Lead Project Designer
Hannah began her career at Sunnyfields as the Showroom Manager, immediately after receiving her bachelor’s in architecture from the University of Maryland School of Architecture, Planning and Preservation. Hannah joined the Sunnyfields team with the goal of learning the business from the ground up from our knowledgeable staff. After a year in the showroom, Hannah was promoted to Design Associate. Over the years, the tremendous growth of her design capabilities allowed her to progress to Project Designer and now, Lead Project Designer. Recently featured in Home & Design magazine, she uses her honed aesthetic sense and knowledge of architectural traditions with her minor in art history to serve the Sunnyfields clients in their quest for functional and beautiful design solutions. Her energy and enthusiasm are contagious as she walks a client through the design process.
Get to know Hannah
“I love taking a client’s ‘problem space’ and using my creativity to design a solution that works best for them. A successful design combines a beautiful aesthetic, intentional functionality, and the personal touch of the client’s style, taste and lifestyle priorities. Of course, a space has to be functional but, in my designs, I also like to include pieces that create “special moments” for my clients to enjoy and experience. Something as simple as dressing up a fireplace so that the owners can enjoy a cozy evening in, or adding fun colors and textures to a wet bar giving my clients the ability to enjoy restaurant and bar experience at home.”
“I am starting to see clients move from the monochromatic, clean, and sleek look. People are wanting to incorporate warmth and little details back into their homes. I encourage my clients to focus on layering finishes and color. Every room should have a dark, medium, and light tone. This creates a rich design that has a lot of depth. I also push my clients to mix two metals in their kitchens or bathrooms. This moves away from a stale or stagnant look.”
