Designer Spotlight – Erin Simmons

Oct 19, 2017 | Designer Spotlight, KSA Interiors

KSA’s wish came true as we welcome the return of Erin Simmons to our team! We have often referred to her as “the App”, as she has always been our “go to” and endless resource for information and solutions. Erin has kept herself busy since her previous time with KSA. Not only has she achieved professional success leading MOI’s Project Management team as a Senior Associate, she has also tied the knot with Brandon, became the ASID Virginia Chapter President, and now is dog mama to two pug cuties! We look forward to enjoying her awesome sense of humor again and benefiting from her leadership within our organization.

Frank Lloyd Wright. I studied him intensely in design school and was mesmerized studying his floor plans & views on integrating one’s lifestyle into their space.

Traveling to Europe for a summer with other Interior Design and Industrial Design students. We were able to not only visit historical sites and buildings, but visit design studios across Europe.

A cruise ship! Literally every type of space you could imagine and chance to be a bit over-the-top!
