Hey y'all!

Allow us to introduce ourselves! We are Ellen and Darrell Parker, a husband and wife team of co-creators who love to travel, explore, and design. We were born and raised on the Gulf Coast of Mississippi, and though we live in New York now, the experience of growing up in the south has greatly shaped the people we are today. Darrell is a self-taught custom carpenter. When he's not at his 9-5 in Brooklyn, he keeps busy designing and building unique furniture and lighting. I am a Registered Nurse in New York City and in my spare time, I especially love brainstorming new designs for Darrell to create. We love to travel, and over the past three years have had the amazing opportunity to move coast to coast, living anywhere from Portland, Oregon to Grass Valley, California - from Providence, Rhode Island to now New York, New York. We have become pros at moving and seeing all there is to see in these amazing cities in the short amount of time we are allotted. We would love nothing more than to share these travel adventures and our one of a kind designs with you! We have wanted to make a creative space to tell our story for a while, and Parker Dearest is that space for us. We hope so greatly that you will follow along and enjoy this journey with us!
