Meet Our Designers
Meet our newest collaborator – Cameron Gross - a young professional with great energy, color talent and a knack for consummate customer service. Cameron has left the star track of her basketball career and entered the design world with equal exuberance. Her colorful style has earned her the respect of many clients. In her short time at Monarch, she has worked successfully on color palettes, wallpaper selections and window treatments, as well as furnishings and space planning. Her eye for color is very refined and of great value to clients working to achieve the ideal environment within their homes and workspaces.
Her eclecticism is a welcome respite from ‘tired’ design approaches and she is appreciated for bringing new ideas into client design schemes. Her refreshing approach enlivens our studio and energizes our clients, as well. Her main goal is always to help you to create a home base that delivers comfort, balance and happiness – likely using a few new ideas and a bit of a twist!
