Lydia started her design career in the early 80’s as a general contractor’s designer in Naples, Florida. Her role, in addition to designing the model homes, was to work with clients in selecting all of the materials needed for building their new home. This included kitchen and bath tiles, countertops, flooring for all rooms, fixtures, lighting, cabinetry, hardware and finishes, paint and trim colors. She also coordinated the outside materials including the shingles or roof tiles, window finishes, and paint and trim colors.
Years later Lydia moved to the mountains in North Carolina where she had the opportunity to design homes and cabins in a variety of styles. Modern Mountain, Rustic Chic and Eclectic Farmhouse to name a few. She and her clients had fun finding descriptive words to define their style. Sometimes if they had trouble describing their style Lydia would ask to see their closet. The colors, patterns, and types of clothing would give Lydia clues as to what they liked. She would then create a design board pulling fabrics, colors, and items together to create a beautiful room or home. Traveling between North Carolina and Florida, Lydia is enjoying helping her clients create beautiful homes they will love and cherish every day.
