Education on the job leads to handling of all business and design aspects
As a kid, Rebecca Robinson moved often, which is why it is no surprise that the first sign she would become an interior designer was the way she would design floor plans and arrange the furniture at every new home.
After earning her Bachelor of Interior Design at O’More College of Design, Robinson worked as a designer and manager at a local furniture retailer. There, she gained knowledge of furniture construction, flooring and textiles, as well as managing store operations and client budgets and organizing the delivery/warehouse team.
In 2006, Robinson launched her own design firm, Monarch Lane Interiors, in Nashville, TN, where she is the creative director involved in every aspect of remodeling and new construction, from drawing floor plans to color and selections to managing contractors and overseeing the design and construction details. Working with builders and realtors, Robinson’s experience designing model homes gave her the eye for staging and accessorizing homes. Now specializing in kitchen and bath design, Robinson has earned the Certified Kitchen and Bath Designer designation. She is also a National Kitchen & Bath Association member and is currently serving as the state chapter’s president.
