After spending years in real estate finance and founding her own building and design company in 2013, Sarah had cultivated an undeniable expertise in the practicalities of creating a home. Armed with experience and an eye for aesthetics, Sarah turned her focus to the artistic side of interiors. What began as a one-woman design studio quickly became an entire collective of experts and a brick-and-mortar that fueled Sarah’s passions, namely promoting local artists, creating custom furnishings, and stocking one-of-a-kind antique and vintage pieces. The Collective storefront became the embodiment of Sarah’s aesthetic and her foundational beliefs about home—that it should be inviting, attainable, and uniquely yours.
As owner and principal designer, Sarah leads her team with a laid-back process and an eclectic Southern style. She specializes in high-end new construction homes, renovations, and luxury furnishing projects. With a full-service residential design studio team, a curated shop, and a line of custom furnishings, what Sarah offers her local community is a holistic and inimitable approach to interiors.Featured Work
