SoFortWorthIt LOVES Design

Claire Living room

Growing up a Dunaway gave me the advantage of being exposed to fine interiors and furnishings. My parents had impeccable taste, and because of that, I was unknowingly conditioned at an early age to appreciate the history of antiques and architecture. I have many fond memories of taking antique shopping trips, local and abroad, and even sitting in on meetings to help make decisions with my mom and renowned designer, Gerald Tomlin, former appraiser on Antiques Roadshow.

Although I’m not a decorator by profession, I have a keen eye when it comes to interior design and achieving a look that people fall in love with. I can’t wait to share my decorating tips, styling tricks, and trade secrets with you!

Being married to a guy who used to build homes as a profession has its benefits too. We recently finished a remodel in our home, and as soon as I have our newly decorated basement professionally photographed, I’ll take you on a tour. In the mean time, here are a few pictures before and during reno. Since my husband was the general contractor, and because my opinions were heavily involved, it was definitely one of the more difficult projects he had taken on. Imagine that!

Some of you might be asking if I have an interior designer who helps me. The answer is an emphatic yes!! I have several talented people who I consult and bounce ideas around with. Each one of them brings an important aspect to the table to help me make the best decision on rolling forward with a project.
