Meet Terry

Always independent, energetic, inquisitive and creative, it wasn’t until college that I understood my passion and aptitude for creativity would actually turn into a second career.  I fell in love with the art of designing beautiful spaces incorporating wood, stone, metal, glass, color and textiles to create works of art for comfortable living.

Design creates and effects change.  As it is with great architecture, good design has an affect on one’s emotions and physical wellbeing.  Good design is an artful study blending scale, balance, texture, lighting and color.   I use my talents, creative insight and experience to create a gift for each and every client.

As a trusted interior designer, space planner, project manager and retail boutique owner, my professional background has equipped me with solid, practical skills and a deep understanding of what it takes to deliver outstanding results aligned with the customer’s goals and aspirations.
