I’m thrilled to be adding a new component to our website this week, our blog! I’ll be sharing what inspires me, my favorite products, and design tips along the way. I’m often asked where I find items I use and I’m looking forward to sharing more of that here!
But first, I think a new blog calls for a little introduction so I wanted to share more about myself.
I’m an interior designer based out off Amarillo, TX. I have two children, Catherine and Thomas, and am currently renovating my home, a 1927 Georgian. (We’ll definitely be sharing more of that process here on the blog.) We also have the sweetest corgi - golden retriever mix, Margo.
I’ve known I wanted to be an interior designer since a very young age. I earned a degree in Interior Design and a minor in Architecture. Following graduation, I had the privilege to work for a Dallas designer named Barry Williams at his firm, Barry Williams Inc. Working for Barry inspired me every single day. The vast amount of information I learned from him is still something I carry with me today.
I define my style as classic, traditional, and timeless. I believe you have to look to the past for inspiration. Pieces that are too trendy will never surpass the test of time. Not to mention, vintage pieces and true antiques were painstakingly made back then. Often, with today’s current pieces, “our need to have it now” mentality forces manufacturers to produce poorly made items very quickly. Always remember, good things come to those who wait…. My style is often based on family heirlooms. Heirloom furniture always has a place in homes I design because those pieces hold special memories for my clients; additionally, these are the pieces that make each space feel unique.
I can’t wait showcase more on the blog and look forward to getting to know you all more as well…
