My education in interior design started at a young age growing up in Dallas, Texas. I was influenced very early on by my mother who was an ardent and eclectic decorator. I frequently redecorated our house with her, endlessly rearranging the furniture, shopping for that new accessory, and selecting fabrics to sew drapes or upholster a chair. My parents entertained frequently, so much attention was placed on creating a beautiful and welcoming home.
As a former Vice President Creative Director for international home and fashion brands, I have designed interior room sets for numerous editorials and photoshoots around the world. With over 20 years of experience in home interiors, I’ve had the good fortune to live and work in some incredible locations that still inspire me to this day.
With this early education in decorating and extensive travel exploring other cities, countries and cultures, I have a great respect for the beauty and historic value in older furnishings as well as new trends. I love to punctuate vintage pieces in with new furniture and accessories creating a harmonious balance and interesting mix.
As the owner of Posh & Patina Interiors I am proud to bring my holistic design approach to Madison. My greatest satisfaction comes from creating homes that are inviting, beautiful and comfortable, and most of all, they reflect the personalities of my clients.
