Get to Know the Team: Karla

Name - Karla Taylor
Role at Accent Decor – Customer Support
How long have you been a part of the Accent Décor team? 2 years, 6 months

Where do you look for inspiration? I find inspiration in everything! Color, texture, nature, art, architecture, photography, fashion, our amazing products, Pinterest =) I am a very visual person and find creative inspiration all around me. Texture and color are the top two things I look for in inspiring images and designs.
Where is your dream vacation destination? I would love to visit Italy and Scotland, where my and my husband’s families are from. The architecture of Italy has always inspired me and the landscapes of Scotland look beyond breathtaking!
What are your 3 favorite pins from this week? Since I am an addict, it is VERY difficult to just pick a few, but if I must, they will have to be:

Styling by Ginny Branch, florals by Amy Osaba, products from Accent Decor (Pinned from Accent Décor)
The above image is from our Great Gatsby themed AD photoshoot, florals by Amy Osaba, styled by Ginny Branch. This image is the epitome of my style-vintage glam with modern touches of elegance.

Accent Décor Spotting on Traditional Home. Love the mix of the mercury glass items and that vintage mirror…and OH that chandelier in the reflection!

Sequin Table Cloth. For the head table or cake table. (Pinned from stylemepretty.com)
Dazzle and Dolce are stunningly sparkly atop this sequined tablecloth - what I would do for this tablecloth! Such a lovely, modern tablescape!
What is your current favorite Accent Décor product? I love the Parsons Collection, small and simple, yet very texturized to add the interest and uniqueness that Accent Décor’s products always have. I am also loving the Carraway Collection - so elegant and classy, vintage with the mercury finish, yet still modern because of the shapes and GOLD! Our customers cannot get enough of these either!

Do you have any hidden talents? I am not so sure that they are hidden, but I have a passion for floral design and last year was certified as a Master Designer. I love assisting with photo shoots and showroom setup here for Accent Décor, so you have seen little bits and pieces of my hidden talent (and finger prints) all over the showrooms.

What do you love most about what you do? I love helping customers come up with the perfect products to set the scene for a themed event. My dream call is when a customer says, “My bride’s theme is –fill in the blank-, what can I use?!” I also thoroughly enjoy working on our orders for large shows, conventions and charity galas where Accent Décor loves to show off our new products. And who wouldn’t love assisting the amazing designers we work with and getting a sneak peak at the new line before anyone else on the photoshoots?!

What is your favorite design trend right now? I am loving the mix of old and new, modern and vintage. The juxtaposition of a mix like burlap and lace adds such interest and texture to design, whether it be floral, event or home décor. I am also obsessed with GOLD! I am so glad that is has made such a strong comeback in every aspect of design.
