Chad spent the majority of his formative years splitting time between Holly Springs, MS and Memphis, TN. The juxtaposition of these two places has helped shape his design philosophy. Holly Springs – A sleepy southern town steeped in antiquity and tradition is contrasted by Memphis – a bustling urban metropolis in the “New South”. He takes queues from both places by mixing traditional and modern, antique and new.
He attended Memphis College of Art with a focus on Fine Art and Photography before embracing his true passion for interior design. After college Chad worked as an independent residential designer for many years before venturing into corporate merchandising and eventually design project management. He is now refocusing his energies once again on residential design as an Interior Designer for SummerHouse.
“Knowing that I create spaces that give my clients a sense of pride or a beautiful calming place to retreat to after a long day makes me happy,” says the designer.
Chad lives outside of Oxford in Hernando, is happily married, and likes to spend his off days catching up Real Housewives.
