Can be a dare devil on four wheelers & roller coasters | Loves to work in the yard | Strongly believes actions speak louder than words My motto is… LIVE FREE….I wear a bracelet my Brother and Sister-in-law gave me as a gift to remind myself of it every day!  I buy too much…. clothes and shoes…and probably lipstick… Antique or modern…I love using a combination of both antique and modern. I feel it adds dimension and character to any space! Favorite material/textures…It’s’ all in the small details which as a whole complete and create a more custom design!  I enjoy adding wall treatments especially Mica on ceilings. It can dramatically change the look of a room. Another detail that can make or break any room is custom fabrications….the possibilities are endless with all the beautiful fabrics and trims available and you receive fabrications that no one else will have which is always a cool aspect of working with a designer. My perfect vacation would be… A week of total relaxation with my loved ones probably some place tropical with a little adventure. First thing I notice when I walk into a room? I’m definitely a furniture guru….I find myself checking out furniture, lamps, lighting and even wall treatments and naming the companies of each piece in my head… I don’t know why but it gives me satisfaction when I’m right…ha!  What vendor is your current favorite? I love the edgy designs of Global Views and seem to use them as a go to for great lamps and accessories. Click here for Cassidy’s Bio and Contact...
