This group helps homemakers, interior designers, business professionals and others create unique and naturally beautiful environments to live, work, and play in.
Its a great group to join if you're looking for practical insights, information, advice and support, and if you want to socialize and network with like-minded individuals. I'm Gloria Jaroff, AIA. I'm an author, lecturer, East Coast licensed architect and interior designer.
My work with Walt Disney Imagineering on theme parks in Tokyo, Paris and California Adventure, taught me to apply storytelling techniques in creating emotionally evocative and meaningful environments.
Through 50+ years of design I have consulted with private clients, corporations, property managers at a major banking institutions and architectural review boards for various communities. I've worked with Walt Disney Imagineering to design theme parks, Wells Fargo Property Management to renovate banks and corporate centers, Ellerbe Becket for various architectural projects, and leading celebrities to create beautiful/functional home and work environments.
The color principles I use not only simplify the selection of paint colors and palettes for residential or business interiors, but can also be applied to the design of a building, a painting, a craft, or by anyone striving to humanize a space, enrich our lives or feed our souls by reconnecting to the essence of Nature in a meaningful way.
