Bessie is the founder and principal designer of Kardinia Interior Design. Her work includes full service interior design, renovations, new construction, interior decorating and styling for residential properties.
She believes good design involves creating a unique and customized space that feels lived in, that perfectly complements her clients’ style, and that incorporates design elements that the client wouldn’t have thought of themselves. Bessie is very hands on (a self-proclaimed perfectionist) and works tirelessly from conception to the last finishing detail.
Bessie lives in Orlando with her husband Jason and son Harrison.
I love brunches out with my girlfriends over mimosas
Much of my inspiration for each and every project comes from my travels
I love having fresh greenery and fresh flowers in my own home at all times
Beach days with my family are what makes me excited for the weekends
