Unlocking the Artist Celebrity interior designer Erinn Valencich share her secrets to great design, success, and more Words by Andrea Gallego-Patrick Photo credit: John Russo Renowned luxury interior designer-to- the-stars, Erinn Valencich has appeared on NBC's American Dream Builders, The View, several HGTV shows, Access Hollywood and E! She's a fine furniture designer, residential developer, author, sought-after media personality, and serial entrepreneur, who attributes her success to hard work and not being afraid to fail. "You don't get anywhere if you don't try, if you don't risk getting out of your comfort zone and putting it on the line. I always grew up with this idea of why not me? If other people can do cool things, I can too! I like to just jump in and figure it out as I go. I think that's also what attracts me to being an entrepreneur, the challenge of it. To create is really exciting. I think that willingness to not quit when the going gets tough is really the only things that makes people successful. Diligence is the main key to success. If it's not working, suggest a strategy before throwing in the towel." The California native is an inspiring artist whose Los Angeles-based design firm, Erinn V. Design Group, is known for creating interiors that redefine casual elegance with a modern, sophis- ticated touch. If you desire a unique, masterfully designed project, Erinn is THE designer to call. Celebrities like Ashton Kutcher, Jennifer Love Hewitt, Mischa Barton, Jaime Pressly, and Antonio Sabato, Jr. have all enlisted Erinn's coveted expertise. "I've done several houses with Jaime Pressly. She's very fun to work with. She loves home decor and style and doing her place. Most recently, I've worked with Dorit Kemsley [The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills]. I loved working with her and her husband. They have a very cool, but very glamorous rock 'n' roll vibe. I think that's one of my favorite projects," says Erinn.
