Catherine Avery of Avery Design Interiors: Style Maker Look Book
Catherine Avery believes that real people live in their homes, that homes are not meant to be designer show houses. In fact, she can make your home look like an interior designer was not there at all.
Homes should be family friendly, whether that’s taking into account Timmy’s train set, Sally’s love of ballet or Fido’s favorite chair. Having a child of her own, she recognizes that families should not have to worry about knocking over a precious vase or putting a glass on the coffee table. And if you do have a favorite collection, she will find a way to display it safely away from your toddlers and your golden retriever’s happy tail.
As a Wall Street marketing executive, Catherine Avery had a special gift for client relations. With a high-pressured job, she looked for ways to express her creativity. She would buy condominiums, decorate and resell. It soon became apparent to her friends and clients that she had talent. Her designs connected with just about every person who saw them. She decided to leave Wall Street and return to school.
After graduating from Fairfield University’s Professional Interior Design Program, Catherine worked as a junior designer for a well-known Fairfield County designer. Author of an award-winning design blog, she has been featured in local newspapers, as well as on several design websites.
She teaches continuing education classes and is actively involved in her church and Near and Far Aid. An Allied Member of ASID, Catherine holds an MBA from New York University’s Stern School of Business and a BA from Smith College. She lives in Fairfield County Connecticut with her husband, daughter and their cat.
