Today we are honored to introduce you to Bri from Reverie – The Shop.
Please introduce yourself to our readers and explain a little bit about your business.
For as long as I can remember I’ve been enamored by the feeling when you create and construct your ideas and inspirations. About ten years ago I went to school for design, drawing, pattern making, to dye processing. I fell in love with every bit of it! In the meantime, I was married to the love of my life and we have three beautiful children. My dreams were put on hold, until a year ago I started designing again, selling to friends and doing some local art shows. The past year has been a great and exciting journey, my online boutique now with over 250 products inspired by far off places, vintage treasures and childhood memories. I’ve been working in a local design studio, channeling my inner hippie, creating, dyeing, and constructing. Sharing my inspiration through my work and will continue to be inspired and hopefully inspire others.
We believe that one of the ways to achieve happiness is to “Do what you love, love what you do.” How does this philosophy apply to your life?
I’ve faced a lot of challenges to get here and it hasn’t been easy and this philosophy has been exactly what I’ve set my goals based on. With three small children and having a corporate job throughout this journey, it’s been extremely difficult to find the time to design, create, and construct. Working extremely hard throughout all the ups and downs, it’s all worth it! Now I’m in the position and place where I feel that I’m truly “Doing what I love, & love what I’m doing.”
Our mission here at The Bright Side Project is to spread sunshine on a daily basis because we firmly believe that life is (still) beautiful. Where do you find beauty and inspiration?
I believe beauty comes from within, it’s all about your heart. I’m inspired by nature mostly., we’re a family of surfing, travel, & gardening. Adventure is a big thing for me, being in nature trying something new and experiencing life with the ones you love.
On a dreary day, what do you do to infuse your life with a little bit of sunshine?
When I’m having one of those moments, I say a little prayer, find my way to the ocean and listen to happy music:) It’s all about perspective!
What are you most grateful for?
I’m so grateful for my parents and the foundation they built for my brothers and I.
