Style Set: Erika of Small Shop Studio

Erika of Small Shop Studio is a jack of all design trades. Starting in studio art and an art history degree, she then went on to study interior design, and after that delved into the graphic design world. She now runs her own brand styling studio, Small Shop Studio.

We we asked Erica about what her community means to her:

"It’s important to me to give back to my community, and be connected with the global community as a whole. Here in my own community, I am on leadership with a women’s volunteer organization that works to benefit children in need. I want to raise my daughter to live outside of her bubble and know the gift of true charity."

Erika paired our ikat runner/scarf with this fun gem lamp in pink from Furbish.

"I’ve been looking to add some color into my home décor, and the blue ikat scarf/runner would be a great accent atop my grandparent’s mid-century modern teak buffet. I’d love to pair it with a more contemporary piece — these faceted lamps in a fun color strike the perfect balance."
