Jane Gianarelli from Colorado-United States- was one of the four major winners of: Benjamin Moore Design Contest on olioboard & judged by:Tobi Fairley.

Jane, told about the contest on olioboard: «I have been following Tobi Fairley for the passed five years. Watching her business grow and her designs take off, she has been a role model, my mentor. I have wanted to attend her design camps since she first announced them over a year ago. This was my opportunity to go!I entered a number of boards and had fun every moment.»   & the winner olioboard:Graphic Yellow   Jane started her own business: Snob Interior Design four years ago. Her previous job was as a designer for three years in the local at Drexel Heritage showroom in my hometown. In the last four years she had the opportunity to build a wonderful clientele, some of which I have worked on an ongoing basis for four+ years. Also her work, has included many custom window designs, paint consultations, accessorizing, remodeling and tile projects for residential and commercial.
She says:
«I love tablescapes, two years in a row I participated in a Tablescapes Benefit along with eight other designers.  All the proceeds went to a charity,the benefits raised about $10,000 dollars each year.
I have had my blog for three years now and I look forward to each post.
I love what I do and it’s difficult to stop thinking about design, that’s all I do. In 2013 I will be attending a Tobi Fairley Design Camp and I have signed up for her e-design coaching.  This new year is all about finding a clear vision for my business”

Anita is from Slovenia, lived several years in USA, Colorado, but currently living in The Netherlands. She is happily married and has two young daughters.

After finished her studies she worked in public administration, although it was not for her passion, but more to secure a stable job. While building their our own house and designing the interiors, she found herself enjoying interior designing, being enthusiastic and passionate about it. That led Anita to an idea of changing her career and start working as an interior designer for residential homes. To get more professional knowledge in a new field and decided to start interior design study. At the moment she is on the end of her studies and enjoying every moment of it.
About her passion for interior design Anita says.:
”I am very inspired by anything design related! My inspirations can be objects from the nature, peoples personal interests, well designed objects, many things! I believe that every home should meet the functional and aesthetic needs of the the homeowners, as well as express their personality, no matter the budget. Beautifully designed homes bring the quality of life to a higher level. Everyone should feel good when being at home!  

Living in different countries, following different interior design styles influenced my personal interior style. Designing rooms for others always means a challenge that keeps me enthusiastic and makes my life interesting”.

OlioFriends: Lissa M. Designs


meLissa is an interior design student.

About: My passion for home decor and design started in November 2011 when I started using an application on Facebook called Dreamhouse Designers. Before that I was immersed in the business world. I have a Masters in Commerce and a Post- Grad Diploma in Marketing. Now I cannot imagine living without design in my life. I’m always inspired by the world around me and my designs showcase that. I love working with colours and textures. I would say my style is contemporary but I love vintage, cottage and coastal styles as well. And I don’t mind pushing myself outside of my comfort zone. I’m always up for a design challenge.”  Lissa M. Designs

About Christine:

Christine’s love for interiors came at about the age of ten when she finally got her own room. Rearranging knick-knacks on her bookshelf and creating wall collages with magazine cut-outs was how she kept the space interesting. It wasn’t until years later, after having created a home environment overseas, that Christine realized how important design was.

As an international teacher, she has lived in several countries and each came with a transition time.
About design Christine says: » Making a “home away from home” is how I kept myself grounded and how I felt comfort amidst the changes. I love mixing styles and finding ways to incorporate global pieces picked up from my travels. It’s not surprising that I’ve shifted into this professional realm.»

At the moment, Christine and her husband living in Laos where have doing things that they love: design, writing, yoga, life coaching. They have recently opened the first yoga studio in Luang Prabang called Mekong Yoga.
«It’s definitely a different life, but the journey has been unmistakably memorable.»

Thank you Christine!

Taunnie gives to us a description about her:

“ I am an interior design student. I am not in college for the first time, that was twenty years ago. I returned to school because I have come to the realization that I can’t not decorate. I have also come to the realization that even though I am on my fourth project house with plenty of pit stops along the way for family and friends homes, I want and need to learn more.
I have loved decorating since I was a little girl. I have very fond memories of helping my Mom pick paint colors, wallpaper and carpet when she got the urge to redecorate. Now my daughter likes to help me when I get the urge to redecorate, which is all the time. My family doesn’t even blink anymore when they come home and find some of the living room furniture in the family room, some of the dinning room furniture in my bedroom. Or find something repainted. I have changed the paint in the family room so many times, even I have lost track. I have painted furniture, cabinets, light fixtures, and counter-tops, you name it. Nothing is safe. I also love to shop for fabric and make pillows, drapes, and slip covers.
I wanted to start this blog to share some tips I’ve learned in the last twenty years. Mostly I would like to share ideas and projects with people whose eyes don’t roll or glaze over when I start talking design.
So, why «Mingle Elements»? I have eclectic tastes. I have always had others hand-me-downs and I love to shop for new stuff. I shop consignment shops antique shops, garage sales, Target, Ikea, Home Goods my Mom’s basement, anywhere I think I can uncover my next treasure . I think when it comes to decorating anything goes, old with new, shiny with rough, kitschy with elegant.

My feeling is when you surround yourself with things you love and that make you happy then that’s what makes your home your favorite place to be.”

Thank you Taunnie.!
