From a very young age, I knew that beautiful interiors impacted me tremendously and I would spend many hours passing the time looking at my Mother’s design magazines. Completely absorbed, I remember looking at the floor plan drawings and being fascinated by how they related to the photographed interior. Today, with nearly three decades of professional design experience, I am still fascinated by how interior surroundings have such a profound hold over me. And I believe that beautiful, well-designed interiors affect our emotions, our productivity and our aspirations.
As a Designer, I strive to create interiors that bring warmth and ease of living to my clients’ homes. Whether the project calls for a full construction remodel or a single room makeover, I bring my knowledge for interior architecture and design, and combine it with my belief that great lives are supported by great interiors.
With a Masters in Architectural Studies from Columbia College Chicago, where I’ve also taught, I stay on the forefront of industry ideas and trends, allowing me to create the gorgeous interiors that my clients’ think only exist in magazines, but which they quickly realize, exist for them in their own gorgeous homes, too.
I have always been drawn to beautiful interiors and architecture. I believe that a well-designed space can truly impact how we live our lives by providing us with the serene and calm environment we all crave.
After being a small business owner for over twenty-five years, I have decided to change careers and pursue my lifelong passion for design. New to this field, I am excited to combine my business and customer service experience with my love of design to become a valuable asset to Maura Braun Interior Design. I am eager to use my varied skillset to bring elegance into the lives of our clients.
After working for over 15 years in corporate and higher education settings as an executive assistant and project manager, I knew I wanted to combine those skills and put them to use helping even more people. So, about a year and half ago I decided to make the leap and start working as a virtual assistant! I truly have a passion helping people succeed.
My mission is to help passionate people share their passion with the world. As a virtual assistant, I get to help small businesses with the day-to-day so they can focus on what they do best. With experience in marketing and communications, I enjoy getting the word out about services and products that help people live better lives!
