New Host Business Spotlight: AYI & Associates, a Boutique Design Firm

New Host BusinessCHI’s Internship program is excited to be partnering with a new host business, AYI & Associates.  AYI is located in Carmel, CA and specializes in interior design with classic style.  They will be welcoming Maisa Alonso Ustulin, from Brazil, next month.

Maisa earned her bachelor’s degree in architecture and urbanism from the University of Sagrado Coração, and has already completed a few internships in Brazil.  She is really looking forward to experiencing an American business for the first time.  Living abroad is something she has always wanted to do.  Maisa says, “I am confident that this opportunity will make me grow a lot, professionally and personally.”

Established in 2002, AYI is run by Ashley Yeates.  She is the President and Director and an allied member of the American Society of Interior Designers.  Ashley will work directly with Maisa during her internship.

While with AYI, Maisa will assist in interior and furniture design projects as well as in the retail storefront with sales and product placement.  At a full service commercial and hospitality design service, Maisa will learn the importance of developing good communication skills with customers.

New Host BusinessAYI has a wonderful philosophy:

“The art of interior design is finding a balance.  A balance between the old and new, possible and unimaginable, simple and complex, classic and cutting edge, salvaged and priceless.  The success of interior decorating relies on a combination of listening, accepting, challenging, interpreting, budgeting, implementing, managing, transforming, achieving, and exceeding expectations.”

Here at CHI, we are very excited to partner with AYI & Associates, and we are sure Maisa is going to have a wonderful experience!
