// WHO WE ARE //
Here at the studio of SE DESIGN, we focus on designing homes people love being in and escaping to, homes that embrace a sense of our client's history, lifestyle and sense of adventure. Homes that are comfortably sophisticated, rich and relaxed. We create a living experience that's as beautiful as it is functional.
We take a friendly but highly organized approach to each client’s project. Great communication and project management keep our clients in the know each step of the way, without making them feel overwhelmed. Our client roster is comprised predominately of return business and client referrals, which is a strong testament to both our creative talent and work ethic. Most clients return for their next projects: new residences, vacation homes or just design refreshes. From selecting finishes and flooring to designing furniture to managing trades; for residential or commercial projects. While rooted in Oregon, we go anywhere we are needed. Whatever and wherever your design needs may be, our ultimate goal is to provide exceptional service to each client and deliver them their dream home. We truly love what we do and want all clients to feel nothing less than thrilled with their experience.
The marriage of technical expertise and creative sensibilities is a unique combination in the design industry, and one that Sarah brings to the SE DESIGN Studio. With the ability to not only conceptually design a home, but to expertly manage the implementation of these concepts. Sarah brings a wealth of custom design experience to every project as well as an extensive knowledge of construction and trade coordination.
A natural communicator, Sarah is a very skilled at working closely with builders and contractors and is an expert at translating a client's vision to her trade partners allowing her to maximize her resources and carry the vision through to completion. This trait also serves her well when doing remodels and smaller renovations.
Sarah, a Colorado native, is a designer who draws inspiration from around the world. Her and her partner, Kevin, who is also in the industry as a developer and home builder, are constantly in search for new ideas and inspiration. Leading an active lifestyle, they love to travel the world as well as take weekend trips to explore the valley's wineries and soak in the beauty of the Pacific Northwest and all it has to offer.
"Design should be sophisticated and rich, but relaxed and comfortable at the same time because pets, kids and red wine all exist in the real world." - Sarah
