  • Story By Design

    Commercial

    Is your brand making an impactful statement?

    My project management experience, and my love for people, make me a great liaison between owners, builders, architects, and tradesman. I am an experienced, professional, team player.

    Residential

    Is your own story being told in your home?

    Every interior design must integrate the client's story with the function and flow of each space. It is your story, and this requires deep listening. It must be done in a way the brings you joy, this requires a collaborative partner.

  • My Process

    The Problem

    Interior design can be complex.

    When it comes to interior design most people can't visualize the future, so they waste money and time experimenting on an outcome that fails to serve the intended purpose of the space.

    The Solution

    Discovery and Visualization

    I discover the story my clients are trying to tell, and then I show exactly what I see for the outcomes. This is where my skill becomes golden: when I show my clients 3-dimensional renderings of the future!

    Completion

    Completion

    Not only do I translate my client's dreams into a beautiful and impactful interior design, I also stay engaged with the project all the way to completion, and I work hard to see it done on time, on budget, and with real impact!

  • National Recognition

    In January of 2018 Architectural Digest named one of my design projects “the most beautiful coffee house in Colorado”. It was such an honor to receive recognition for the unique tiny-house design challenge at the Story Coffee Company.

    Local Expertise

    I was a featured interview in the SPRINGS magazine which celebrates the people, places and culture that define Colorado Springs; my interview is part of the Home Design Secrets feature in the Spring 2018 print issue. The story also included advise from a prominent architect, landscaper, and a builder.

    Commercial Miracle

    FH Beerworks I was asked to transform a warehouse once owned by a landscaping company into a first class brewhouse location with tap room and indoor/outdoor vent spaces. I celebrate proprietors, Travis and Niki Fields who were recently featured in Money magazine online for their "out of the box" approach to making business work during a pandemic.

    Urban Apartments

    Casa Mundi is a boutique apartment building in the blooming center of downtown Colorado Springs. Designed for the person who loves adventure, I created a distinct aesthetic that captured a global feel throughout but also included functional spaces like kayak and snowboard storage. Darsey Nicklasson developed the first apartment building in downtown Colorado Springs in 60 years.
