Hello My Name Is: Maci

Last week we began our introductions and started with our founder and one of our Interior Designer Partners, Kristina. Next up is our CEO and other Interior Designer partner.

Hello, my name is Maci!

I am the wife to my equally, (If not more) creative film-maker husband and mom to my goofy, sweet and ball of joy daughter. We live a busy life involved in our church ministries and love to simply live our life, even if it is a mundane Tuesday evening playing on the driveway with sidewalk chalk. My family is a huge part of who I am and is one of the main reasons I decided to chase my dream of becoming an Interior Designer. 

I grew up as your total "basic" girl, I loved dolls, barbies, playing house, dress up, dancing in the middle of the cold-de-sac, etc. One thing that made me a little different was my constant need to fulfill an additional creative outlet. I was well known for constantly re-arranging my room on any given Friday night, asking to redecorate my room as my birthday gift, painting the walls of my room as an activity when my friends were over, sewing my own duvet covers and hand-stitching my own stuffed dolls. For years I thought of many different ways I could fulfill this creativity by means of my career but nothing ever stuck or felt quite right.

It wasn't until almost 10 years in the professional world that I decided to set a personal goal to give my own business a real go for it before I entered the next decade of my life. As fate would have it, at the same time Kristina was looking for a partner in her interior design business.

As acquaintances for years, my friendship grew with Kristina when our paths finally crossed working in customer support at the same web software company. This is where we not only expanded the depths of our friendship but we learned how to work together in a professional setting.

When Kristina asked me to join her in this journey I didn't even think twice before saying "Absolutely, YES!" After joining Kristina as a partner in KM Design Co., we went straight into consultations and projects as a team. We then decided it was time to take the business to the next level. We began strategizing about expanding to a full service interior design firm, with an online and social media presence as our platform.

My passion for interior design invigorates my soul. I don't believe interior design is simply making a space look beautiful for a client, but it is about creating a space that makes you feel and experience! What I mean by that is, each client has a different purpose for their home, and each room can have a different purpose as well. I thrive off of helping a client unveil their desired purpose and then create a space that fulfills this purpose with their unique thumb print, not mine.

As a busy mom I believe interior design can not only be beautiful but practical as well. In a busy house hold, organization is key, but with my background in profession organizing I believe organization can be accomplished with effortless style simultaneously. 

I cannot wait for you to join us on this journey! We are excited to share with your our experience, insight and inside scoop into interior design and sometimes just life in general!
