(my bosses... doug and gene meyer!)
i first discovered doug and gene's work last may and i immediately emailed them expressing how badly i wanted to work for them. it took a few months for us to officially meet one another but after our meeting i became their new employee!
i was so ecstatic to have the opportunity to work for such amazing designers!!
(a little background on the two)
doug and gene are two fabulous brothers from good ole ken-tuck-ey!
i love this picture of them as wee little tots
doug (the interior designer) and gene (the fashion designer) "merged in 2004 and opened their design studio after a lifetime of personal and professional admiration inspired them to work together. since then the brothers joined creative forces for a unique range of products from fabrics to rugs, furniture, accessories, as well as fashion and interior design projects.
doug and gene’s designs are based on a shared logic, then peppered with historical references from the 18th century to modern times: subtle and classic forms mixed with bold and graphic shapes, layers of elegance and detail augmented by the brothers love of unexpected color and textural combinations. the doug and gene meyer brand helps clients realize their full potential and fulfill their wildest dreams with inspired, beautiful and timely design". -from their site

i love the neon details!
i get a history lesson on something fabulous in art and design from these two at least once a day, they are constantly taking me back in time and explaining all the wonderful details about the creative world.
a day doesn't go by at work where we aren't laughing, calling each other nicknames or cracking jokes, it is such a great creative environment to be in, i love it so much.
they have quickly become two of my favorite people!
i respect them so much and admire them for all their creativeness and knowledge.
i love learning and working for them, i consider myself a lucky girl each day i leave work!

sneaking a quick picture of me and doug working.
see the happy colorful office? me gusta mucho!
this is sadly the only picture i have of the three of us at the jan kath opening in the
february issue of architectural digest germany.
i am so loving doug and gene and loving working for color lovers!
p.s. i also love that if i bring cheetos or pop tarts to work they stop and make me read the nutritional label
on back so i can realize how bad it is for me.
keep up with doug and gene
