Decorating for Fresh Perspective with Dorothy McMillan – 11-14-15
October 25, 2015
This week we continue to “Learn From Experts”, tapping the insights and skills of guests who can help us learn to live a more full and holistic life.
Often we see pictures of home interiors that we would love to see reflected in our own home, and that we feel could help our home become a true sanctuary, but we just don’t know how to put the look together ourselves. Whether it is sourcing the pieces to create a certain look, or determining what patterns and colors will make the room special, decorating can be an overwhelming process. This week we speak with an accomplished interior designer about how we can transform our living and work spaces using some easy and simple tips.
Dorothy McMillan was born in Burlington, Wisconsin. While raising four children as a single parent, Dorothy attended Gateway Technical College and graduated with a 4.0 GPA. She pursued her love of interior design and became a licensed Interior Designer, spending 16 years at the highly respected Porters of Racine.
Dorothy started her company, Finely Done, Inc. in 2004, providing independent consulting for residential and commercial interiors. She has designed homes and business interiors in Wisconsin, Illinois, Arizona, Florida and Virginia. Her work has been featured in Timber Homes Illustrated, and “The Arts and Crafts Cabin” by Susan Obomsawin.
Dorothy is a member of the Advisory board for the Interior Design program at Gateway Technical College in Kenosha, WI and is a regional Manager for the state of WI for IntegraTect, which is a green, Leed certified spray protection product for home furnishings.
