Local Business Series: Alluring Designs Chicago
Hey April! We are so excited to chat with you today. Can you start by telling everyone who you are followed by introducing the members of your team?
Thank you for having us! I am April Gandy, owner and Principal Designer of Alluring Designs Chicago. We are a full-service interior design firm that offers interior design services for residential interiors. We specialize in kitchens, baths and home decorating. Our team includes my close family friend Jennifer Anderson, who is one of our Designers and my mother, Valerie Steward, who is our Lead Designer.
I couldn’t help but notice that you are a team of women and I love it! I am especially proud to acknowledge and celebrate your success shortly after international women’s day! So tell me what makes this team of women dynamic?
That is awesome! What do you feel the advantages of having a strong team are?
Having a strong team allows us flexibility to depend on each other when we need to. We know that between the three of us we will get through anything. Having a strong team also means we speak up when things don’t sound right. When we are working with vendors or trades, we will always be an advocate for the best interest of our client.
I love that! Since coming together what has been some of your proudest accomplishments?
Ok let’s shift gears a little bit. I know first hand that entrepreneurship is not easy. Many of us have had to to push through tough times at some point in our careers. Has there been any obstacles that you’ve had to overcome as a team?
Yes we are all trying to deal with this. The best advice I’ve been telling myself and others is to use this time to improve your craft. This pandemic will not last forever and we need to be ready to soar when it’s over. It’s also important to keep positive people around you. It sounds like you have that in your team. What advice would you give others who are looking to form a dynamic team but don’t know where to start?
I totally agree. Now here’s one of my favorite questions to ask. Out of the many interior design companies in Chicago, why should someone looking for these types of services choose Alluring Designs?
Awesome, before I let you go you gotta give us a Lookclusive! What can we expect from Alluring Designs Chicago this year?
That all sounds great April! Thank you for allowing us to get to know more about Alluring Designs Chicago. It has been such a pleasure.
