New P&C Coming Soon
plinthandchintz-72.jpgATTENTION VISITORS: We are in the midst of some major online spring cleaning, completely overhauling plinthandchintz.com’s look, feel, and functionality. All of the content moving, code scrubbing, and image dusting is taking us longer than we would like, but our shiny new website will be worth the wait. Stay tuned for the new P&C!
2014/03: Education + Experience = Success

Spring break is just around the corner with summer soon to follow. This is not just wishful thinking to help you survive the winter; this is a fact. So while time is still on your side, start thinking about how to secure an internship, job or volunteer opportunity in order to gain practical experience to enhance your valuable design education.
2011/11: Charrisse Johnston


charrisse_johnston-title.gifIf the fountain of youth is hard work, then it makes complete sense why Charrisse Johnston, ASID, LEED AP, Assoc. AIA, looks so ridiculously young. This Interior Designer / Associate at Gensler in Los Angeles began her career on Wall Street after earning a BA in Behavioral Sciences from The Johns Hopkins University and a MBA in Management and Marketing from Columbia Business School. And before she went on to become class valedictorian in her UCLA Extension Interior Design Program, she managed to start, establish, and sell an immensely successful event planning business. Did we mention that she had some children along the way? So if you are feeling a bit exhausted these days, take a quick breather and absorb some of Charrisse’s extra energy by osmosis.

2012/09: Crystal Bridges Museum of American Art


crystal_bridges-title.gifArkansas is known more for hot springs, Razorback football, and Bill Clinton than for fine art and culture, but with the opening of Crystal Bridges Museum of American Art, The Natural State’s image is shifting. The brainchild of art lover Alice Walton, one of the wealthiest people in the U.S., the museum is an intersection of art, architecture and nature, which is reportedly what she charged Israeli-born, Boston-based architect Moshe Safdie to create. Recently we were fortunate enough to receive a personal tour by Trails & Grounds Manager and family friend, Clay Bakker, and we have supplemented this article with photographs contained in our Crystal Bridges Facebook Album. As the 120-acres surrounding the museum is one of the largest native plant gardens, Bakker’s role is significant, and the Arkansas-native was proud to talk about the project’s evolution and outstanding result.
