Hello World! Welcome to Find The Pretty. My name is Erin Hofer-Shall, by training I’m an Interior Designer. I have spent most of my career in Boston working in the world of Commercial and Hospitality Design. Recently my husband and I made the leap and moved from Boston, with a quick year stop in Portland Maine, all the way across the country to the San Francisco Bay Area. During that time we added two little boys to our lives and I’m now enjoying the wonderful world of being a Mom to twins and still loving and wanting to share the things in life that I find inspirational and pretty.
I’m the type of person whose mind is constantly running and I typically have a number of design and organizational projects in the works for myself. I thought it would be fun to share my perspective on design, organizing, fashion, food, reading… the things in life that have captured my attention that I would like to share with the world.
My hope is that this blog will bring you creative ideas on how to find the pretty in your every day life. What I’ve come to understand is that not everyone has the budget, time or energy to completely gut and redesign their space, or the time and energy to devote to reworking the jumble of their daily lives or mind. You would be amazed at what a little organization, a fresh coat of paint and how a few new design elements can transform a space! Not to mention what a good book, a great yoga class… or a decadent pastry can do to clear the mind.
So please stop in, stay awhile and hopefully find something that you think is Pretty!
