Meet Ericka

Moody is an innovative, visionary leader in the interior design industry, working with clients across the globe for over three decades.  Her body of work includes model homes, sales offices and recreation centers for builders and developers, as well as luxury residences.  Prior to launching her firm in April 2020, Moody worked with Design Line Interiors for 21 years, where she began her career in the building industry.  Her passion, creativity, and diligence propelled her from Design Assistant to Project Manager, Design Director, and ultimately, President.  Following that, she served as Regional Vice President for Denver-based design firm, TRIO, successfully chartering and growing the firm’s work in the West Coast region.  Her design career began with the design of specialty retail stores, and the knowledge she has gained over the past 30 years has allowed her to offer high level experience to her clients today.

Ericka began her firm in April 2020 with the goal of providing smaller-scope, more personalized interior design services to builders, developers, and luxury homeowners. She understands the need for flexibility when working with client’s differing goals and budgets, and prides her firm on working closely to align with each client’s individual needs. Moody was thrilled to receive the 2020 BIA R.I.S.E. Resilience Award for her achievement in starting a successful firm during a pandemic.

Ericka earned her Bachelor of Science in Interior Design from Cal Poly, San Luis Obispo, and received her NCIDQ certification in 2008. Her passion for interior design began at a young age when she took her first drafting class at the age of 13, and continued as she immersed herself in the Regional Occupational Drafting program at Mission Bay Highschool. She loves to collaborate with architects prior to construction, ensuring every inch of the project is cohesive and beautiful, and also functions perfectly for each client’s needs.

Since 2005, Moody has been a member of the San Diego Building Industry Association, and most recently served as the 2020 Chair of the Sales & Marketing Council, which received The Nationals Silver Award for Sales and Marketing Council of the Year 2021. Today, she continues her commitment to her hometown BIA today as Past President of the SMC. She has been an active member of the San Diego Mesa College of Interior Design Advisory Committee since 2007, and has also participated in student portfolio reviews and mock interviews at Design Institute of San Diego for many years. When Ericka is not immersed in design, she finds inspiration through travel, and is always on the lookout for her next great adventure!
