I am an interior designer and owner of Designer’s Eye, LLC. Designing interiors has been my profession for eleven years but that is only because I was too chicken to course-correct my career path in college.
I was almost certain that growing up near Charlotte, North Carolina, as I did, required a stint in the banking industry as an adult. So, I earned a suitable degree from UNC-Chapel Hill and served my time at a big bank; meanwhile, I was day dreaming about how to accessorize my cubicle to make it a bearable container each work day.
Encouragement from family and friends carried me through the rigors of earning another B.A., this time in Interior Design from Queens University while also working, raising children and starting my own business. The satisfaction of moving my life onto its proper trajectory was more than enough to overshadow the exhaustion and fear of the unknown a shift in life like that brings with it.
Brave and patient clients ushered me along the steep learning curve of owning a business. They took a risk on my freshly minted design skills (with stunning results) but it was their trust in my commitment to their vision of home that was the key to my growth and success.
Time and experience have honed my design tools giving me the freedom and delight in knowing how and when to break “the rules”. Time and experience have also honed my appreciation for the relationships I built with clients; clients who now have unwavering trust in my ability to carry them through a project, push them beyond their own vision and create with them a home which reflects the people, places and memories they cherish. A beautiful house. Their home.
It is with gratitude that I begin each new client relationship and design project, and in that order. I look forward to meeting you and yours.
