Overall, has it been relatively smooth? If not, what were some of the struggles along the way? GOGO design group evolved from a journey of self-discovery and mind/body/soul work that continues to this day. When I started my business in 2001 as Schema Interiors, my life revolved around my identity as a religiously observant mother of 3 unique and amazing children, focusing mainly on family life and serving clients in our immediate community.

Life moves forward at GOGO design group, embracing this refreshing notion fuels growth and evolution. Just as our interior design work supports and inspires our clients as their lives are elevated forward, we continue to hone our WHY. Bringing More Love and Light Simply put, our purpose is not only… Read more

What is “success” or “successful” for you? Success occurs when the mind, body and spiritual self are balanced. It’s true that financial independence defines success for many. Earning money to support our emotional and physical life is necessary, but everyone has different needs financially. Do I want to travel more and spend extended time in Italy? Yes. Do I want to take my kids on more vacations and finance the education they want to pursue? Yes. Do I want to stay healthy, fit and strong, after veering off path with two previous back surgeries? Yes. Do I want to experience loving, soul nurturing relationships with people who inspire and support me? Yes. Do I want to grow GOGO design group into a legacy and empower my employees to achieve their professional and professional goals? I sure do.

Rebecca, please share your story with us. How did you get to where you are today? GOGO’s story began when I was a tiny girl who accompanied her art historian mother on a regular basis to art museums and outdoor museums such as Colonial Williamsburg, Virginia and Old Sturbridge Village in Massachusetts. During those excursions, she taught me how form truly follows function. She described how color, shape, composition and the people living in the spaces we viewed, both in paintings and in everyday life, were affected emotionally by these factors. On these excursions I absorbed a sense of empathy, which I am honing as an adult. HOW we experience the spaces in which we live, is the essence of creating our homes, not only on a physical level, but on an emotional level, as well.

These things are my markers of success. As far as I’m concerned, I’ve already achieved success on so many levels. The beauty is we are all capable of enjoying daily successes through mindful living, as we cultivate our best lives, observe miracles and learn something new every day about ourselves and the world around us. Personal success truly can be discovered and experienced during the journey, not at the destination.

VoyageChicago owes a huge debt to the incredible local community of influencers – from fashion bloggers to foodies – who put…

Working at a boutique Bed and Bath shop after completing my Bachelor of Arts and subsequently a career development workshop, directed me to enroll in evening Interior Design classes in Boston. Then, after 10 years of working in marketing and public relations, the universe led me to complete my BFA in Interior Design in Chicago. I then worked for a few years for a beautiful soul and brilliant Interior Designer, who to this day I model my business after, with her sense of Grace and Integrity as my inspiration. In 2001, I embarked on my solo interior design career and founded Schema Interiors. Then, in 2012, as my emotional and physical life experienced a huge transformation, GOGO design group was naturally born. As I evolve and gain wisdom, so does GOGO, always on the cusp of cutting edge evolution.

By elementary school, I subconsciously shaped my immediate world to feel emotionally safe and joyful. Gratefully, I discovered creative outlets that nourished my spirit. I studied dance and music from a young age through my time at the University of Wisconsin-Madison. I loved creating shadow box interiors based on books I read in school and rearranging my dollhouse interiors, followed by frequently arranging my bedroom furniture and poster art on the walls. Always observing how the space felt and looked as it brought me joy was the driving force, as the varied furnishings and decor were the icing on the cake. To this day, one of my design loves is rearranging existing elements and breathing new life into them, simply by playing with their composition, shape, color and visual space.

I prefer to collaborate with my clients to create their personal design well-being rather than impose my personal style on a project. My approach to creating a new space includes a transformational process, through which the design reflects the lifestyle, personality, and soul of the people living there.

While I truly enjoyed the accolades of bringing great design to life for others, I was living with debilitating depression, which was preventing me from discovering my true self and voice, both as a woman and as an Entrepreneur.

Serving the world at large and making an impact is one of my life purposes and I love inspiring others to do the same, if only by sharing more kindness and compassion with the people they encounter each day.

Also, another charity organization that is dear to my heart is Designs4Dignity  http://www.designsfordignity.org/. Designs4Dignity transforms lives by offering pro bono design, build services to organizations such as local YMCA’s, women’s shelters, special needs homes, etc. I am privileged to have been the lead designer on one of their grant projects, and am currently on the design team for another grantee.

Giving back and improving the world in any way I can is truly my MO.  As such, I feel success in that I am blessed to offer my gifts as an interior designer and in my ability to share my personal story as a voice on behalf of mental health awareness.  I am grateful to be on the board of the charity organization, No Shame on U, http://www.noshameonu.com, a Chicago based non-profit dedicated to spreading mental health awareness and banishing the stigma of mental illness.

My passion for seeing the beauty in life began as a little girl during frequent excursions to art museums and galleries with my art historian mother. Studying interiors in fine art taught me how the dance between shape, texture, color and composition evokes an emotional experience. This intense passion for aesthetics and interior living led me to earn a BFA at Chicago’s International Academy of Design and Technology. In 2001, I founded Chicago interior designers firm, GOGO design group to serve clients in the Chicago area and throughout the Midwest. I am also an avid writer on topics in the interior design industry, including publishing a monthly design article/video series called GOGO Living that educates consumers with how-to interior design project tips. I am also a public speaker at consumer education events and business to business design/build events on topics including the how-tos for renovating or building a new home and implementing design well-being in your home.

My work for clients has appeared in print, including Chicago Tribune Magazine and Color at Home, written by Meg and Steven Roberts, Houzz.com and HGTV.com:

With the Universe guiding me, I tapped into my personal power and true voice through a mind/body transformation and intensive Krav Maga training, a pivotal, life changing experience. Internalizing the concept of self-love, practicing the courage to shine my light, and embracing the power of vulnerability has been my greatest challenge. The beauty of this is as I evolve as a woman, GOGO design group evolves as a thriving business, serving clients in Illinois and Wisconsin and destinations beyond. I have learned along the way that the personal and professional life are truly entwined and as I embrace this concept, GOGO is carving our own unique niche in the Design, Build marketplace, a challenge for any growing interior design business.

Chicago is an incredible city – but it’s so large and so vast and so diverse that all of us are missing out on tons of great people, businesses, organizations, events and more.
