I want to introduce you all to Mindtheminimal. I met Stephanie at a networking event, and a few months later, I got some gorgeous decor pieces for Bourbon & Honey HQ. I am in love with this girl's creative business, which she runs with a fierce passion, keen business savvy and kind spirit. Here's a bit more of her story.
Tell me a little bit about yourself and your work. Where are you from? What do you do?
Stephanie Keung Born + Raised - Calgary, Alberta Handcrafted Minimal Aesthetic based on Concrete + Minimalism
What inspires you to do what you do? How did you start doing this work?
Mindtheminimal is based on concrete + minimalism to portray the effortless side of beauty to our modern day lifestyle. As a style blogger by day and maker by night, I believe that minimal is the new sophistication and it has inspired me to create these designs to strengthen the accent of simple day decor.
What inspires you most about your community?
I’m motivated by the vibe of our city and how it’s always growing and never giving up; much like the concrete itself, it’s nothing till you give it shape and it strengthens over time.
If you could give anyone who is starting out in your field one piece of advice, what would it be?
If it doesn’t challenge you, it won’t change you. Always stay inspired and never give up. :)
Tell me three fun facts about yourself or your organization.
- If I got to choose to wear one colour for the rest of my life, it’ll be black.
- If I’m not working, I’m usually snuggled with a hot cup of tea and watching Netflix.
- I’m a bit obsessive about cleanliness and personalization, that’s probably why I love minimalism ;)
