After graduating Magna Cum Laude with a Bachelor of Arts degree from Rhode Island College I pursued a career in the Home Improvement & Furnishings Industry. Over the past 12 years I have had extensive exposure to major name brand manufacturers, and have maintained a strong knowledge of current trends. I have decorated several homes from older, small and mid-sized cottages, ranches, colonials, and farmhouses to grand scale, new construction, and open concept waterfront properties. My commercial projects include lobbies/welcome areas, church offices, school faculty rooms, local airport military lounge, and president’s residence at Rhode Island College. I specialize in assisting clients with selecting custom fabrics and finishes, identifying wood species, and coordinating styles of furniture, cabinetry, flooring, and window treatments across a range of economically priced to high end. Other aspects of decorating include accessory and area rug recommendation, as well as paint color and lighting style suggestions.
