Homedit: Were you always interested in design? Tell us about the moment when you decided this is the way to go.
Tamara: I’ve always been fascinated by fashion and interiors. As a child growing up in Nova Scotia Canada I was fortunate enough to travel with my dad on business to cities like NYC and London and was in awe of the magnificent styles. I received my graduate education in NYC at The Fashion Institute of Technology and was later hired as a clothing buyer for Bergdorf Goodman.
My love of fashion easily translated into interior design. Color theory, patterns, scale etc and the overall skill of putting an outfit together is very similar to that of a room. I still look to fashion to help inspire an interior and truly feel they go hand in hand.
