Elizabeth’s years spent traveling and exploring the world in her early twenties heavily influenced her creative style. What started as a volunteer trip to the Galapagos islands turned into a year’s long travel adventure that she credits with cracking open her creativity and developing her passion for design. From the rich history of textile weaving in the Andes mountains, to the timeless beauty of French architecture, Elizabeth’s appreciation for classic design, and love for color and pattern was solidified.
After returning to the US, Elizabeth began working in interior design while continuing her education at Chicago’s Harrington College of Design. Elizabeth opened her namesake firm in 2013 after working for some of the city’s top design firms. She currently lives in the Lincoln Park neighborhood of Chicago with her husband and two little boys. On weekends you can typically find her hanging out at a local park, wrangling the kids!
