A Creative Life: Angela Adams

What a treat... Designer extraordinaire Angela Adams took a few minutes to answer some questions about her "creative life" with us today! If you don't already know about her famed, gorgeous rug designs, then you've got some catching up to do because she has since gone on to create bedding, bath, pillow, bag, glass collections that will leave you breathless. Her latest launch is a quilt collection that won't break the bank available at Macy's.

Quilts, rugs and bags aside...I am just completely enamored with Angela's natural sense of design and interpretation of nature. Be sure to check out her website for more!

Quite a few of us here use your bags to double as stylish "diaper"
bags and we'd love to know if there are any other products from your line that you'd recommend for moms on the go?

Thanks for carrying our bags!
I like the small leather clutches, for added functionality in your totes…. You can quick grab one when going to the market or post office.

Any suggested favorite rugs for the little one's room? I so appreciate how playful they are without being too baby'ish (my personal favorite for the nursery would be ocean in seaglass!).

Kids have always spoken our design language so fluently. They get it. So it really depends on what vibe you want that particular room to have. I would lean toward fun designs that can become games… Pooky could become a fun Twister board. And textural rugs like Ocean are so soothing you just want to nap on them.

What inspires you and your work?

Mother nature inspires me more than anything.

Were you creative since you were a child?

Yes, I think all kids are creative and then it’s a matter of holding onto that as you grow older.

What's a typical day-in-your-life like?

When Im not traveling, I walk down the hill to work. Everyday is a little different thankfully, or I'd get nutty. Some days it is focussed on design and others its focussed on business. I like the mix - but I prefer more design than business. Then we usually go out for lunch at one of the great neighborhood spots. Then walk home at the end of the day. I love to cook, so I cook dinner almost every night. Hopefully somewhere in there I got some exercise:)

Greatest reward/challenge in what you do?

Every day I feel fortunate that I get to do what I do , with the peole I do it with. It really is a dream.
