Early in my career I worked for a premier interior design firm in Chicago where I lead and managed the interior build-out of luxury residences across the top of our Chicago Skyline. It was through this firm that I had the opportunity to develop my skills as a designer and project manager, working with our clients to take them through all phases of a project – designing, building/remodeling, and furnishing their home to complete a true work of art.
While I loved the thrill of building luxury residences in the city, I was blessed when motherhood became my new adventure. As our family grew we moved to the western suburbs where I started my own Interior Design Company, EGI Design Inc., in 2012.
My projects range in size and scope from furniture make-overs to full house re-models in the northern and western suburbs. I’ve worked with real-estate investors to over-haul properties for optimal re-sale, sometimes doubling the size of the home. Kitchen and bath remodels have become a specialty as I particularly enjoy the intricacy of both cabinet and tile design and the daily function of these spaces.
I love what I do because it combines my passion for design, my excitement for problem solving, and my genuine interest in people. As a mother of four I have deepened my own interest in home life – in the idea of creating spaces to really live in, not just to look at. “Form follows function” has always resonated with me. To me, beauty in design is authentic if it is developed first through the foundation of good space planning which is unique to the lifestyle of those living in the home. Then the finishes, colors, and textures applied can successfully complete the design.
I enjoy working closely with my clients to personalize their home so that my design is a reflection of their aesthetic preferences and practical needs. It is important to me to provide the highest quality of work and to make the design process enjoyable for everyone involved. I very much look forward to your call to discuss your next project. 630-930-2752.
