Born and raised in the Sacramento area, Lori has continually seen the changes that have come to our region and has a passion for its growth through innovation and new construction.
It all began as she flipped through her grandma’s fabric books while watching her work on a client’s project. She was probably four years old and already had strong opinions about what looked good. You can say creativity is in her blood and it continued to develop over the years. Fast forward to college and she graduated with honors from the Interior Design & Marketing program at Sacramento State University with a Minor in Photography.
Now, with over ten years of experience in the industry, she blends her knowledge of design with her passion for finding joy in the everyday elements of home. She is a certified and award-winning interior designer with expertise in high-end residential, commercial and builder projects including custom homes, full remodels, and model home and new builder developments throughout California. While creating livable and timeless designs, her attention to detail from conception to completion ensures beauty and function go hand in hand.
A love of travel and keen eye for graphics continue to inspire her projects with color and contrast, mixed patterns and palettes and contribute to the innovative design process. Her love of curating each design is grounded in the belief that a home should tell a story in a creative and inspiring way and be a place that epitomizes the joy of living.
Lori is a Certified Interior Designer in the State of California having passed the California Council for Interior Design Certification (CCIDC) IDEX test as well as a member of the American Society of Interior Designers (ASID).
Even though Katie has a full-time job at an architect firm in town, we love to collaborate when we can! As a Sacramento native, Katie’s love for her home has planted her forever in the Northern California region with its central location to enjoy mountain hikes and beach days alike! From the Tahoe ski lodges to the beach bungalows along the coast, Katie strives to channel her inspiration towards making her clients’ houses into a place they can call home.
A University of Wyoming graduate with a B.S. in Architectural Engineering and a minor in Interior Design, Katie has always been drawn to the design + build community. She will be graduating next year with her Associates in Interior Design, adding to her educational background to further her career in this ever-growing field.
