At a young age, Debbie developed a love for collecting antiques as she spent countless hours with her maternal grandmother and a close family friend scavenging garage sales and antique shops. While these influential women had differing tastes, each instilled in Debbie a passion for the hunt, superior quality and fair pricing. Through the years, Debbie developed her own keen eye and unique style that is both elegant and current – in antiques, design and homes.
Debbie has bought and sold fine European antiques for more than 20 years, mindful of pieces that will withstand the test of time and increase in value. She is always combing the market here and abroad for quality pieces and accessories. She inventories an incredible collection and sells retail through the Belle Meade Shoppes in Nashville and online at www.1stdibs.com.
Selling antiques has opened the door for clients seeking Debbie’s help with Interior Design services. Debbie has helped numerous clients over the past 15 years with interior design projects ranging from selecting a single fabric to renovating an entire house. Hallmarks of her design aesthetic include anchoring a room with timeless antiques and layering in accessories that range in age from the 18th Century to more current and contemporary pieces.
Debbie is motivated by the hunt and enjoys helping clients find the perfect piece of art to hang above their mantle to the curating perfect home that captures their personality and needs. Debbie’s trained eye can help clients who are selling a home by helping them de-clutter, stage and select paint colors which are appealing to the potential homebuyer. For clients buying a home, she is able to help them visualize how a home could look with some minor or major renovations, a change of paint colors or proper furniture placement.
Whether it’s a new fresh look or a new home altogether, Debbie’s team is here to help clients define their own style. We understand the investment you make in your home’s interior can impact resale down the road. Debbie’s affiliation with Nashville market leader, Fridrich & Clark Realty, offers clients a turnkey solution for both interior design and real estate services.
A southern California native and UCLA graduate, Debbie has called Nashville home for more than 25 years. Nashville is where she has raised her three children, received a Master’s Degree from Vanderbilt University, extensively renovated two of her personal homes, and served in numerous community service roles, including the formation of the Tennessee Chapter of the ALS Association in honor of her mother. Debbie enjoys her time with family, snow skiing, and travel…where she is always searching for that next treasure and source of inspiration.
