A St. Louis native, my family lived in Dallas and Stamford, Connecticut before we pulled up stakes one last time to settle in Austin, Texas. Since 2010, I have been thrilled and excited to explore the opportunities this unique city has to offer. I am grateful that I have a career that I love, and I am dedicated to doing my best work ever here in Austin.
I started Cross Keys Designs in 1997. We had offices in Stamford, Connecticut and St. Petersburg, Florida for over 13 years. During that time, I specialized in renovating historic and vintage houses as well as tropical homes, luxury condominiums, and vacation retreats. I have extensive experience in space planning, remodeling kitchens and bathrooms, and collaborating with architects, builders, and construction managers. I want you to love your home and am dedicated to sourcing materials that are both Made in the USA and family friendly. I offer design solutions that are innovative and stylish, practical and timeless.
Geri has a vast array of resources. Being able to view all the possibilities was very helpful.
She [Geri] never pressured me. She would always present me with the options and when it was done, she always made me to feel like I had done it all myself.
The work was efficient, professional and reasonable.
I think the best part of working with Cross Keys Designs was knowing the finished product would meet my expectations. Geri works wonders with color and space.
Geri did my entire house over a period of several years. It all started with the kitchen. She did a beautiful redesign of our kitchen. It was such a pleasent experience that i called on her again the next year... after that, she did the living room, dining room and the sunporch. There is literally not a single room in our home that has not been touched by her: window treatments, furniture selection, lighting —you name it, she did it.
Producing a family liveable environment that still has some 'pizazz' [was the best part of working with Cross Keys Designs.].
I had an idea of what I wanted, but Geri brought my idea to life in a way that was even better than I had imagined. I can't wait to have her work on my next project.
