Bette Raburn, Principal, ASID, Interior DesignBette Raburn, Principal, ASID, NCIDQ

Bette graduated with honors from American Intercontinental University with a Bachelor of Fine Arts in Interior Design.  Prior to starting her own company, Bette apprenticed with one of Atlanta’s premier kitchen and bath design firms, where she learned the technical, functional, and aesthetic side of cabinetry design and the importance of the construction and installation process.  She also had the opportunity to work with Corporate Design International, a prestigious commercial & residential architectural design firm.  Part of Bette’s differentiating qualifications include a Bachelor of Science in Finance and Economics and a Masters of Business Administration in Operations along with  her role as International Vice President and General Manager of Operations for Avery Dennison.  This assignment afforded her the incredible opportunity to travel extensively and to live abroad where she was personally submerged in various international cultures, architectural style and design elements.  All of these experiences have had a profound impact on the development of her unique vision and the approach she applies to her design solutions.  Whether the style is traditional, eclectic, contemporary, period or transitional, Bette applies the same design philosophy.  “We strive to ensure that we present the client with designs, products and services that will endure the test of time, while working to maintain the client’s vision and budget.
