Although Sam attended university in the midwest, she studied abroad twice- first at Oxford University in England, and then once again in Madrid, Spain. It was during her travels abroad that Sam truly honed her eye for design by visiting local galleries, museums, and taking in the architectural wonders of different cultures.
Today, Sam works as a freelance interior designer in Manhattan and holds a Bachelor of Fine Arts in Interior Design from the Art Institute of Houston. She cut her teeth working as a designer for some of the top firms in the interior design industry, including Amanda Nisbet and Carrier & Company. She continues to share her passions with readers weekly on The Peak of Très Chic. When she isn't blogging or working, you can find Sam scouring antique stores, enjoying a cocktail, quoting Oscar Wilde or planning her next weekend escape.
