Interior Design Major Wins at Interior Design Career Day

Interior design major Stephanie Lopilato ’14 won second place in the Student Design Competition at the Interior Design Career Day 2012. Held at The Boston Design Center, this event was organized by the New England chapters of the International Interior Design Association and American Society of Interior Designers. Budding designers had the chance to enter the design and technology competition to showcase their cutting-edge projects.

Lopilato’s project was created in her Interior Design 202 Commercial Design Studio course with Professor Courtnay Wallace who has a thriving architectural practice called e-volutions Designs on Newbury Street in Boston. The course focuses on design issues and presents students with the criteria that must be considered when selling spaces. Additionally, in the studio course, students learn how to expand their creativity as well as enhance product displays in small to medium-size design projects.

Many schools in New England participated in the 2012 Student Competition, including Wentworth Institute of Technology, New England School of Art and Design at Suffolk University, Newbury College, Endicott and the Boston Architectural College. Congratulations again to Stephanie Lopilato for representing Mount Ida with her prized project from Professor Wallace’s studio course.
