DreamMaker Bath & Kitchen designer, Angie Moats, just began her fifth year with the company. The Taylorville native and resident is responsible for meeting her clients’ needs with each project, start to finish. We’ve worked with Angie on several projects, most recently a custom-built live edge island with waterfall ends for a kitchen project in Hillsboro, IL.
What makes someone a great designer?
I think having a passion for the process and the ability to step outside one’s taste and style to fulfill someone else’s dream is very important.
How can someone easily incorporate reclaimed wood into their home?
Wow, where do I begin? Floating shelves, tabletops, island and bar walls and tops, wall coverings, headboards, fireplace mantels, mirror frames, custom furniture pieces… the possibilities are endless.
Why do you think live edge furniture remains a popular design style?
The most popular design style right now is very casual and natural materials like reclaimed wood suits that vibe to a tee.
What are the design trends for 2020?
I think it will be a continuation of farmhouse, industrial, and retro styles. We’re seeing a lot of mixed metals, with polished brass (yes, I said it) making an appearance.
Why do you recommend reclaimed wood as a design feature for your clients?
Each beautiful piece is one-of-a-kind and it’s indestructible so very kid-friendly.
