I’ve been an interior decorator since I was a little girl.
I shared a room with my sister, who neither cared about the room's appearance nor shared my vision for its decor. The unfinished space over our garage fueled my imagination with decorating ideas, so I transformed it into my bedroom and meticulously decorated it, complete with a candy dish, always filled.
There was no better way to spend a Saturday than with my nana, visiting the fabric store. I adored the various fabric types, the way they felt, their different grains, textures, and patterns. Now, as a tactile person who recognizes the significance of multi-textured environments, I understand why I was drawn to touch everything!
When I got married, it was my first chance to decorate my own home. With a mix of hand-me-down furniture and exquisite pieces rescued from my husband's parents' basement, the focus was on decoration and styling. Through drapes, slipcovers, and decorative pillows, I came to appreciate the vital role fabrics play in a room.
Once my children were all in school, I began working part-time at a boutique design firm specializing in window coverings and soft furnishings. It was all about fabrics, and I revelled in it!
Now, 20 years later, I find myself designing custom drapery, crafted from exquisite fabrics and enhancing the soft furnishings that surround them.
