Traditional in South Florida

FR Review:
While most of South Florida interior decorating focuses on contemporary eclectic, Tracy Dunn prides herself on a traditional style. Though many of her interiors could easily be transferred to a home up north, Dunn also inserts natural, and sometimes nautical items in order to contextualize a room. Dunn’s designs also have unique touches. (For example taking a garden stool and making it into a lamp.) We hear that her projects are more suited to an Old Mediterranean or Key West exteriors than to New Mediterranean or ultra-modern ones.

Dunn started out in fashion. After receiving a degree in fashion merchandising from Florida State University, she went on to become a buyer for a department store. Dunn notes similar skills apply in both fashion and interior design; for example scale, texture and color. As family and friends began to ask her for decorating advice, the business grew. Dunn left department store buying behind and opened her own firm in 1999. Dunn is the only employee at her firm, but hires people as needed. She usually tackles one or two large project along with four to five smaller projects at once, and almost all of her work is residential. Almost all of Dunn’s projects are single-family homes ranging from 4,000 to 6,000 square feet and located in South Florida, though she has done work for clients in Vermont. Dunn is quite affordable, and charges a low markup over net and an average hourly. She sometimes charges a reasonable retainer for larger jobs, which is deducted against purchases over time. Dunn is a designer on the rise, who provides a different view from the usual Florida style. We hear that she is as charming as her designs would suggest.

Representative Client Comments:
“Working with Tracy was very easy. She has an incredible sense of style and great taste. It was fun to work with her.” “During the moving process a few things were dented, and Tracy got someone there to fix it right away.” “I’m the sort of person who knows what she likes, but wouldn’t be able to put it together on my own. Tracy was great at understanding my style and executing everything.” “As far as timing and budget, if I needed to wait a month or two to buy something for budgetary reasons, Tracy was fine with that.” “You can tell with her that she loves what she does. Not everyone has that time of infectious passion for their job.” "I've worked with Tracy for ten years, and she's done two of my homes." "My home is atypical of Florida. Tracy brings a more unique eclectic look from what you usually see around here." "It's really easy with Tracy to deserve what you're feeling, and she gets it immediately." "Tracy is great at understanding the end vision." "She worked totally within my timeframe and was extremely considerate of it." "She's never pushy about purchases. If I needed to wait a month to buy something, Tracy was respectful of that." "Tracy is great to talk to, so it was easy for me to say, 'That's too pricey,' or 'that's more than I want to spend.'"
