Meet Johanna Karlsson and Viveka LeRoux of The Nordic Design Company in Fort Lauderdale

Today we’d like to introduce you to Johanna Karlsson and Viveka LeRoux.

So, Johanna and Viveka, before we jump into specific questions about the business, why don’t you give us some details about you and your story. We have always had an interest for interior decorating and interior design and when the opportunity presented itself to start our own company doing just that, we decided to take a chance and go for it.

Overall, has it been relatively smooth? If not, what were some of the struggles along the way? I think it’s very rare for any new small company to have a completely smooth ride in the beginning. We are still very much in the startup phase and have a long road ahead of us and I am sure we will have some bumps along the way. There are so many pieces to start a new company from creating a website that represents you and your brand and establish a strong social media presence.

Alright – so let’s talk business. Tell us about The Nordic Design Company – what should we know? We offer different design packages from a one room makeover to decorate a complete home. We want to make design accessible to the general population who might believe that “design” must be expensive and thereby dismiss hiring someone who can help them make their existing home into their dream home. I am proud of that we are two full-time mothers who are pursuing our dream and still manage to take care of our families. We hope to inspire other mothers to pursue their dreams even if you have to fight hard for it.

What were you like growing up?
We both grew up in the country side in Sweden and moved to the U.S in 2000. We did not know each other before we meet here in Florida but quickly became close friends. We both grew up around animals and the woods and have therefore always had a draw to nature and organic materials. Interior decorating has been something we have always enjoyed and pursued in our own homes.
