Pam studied Interior Design in California at one of the USA’s top 5 design schools and graduated with Honors. Pam also studied Commerce at Bond University, Gold Coast and While studying Marketing at Glasgow University, Scotland Pam honed her business skills by running multiple companies simultaneously. During that time, it was running a successful property development business that really fast-tracked her learning skills on the tools. “Nothing makes you learn faster than when you are spending your own money, while having to quickly and efficiently problem-solve for the best outcome. I would not possess those skills had it not been for my years of renovating and learning building techniques necessary to understand my way around a dirty job site.”
In addition to continuing her education and successfully running companies, Pam translated her knowledge and resourcefulness into the media world. Pam hosted various weekly TV segments on both ITV Scotland and 9 Network in Australia and was a columnist for various newspapers and magazines in the UK and Australia.
“I got to the point where I desperately wanted to study Interior Design in order to understand the psychology of a space. Why one room works when another, equally beautiful, just doesn’t. That is what really fascinated me about interior design - it is not about just picking a colour and some fancy fabrics. There are so many layers and thoughtful sleepless nights that go into creating each room. I love the journey and excitement of every new project because no two are ever the same.”
While living in Italy for 4-years, she re-designed a 17th century Italian Palazzo for a clients holiday home. so inspired by her time there, she continued transforming numerous derelict farm houses into 21st century family homes whilst retaining all the charms of the original structure.
Pam has always loved the USA and has worked on numerous development projects in Los Angeles California, and beautiful Savannah, Georgia.
The UK is where Pam commenced her design work. Her first project was a 100 year old tenement flat which she transformed from a 1-bedroom flat into a 2-bedroom luxury apartment with open-plan living / kitchen. Progressing to a beautiful period home from the late 1800s, she successfully retained all the original cornice features which were finished in gold leaf, and original hand carved Italian marble fireplaces.
“I love collaborating with other professionals on projects, and constantly learning to ensure I deliver my A-game to each project with the backup of latest products and technical knowledge globally - not just locally. This ensures my clients receive the best advice available in the market."
