"This is my third project with California Closets and it's been a pleasure every time. Debra Leb made the design process easy, and the installation was completed on time and with precision. People are raving about our new pantry and walk-in master bedroom closet. And we loved the murphy bed so much we moved it from our last house and placed it in our new house. Thanks!" - Kathleen S., Wilmette, IL
I feel so fortunate to be able to utilize my skills and expertise in a way that makes a real difference in people’s lives. After spending 13 years in the fashion industry working as a Midwest Regional Merchandiser for Donna Karan, TSE Cashmere and Escada, I joined the design team at California Closets.
Ever since, rather than merchandising clothes in the stores, I have been able to re-create personal space. I truly enjoy being welcomed into a client’s home to assess their needs, and to then transform an area that offers a functional storage solution that’s also aesthetically pleasing.
As a veteran designer, I’ve built up a business of clients who appreciate my knowledge, passion and energy. My greatest compliment is when they call me back year after year to design additional spaces or when they refer friends and family for my services.
I earned a B.A. degree in Communication Arts from the University of Wisconsin – Madison in 1991.
