WHO I AM
Decisions affecting the look and feel of one's home are among the hardest to make. It's not easy to imagine how a new sofa will co exist with an old side chair or opening up a small room once a wall is removed, or visualizing how paint colors will affect the room.
Patte's unique interior design, home staging, and photo styling experience allows her to arrange a room like a picture from a magazine layout. In fact she has freelanced as a prop stylist for photography since 1992 working on designing room sets and acquiring creative props for photo shoots for print and magazines. Patte opened her interior decorating business INTERIOR STYLIST in 2004. Patte's two businesses really complement each other.
"Growing up I knew that working in a creative field was for me and feel so lucky this is a business where I can create and share my talents with others."
Most people decorate their rooms but Patte concentrates on the spaces in between, such as an empty corner, stair landings, hidden spaces under the stairs. These special spaces need to be designed as well.
Patte develops long term relationships with her clients, listens and understands their needs. Together we create beautiful spaces.
Patte continues to stay current of design trends and attends design, color and staging seminars throughout the year. She has earned a CID degree and attended the American Academy of Art , IDCEC (Certificate of Color Theory & Creativity) and is a member of RESA (Real Estate Staging Association).
