Petra believes that thoughtful architecture and interior design have the ability to enhance the quality of life. This is her main goal when working with clients. She takes a very personal approach to each project and understands that each client brings their own point of view, which shapes and informs the process of creating. Petra integrates that personal perspective with her propensity for clean, simple, and organized spaces.
Interior design is Petra’s current passion and second career. Petra graduated from Harrington Institute of design in 1996. Prior to that she was an acclaimed principal dancer with Ballet Chicago and Chicago City Ballet. She spent her formative years in New York as a scholarship student at the School of American Ballet. Petra’s well honed perception of space and proportion, and the influences in her life, as a dancer, bring a unique perspective in helping clients create and imagine, interesting and intuitively thought out projects. These projects include large scale residential, along with smaller scale home remodeling.
