Cindy received a B.A. in Visual Communications. After graduating, her career took a different path, and she spent the next 10+ years in the insurance industry servicing and selling to Fortune 1000 companies.
In 2001 Cindy combined her business skills, creativity, and passion for decorating and worked as a designer for a renowned Chicago area home furnishings retailer. In addition to assisting hundreds of walk-in clients with their home furnishing needs, she completed over 100 in-home consultations followed by in-store design presentations. In 2005 Cindy took her passion one step further and started her own decorating business.
Cindy's vast experience has given her an understanding of the needs of a broad range of clients. She's created room styles from contemporary to formal traditional utilizing a wide variety of budgets. She enjoys finding great values and getting her clients the most “bang for their buck,” without sacrificing quality. She views the design process as a partnership with her clients and believes candid and ongoing communication is essential to a successful project. Her role is to act as a guide and a resource, educating clients by explaining the “whys” behind each of her recommendations. Her design philosophy is, “It’s not about me;” She appreciates all design styles and believes a client’s home should reflect their personal style, not hers.
Cindy's passionate about her work (although it doesn’t feel like work!), and committed to ensuring her clients are happy with the end result of their project. Being able to help others is the icing on the cake.
Cindy's loves include chocolate, red wine, and spending time with her teenage nieces. She enjoys the hustle and bustle of city life and resides in Chicago.
