Cecil Hayes- Designer Unlimited!

I met Architectural Digest Top 100 Interior Designer Cecil Hayes in 2008. She was at ADAC giving a keynote presentation and sharing the inspiration for her book, "9 Steps to Beautiful Living".  I've always admired Cecil, not just because of what she has accomplished as an African-American interior designer, but also because of what she has accomplished as a woman in the male-dominated furniture manufacturing industry.   During the Atlanta visit, she gave an amazing lecture and later answered questions from the audience that were beneficial to both the novice and pro alike. It was a wonderful glimpse into her life that I still treasure to this day.   So much of the wisdom she shared that morning made its way into my design practice and for that, I am eternally grateful to Cecil.

When asked about choosing a career as an Interior Designer, Cecil shares the following.
"My decorating talent allows me to see a space as an empty canvas waiting to become a composition of shapes, colors and textures. Everything about me enjoys creating memorable living spaces for each client. "

Cecil's newly designed website, illustrates just how accomplished of an interior designer she really is.  With features in top-rate publications like, the Boston Globe, USA Today, and the Robb Report, singing her praises it's no wonder clients from all over the world seek her out to design their homes, businesses and resorts.


There is so much to say about Cecil Hayes, but I'd rather let her work speak for itself.  It's a joy for me to present to you, today's feature, Florida native, and Hall of Fame Interior Designer, Cecil Hayes.
