HELLO! Let's get acquainted!
Interviewed by Jami Thompson of JBird
Who are you?
I’m a wife, mother, friend, designer, business owner and much more. In all facets I
pride myself in being outgoing and easy to talk to. I am also a good listener, professional and stylish, but practical.
What inspires you?
Nature has a big influence on my designs. I love to mix colors and textures that are
found in nature.
What is your personal style?
My personal design style is mid-century modern meets British Isles with a lot of
nature and practical glam thrown in. In other words very eclectic.
How do trends influence your designs?
Trends are important to keep the design looking current but I try and stay away from them in the big surfaces or large furniture items. This helps keep the overall design from looking to dated down the road. I would much rather use trends of fresh color on a wall or as accents in accessories.
Where did the name Details come from?
Details was born from a text early one morning from a client. She was thanking me
for letting her sleep, knowing that I was handing "the details". That’s when I decided to merge all my knowledge and life experience into handling the "Details".
Why did you become a designer?
After obtaining my degree in Sales and Marketing I went to work for a large
corporation, after a few years I knew it wasn't my passion. My passion was interiors.
I went back to school and learned that there was a lot more to design than I originally thought. Now I get to do what I love everyday!
Why hire a designer?
Hiring a designer is a very personal choice, you have to have a personal connection
and a lot of trust. Designers help stream line the decision making process and help
things run soother. You have no idea where to start? I have been trained to ask the
right questions to send you in a direction. A professional also helps keep you and your budget on track.
