Our Story

Who we are.

the mood or feeling of a particular place”



You have a mood and feeling in your dreams for your space,  but all the decisions to make that happen can be a little overwhelming, and maybe you're worried that you will lose your vision if you hand it over to a designer.

You don't have to worry if you put your trust in me.  I have worked with dozens of clients over the country to help them bring their visions to reality.  The combination of my clients' dreams and my expertise create the best space possible.  And we will have a easy fun time with the process.

Jill has helped me decorate my home several times in my life! She is the one person I trust completely in choosing wallpaper, paint colors, furniture, and furniture placement. Jill is amazingly brilliant at interior design, she most definitely met her calling. Jill helped me choose a wood floor for my family room (replacing carpet). The floor looks incredible as does the new wall paper in my entryway. She’s a rock star!!!!

I was born to a contractor and a very stylish lady.  Construction and style are in my DNA.  I received my formal training at O'More College of Design in Tennessee.  I worked for commercial interior designers while living in Nashville and was actively involved in the American Society of Interior Designers.  Upon returning home to Texas, I opened Ambiance in 1998 as a retail location.  Now that the constraints of a big store are behind me I am having more fun working closely with my clients on remodeling and new construction projects through my studio.
