Paula joined Studio 109 Designs in 2006 and, due to her multitude of talents, she now leads our design team. Having been educated as both an Architectural Drafter and an Interior Designer, Paula is versatile in all aspects of design. Her background enables her to recognize that each space requires a unique solution and conceptualize how that solution will be achieved from its preliminary design stage through the final design.
Paula assists our clients as they choose interior finishes, accent lighting, furniture, and fabrics, Paula enjoys creating environments which become memorable experiences for our clients and the people they serve.
“The experience is why clients use designers in the first place. When creating the perfect space, it’s all about the feeling; whether it’s the client’s personal style, a company’s brand, or a homeowner’s personality. I take pleasure in creating spaces that are functional, meet the client’s needs, and are still aesthetically pleasing. My personal design preferences include contemporary styles with clean lines and arts & crafts that include woodwork with warm, rich colors. I love color! I believe that color has so much influence on a space and the interaction one should have with that space. I love what I do and this passion helps drive me. Watching a project go from sketch paper to life and knowing that I was a small part of this process is what motivates me.”
In addition to creating beautiful environments, Paula also works with our Retail Branding Division to create graphic designs and branding elements to enhance a client’s brand and awareness in their community. She is also an expert in working with clients who are undergoing a name change.
Paula’s favorite quote: “Keep your heels, head, and standards high.”
