ESTERO, FL Interior Designer Sherri DuPont has been named Miromar Design Center’s June 2014 Designer of Distinction. Sherri DuPont, ASID, is a Florida licensed interior designer with more than 40 years of experience designing homes around the world. She is the co-owner of Bonita Springs based Collins & DuPont Design Group.
“Miromar Design Center provides greater accessibility to many of my regular vendors by making it possible for clients to sit in selected pieces of furniture or see a wider range of large samples of fabrics, rugs, wall coverings, flooring and wall tiles,” said DuPont. “The showrooms at Miromar Design Center are beautiful and the staff is always helpful and knowledgeable.”
Ms. DuPont received her Bachelor of Science in Interior Design from Florida State University then went on to attend the Graduate School of Business at Harvard University, with a focus in the design business. She continued her post graduate studies in Europe and the United States and still finds much of her inspiration by traveling the world to learn about textiles, materials, art and architecture. In 1987, DuPont founded the design firm that bears her name with partner Kim Collins, ASID. Ms. DuPont’s experience, artistic passion, and in-depth understanding of design around the globe has led her to receive many accolades throughout her career including several of the highly coveted ASID, Aurora, Bala and Sand Dollar Awards.
DuPont says she specializes in interior detailing, “I glean my color palette from fashion, nature and photography. My inspiration for style and architecture comes mostly from traveling through Europe, Central America and the Caribbean. Each project varies by client and the location of the home. Typically the client will give me an indication of their ideas on style and color. I then look to fashion and textiles for color and pattern, as well as nature photography and my library of architectural photos,” DuPont said.
Each month Miromar Design Center recognizes the talents, loyalty and support of interior design professionals based upon nominations from the center’s 45 store managers. Designers are honored in this year-round appreciation program for their professionalism, creativity and commitment. “Sherri DuPont is truly a very talented designer and graceful in all her dealings with our showroom. She displays absolute professionalism and care to all details during various presentations to her clients. It is a pleasure working with Sherri and all Collins & Dupont staff on their various projects,” said Ozzie Pancaro, owner of nominating showroom Minotti.
