Camille Garro - President
Camille Garro, president of Camille Garro Interiors, did not have to think all that hard about what she wanted to be when she grew up. As a child, Camille accompanied her mother from one fabric shop to another and together they transformed their family's little cape home to their little palace. Witnessing firsthand the magical transformation of space with the proper balance of color, texture and furniture, Camille developed a lifelong passion for design and the belief that great design can truly enrich one's life.
From elaborate Victorians to cutting-edge contemporary, from classic traditionals to cozy English Tudors, Camille continues to create magic with all her projects, holding firm to her belief that indeed great design should also be accessible to everyone. Since most of her projects tend to be ongoing, continuing into Phase II, III, IV, Camille stresses the importance of client/designer relationships. Describing her ideal client as someone who shares the same passion about their home as she has, Camille states, "I love my clients to be excited and ready to learn style. My job is to define and redefine style, my clients' job is to react and act." Indeed, after 20 years of successfully interpreting clients' needs and wants, ultimately providing them with their dream home, Camille's philosophy seems to work!
Evie Hickey has always had a tremendous passion for interior decor and a true love of fashion design. Her affinity for the fashion industry was apparent from a young age when she would pour over a collection of Vogue magazines to which she has subscribed to since she was seven.
As a Syracuse University graduate with a life long art background, Evie majored in English and has worked as a marketing analyst in the areas of e-commerce and finance. In addition to her corporate experience and her love for writing, Evie has always desired a career where she could combine her natural artistic talents and eye for color with her appreciation for architectural detail and sense of aesthetic balance.
Joining forces with Camille Garro was just an ideal progression as their separate visions wonderfully complement each other to form a masterful union of designer skill. Together, Evie and Camille have showcased their work on NECN's New England Dream Home , the 2010 and upcoming 2011 North Shore Design Shows, and are now embarking upon their latest endeavor: Camille Couture.
Evie is excited about Camille Garro Interior's expansion into a line of fashion and home accessories: "The worlds of decor and couture just seem to instinctively go hand in hand. Accessorizing in the home is not terribly different from constructing the perfect ensemble to wear, it is all about balance and detail." To Evie the evolution from interior design to fashion design was natural, and she looks forward to bringing a glamorous touch to make your special home space and wardrobe absolutely awe-inspiring.
