interior design director, partner, NCIDQ, LEED AP
Adrienne wanted to be an interior designer since she was in the 6th grade. Once she discovered that you could combine art with problem solving & your surrounding environment, a mix of both your left & right brains – she was hooked. Growing up in military base housing where nothing could be permanent, she learned creative ways to alter her environment via paint, furniture arrangement, etc. with the help of her partner in crime – her mom. This grew to a deep passion for design that continued into college at Iowa State University. Since then she has been a high-end residential designer a.k.a. marriage counselor and eventually stepped into commercial design when she moved to Boise in 2010. She is passionate about the non-profit clients she works with such as Idaho Foodbank, Interfaith Sanctuary and Idaho charter schools. Her husband, TJ, is a big supporter of her passion for design, and although he loves how creative his wife is, he’s made a rule that no more lamps or chairs are allowed in their house. In her spare time, ha!, when not chasing her son, Cole, around, Adrienne loves to repurpose old items/furniture, give life to her garden and read. She has loved being a part of the erstad team since 2012, becoming a partner in 2021.
