I was recently introduced to the wonderful custom fabric and pillow line by Kari Fisher. She is so unique. I am fully obsessed with the Shiva print in orange and I adore the pillows with pom poms.  I hope you enjoy getting to know Kari and her designs.

What is your training?

I have a Masters in Interior Design from Florida State University. I also studied for a year at the New York School of Interior Design.

 

What inspires you and your designs?

My inspiration can come from almost anywhere, I’m always looking. As Diana Vreeland said, “The eye has to travel.” A lot of my inspiration does come from the past…studying printing techniques, looking at historical patterns and forms.

What is your favorite piece?

Shiva navy on celadon

I love my Shiva “eye” print.

How has the south influenced your work?

I think my work is influenced by both the timeless design and the casual attitude of the south. My pillows are meant to be laid on, squished, fluffed, and wear well over time.

What is your favorite restaurant in Atlanta?

empire state south

Empire State South…the ambiance & design is just as fabulous as the food.

What is your favorite cocktail?

Rhubarb-cocktail

A cold glass of prosecco with orange bitters

How do you balance personal life and work?

I don’t think I’ve achieved that yet while I’m still working out of my home and can work around the clock. I’m working on moving my studio out of my house to a separate space I can lock up and turn the lights off at the end of the day.

Dream trip? 

cinque_terre_vernazza

At least a month of eating & drinking my way along the Mediterranean coast

Dream commission?

A job that would require me to eat & drink my way along the Mediterranean coast

Your favorite hostess gift?

pink eye on white linen

I love making a personalized or monogram pillow.

Who is your style icon? 

Emmanuelle-Alt

Emmanuelle Alt, the editor-in-chief at Vogue Paris

Your favorite up and coming artist/designer?

I also love the paintings of Jules Cozine

and the creations of Paper-Cut-Project

What is your most treasured possession?

baxter

I don’t know if it’s right to call my dog, Baxter, a possession, but I treasure him the most

What are you reading?

Usually an Elle Decor or House Beautiful. I usually pick up some knitting to keep my hands busy rather than read a book.

What are you listening to?
