Cool Idea: Mother and Daughter Design Firm

In honor of Mother's Day, I wanted to focus on a design firm that's all about the mother-daughter relationship. Interior designer Afiya Kumar, founder of AHA Designs, and her mother Johnene Adams, run one of Chicago's premier interior design firms, creating distinctive environments for luxury residential and commercial boutique clients. For the past 10 years, the mother-daughter team has helped Chicago residents embrace contemporary global style. The firm specializes in custom-made pieces, and has crafted metalwork pieces into light fixtures for past projects. “We trust each other implicitly,” Adams says. The design firm's work has been featured in publications including Elle Décor and Interior Design Magazine.

Have you ever worked with your mom, whether on an interior design project or in the professional world? I've definitely enjoyed the DIY skills my mom has passed on to me. From wallpapering to decoupage to sewing curtains and coverlets, she's schooled me when it comes to home skills. Happy Mother's Day to all of the moms out there!
