What are your sources of inspiration?
Human expression.

Form or function?
Both

What is your signature?
Stan Smith tennis shoes with the green back.

What is your personal decorating style?
Reclaimed rustic infused with modern.

Do you have a favorite possession?
My computer is the most important.

What one item do you wish you owned?
A house.

What’s your favorite room in your home?
I have the most fun in my bedroom—but I can’t say I have a favorite room.

Do you have one low budget decorating tip?
Use nails and string to make interesting patterns on a wall or ceiling. I once covered a 1000 sq ft popcorn ceiling for $100.—and it looked cool.

Where was your favorite place to live?
I lived in Goa, India with a big group of friends for over 6 months. We lived in an old Portuguese mansion on the beach and watched the sun set everyday.

Favorite artist? Designer?
I define an artist as someone who’s expressing their sense of self—regardless of the medium. So belief in the individuals’ human spirit is the only common tread between my favorites.

My favorite artist is always changing but right now it’s Lil Wayne. I think his music is exceptional and I believe in him.

What’s the best career advice you ever received?
Richard Branson’s biography is full of great advice.

Hey, this is a great profile on Parvez Taj. We always hear his name used in such an impersonal way - though I do know his name is the name of his business. When I hear "Parvez Taj", I think of his artwork, not of man. It is really enlightening to hear his actual thoughts.

Thanks for the great post!
