MEET THE FOUNDER
Whitney Schones, Founder
It was clear from a young age that Whitney loved beautiful things—parties, florals, tablescapes and fashion. Her love for interior design started in her teens when she would help her grandmother decorate her home for the holidays. Armed with a sewing machine and the only fabric that she could afford, she created her own pillows and drapes and never turned away from her love of textiles.
With 15 years of experience in the industry, Whitney is a trendsetter when it comes to interiors and home decor. Her style is playful and cutting edge, while still coming across as timeless and classic. Her knowledge and experience is rooted in understanding what makes others tick and integrating nuanced details into a design that make them feel confident, comfortable and at ease.
Outside of making homes beautiful, Whitney spends much of her free time volunteering—serving on local boards and committees for fundraising galas. She also loves to get outdoors and golf and travel with her family.
Kyley Reger, Project Manager
Kyley joined the team in 2016 and her super-organized and efficient nature makes her the ultimate project manager. Backed with a degree in Business Management and Marketing, Kyley effortlessly manages the coordination and execution of every project—including order placement, tracking, receiving and management from the start to a perfectly installed finish.
Kyley is inspired by travel and drawn to the little details that go into design, especially when it comes to selecting lighting and hardware. When she’s not in the office, she is dreaming of her next travel adventure or spending time with her husband and two boys.
Payton Schiel, Design Assistant
An architecture student currently working on her degree in Construction Sciences and Management, Payton joined the team in 2017 and offers her precision and attention to detail to create renderings, draw plans, take measurements and conduct site visits. With a natural eye for construction, Payton is often on site to ensure that materials are accurate and that everything is done according to our design plan.
When she’s not living that hard-hat life, Payton’s likely working on finishing her degree and working toward her Masters in architecture. Beyond that, she loves to spend time with her family and get outdoors—often kayaking or hiking the trails with her dog.
