Marilyn Robertson Designs
I drew floor plans in junior high school. The Room Improvement project was one of my favorites in 4-H Club in high school. I learned to use the elements of design and to create design boards which were entered in competitions.
Unfortunately, the college I attended did not offer a degree in interior design. However, I remained interested in design. Though I was not a true DIY, I planned and designed what others did at our house! I did make draperies, valances, cornices, swags, pillows, dust ruffles, and even machine quilted a coverlet. The bathrooms benefitted from my shower curtain and valance and machine embroidered towels.
Some of the walls were painted by professionals, but I did many myself. Selecting and mixing colors gave me pleasure. Friends and family asked for my opinions when they decorated.
While I did these projects for my own fulfillment, I taught choral music, raised a son, and became a real estate Broker and owner of my company, Stellar Homes. Creative juices were channeled in garden club activities including both design and gardening.
At a time when friends were retiring, I decided it was time to act on that dream from years ago! I studied online, received a diploma and am now the proud owner of Marilyn Robertson Designs!
I find that my two firms complement each other. For years I suggested to sellers ways to improve their homes before marketing them and helped buyers visualize how to make a house their home. But, I’ll gladly help someone I’ve never met turn a house into their dream home!
