Courtney Morgenstern is inspired by joy –the fluid strokes of nature, the happiness of time well spent in her Grandma’s garden among the colorful flowers on the backdrop of a clear blue, perfect day. Emerging from a creative family, those around her knew she’d follow suit when she spent her childhood drawing, coloring, painting, and organizing her crayon box in rainbow order. Originally from mid-Michigan, she attended Kendall College of Art & Design in Grand Rapids earning a BFA in Illustration and Graphic Design. After a brief stint in marketing, she landed a job as a greeting card designer and fell in love with the stationery world; especially the ever-evolving trends and applications mirroring the fashion and textile industries. From there she segued into interior design; applying trend, training, and her keen eye to rug and fabric design. Her style reflects nature with a contemporary nod; she’s inspired by seamless textile patterns, watercolors, and hand-drawn typography. Her hope is to share and inspire joy with her designs. Each time you encounter her unique creations you experience nature’s beauty –her joy is your joy. Courtney returned to Midland, Michigan and calls it home with her husband, Rob, and their two boys. When she’s not designing, she enjoys beer tasting and watching the Chicago Cubs (win or lose, but preferably winning!), with her husband, and chasing after two very happy, loved boys.
