Eclectic
For Tabitha, design is storytelling. Projects are journeys—and ideally, clients join her to embark on them. Finished spaces tell a story, too: like characters in a play, they interact. Like plotlines, they make inherent sense—coming full circle in the end. This all takes place in a context of eclectic lawlessness, with client preferences and needs forming the only guideline. “I want to love everything all at once. I don’t want to be bound by styles or rules, design dos or don’ts. I like to play and explore and feel out looks until it’s right,” the designer says, adding that she’s striving for her projects to feel fundamentally balanced in the end: calm rising out of anarchy. That’s how she knows they’re done. For this eclectic designer, Decorilla personifies eclecticism. “I can help build our company from anywhere, and work with clients from everywhere. It’s the ultimate in freedom,” she says. Clients agree. “Tabitha has great ideas, and has come up with a number of very creative solutions for my NYC apartment—meeting my vision, needs, and budget every time,” says one. “When [our house] was done, it felt like we designed it ourselves—minus the stress,” says another. A third raves about the bold new look, which they could not have achieved on their own with a few tepid picture frames. In addition to tackling her own projects with Decorilla, Tabitha answers client questions and manages other in-home consultants. She has a B.A. in interior design from the University of Kentucky. She lives in Kentucky with her husband and daughter.  

Describe your go-to style:

My go to style has to be eclectic. I love to mix found objects with family heirlooms and contemporary pieces.

What’s your prediction for the next big trend in design?

More color and pattern! I think we are starting to see a shift from a more monochromatic pallet to spaces with intense color saturation and a mixture of bold patterns and rich textures.

What drives you to design?

Space is important. Our homes and our offices, our restaurants and our shops. They all matter. Ideally space should be somewhat transformative to our moods and perceptions when we enter. Being a part of this dialog of space and what space means is what drives me to design.
