Beth DeBonis, Designer

Creating a space that is functional and beautiful!  

For me, a successful design elevates the client's experience within their space. A well designed layout with wonderful flow is key; a creation of 3-dimensional spatiality. From there, bringing in textures, textiles, a mix of materials, and unique elements help to layer and create interest and bring in the client's personality.
