One thing that makes me happy is seeing people live in a beautiful home. At the end of the day, we all need a place to relax and enjoy our surroundings. As a Smithe designer I know I can help you achieve these goals. I would like to meet you and help inspire you for a new look in your surroundings.
Designing is my passion, and finding creative solutions to meet my clients’ needs, addressing the delicate interplay of light, color, texture, and pattern has allowed me to succeed as a designer and specifically address clients’ needs so that they are left with the room of their dreams.
I have a dream job at Walter E. Smithe! I am able to indulge my passion for design and create wonderful rooms for my clients.
With 30 plus years in professional design, including 3 years at Walter E. Smithe, I offer experience, creativity, vision and product knowledge along with the ability to connect with my clients and their design needs. With my personalized approach, I give my clients rooms that are practical, beautiful and timeless, that will also match their budget and lifestyle. I love finding solutions to all design dilemmas. Let’s create your dream together!
For the past twenty years, I have had the pleasure of working with clients to create and beautify their homes through Interior Design.
Using classical theories of proportion and scale, they have seen their rooms transformed into extraordinary and unique spaces, regardless of whether their style is Traditional, Contemporary, Eclectic, or somewhere in between.
As a Smithe designer, I love taking the time to help a client find the perfect piece to fit their style, color, space and budget. My goal is to help you design your space so that you love walking into every day. Having a degree from Harrington Institute of Design, I have an eye for color, space planning and unique furniture. I always love finding furniture that works well together and gives you that WOW when you walk in the room. I would love to help you find your WOW - call me for an appointment today.
I am an experienced Senior Designer in our Lincolnshire showroom. My commitment is to create beautiful, inviting, comfortable and functional spaces to fit in with each individual style and budget. I truly believe that living in a space you love makes all the difference in your daily life. I would love to work with you on your next design project, for your home or office, be it large or small. My background includes receiving a BFA in Interior Design along with the skilled practice I have used over the last 7 years in the industry. This has given me a broad range of knowledge to help me better to assist you here at Walter E Smithe. Let’s set up your first appointment!
My fascination with all things color started in grade school. Armed with a box of 64 crayons I created elaborate abstracts every day instead of taking naps! As the years passed it became evident to everyone around me that my obsession with color was linked to my future and eventually led to my degree in color theory. I use this in-depth understanding of color in every space I design to create the mood my client has envisioned during our home consultation.
