Ericka Austin


Please introduce and tell the readers a little about yourself.

Hello. I'm Ericka Austin Founder & CEO of E.L.A Interior Design LLC and also an Ohio Tri-state valley native currently based in Columbus, Ohio. Faith and family is my foundation and I am the proud single mother of two extraordinary young adults. My daughter Miss London Thompson is the Marketing Director of E.L.A. Interior Design, in which creative talents, professionalism, and innovative ideas are key to our future success.


What inspired you to become an Interior Designer?

Over two decades ago, I started a small side business with a high school friend creating table center pieces for dining and coffee tables. Each piece was handmade, painted, and styled by myself and sales were a success for a short time. Although the business did not continue my love for interior design was sparked. Money was pretty tight, so I learned creative ways to DIY home projects studying, learning, and watching every show on television before attending "The Academy of Art University for Interior Architecture and Design." Moving on to design remotely with "Modsy." Having my own design company was a long time dream, but unfortunately was put on hold due to suffering a ruptured brain artery at the start of the pandemic and hospitalized. The journey of healing and recovery has not been easy, but through God's grace and mercy I am hear today!


What inspired you to become an Interior Designer?

My advice to someone interested in becoming an Interior Designer would be to learn as much as possible, not only about design, fabrics, furniture etc., but also study business and what it takes to be successful in marketing and every aspect of running a successful business. The administrative work may not be fun or in your comfort zone, but don't give up or let it get you down it is crucial to your business in my opinion. Lastly, networking and working with honest and reliable trades who take pride in delivering great services and products.
