Carol KirchnerOwner

Building your dream home is really no different than building a business from scratch. With a degree in marketing and a career in communications, Carol decided after years in Corporate America to take her passion and turn it into a successful design business.

With a strong commitment to style and a cultivated eye for finishing touches, Carol has created a new direction in design. There are so many elements of design but they all relate back each persons unique style. “I love the process of getting to know the client and their style and creating their dream home. My goal is for the client to walk through the door and say, I love, love love my home.”
