The Story of Tierno 

Back in grade school somewhere I was given a t-shirt that said "Rugged Individualist".  Now that I am just a bit older, I still own that shirt and keep it as a reminder of who I am and what direction I should take in my life.  Looking at the world from a different perspective has aloud me to create some very innovative designs for my clients.

Prior to my Interior Design career I had been many, many things.  I was an insurance claims specialist,  a route sales rep for a soda company, and a manager of a coffee shop.  And while gaining success in all those positions,  I still felt like my true passion was yet to be discovered. In 2009 I had a breakthrough, or I should say my wife Marni did.  After completing the renovation of the master bath and basement, she asked why I am not doing this for a living.  I couldn't think of one reason why I shouldn't be so I started the Masters of Interior Architecture program at Chatham University and graduated in 2011.  

Since then I have worked for two architecture firms as and interior designer and as a kitchen equipment distribution firm as a project manager. Finally in 2018 it was time for me to take the next step. I opened my own company, Studio 42 Design.  Thanks for stopping by my website and can not wait to help you with your next interior renovation project.

Why would I ever need an Interior Designer?!?!?!

Now that you know more about me,  let's see why I would be good for your project.  An Interior designer not only picks finishes and furniture but, we have also studied how you and your environment relate.  A good environmental relationship works, is easy and makes you feel positive.  A bad relationship with your environment is frustrating,  can create stress, make you feel sad, and even affect your health.  

As an Interior Designer I am responsible for creating a space that not only is beautiful and functional, but is good for your physical health and mental well being. 

And what does that all mean?  Check out the Designer 101 page for the lowdown.
