Rashida Banks

Growing up in a classic Brooklyn, NY Brownstone (before they were cool), Rashida now resides in Washington, DC with her husband and two dogs. Her love for design started with the OG HGTV shows “Trading Spaces” and “While You Were Out”. And yes, she had gold sponged walls growing up. Talk about a 90s trend! She’s most likely to be found in a Starbucks drive-thru line because “Priorities”! When she’s not designing she loves watching rogue secret agent movies, singing and dancing, cracking up at every dog misbehaving in public, and spending time playing card games with her family! Oh, and Cashewmilk ice cream is the greatest invention of all time!
