MEET PERLICK #SEARCHFORCOOL FINALIST ARIANNE BELLIZAIRE
To celebrate our 100th anniversary, Perlick took to the showfloor at the 2017 Kitchen and Bath Industry Show in Orlando to find a cool and confident individual to serve as our company’s Ambassador of Cool for 2017. We had a wealth of talented, inspiring kitchen and bath professionals participate in our live auditions with Editor at Large at the show, and we’re proud to introduce the third of our five #SearchforCool finalists!
Company & Position: Owner of Arianne Bellizaire Interiors / Creator of InspiredToStyle.com
Location: Baton Rouge, Louisiana
Tell Us Why You Chose To Be A Designer:
Actually, design chose me! In my previous life, I worked in corporate communications, but I’ve always had a passion for design. My mother can tell stories of how I used to rearrange and redecorate my bedroom when I was a kid. When my family moved from Louisiana to Texas eight years ago; that “reset” provided me the opportunity to study the field of design and to ultimately start my own business.
Tell Us About A Project Where You See Opportunity to Incorporate Perlick:
One of the projects I am most looking forward to working on this year is the complete gut and renovation of a cool, mid-century modern home. Built circa 1975, this home is a true diamond in the rough (complete with pink carpet in the bathrooms! HORROR!), but as I walk through it, all I see are possibilities. This home will be designed with a true, southern host(ess) in mind—the center of which will be a chic kitchen that includes a dedicated beverage station. I see Perlick’s 24” Signature Series Dual-Zone Refrigerator/Wine Reserve fitting in perfectly here!
What’s Your Favorite Hobby/Thing To Do In Your Downtime?:
Read! I love to curl up with a good book! I also love dancing – I used to dream of being a backup dancer for Janet Jackson when I was growing up!
Favorite Perlick Product?"
The innovative design of the 24" Signature Series Dual-Zone Freezer/Refrigerator Drawers provides neatly organized and easy to access ingredients for the resident chef!
