Featured Designer: Emily Johnston

In this business we have the great pleasure of meeting some of the best architects and interior designers in the world. They can also be some of the nicest and most inspiring people. I think that’s because they love what they do and they truly see what they do as a way of creating a better environment for all of us to live in.

We are always the most excited when we meet an up and coming designer. Emily Johnston of E J Interiors is one of those designers. Emily has a bachelors degree in Interior Design from the University of Oklahoma. She has experience in all aspects of interior design including design, space planning, product and art selection, and installation.

Emily lives in Dallas and has a passion for design- especially for fabrics! She loves finding inexpensive ways to decorate. One of her favorite activities is to find hidden treasures at resale shops and refinish them into something fabulous!

We believe that concept boards can tell you a great deal about a designers vision and knowledge. Here are some of Emily’s.

We discovered Emily through her blog Dear Designer. That places Emily in two of our blog categories; Featured Designer and Favorite Blogs. The sub text on the header at Dear Designer is: Stylish and affordable finds that won’t break the bank. So expect to visit often as a great source of inspiration and most importantly…. Shopping Tips!

Please visit the web site and blog to see for yourself why we here at Swank will be keeping an eye on her.
