specialties...

Phara queen design is an award winning DESIGN firm.  

with a degree in interior design and over 35 years experience, Phara Queen's expertise is knowing how to design a room by mixing colors, textures, and patterns seamlessly.

"A person always gets a sense when they walk into a room if it's not done right...even if they can't pinpoint why they feel that way. But if a room is done correctly by having the right mix...it's pure joy!"

glimpses...

I believe GREAT DESIGN doesn't happen without COLLABORATION between the designer and the client.

travel inspires me. some of my best creativity has happened while traveling the world to inspiring places such as budapest, scotland, ireland, paris, london, and capetown south africa.

I'm a southern girl with MISSISSIPPI roots so a great pair of Boots and ripped jeans is my go to all day, every day outfit. 

binge watching netflix with my husband is a perfect weekend.

instead of following the trends, color outside the lines and live with what you love.
