Q. What questions should a consumer ask to hire the right service professional?
Q. Why does your work stand out from others who do what you do?
A. Beautiful Habitat was born of my belief that the home is a personal space; a habitat where you should feel completely at ease and which reflects your personality and the way you live. A well-designed habitat truly improves the quality of life for those living and working in it.
After years in a successful career in international business, I chose to focus completely on my lifelong passion for interior design and decorating. I moved to London, England and studied at both the prestigious Chelsea College of Art & Design and KLC School of Design. Having the opportunity to live, study and work overseas combined with extensive international travel has positively influenced my designs and ability to work with a variety of people. I am a certified member of Designer Society of America, having passed the Residential Interior Design Exam, an industry standard. Please visit my DSA portfolio. I am currently working toward certifications in Sustainable Design and Kitchen and Bath Design in Denver, Colorado.
Q. What do you like most about your job?
A. Good design solutions are not only beautiful, but solve problems and help my clients “live better” in their homes. It is about transforming a home into your home.
Q. What do you wish customers knew about you or your profession?
A. I often hear clients say they are looking for a designer that “matches their style”, meaning they look at portfolios and choose designers that have rooms with a “look” that the client wants. What I’d like them to know is that a good designer can design in any style. What is more important is choosing a designer based on a good personality fit and comfort level. This is a long term relationship and you want to ensure you can work well together.
Q. Tell us about a recent job you did that you are particularly proud of.
A. I recently won an award for a Kitchen design in Boulder, CO. Read about it here: http://www.beautifulhabitat.com/beautiful-habitat-wins-at-nkba-peak-awards/
