Meet toraé, principal designer

I am a Florida based Interior Style Designer who was born and raised in New York City. My passion has always been for creating “WOW” looks for people, homes and events. My life desire is to make people feel good by what I create for them. I have always enjoyed creating looks since I was a child. I enjoy elevating people and places to new levels through external appearances.

Being a designer is not just a job, for me, it is a lifestyle. Everywhere I go, I am constantly thinking of looks that could enhance a person or space. When I see colors, fabrics and personal styles my heart skips a beat as I am excited about what I can do with them. I started out as an event planner, owning my own business, where I worked on several events including fashion shows, corporate events, birthday parties, baby showers and weddings. Although, I loved what I did, I soon realized that I was not passionate about the planning piece of the business and decided to close the business down and go back to school.

I joined the corporate world after obtaining my BA from Rollins College, in Organizational Communication. It was then that I started my career as a Human Resources Manager and worked for a few industries before my last role at a major retailer. It was here where I was surrounded by trending looks for homes, places and people. It was here that I had my “ahh haa” moment and realized that I was not walking in my God given purpose. I know that I was created to uplift people by helping their visions come to fruition through interior design. I am a true believer that it is better to give then to receive as it always brings my heart joy when I can give a client a reality to their dream.
