Hi I’m Betsy

Home enthusiast, wife, mother of 3 grown sons, lover of travel, music and casual beach living!

“I definitely believe, lack of funds makes you more inventive and creative! Even with financial challenges in those early years……….…. I still wanted a pretty home!”

I have been in the interior design field for over 30 years and have worked from home, set up shop in a brick and mortar building, moved my business from Colorado to NYC and now to Florida and the one constant, is I still LOVE creating and designing interiors for myself and for you!

My design specialty is Modern Coastal Style (that I find to be very adaptable to other styles) and my design delivery is through an ONLINE (or E Design) Platform, so it doesn’t really matter where you live, but local clients have the advantage of having me show up at their house!

My design philosophy is quite simple: stay true to YOU, but in a classic and timeless way. When we do this, there is longevity to our furnishings but it allows for flexibility and trendiness when we want that too.

BIO–the part no one reads!

I went to college in Colorado and earned a BS in Architectural Design, married and with my husband, we remodeled and lived through lots of renovations, the ‘sweat equity’ way and built 2 of our own custom homes.

 As a member of ASID, American Society of Interior Designers,  23 years now,  I am required to complete 20 CEU’s every 2 years.  ASID is the oldest professional organization in the U.S. for Interior Designers.

After working from home, I opened a little design studio upstairs in a carpet store.  I  carried designer fabrics, offered custom draperies to my services and with access to tile and carpet, it was great for my bigger projects.

After leaving Colorado, we moved to NYC and lived 2 blocks from Lincoln Center and Central Park with Pottery Barn on the first floor of our building.  (now that was fun!)  I worked for the local ASID NYMetro chapter, took some consulting jobs and classes at NYSID and enjoyed the BEST shopping and restaurants to keep any girl happy!

In 2016, I was certified through Maria Killam’s coursework as a True Color Expert!  It’s been a game changer!

After 3 years of city life, we decided to move to Florida, build a home (hello bbq’s + patios again!) and be closer to family here. We now call this beautiful surfing town New Smyrna Beach, Florida HOME.  There is a downside to living here……….all 3 sons live in Brooklyn and NJ.  We love to visit but we are also enjoying the beaching and boating life here in the Sunshine state!

E-DESIGN

I’m really excited about it because I think this will only be getting more popular as a way to deliver INTERIOR DESIGN SERVICES so check out my page and let me know what you think!  I plan to have more on-line services available in the coming year….so stay tuned!
