Peggy learned tailoring skills and a love of fine textiles at an early age from her grandmother, Hilda Halme. While studying at Clark College and Portland State University, she often helped out at her grandmother's tailoring shop sewing everything from men's suits to formal ballgowns. After moving to the San Francisco Bay area, Peggy started SISU, a wholesale manufacturer of furnishings and window coverings. Her experience in manufacturing enhances her ability to specify custom products for her clients using the most appropriate construction techniques and textiles. Peggy passed the NCIDQ (National Council for Interior Design Qualification) exam and became California Certified Designer #4400 in 1996.
Peggy served as the Northern California Chapter President of International Furnishings and Design Association in 1998, and the National President in 2001. When relocating with her husband to Dallas in 2001, she held the positions of showroom manager at the Donghia showroom and the David Sutherland showroom before opening her own design firm in 2006. Her work involves collaborating with architects, builders, contractors and vendors while representing her clients. She takes pleasure in creating functional spaces that express her client's preferences in aesthetics.
