Jamani Cretian, Lead Interior Stylist
As a design creative, recognized for his super clean, light lux, and minimalistic styling, Jamani Cretian seeks to show that although interior design is considered a luxury service, it can be attainable for everyone. As a child, Jamani was fed and motivated by creativity of any kind. He calls it his “happy place”. As a teen, he started redesigning spaces for family members, and even did renovations and photography as a hobby. Early success in these projects inspired Jamani to pursue design, renovation, and photography as a career.
“The act of pulling together a person’s ideas in my head, creating a vision for it, and translating it into reality for them is the greatest gift God has given me and truly makes me feel whole.” -Jamani C.
Jamani’s experience working at Lowe’s Home Improvement has provided a unique opportunity to engage with DIYers. Working closely with customers has sharpened his expertise in kitchen and cabinet designing, color consulting, flooring selecting, and space styling. While doing a color consultation for a client, Jamani was introduced to Brandy Landry of Brandy Landry Interiors, who agreed to mentor him. This mentorship led to Jamani’s current position as the Operations Manager and Lead Interior Stylist at 1123 Matte Black, LLC.
Jamani acknowledges the value of the transferable skills gained through his experiences and continues to grow. He recognizes that although style and a good design eye are important, it takes continued education to maintain a successful design career. As such, he continues to educate himself on everything design.
“ I am an open-minded creative. I like to think outside the box. I love to be challenged. I want to WOW myself with every design.” -Jamani C.
Veronica Alanis, Interior Stylist
Veronica Alanis, I am a Latina, a mother, a wife, an entrepreneur, an artist, and passionate about all things art! Although I was not brought up in a creative environment I discovered my designing skills very early on, and with the support of my family I pursued a degree in Fine Arts. Being able to bring to life a vision or idea as an interior stylist is fulfilling and I am blessed to have the opportunity to continuously explore my love for art thanks to it. Some of my many strong suits as a creative include my unique perspective as a Latina, I embrace my culture and love introducing my Hispanic roots through my creative vision when give the opportunity and I offer the ability to adapt to my clients ideas as well. I look forward to listening, learning, and sharing my ideas with my clients and at the end of the day be able to see them smile, because that is when I know my work is done.
