Born and raised in San Diego, California, Stacey brings a unique and fresh approach to Design. At a young age, she proudly interned underneath her mother with The Exclusive Touch, a family interior design business. She developed a natural love for creating interior spaces that make people feel good. Many residential projects were obviously influenced by the coastal surroundings. But, the diversity of downtown San Diego and the rural inland communities allowed her to explore modern and rustic approaches.
Stacey’s genuine ability to communicate and listen to her clients’ needs and her easy-going disposition makes her an attractive choice and a joy to work with. Her goal is to ensure that the fundamental design and materials used are timeless and perfect for the space. She has enjoyed building many friendships and maintaining solid client relationships since moving here 7 years ago. Stacey is happiest enjoying all of what Minnesota has to offer. She especially enjoys fishing and boating with her husband and children. She also has a great passion for cooking and enjoys preparing traditional family heirloom recipes with her daughter. Stacey loves creating new recipes for friends and family to try on a regular basis.
