Design captured my interest in the unique ways that space and movement influence how we live. While at the University of Texas I refined my skills and particularly gravitated to the use of textiles, color, and layering in the design process. Working in Houston has afforded me the benefits of a wide range of projects. I love to mix our traditional regional heritage with newer cosmopolitan and international elements. Inspiration also comes from previous projects, such as coastal elements that incorporate the natural beauty of the sea and sky to create soothing and relaxing getaways. From fabrics to furnishings, each element of our design process reveals our clients visual story. Growing my business has allowed me to add and develop fresh talent giving CDB interiors a wide perspective on our evolving design philosophy.

It has been said that money is power, and we are happy that the teammate who advises our money is basically Wonder Woman! Our CDB Interiors team wouldn’t be complete without our accountant, Mindy Voyles. Born in The Woodlands, Mindy was educated at Southern Methodist University and now has two of her three children there. These three kiddos are Mindy’s inspiration and she would very much like to be by the ocean, while listening to some killer 80’s tunes. If Mindy could have CDB Interiors design a space anywhere for her it would be Lake Tahoe. She loves to travel there, New York, and Maine. Happy to be awash in shades of blue, our accountant has two other babies, well, fur babies that is: a Boxer named Roxy and a Bulldog named Bandit. If Mindy weren’t an accountant, she would be a party or event planner. While the numbers game isn’t a party to many, it is to Mindy and we are ever so thankful to have her as part of our team!

Meet Sheldon, the office official mascot and true teammate. What weight he is actually pulling, we aren't sure, but office morale is better because he is always their to rifle through a bag or win a staring contest.
