Daily Inspiration: Meet Alidia Strouse

Today we’d like to introduce you to Alidia Strouse.

Hi Alidia, please kick things off for us with an introduction to yourself and your story.
For as long as I can remember, I have always enjoyed adding design elements to a space to create mood and capture emotion. Whether it was re-painting my childhood bedroom bright pink or rearranging the furniture in our family living room, I was obsessed with how the feeling of a room would instantly change the minute I made any updates. It wasn’t until after college I realized how much I loved and genuinely enjoyed interior design. After renting my first apartment, I would start to experiment and explore design to find out my true design style. When family and friends would come over to our house, the outpour of comments on my design was always encouraging and ultimately pushed me to create an Instagram page to showcase my design. Once I started showing my design on Instagram, neighbors, friends, family would reach out to ask for my help in designing their spaces. Ultimately this led to officially launching DesignByAlidia.com.

We all face challenges, but looking back would you describe it as a relatively smooth road?
The saying, “nothing easy is worthwhile” is on repeat in my head when something doesn’t go as I envisioned it. From business challenges to marketing to juggling multiple projects at once, they all bring their own and different challenges to learn from. I am extremely thankful to have a strong support system to keep me going in reaching my dreams and goals.

Thanks for sharing that. So, maybe next you can tell us a bit more about your work?
Design By Alidia is an interior design studio that specializes in Bedroom, Living Room, Dining Room, Nursery, Entry Way and Bathroom re-design. Whether you are just looking for a space refresh or are looking to completely makeover your entire room, we got your back!

We currently offer two packages to fit the needs of all our customers:

Our first package, Design Consultation, is perfect for the customer who doesn’t know where to start. With our Design Consultation, we will evaluate your needs and curate a package specific for you.

Our second and most popular package, E-Design package, was created for the customer who wants to do the heavy lifting of pulling the space together on their own but doesn’t know where to start. This package is all virtual and can be done at your own pace. When purchased, you will be asked to fill out a questionnaire and our team will find inspiration, design a mood board, gather shopping links and create a room layout for you to follow.

At Design By Alidia, we are known for our traditional design style and our hard-working attitude. We take pride in designing a space with intention that functions around your everyday.

Where we are in life is often partly because of others. Who/what else deserves credit for how your story turned out?
My family and friends deserve all the credit! They have pushed and supported me since day one. They believe in me more than myself most days and their love and support mean more to me than anything.

Special shout out to Erik who has been there since the launch of Design By Alidia. He is the mastermind behind bringing all projects to life. From hanging shiplap to wainscoting to re-painting a wall, he is a key teammate in bringing all of our projects to life. I could not do this without his hard work, love and support!
