Valentine’s Day is on its way and we intend to celebrate that. So, we decided to present you with 10 power couples of interiors that have the ability to balance life and love. Discover them all here!
Carrier and Company Interiors
Every single couple we’re going to talk about here can balance their life and love because of their work, creating even stronger bonds between them. The first power design couple is Jesse Carrier and Mara Miller, principals of Carrier and Company Interiors. Mara believes that their knowledge regarding their own personalities and professional skills means that they can trust each other and that immediately reflects on their work together. Jesse says that “What is unique, challenging, and rewarding about life/work relationships is the level of intimacy. While there is little absence to make hearts grow fonder, there is a deep and unbreakable sense of trust in working with a life partner.”
Aero Studios and Dan Fink Studio
Thomas O’Brien and Dan Fink are the owners of Aero Studios and Dan Fink Studio. According to Dan, he thinks is a true pleasure in life when you have someone to look and learn. “History is important to us, and carrying forward traditions is at the heart of both our life and work.”
Gabriel Hendifar and Jeremy Anderson are the founders of Apparatus and they say they are very lucky to run projects together. They say that the main key to balancing their work life and their relationship as a couple is that they are honest. Honest about what they want as individuals and what fulfills them. They can easily separate their experiences together and as independent creative minds.
Nate Berkus Interiors and Jeremiah Brent Design
Nate Berkus and Jeremiah Brent needed to be present in this power design couples list because they are amazing together. Berkus says that “The great thing about working with Jeremiah is how much I appreciate his eye and point of view. As a designer and a parent.”
Jeanine Hays and Bryan Mason are the founders of AphroChic and they agree that they are a powerful couple, in work and in love. Jeanine says that “In our partnership, we don’t make a distinction. There really isn’t a ‘work-life vs. personal life’ dichotomy. It’s all just life.” His partner Bryan states that “There isn’t really much of a line between our work lives and our personal lives. That may not sound like balance, but that ‘balance of no balance is one of my favorite things. We naturally collaborate on everything, which makes it all very easy and a lot of fun.”
Roman and Williams
Now, we are talking about Robin Standefer and Stephen Alesch, the founders of Roman and Williams. Stephen feels that they have a great sense of companionship. On the other hand, Robin believes that “It’s all or nothing for things to work with us—there are no half steps or dragging one another along against their will—no sulking.”
Anishka Clarke and Niya Bascom are a strong and powerful couple because they balance each other out. When one is weak, the other is strong, and vice-versa. Anishka says that “It’s really cool to work with someone who you have a lot of respect for, who tends to see things the same way you do and always has your back. But it’s great to take time for self, to rejuvenate individually so that we can build a stronger partnership.”
Neri & Hu
Rossana Hu, about her partner Lyndon Neri, “Since our student days, life is work and work is life, and that became the foundation of our relationship and the only way it seems that this collaboration has managed to thrive.”
Natalie Shirinian and Elizabeth Baudouin are the founders and partners of NES Creative. According to Natalie, when they work together they work very well because they allow their unique and individual strengths to shine. “… communication is key and operating from a place of we are always a team. We find the balance in making sure over everything the relationship comes first.”
Scholten & Baijings
Stefan Scholten and Carole Baijings end our list of power design couples. They are the founders of Scholten & Baijings and they couldn’t be more proud of their work together. They have a strong combination of feminine and masculine intuition and creativity, that makes all the difference in their male-female team.
