Emily enjoys weaving elements of surprise into her designs, beautifully crafting thoughtful interiors that highlight the spirit of place. She thrives on discovering new materials and products, constantly looking for inventive ways to layer in texture, color and graphics to create dynamic spaces.
She joined WRNS Studio in 2020 with a strong arts and design background. She uses her breadth of experience in high-end-residential and visual merchandising to come up with sophisticated solutions for commercial projects. A versatile designer, Emily is as comfortable space planning as she is curating fabric, furniture and fixtures for executive suites, in-house restaurants, and lounges. Whether she’s hand-sketching, computer-rendering or putting together design concepts and presentation packets, she approaches projects with a sense of style rarely seen in large-scale projects.
A native Californian, Emily received her Bachelor of Arts in Interior Design from California College of the Arts and her Associates of Arts in Visual Communications from FIDM San Francisco. When she’s not fueling her creative juices by crafting and sewing, she’s taking to the outdoors, skiing, motocross racing or hiking with her family dog. With a penchant for travel, Emily tries to schedule one big trip a year, visiting far off places like Thailand and Turkey, immersing herself into different cultures and design aesthetics.
