Business Highlight from Renaissance Alumna, Mykeia Barksdale. Barksdale uses her talents to not only help others beautify their space, but sells excellently made candles. “Recognizing that she mirrored her mother’s affection for design and creativity, Mykeia enrolled in an interior design program following her Bachelor of Arts in education – yet another experience that refined her palate for décor and organization as she explored the role of space in educating her students. The interior design program helped Mykeia to truly grasp the concept “form follows function,” and where her understanding of design transcended the notion of making things look good. Mykeia knew then that interior design was her purpose. Shortly after, Barksdale Interiors was created where Mykeia shares her gift of syle and her passion for details, by creating beautifully functional spaces.”

Are any of your family traditions part of your business philosophy? Ilka, founder of #IBNMember @zoetbathlatier grew up watching her born-and-bred South Carolina grandmother create healing remedies from the various botanicals that grew wild in the Lowcountry. Ilka was so inspired by her grandmother’s techniques, even at an early age. .
Later in life, as the Colorado air began to take a toll on her skin, she revisited her grandmother’s traditions. “Zoet” means ‘sweet,’ ‘soft’, ‘gentle’ or ‘fresh’ in Dutch - the perfect name for this artisan maker and seller of luxe home goods.
Today I met a perfumer in Grasse, France, the fragrance mecca of the world, to perfect my blend for candles this summer and to bring back a ton of supplies. What an amazing experience - can’t wait to share them with you!
