Hilary is a registered interior designer with more than 13 years of experience in the design industry encompassing both residential and commercial design. She recently received her Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED) Accreditation and is now one of only 115 accredited interior design professionals in the state of Illinois.

Hilary is passionate about style and detail and carries with her a prestigious knowledge of interior design history that informs her everyday design decisions. But no matter how large the project and how wide-ranging the decision, Hilary allows no trace of self-importance to stand in the way of the flow of ideas; she encourages innovation and improvement while striving to always balance art with function.

Hilary attempts to educate as well as serve. She's currently the ASID Illinois president and has been an active member of the professional organization for 16 years. She mentors junior designers and often presents on interior design at events such as NeoCon World’s Trade Fair.
