What is your favorite project you've worked on so far?

"A mixed-use project that will incorporate office space, residential lofts, as well as an event space."

It's just in the beginning phase, but I am very excited to be working on a complete renovation of a historic building located in a small downtown in North Georgia. It is a mixed-use project that will incorporate office space, residential lofts, as well as an event space. It is the perfect project to combine my love of historic preservation with hospitality!

You like to say that "good design is for everyone," can you elaborate on what you mean by that?

"Good design can change the way you feel in a space, effect the well being of you and your family, or even enhance how you function on a daily basis."

There is a stigma that "Interior Design" is only for the wealthy, whether it is for their homes or extravagant hotels they may visit. I want to be sure A. Paige Design extends this service to those who are less fortunate by way of organizations such as Kirkwood Cares. Good design can change the way you feel in a space, impact you and your family's well-being, or even enhance how you function on a daily basis. Good design is for everyone, no matter your socioeconomic status.

What are some basic steps anyone can take to make their home a more inviting space?

"Your space is ultimately for you and should reflect how you want to feel and what you find inspiring."

Your space is ultimately for you and should reflect how you want to feel and what you find inspiring. I suggest to start with the layout of your space. Is it serving you? Re-arranging the furniture layout can help open up a space and welcome you in. I would also suggest finding a way to make it unique. Whether it is by refinishing a piece of furniture you have been hanging onto, or by creating a focal point with art and objects - your space should help tell your story!
