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.
If you could live anywhere in the world, where would it be and why?
- I’d love to live on the the coast of South Carolina. I’m a summer girl at heart and would prefer the milder winter season. I also love the southern hospitality and graceful design sense. Truth be told, I wouldn’t leave Minneapolis, Its home.
