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 allowed me to create some really 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 to mention only a few.  And while gaining success in all those positions,  I still felt like my true passion was yet to be. 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 and I started the Masters program at Chatham University in Interior Design 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 checking out my site and I can't wait to work with you!

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

Now that you know what I am all about,  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.
