Welcome to my first BLOG! Getting this thing up and running has been a big goal and I’m so happy to have you stop by and check it out.
My name is Adrian and I’m a born and raised Georgia girl. I grew up in Peachtree City- which if you are not familiar, is as an amazing golf cart community often referred to as “The Bubble” by locals. I lived in Atlanta for 4 years while attending college for a degree in Early Childhood Education. I also graduated with an MRS degree 🙂 and married my college sweetheart, Zack, the Fall after we graduated. We have been living in the West Georgia area ever since. We even added a cute little boy, named Leo, to our mix in March 2015. From the upscale suburb to city living and finally to country life– I can honestly say, I have LIVED and LOVED them all!
As a child, I wanted to be a fashion designer and loved sketching my ideas. Later, this love for design transferred to interiors. In 7th grade, my family moved into a new build and my parents actually let me pick out the finishes to my room. My purple carpet went PERFECTLY with the tri-toned purple sponge painted walls!
A few years later, those walls got covered up with some LIME GREEN paint. I also have fun memories of working on our basement. It was an American themed space. We painted large scale checks on the concrete and stenciled silver stars on to navy painted walls. My mother also taught me how to sew fringe onto the bottom of our star-patterned curtain panels. Many memories were made in “The Lindsey Basement”. 🙂
When it came time to choose paint colors for the kitchen, guess who got to lead that project? When my church’s youth room needed an update, guess who took it upon herself to spruce things up? In college, most students dread having to pack up and move in and out each year. Not me! It just meant I got another clean slate for decorating! You know how they say, “hindsight is 20/20”–well, I surely would have to agree when it comes to my interior decorating tastes (thank goodness!!). But, what an incredible childhood to look back on. And MAJOR props to my parents for giving me the chance to experiment with my creativity!!
Now, I live in my very OWN home. I get to live out my dreams of decorating and REDECORATING my house (sorry hubs!!). In the last few years, I have really been able to develop my craft and hone in on my design skills.
It was a combination of this passion for decorating + a faithful nudge from within that led me to launch Stewart Style Interiors. Since November 2016, I’ve had to opportunity to help friends, clients, clients-turned-friends with their decorating needs. It sounds silly, but interior decorating is what keeps me up at night!
For so long, I blew off my passion for interior design as unimportant. I let self-doubt rule my movements. In a world already saturated with interior design inspiration, why would someone want or need my advice? In just the short time that I have put my dreams out there, God has continued to meet me each step of the way. My motto has been to “DO IT AFRAID” and it has truly kept my heart and passion ALIVE!
With anything we do together here at Stewart Style Interiors, I pray you always leave feeling a little happier and more inspired than when you came. Whatever calling you feel in your heart, I encourage you to find the confidence to GO FOR IT too. It can be so so scary, but also so so worth that risk!
Big things are ahead, dear friends!
