Decorating for Today's Interiors
Hello! My name is Catherine Bales, certified interior decorator through and member of C.I.D. (Certified Interior Decorators) International.I have an absolute passion for interiors of all scales and varieties and especially how I can leave them better then they were before.I am motivated particularly by home interiors, where I can decorate anywhere from a single room to an entire house, to make all the homes inhabitants WANT to dwell in the amazing surroundings they find themselves in.The home is such a vital place for so many of our day's activities and based on this fact, I am completely motivated to make the home a dwelling place that one cant wait to enjoy.While I believe in the use of bright and vibrant colors, furnishings, textiles and accessories, I am always more then willing to hear where my client would like to go with their home decor project and how I can best make their imaginations come alive.I look forward to working with you and making your home decor dreams come true!
While my background is in Print and Visual Journalism from the Walter Cronkite School of Journalism and Mass Communication at Arizona State University,my interests went in the direction of the education field, which I have worked in since 2007. Having always had a huge love for home interiors/decor as well as with the rather synonymous industry of fashion however, I have put my interests into action to become educated and certified in Interior Decorating. My current credentials of interior decor are through Certified Interior Decorators International(C.I.D.) and am currently working on a further training through QC Career School's interior decorating program. To date, my interior decorating experiences have included planning my own platinum wedding at the Arizona Biltmore Resort and Spa, a Waldorf Astoria Hotel, for 200 guests that still has people raving ; a Great Gatsby themed outdoor sit down Marque birthday party for 40 guests; a home decor project that included guest bedroom and bath along with master bedroom and bath and lastly; I had a remodel project done on 2.5 baths in my own residences that again have received rave reviews time and time.
