To be a successful designer you must first be a good listener. Great design comes from knowing your clients needs, desires to transform their living space. Maybe they are wanting to just update a room or transform several spaces. Either way, by understanding who they are is the right step to a successful relationship and great design.
My love of fabrics and design came at a early age. I remember reading Nate Burkas book and him describing the feeling when his parents allowed him to have the basement for his own bedroom. He was elated at the possibilities of what he could do . I can remember seeing spaces as a child and in my mind I was rearranging them. Nothing has changed after all these years I still get excited about transforming clients living spaces and seeing the excitement on their faces and the new excitement they have about their home. I started the love of fabrics when I worked for a clothing manufacturing which lead me to Calvin Klein. Like good home design dressing women was a great pleasure also. It is always about the transformation. Before opening The Blue Cottage in St. Petersburg FL. I have worked with CHD Interiors for the last five years. There were two locations in Murrells Inlet, Mt Pleasant near Charleston SC. A wealth of knowledge and experience was gained as I worked with many clients. I am still working with clients in SC and NC as I am operating The Blue Cottage.
It is important to make house feel like a home. This is achieved in many ways. From the right wood & metal finishes, fabric, paint color down to the right accessories. Good design is all about the right choices details. I look forward to meeting and helping you in transforming your living space. At the Blue Cottage Home we believe a home should be a happy and beautiful place. Let us help you make that happen.
