Meet Rebecca and Shannon of Fresh Chick Design Studio!

As party stylists, interior designers, and graphic designers, the fabulous ladies of Fresh Chick Design Studio really do it all! Rebecca Propes and Shannon Helliker started out as interior designers but decided they couldn’t let their creativity stop there and quickly realized how much they enjoyed designing graphics and invites for parties and even creating the actual party decor. They give new meaning to the term “one stop shop”! From baby showers to nursery design, check out some of their gorgeous events and find out what some of their most memorable designs are. Enjoy and be inspired!

What inspired you to become designers and party stylists and ultimately to found Fresh Chick Design Studio?

We both hold degrees in interior design. We worked in the model home industry and as the economy took a turn, and the onset of having kids, we needed an creative outlet to allow us to work from home and still design.  The planning for babies started with designing graphics for our baby showers, creating the party decor, and then nurseries, there was just a natural progression which then led to birthday parties. Friends started asking us to design their party invites so upon that, our Etsy shop was born.

What is your favorite part of your daily work … when you reflect on the day, what is most rewarding?

Being endless in our creativity. The most rewarding part is the flexibility we have being our own boss and being home with our kiddos…we love that we get to do what we LOVE and inspire others along the way all while raising our families.

Do you have any advice for other working moms?

Don’t beat yourself up with mommy guilt. Working and finding time for you is an important component in life. We are both better moms because we are able to fulfill our creative desire with our business, add some financial support and most importantly, have some adult time.

What is your most memorable design project?

For both of us it had to be the nursery for our first babies. It was so special to be able to design such a neat space for a client we had not “met” but we were so connected to {wink}.

If you could design a room or event for anyone in the world, who would it be?

Eeek!!  Well…we’d love to throw a cocktail party for Chelsea Handler, a kid’s party or baby shower for Tori Spelling and design a nursery for Jessica Simpson.

What thing/place/event were you most recently inspired by?

I don’t think we ever stop getting inspired. We live our lives constantly on the hunt for inspiration. We love to browse fabrics for color and pattern combos.

Where is your favorite place you have traveled to?

Rebecca:  I love the simplicity and laid back feel of small beach town. My husband and I love Laguna Beach, CA

Shannon:  France, it was the ultimate experience in travel…the history, art, and architecture was overwhelmingly awesome.

Where in the world are you dying to go next?

Australia…but at this point we’d settle for a roadtrip to San Diego.

What is your favorite Rosenberry Rooms product?

ugh…there are so many fabulous items to choose from!!

Cake by Petunia Pickle Bottom  – The Society Satchel Diaper Bag, anything Jonathan Adler, and the Double Decker bedding by Designer’s Guild.

Do you have any news that you would like to share, perhaps about upcoming events or projects?

We recently opened a “brick & mortar” party boutique in our town called Petite Party Studio. We will be rolling out our on-line shop SOON!!

Now, just for fun:

Favorite Food: we LOVE Mexican

Favorite TV Show:

Rebecca:  I love anything design related and I am kinda a reality junkie

Shannon: Saturday Night Live (if I am awake long enough to watch and Justin Timberlake is on)

Favorite Movie:

Rebecca: I can’t name just one, but I love teeny bopper, chick flicks!  “Clueless” anyone?
