Where did all this take place?
Her parents home, her grandparents home, or their boat, the lake... and always around the family table. All of these precious life lessons, encouragement, laughter, and fun were exchanged at the always beautifully set family table! Privileged? Yes, but not in the way you would automatically think... Roxanne feels this privilege was the gift of listening to these hard-working men,
and women (those women, my mother and grandmother, had their backs! You know the quote, behind every great man stands a great woman!) was her heritage. This is where she gets her inspiration... wanting to set the stage for others to pass their heritage down through the generations. Her mission is to use design to help other families set the stage to instill their family legacies around the table, be it farmhouse, dining or picnic table... this is Roxanne's dream.
Her dream began to take shape in Paris, France while attending the Paris Fashion Institute (and the Sorbonne)and attending the couture shows at the House of Dior, YSL, and Louis Feraud the fire was lit under her that design was the way she felt passion! Through conversations with the design mentor Joan White, she saw interior design as very appealing.
