A Conversation with Rachel Moriarty

How do you overcome FOMO when you have to say “no” to new opportunities that come your way? How do you develop your self-concept, when you were accustomed to working in a strict, corporate environment before becoming a designer? What should you expect when going to trade show events, like High Point Market?

In this episode, Rebecca and Shaun speak with Rachel Moriarty of Rachel Moriarty Interiors, to discuss:

  • The difficulties in saying “no” to cool opportunities that present themselves
  • Being like a diamond and performing well under pressure
  • A.I. renderings and how crazy realistic they look
  • Rachel’s unique job history before becoming an interior designer
  • Feeling exhausted after presentations and speeches
  • Creating and fostering relationships with others in the industry
  • Our experiences with the One Room Challenge
  • Appreciating the perspectives of designers with different cultural and regional backgrounds
  • High Point Market – It is huge and intimidating, but so worth it
