Art & Life with Lindsay Stokes Kennedy and Alexandra Cole

Today we’d like to introduce you to Lindsay Stokes Kennedy and Alexandra Cole.

Lindsay, Alexandra, please kick things off for us by telling us about yourself and your journey so far.
After working together in the industry, once we realized our unique drive and vision, we branched off together to start our own firm focused on functional design and building relationships. In our first year, we opened, developed and sold a design studio in Signal Hill, and now have recreated a space of our own in Huntington Beach, CA. Our unique firm is now focused on lifestyle designs including interiors, events and decor and have had success along the coast of California from San Francisco to San Diego.

Can you give our readers some background on your art?
THREE SALT DESIGN Co. is a design collective specializing in high end residential interiors, boutique commercial spaces and specialty event concepts. We develop beautiful and functional concepts that are timeless yet creative, beautiful yet smart.

Interior Design is extremely personal, and we don’t take it lightly. Buying a house is a huge step in someone’s life, and making it a home is just as important. Too often, we under estimate the safe haven and small oasis our homes can be and settle for less than perfect. So, THREE SALT DESIGN Co.’s number one focus is the individual; their routine, their desires, and the feelings they want their space to evoke. We understand and appreciate the importance of a comfy sofa that is there to welcome you after a long day, and a storefront that makes your customers excited to shop and share. That’s where our specialty services come in. We specialize in custom goods, so that our clients feel confident that their space is a unique reflection of them. We’re always excited to be a part of that process, thinking of things to wow our clients and transforming their spaces.

Do you think conditions are generally improving for artists? What more can cities and communities do to improve conditions for artists?
Being a creative entrepreneur is hard work, no matter what decade you live in. Turning your craft and talents into a business sometimes works against the creative nature of an artist or designer, so staying focused on your development and growth can become trying. With so many facets to art and design, I think what bigger cities like Los Angeles and San Diego can do is create spaces that allow creatives to network, encouraging their collaborations and the display of their art. Pop up shop experiences for retailers with custom goods and decor (like us!) who maybe pay discounted fees from being locals can always help artists get the word out. It’s about exposure, and really the city only gains from encouraging their artists.

What’s the best way for someone to check out your work and provide support?
Our work is located online at our website ! You can also visit our studio to check out all of our custom goods, specialty pillows and window treatments.

Since we can’t just send strangers to someone’s house, this is probably your best bet. lol. We have a relaunch happening closer to the end of the year, and we will have our studio remodeled and open for a sweet little shindig. Stay tuned!
