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!
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!
It’s been a joy to serve Smithe clients as a senior designer since 2006. With my life long passion for all things interior design and Smithe’s abundant combination of products from more than 200 manufactures make it a breeze to create rooms which wow.
My job is to use my personal tastes and experiences to be my client’s avatar in finding furniture which suite their personality and style. Skillful space planning, an eye for pleasing color combos as well as good problem solving skills all come together in creating unique spaces in synergy with my clients. I love my job here at Smithe and would be so pleased to help you with your next design project.
Beautify, Create, Design! It’s exciting to get a new project every day and expand it to the next level, aesthetically as well as functionally, by using design elements. I can help you transform any ordinary room into something extraordinary that you will never get tired of showing off. My passion for design has always come from my client’s innovative ideas for a fresh new start. My background at Harrington College of Design has trained me to find the best solution for any size project; from selecting appropriate fabrics and colors, to complimentary furniture pieces to incorporating adjacent rooms that will enhance your space. Let’s get started!
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.
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.
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.
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.
