Gabriella Rodriguez

Style

My personal design style can be described as rustic, mid-century modern. Mid-century modern is my favorite design era and I love the new trend of industrial living, so mixing the two is where my heart really lies.

Inspiration

I pull inspiration from architectural features, antiques, artwork, and nature, but basically, I believe that anything you see, feel, taste, hear, or smell can become inspiration.

Client Interaction

I am fairly new to this business but have already made some great connections with my clients. I love the diversity of the people I get to work with and each person’s uniqueness that then contributes to the outcome of the design process. I especially love working with clients that aren’t afraid of color and want to do something different in a space. PerLora has a vast array of options to help our clients find the perfect piece that they can love for the next 20+ years.

Residential or Commercial?

I prefer residential more because I like the personalization that goes with it by creating the perfect space for clients to relax and live in.

More About Gabbi

I graduated from The Art Institute of Pittsburgh with a Bachelor of Science in Interior Design in 2016. And before that I grew up in a small town about 10 minutes from Hersheypark. I chose Pittsburgh to continue my education since I am an avid Steelers fan. My favorite part of being an Interior Designer is space planning and then coordinating fabrics and colors to make my client’s needs and desires for their room a reality.

In my spare time, I enjoy repurposing antiques, doodling, DIY projects and exploring Pittsburgh.

I started my career at PerLora in the Fall of 2015 as an intern. I now have a dual role of being a Designer here as well as the Operations Assistant where I assist with pricing, ordering, inventory control and store operations. Helping assist in the daily operations of the store is truly a benefit because I know our inventory and product details like the back of my hand. I am a walking book of knowledge on our products, come ask me a question!
