About Us

BTH Designs began in 2018, after I received my Interior Design certification from the New York Institute of Art & Design and my partner Chuck and I were ready for something new.  While house rehabbing is our passion, Interior Design is the common denominator that drives many of the decisions. 

After holding a real estate license for a short time, I developed a deep passion for real estate and Interior Design.  During the time I had my real estate license, I became a certified Home Stager in order to help clients create beautiful spaces that sell quickly.   After selling real estate for only a year, I had the opportunity to return to my corporate job (an offer I couldn’t turn down at the time), so I shelved my real estate hat and returned to corporate America. 

After several more years at my corporate job, I couldn’t shake the desire to do something with real estate and design.  That is when I approached Chuck about my desire to get my Interior Design certification. Since Chuck already had a background in architecture, I was hoping we could do some dabbling in real estate. We always talked about getting a few small rental properties and we both loved the idea of bringing life to older, rundown homes. So, after some late-night conversations over wine, it seemed like the right thing to do.

About BTH Designs

“We knew in our hearts that we wanted to save tired houses and make them into beautiful homes again, but we didn’t want to be ordinary house flippers.  So, after more conversations (and more wine), we keyed in on ‘Buy and Enhance’.  That sounded more like what we set out to do – to buy houses and enhance them to be beautiful and functional homes again.  I am the Interior Designer, Stager, Stylist, and Accountant and Chuck is the Architect, Space Planner, Engineer, Nitpicker, and the CEO (Carries Everything Out).  Together, we make houses into beautiful homes.”

I don’t pretend to ascribe to any single design style because all designs are beautiful. And besides, how can you be a successful Interior Designer if you only lean towards one style?

Having said this, I do tend to gravitate to comfortable, relaxing designs that are timeless, with a soft muted color palette. In contrast to that, I can enjoy a loud and colorful palette, if it is done properly.

The same goes with stuff – I’m a ‘less is more’ kind of gal. But if I walk into a beautifully decorated room that has a lot of stuff that is smartly organized, I can fall in love.

I like to create character in a space by using texture, layers, color, or style and combining a little old with new to create a bit of eclectic charm.

I also feel it is important to have one or two standout and eye-catching pieces in a room, whether it’s a piece of furniture, drapes, rugs or just an accessory.

But my primary goal for designing success is that the design must compliment how the room or space will be used.

Chuck is an extreme perfectionist, so he keeps me grounded in all that I do (i.e., nitpicker).

He will study up on an idea that we discuss to design or space plan until he comes up with the perfect solution.

He will not sign off on doing a design or plan if he wouldn’t want it done in his own home.

He is also our expert on functionality design as he believes functionality should always drive design (we have had long discussions on this topic).

Since I am a very visual person, seeing something rendered out helps me to visualize the final space design.  Most people who aren’t studying or working in Interior Design have problems visualizing a completed space in their head.   Whether it be for color choices, furniture placement or just deciding on accessories, e-Design is the best tool to help bring the vision of a room design together.
