ABOUT DEBBIE

 

Debbie Ahrens is the principal designer and owner of Ahrens Designs, based in Alexandria, Louisiana.

 

With ten plus years of experience in design and extensive travel under her belt, Debbie brings an eclectic design eye and a knack for discovering extraordinary pieces. By mixing touches of vintage antebellum style with both modern and natural selections, Debbie's designs are well-balanced, while never losing touch of the client’s individual style and personality. She sticks to her design philosophy that “design, should be comfortable, inviting and cool, but most importantly, design should describe who you are”. When she’s not creating amazing designs, Debbie spends her time with her amazingly fun and full of life family and husband Dan.

FAVORITE WAY TO START THE DAY

A tall glass of ice cold water. Then the coffee

 

FAVORITE DESIGN ELEMENT

Houseplants! I put them in every room. But I’m OBSESSED with lamps. Put ‘em everywhere

 

FAVORITE DESIGN STYLE

I don’t think I have a favorite. I don’t think I could do this job effectively if I did. I’ve got to be flexible.

 

COLLEGE MAJOR

Interior Design at Bauder Fashion College

 

GUILTY PLEASURE?

I have several, but if I have to choose one, salted caramel chocolates! Yummo!

 

WHAT MADE YOU WANT TO WORK IN THIS INDUSTRY?

 I chose this career because it sounded fun! And I really do grow to love it more and more every day.

 

FAVORITE AFTRENOON PICK-ME-UP?

 I love to go on long walks. The colors of nature and looking at other houses really inspires me and the fresh air invigorates me.

 

3 THINGS YOU CANT LIVE WITHOUT

My super amazing bobby pins, my rose-scented room spray, and (as of Christmas) my gold monogrammed Swell bottle!

 

CLAIRE CHARRIER

 

FAVORITE WAY TO START THE DAY

All of the coffee.

 

FAVORITE DESIGN ELEMENT

 I enjoy pale colors and clean lines

 

FAVORITE DESIGN STYLE

Contemporary and girly, but I love vintage items and antiques mixed in.

 

COLLEGE MAJOR

Bachelors of Communications and Mass Media at Louisiana State University of Alexandria.

 

GUILTY PLEASURE?

 Candy, cake, basically anything sweet.

 

WHAT MADE YOU WANT TO WORK IN THIS INDUSTRY?

I love design, crafts, creativity, decor, and everything like that. I wanted to be a designer when I was a kid, but I never thought I’d get there because I didn’t grow up with the connections you need to have in order to work in this industry. Because of that, I studied communications in college.

 

FAVORITE AFTERNOON PICK-ME-UP?

One Word: Coffee


3 THINGS YOU CANT LIVE WITHOUT

Coffee (you knew that was coming), gemstones (you should see my jewelry), and I just LOVE makeup!
