Let's Style Your Space

Hi there! I'm Patti, an interior decorator and home staging specialist.
I’m excited to have you here! I’m looking forward to working with you to design and decorate the home of your dreams. A place that you look forward to being in, to coming home to; a place to enjoy with family and friends where messes are not a disaster and real life goes on in style.

I love having a comfortable home where I can spend time with my family (my favorite people in the world!). I want to inspire you to create a home that you can’t wait to be in, and to spend time with your family and friends too

I first noticed my love for interior decorating and design 35 years ago! Fresh out of high school, I enrolled in college for interior design. Just before classes started, an advisor talked me out of my chosen career path and advised that I get a degree in Accounting. Being young and taught that adults always know best, I followed his advice. I got my degree and landed a job at a printing company. I was overjoyed to learn that my accounts would be some of the biggest names in the home design field-furniture, fixtures, wall and floor coverings. As I moved up in the printing company I became a project manager/customer service rep for these same accounts. I got to witness the printing of their catalogs and see firsthand what the new styles for the season would be!
Naturally, when I retired from the printing company, I DID pursue my original dream. I am a graduate of the QC Design School of Interior Decorating and Home Staging-and I couldn’t be happier to share my creative knowledge with you.
Let me help you create your favorite place to be-your home. A place where you can enjoy your life with your family and friends. My favorite people to be with are my family! They have provided the support and inspiration for many of my decorating ideas. They also encouraged me to begin a new chapter of my life by doing what I love to do-create beautiful home spaces. They urged me to go all in and create my business, Desire 2 Design.
Desire 2 Design was established because you need a place that works for everyone; where there is room for real life to happen without worrying about getting it too messy. Let me inspire and guide you to decorate your home in a way that can be lived in-not just looked at. Let’s work together!
