NEWH - Fall 2020 - 50

Q&A

CATCHING UP WITH

Kelly
	Irvolino
What have you found to be most valuable about your NEWH involvement, both
personally and professionally?

It is about the connections with the entire organization and to my local Boston/New England
design industry. Coming back to Boston after living and working in the New York area for
eight years, I had been disconnected from this area for a time (I graduated from a local
college in Newton back in 2009). Coming back, it has helped me meet more local designers
and architects while reconnecting with old friends I haven't seen in some time.

Why do you recommend people get involved with NEWH?

I recommend it for the great networking and the ways it gives back to the future designers
in our industry. And it helps you meet more connections-from local chefs to hotel and
restaurant owners.

Steering chair, New England
region

What is your proudest recent NEWH accomplishment?

Being able to plan the events and have them be a success! By far, the 2019 Holiday Gala at
the new Encore Casino was the hardest event. There is a lot that goes into planning these
events, from getting sponsors, to choosing scholarship winners, and awarding a TopID firm
in the region, and much more. In the end, you hope that your guests enjoy their time, meet
some new contacts, and raise enough money to give out more scholarships.

What are you most looking forward to?

Post quarantine, to be able to get back on a plane and go back to Europe and travel. I did not
realize how much I would miss getting on an airplane and going to a new city until we were
told we could not.

Where do you find inspiration, both inside and outside the industry?

I always look for inspiration in artwork, fashion, architecture, and paint colors. Finding a
pattern that I normally wouldn't gravitate toward and disassembling it. My favorite thing
to do is pull apart the pattern and then piece different elements of it together to create
something new.

When you aren't working or at an NEWH event, where can we find you?
Typically out with friends, shopping, working out, or in New Jersey visiting family
and friends. ❙❘❚
