Paul is a native Minnesotan with a lifelong passion for all things design. It truly all began with a patient mom that allowed him to partner with any decorating needs in the household while growing up... probably starting with the Christmas tree and culminating with a custom-built home where mom would pull Paul out of class to help pick out tile.
His education centered more around marketing and business with a degree from the Carlson School of Management. But the creative journey called and he spent most of his career in Visual Merchandising with stores like Gap, Banana Republic and freelancing for many local boutique retailers. Most recently he spent 17 years with Room&Board as a Visual Merchandising leader designing showrooms across the country.
Paul has also maintained a side business in the floral industry creating wedding bouquets and decor for hundreds of brides and flower pots for residential clients.
Paul is eager to pivot his career and focus more on helping clients one on one to create their dream home, while helping Suzanne curate a lively and unique merchandise assortment for the At Home & Co retail store.

Sereena’s love for design started at a young age with color. She was fascinated by the colors in nature and how they could evoke different feelings. Wanting to apply nature to all her surroundings and use color to create emotion, she followed her path to Century College, where she received her Associates in Interior Design. Since then, she has continued to use nature to inspire her designs and create an environment that mirrors each client’s personality. “One of my favorite quotes is, 'Home is the story of who we are and a collection of all that we love,' Sereena said. “I want to embody that philosophy in all those that I help. Everybody deserves to have a home that reflects them and that is solely their own.” Sereena’s creative eye, and compassionate heart have given her the tools to dig deep and solve any problems that come her way and do whatever it takes to give each client a wonderful and happy experience.
