“I am originally from Lima, Peru. I moved to the United States on 1991 to attend college, earning a BA in Hospitality Management and a Master's Degree in International Business from NOVA University.
It was 15years ago when I decided to step out the corporate world and embrace my passion for design professionally. With a Sales and Marketing work experience and an Interior Design education I was confident and ready for my new Journey and Launched an Interior Decorating Business through Décor & You.
In this industry, you have to continually stay up with the trends and be aware of the latest products available in the market.
“About ten years ago I found myself doing more renovation work and that's when I became involved with D&B Tile. This arrangement works well for me because D&B carries such a wide range of products from many different manufacturers and offers great prices for all budgets. I work mainly from the Sawgrass headquarters location but will certainly travel to any of D&B's nine locations throughout South Florida.
“During the recent recession, many homeowners elected to stay in their homes rather than move. This brought about a trend toward renovation and decorating. Most of this seems to be concentrated in bathrooms and kitchens. Currently this accounts for approximately 70% of my work. We are seeing a lot of interest in glass tiles at the moment and one of the biggest trends seems to be industrial contemporary which incorporates the stone and wood looks that are so popular today.
“I spend a lot of time with my clients to understand their specific tastes, the key is to LISTEN”. Here at D&B we have a wide range of products from which to choose. Customers can see many of the tiles actually installed in vignettes right here in the showroom. D&B also has a line of designer tiles which are truly unique and well priced. I have customers who redecorate every two or three years. Others will keep a specific look much longer. That's why I have to be careful about assessing their wants and needs and matching specific products and styles to their budget.
“In the South Florida area, tile, stone and marble are major design elements especially in the residential market. My affiliation with D&B gives me access to a wide palette of products from around the world with many different price ranges. Naturally, this allows me to better serve my customers.”
