Our owner, Diane, does not call herself a designer, but rather “design enthusiast.” It is her belief that a “non-designer” can effectively lead and operate a firm because it allows each member to develop their own process. It is this sense of freedom that is the heart of Savvy and allows us to create spaces unique to each client. We admire Diane’s business principles, which she says have been directly inspired by the example her husband, Tim, has set in his own business.
Diane loves all aspects of the design process, and says she would drape her entire home in beautiful textiles if it were aesthetically appropriate; but her real inspiration comes from the love of her family. She is a natural-born “nester” and hostess. She desires to create surroundings that embrace you, calm the spirit and give a sense of coziness and serenity.
Diane’s kitchen is the heart of her home and it clearly reflects her design philosophy. It is truly a space that invites you in and makes you want to stay a while. It is the ideal place to gather with family, entertain friends or rejuvenate after a long day.
