Design for the PPL’s founder and principal designer Erin Haskell Gourde has always been destined for a career in the arts. A foundation in fashion–with exciting work at Stella McCartney’s London studio, an Arizona-based luxury lifestyle magazine publishing house and creative pursuits of her own–gave Haskell Gourde a base of knowledge and understanding that design and style could be a fulfilling career path, and one fit for her unique skillset.
Haskell Gourde’s career trajectory was solidified when she earned her Master’s degree in Interior Design in 2013. She took her interest in interiors and architecture more seriously, and began to hone her craft with small projects. Time spent at renowned architect firms, like the iconic Herman-Miller, were just the start of her post-grad design journey, strengthening her expertise and building her design portfolio.
Full-service interior and architecture design studio Design for the PPL was built in 2016 upon Haskell Gourde’s foundation of design knowledge, love of people and of spaces. Her team, contractors, clients and their personalities–coupled with her near-psychic ability to look at a space and know instantly what it should become–are her inspiration and magic, informing her daily work.
Haskell Gourde works out of Spokane, Washington, offering commercial and residential design up the West coast, including full design services, or her expertise for a single day. Her new Spokane showroom offers luxe goods from all over the world, modern and unique furniture, carefully-curated decor, art and other nonsense to delight design clients and the public alike.
