Share your background
  •       I began my Interior Design career as an assistant to Dorothy Collins in the mid 1980’s, a prominent Interior Designer. After assisting her for 2 years, I worked as an Interior Designer at Durr, Ltd, which specialized in English and French antiques. It was at Durr, Ltd that I built a wonderful clientele and began to hit my stride as an Interior Designer. After 5 years at Durr, Ltd  I brought my business to William Beson Interior Design where I continued to grow until I opened the doors to my own design studio in January of 2010.
