MEET Jodi Eve Maricich, Design Pixie
... in horror: "What if every house were the same?!"
It's simple. Jodi believes every person is unique and her desire is to collaborate to design spaces that reflect the individual wishes and needs of her clients…with a little pixie spin.
Jodi's Advice Column:
Pour whimsy into your foundation.
A sofa should be tasty, not tasteful.
The right chandelier illuminates a room with joy.
A rug should make your feet want to dance.
Allow the color of your front door to beckon, "come in!"
Children should be seen and heard in home decor.
Panache tastes good with pancakes.
Good lighting is better than a facelift.
Style is in you ... dig it!
A fabulous shower will inspire song.
Every seat should be a "loveseat."
Let your home expose your soul.
Good design is a positive experience.
From directing the placement of furniture in her family homes as a small child to pursuing a Master's in Feng Shui as an adult, designing with balance and harmony has been Jodi's lifelong passion.
