About Paula

I have a passion for interior design and a fundamental belief that you should Love Where You Live.  The vast majority of people spend hours away from home – thus home should be your sanctuary.  Whether you are looking for a calm and serene escape or a vibrant and colorful home that inspires…our goal is to help get you there. 

Growing up in New England I established a love for “everything home” at an early age.  My mother always seemed to have contractors and designers at the home always working on “the next project”.  I loved observing and learning about everything they did and even in my youth watching relentlessly the PBS program “This Old House”.  Little did I know then that I would live out a dream by working with them on a project later in life!

With more than 19 years of design experience in the greater DC Metro area, I take pride in providing my clients with a design experience that will not only address their design needs and vision but offers creative, personal design solutions.  Smart, stylish interior solutions start by working within the framework of my clients functional and budgetary needs ultimately creating spaces they love and feel connected to!

Clients enjoy the personalized service, custom designs and the products that I bring together especially for them.  From the onset of our initial meeting, my goal is to understand your needs and wishes and parlay those into designs that reflect you… yet you never could have pulled together on your own!   Great design coupled with great communication and customer service makes for a seamless and enjoyable process.  PT Designs always “pushes the envelope” …just a little ~ so that you end up with spaces that WOW!

Whether your style is modern or traditional…rustic or glam…or anything in between; my years of experience, vast array of product knowledge and access for everything “home”  allows us to pull together design solutions that create spaces that are unique to you yet are on trend and offer longevity.

Over the years, I have had the opportunity to work with such notable programs and projects such as the PBS Emmy award winning program This Old House on the Milton Project (Milton, MA),  LIFE Magazines first “Dream House” outside of Atlanta, GA, and two designs for the Washington Post House Calls Designs.  In addition to these more high profile projects, I have thoroughly enjoyed working with hundreds of clients to address design problems and create beautiful spaces to live in.

No project is too small or large.  If you are looking for a designer who listens, provides an enjoyable process and seamless implementation call now to schedule your initial complimentary consultation…it is as simple as that!  From a simple window treatment over the kitchen sink to whole room/house designs…  Your home could be next!
