A current resident of the Algonquin area and a life-long resident of Chicagoland, Bailey has worked on a wide range of projects in the area. She’s worked wow-factor appeal and new storage solutions into kitchens and primary bathrooms. She’s refreshed family rooms and mudrooms with improved flow and functionality. She’s turned a ho-hum garage into an “ultimate” garage and blinged out many a powder room in need of a new look. She’s even added a fourth addition to a house that kept finding new needs as the family grew.
“Seeing a space go from drab to fab never gets old,” says Bailey. “But it’s not just the renewed space that makes each project worthwhile. I prioritize making the entire journey enjoyable.”
A career in design was Bailey’s focus from an early age. Her family can’t recall her wanting to do anything else. She went from being an addict of shows like “Trading Spaces” and “Extreme Makeover Home Edition” (ask her about her autographed photo of Ty Pennington) to studying entrepreneurship and design at Illinois State and the Illinois Institute of Art – Schaumburg. She was an intern at Drury Design before working here full-time as an assistant.
“Being back is like returning home,” she says. “Everything from the high level of design to the great people to the amazing showroom – this is such a great place to be a designer.”
