As time persists, the design limit line gets stretched higher while customer desires and expectations grow wider. Though some companies struggle to keep up, Alleanza Quartz stays ahead of the game to accommodate both needs and wants in the midst of shifting industry dynamics. We interviewed award-winning designer Jillian Sarkis of Emerald Design Studio to get her insight on noticeable new trends in customer requests, as well as important factors in her design and material selection process.
AN EXTENSION OF YOUR CHARACTER
For the past 11 years, Jillian has been helping customers express their character through their kitchens and bathrooms. “I’ve seen many different shifts in people’s preferences in the aesthetics and function of their kitchen. The trends I’m seeing happening in 2022 again goes back to seeing more personality in people’s spaces.” said Jillian. To perfectly capture this, Jillian takes inspirational photos and boards from Pinterest which customers give her and weaves elements from these into the final design. The result is a space that extends the customer’s own personality. It’s a statement of who they are and a place they feel comfortable to enjoy.
By adding touches of color in everything from paint to fabrics, tiles, cabinets, countertops, and more, Jillian is able to give the space life aligned with the customer’s identity. Bringing in designs with movement or contrast like Statuary Vena and Bianco Venatino also helps to create unique interest and puts natural perspective on the customer’s lifestyle. These details allow the space to clearly define who they are.

No matter which aspect of your quartz is most important to you, AQ has it covered. “When I’m selecting a quartz for my customer, really the number one important factor is going to be the quality of materials used. Not all quartzes are made equally…” Jillian explained.
