Design & Color Consultant
As a young girl, I loved to color and paint. For hours I’d entertain myself sitting on the porch, brush in hand, painting the afternoon away. Having that ability to express myself through color and composition has always felt natural to me, and it’s become a big part of my life now as an adult. My late father has also been a big influence in supporting this career, as he loved to thrift and find new pieces of furniture & art for our home. He definitely had an eye for style and was good at finding quality items at a great deal.
Focused on being a part of the creative world in the real world, I entered into college and chose to study interior design in order to fulfill my artistic nature, ultimately receiving a bachelors degree in the field. For me, interior design has always been about creating a feeling, having the ability to create a harmonious experience through each space. Interior design is also a facilitative process; it’s not about me, it’s about working within my clients space to showcase their own unique style in a manner that feels best, similar to the intention of feng shui.
As a design graduate out of college in 2008, I was lucky enough to land an internship with nationally renowned designer and color expert Emily Lauderback of Seattle, WA. During that time, I was immersed in the design world from beginning to end, with an emphasis on color. She has a great understanding of color and their relationships to architecture and has helped thousands of clients with her simple, two-step process. Under her training and mentorship, I am certified in color as a Color in Space™ Consultant and have continued to share this design approach with homeowners in the twin cities area. My purpose is to serve clients through color in order to create spaces that resonate, compliment and support each other.
