How did you start Eclectic Home?
In 2000, after designing and having a difficult time finding unique and diverse products for my clients, I realized it was time for me to open my own store.

What makes your offering unique?
I am obsessed with design and I love to mix periods and styles in a way that looks highly evolved and collected. I offer classic design elements with an updated modern twist.

What differentiates you?
When clients engage us, they’re gaining our expertise, experience and ability to access trade resources. We listen to our clients and create an environment that reflects who they are and how they live. We can work with any style from French Country, Mid-Century to contemporary environments.

What are you working on?
Condo projects, Creole cottage renovation, new home construction and a bank lobby and offices.

Tell us about some of your favorite projects?
Blue Plate Artist Lofts was one of my favorite projects because we used custom made pieces inspired by the building’s architecture.

What are clients asking for right now?
Clients are asking for a mix of styles, and more tailored and less complicated spaces.

We hear your daughter is joining the business?
I can’t tell you how happy I am that she decided to move back to New Orleans after graduating from SCAD (Savannah College of Art and Design). She has amazing talent.
