A Chat with Purple Elephant Designs
What services does your business offer and what makes your business stand out from the competition?
Designer, Kristine Crook, intuitively knows how to give her clients what they desire and surpass their expectations with innovative solutions. Kristine is also a skilled painter, furniture refinisher, and laborer. She will do much of the labor herself.
What was the inspiration to start or run this business?
Having worked for employers designing kitchens, baths, lighting, and tile; I felt that I could be much more effective working directly with clients and developing lasting relationships. I also hold a BFA in interior design, I studied and designed in London, and I studied architecture.
What do you love most about your job?
I enjoy solving problems. Every new job is a puzzle with a unique solution. Additionally, creating a solution that a client never dreamed of and truly loves is the essence of why I design.
What is the best reaction you’ve ever gotten from a customer?
The best feedback comes when a client asks me to come back and design more spaces for them, or gleefully recommends me to friends and family. That is a silent gold seal that speaks loudly.
