This week, we have the sweet Traci Brann of Traci B Designs sharing her story. She is based out of St. George, UT and provides exceptional Interior Design services to her surround areas. Read Traci’s story in her own words below!
The seed of design was unintentionally planted in me at a young age. Both of my parents were teachers but there were always Architectural Digest magazines lying around, my parents were always drawing up floor plans for dream homes and they would drag me and my siblings to model homes for entertainment. Little did I know how this all would influence my choice in profession.
I went to college, got married and had 3 amazing sons. I did the best with what little we had to decorate our home. Soon I had friends, family members and neighbors hitting me up for help in their homes. Being a designer had never really crossed my mind up to this point. I was raising my kids.
As my boys got a little older I slowly ventured out. I worked for a furniture company and got certified to do design.
I remember when I first started designing full time I came across a few other designers. I couldn’t believe it when they went on about how they were only able to handle it for a while because it was so life consuming. It didn’t take long until my head was spinning, I was losing sleep and I found myself working almost 24/7. After a couple mini melt downs and putting on the breaks to revamp my structure for a minute- I’m happy to announce I am still trying to get it completely figured out . Ha! I get better every year.
I am continually growing as a designer. I love a space challenge. I love creating a little of the unexpected. In each project I love to add something that gets the “I would have never thought to do that” reaction.
I want to do it all. I want the wild clients that will let me do brave and wonderful things and I also love a client who wants the beautiful, comfortable and cozy family home.
I genuinely can say the best part of my job has been making a connection with my clients. I love getting to know them on a personal level and being able to infuse their personal details into their space. I love transforming the client’s space into something they can be proud of and love being in.
I am incredibly grateful to get to do what I love. I also feel blessed to have met some pretty amazing people along the way. I can’t wait to see what new and exciting projects await me in the future.
