Owner, Ariene C. Bethea

Dressing Rooms Interiors is a brand by Ariene C. Bethea fueled by her thrill of the hunt!  Her design style is heavily influenced by her mom’s flair for mixing Hollywood Regency, Mid-Century, Chinoiserie and African art into spaces. Growing up in a home infused with art and culture has influenced Ariene's eclectic casual style and her playful use of patterns and color.  

 

While working toward her dream of a brick and mortar, Ariene co-founded Elle & Bae, named BEST in CHARLOTTE for their curated high-end furniture and home decor boutique pop-up shop events. Years later, she co-founded The Olive Guide Magazine, a digital shelter magazine showcasing designers and creatives of color -- the first of its kind.  Ariene was also a regular contributor to Four Magazine interviewing Interior Stylist & HGTV Design Star Emily Henderson and  Interior Designer Nikki Chu.  And while working as Lifestyle Editor for Charlotte Style Magazine, Ariene created a regular series called "My Favorite Place" featuring homes of local Charlottean bloggers and sociallites.

 

Originally from Washington, DC, Ariene holds a Master's in Management Communication from Emerson College in Boston, MA and a Bachelor's in Corporate Communication from Elon University in Elon, NC.
