Myers took an interest in art from age 13, when her grandmother taught her how to paint with watercolors. In high school and college, her fascination with design and color led her to work in clothing stores, while she earned a degree in education. After four years of teaching, she literally flew away — becoming an international flight attendant.
After studying and soaking in the rich art and architecture world travel offers, she eventually settled into her dream career: interior design. That was 13 years ago, when she graduated from the International Academy of Design and Technology in Chicago.
Now, she approaches every home as a challenge to complete a unique work of art reflecting her clients' tastes.
"To design a space that enhances human lives, you need to focus on a range of details: color, personality, culture, furniture placement and scale that will transform a person's personal environment, creating harmony and a natural flow of energy through space and balance," Myers says.
Her in-depth exposure to international cultures allows her to combine world influences with the Colorado lifestyle.
And these days, she's ahead of the curve, as Americans are beginning to trend toward a minimalist design — a less-is-more approach, as opposed to an extravagant style, she says.
"I've already seen all of that — Germany has a totally different design concept, with minimal furniture and kitchen (size)," she says. "It doesn't need to be over the top to be beautiful."
In keeping with her appreciation of clean, simple design, Myers took a six-week course to become a GREENleader accredited professional. The GREENleaders program educates professionals on home furnishing topics ranging from environmental protection, indoor air quality (for example, using natural finishes, which don't contain formaldehyde, on wood) and proper sourcing of "green" products.
"('Green') products are getting easier to find," Myers says. "I think that people are under the impression that if they buy 'green,' they're going to have to pay more, but as more products become available, I believe the price will come down, just like anything else."
Her dedication to employing environmentally friendly practices fits perfectly with her artistic appreciation of all the world has to offer.
