order to bring to life the meditative quality of the spa, I elected to use a soft color palate and distressed wood to symbolize the theme of renewal. Also, I used stainless steel subway tiles to add a modern touch. In designing this space, I feel like my initial voice and vision really came through.
