Dear Family, Friends, and Design Enthusiasts
April 03, 2017
I am so happy and proud to introduce my rebranded and refreshed interior design firm and studio, Erika & Company Interior Design. My wonderful, energetic staff and I welcome new showroom and studio at 245 Town Center Ave., Big Sky, MT.
So, why the change when the name Carole Sisson Designs has such longevity and trust associated with it? It wasn't easy, but at the end of the day, this new chapter honors our past and energizes and claims our future. It was a hard decision, but I'm thrilled I made it. For those of you that don't know the story, here's the short and sweet of it.
I started working with Carole Sisson in Bozeman 15 years ago as one of her designers. I was so excited as she was one of the most well-known and experienced designers in our region and had been for over 30 years. I was given the opportunity to design, open and operate a satellite office in Big Sky for Carole Sisson Designs. Carole invited me to join as a partner in 2007.
Carole and her husband Gary were amazing mentors to me on both a business and design level. They provided a stable business model for me to uphold through the ugly economic downturn. We weathered the storm and came out stronger on the other end. As a final buyout drew near, I always figured I would keep the Sisson name for its strong brand in our area. Of course, I would be dropping the Carole as I am in fact, Erika, contrary to popular belief. But, as I moved through the final stages with lots of reflection on my journey I realized something. The last ten years of designs, relationships, hardships, ins, outs, ups, and downs were mine. And although I will be forever honored to have worked under the Carole Sisson Designs Brand, I decided that my company and I are ready to make it our own—in name and style.
Welcome, Erika & Company Interior Design established May 2017.
Cheers to so many people for being a part of this crazy awesome 15-year adventure. My husband Matt, my sons Matthew and Jack, my fantastic staff (past and present), my lovely clients and friends and to all my extended family and friends. You have all been my primary spirit and inspiration!
