10 Things about Taya

We want to shout it from the rooftops how PUMPED we are to welcome our new design assistant, Taya, to the Alexis Bednyak Design team.

We asked her to tell our readers a little bit about herself by taking the cue from Elle Decor's "10 Things." So here are the things in life Taya says she cannot live without! 

Hope you all have the pleasure of working with her in the near future!

1//Silver mint julep cups filled with pink peonies when they’re in season.

2//Coffee table design books like Campion Platt's book Made to Order and Hue by Kelly Wearstler.

3//My two pugs Lyla and Ivy. They are the funniest little fur beings on the planet -- always making me laugh.

4//Fun prints and patterns for wallpapers.

5//Pilates or Barre class with my girlfriends and the Lorna Jane Active Planner to keep me motivated.

6//Fun bowls to throw jewelry in at the end of the day.

7//Clusters of frames.  Obsessed with how easily they make a house into a home.

8//All things Australia. I love Belle Australia magazine and constantly check Instagram for Aussie inspiration.
