Practical Design is owned and operated by Marla Gervich of Flower Mound Texas.
Owning my own Interior Design business has been a dream of mine for a long time coming. I’ve worked as a design consultant for Ethan Allen in Wilmington, Delaware and in St. Louis, Missouri. I’ve always had an eye for decorating but it was in Wilmington that I received my formal training as a designer. I worked and trained at the one of the top ten Ethan Allen stores in the United States. I became skilled in creating floor plans, selecting colors, as well as furniture and accessory placement. My time at Ethan Allen exposed me to many different styles of decorating. The most valuable lesson I took home with me is that there is no “one style” that fits all.
I’m excited to be a member of the Designer Society of America! For over the past ten years the DSA, a member based organization, is considered to be a major player in the world of interior design, offering certification courses and continuing education. It will be great resource for me to share with clients the latest decorating trends, trade products and annual trade shows.
