Designer Profile

Owning my own company had a serendipitous beginning. You might say it launched Davishire Interiors. I had completed my undergraduate studies in Business at the University of Tennessee. I attended New York University to work on my masters in Studio Art. I also attended the Art Institute of Pittsburgh and O'More College of Design for Interior Design. I had been plannning to start my own business and was diligently, prudently, working out the details. One day, however, at an auction, I purchased a beautiful Persian rug for which I had no use. That was the push I needed. It was 1985 and soon thereafter, I founded Davishire Interiors; the name was a result of combining my husband David's name with mine. My "magic carpet ride" had begun. I grew Davishire to serve a broad based clientele. One that is capable of taking a project from blueprint to completion. As an interior design professional, my job is to create interior space to function beautifully, within budget and on time. Davishire's showroom is filled with antiques, fine art and one of a kind accessories. Most recently, and a project I am very proud of, Davishire Interiors was selected to redesign the interior for the Tennessee Governor's Mansion.
