Know Your Interior Designer

Like we always say, developing a good relationship with your designer is the most important factor if you want to be over-the-moon happy with your finished home design.  Let’s be honest, who doesn’t?  We don’t just want you to just like us, we want you to love us enough to tell us what you’re thinking!  Don’t be afraid to voice your opinion.  This is your home and we are not here to criticize or to force our preferences on you. You are the boss! 🙂  The point of all this is that we want to know you and for you to know us.

Our design team is filled with some of the best talent in the industry.  Each of our interior designers brings something special to the table and are all super qualified to bring your design dreams to life.  You’ve already met Stephanie in a previous post.  Next up, associate yourself with one of the smartest people we know,

I attended school close to home at Lamar University.  I received two bachelor degrees; one in Interior Design and the other in Graphic Design.  I graduated in 2007 and immediately went to work in the interior design field.  I have worked at several design firms, but I have been at Eklektik Interiors since the fall of 2010.

James and I have been married for three years on October 23, and there has not been a dull moment yet.  He works as a tankerman on a tug boat, and I am an interior designer at Eklektik Interiors.  He is gone for 20 days and home for 10 days.  When he is home we usually go boat riding, swimming or fishing on Lake Conroe.  We also hang out with friends and play cards, too.  James never meets a stranger so I am always meeting “new friends”.

We just moved into our house this summer.  I drew up a floor plan, and James built it.  The outside is complete as you can tell from the picture, but the inside is a different story.  We have one fully functional bathroom, complete bedroom, office and a halfway completed guest bedroom.  I have a temporary kitchen set up for now, but we will eventually get cabinets and new appliances.  James keeps asking where is the real silverware (technically it is in storage).  I told him, “When we get a real kitchen you can have real silverware”.  Until then, it is paper plates and plastic forks.

James and I have different taste in styles.  He loves traditional…the more carved wood the better.  I like more transitional, clean lines, and unique pieces.  But we both love the color blue as you can tell from the outside of the house.  The inside of the house is neutral with pops of blue.

Through the years, I have worked on many different styles.  We have been working on a lot of transitional projectsnot too heavy and cleaner lines.  I have been working on several remodel projects that are transitional, and there is never a dull moment because you never know what is behind the sheetrock.  Daniel and I usually are working together on the remodels. He has called me to come and look at what he found during demo…interesting to say the least.

Kathy and I recently won several awards in the Ferguson Design Competition for a kitchen remodel that we completed in the Houston Memorial area.  We actually remodeled the entire house (kitchen, master bathroom, master closet, powder room and secondary bathrooms), including paint and new flooring.  The master bathroom result was also fabulous!  It always feels good to help our clients see their imagination become a reality.
