SumMAR interns

MARtians! Happy Friday & Happy Weekend…

As you know, I love sharing my thoughts and experience in the wonderful world of design, lifestyle and beyond. This is one of the main reasons I am so happy to be able to participate in intern programs for high school students on the cusp of making huge choices about their future. This year, I have two shiny new interns. Team MAR calls them “Baby MARtians” for fun, but they are anything but childish.

Last week was the first full week of work for Adam and Katherine. Each of them brings a fresh perspective to the design influence I call Casual Luxury. I am delighted to include their input on “Life on Mar’s.” They will be revving up our social media outreach and helping us stay in-touch and current, including with the youth MARket. Here’s what each of them had to say when I asked them why they wanted to intern on planet MAR‘s.

Adam Kaplan: Staples High School

“I’ve always been someone who’s hated staying in my comfort zone. As an avid sports fan, choosing to work for an interior design show seemed to be an odd fit. However, in a short period of time, I’ve already learned a tremendous amount and am excited to see what comes next.”

Katherine Campbell: Wilton High School

“I recently finished up my senior year, and I plan on attending Franklin and MARshall College next year. I love shadowing Mar in the design world, but I’m considering pursuing a major in cognitive sciences this fall. My experience with Mar has been nothing short of excellent, and I’ve loved learning about his principles of design.”

I am excited to see the influence Adam and Kathrine will have on my planet. It’s my mission to keep abreast with what is happening today and to democratize good design – bringing Casual Luxury to all – regardless of finances, age, and type of residence. Casual Luxury is truly the cure for ALL design dilemmas. I hope you agree. If you don’t, I aim to change your mind!

Stay tuned for Adam and Katherine’s influence on things to come. They are only here for a few weeks, but they will be MARtians for a lifetime!

As always,

Keep It Casual!
