With a determined yet relaxed approach, Tonya is as talented as she is accomplished.
A transplant from the Midwest, she earned her master’s degree in Interior Architecture from Utah State University. In addition, Tonya secured her well-honed aesthetic chops as the former partner of a boutique design firm and as a senior designer for Barclay Butera Interiors.
Beyond making things look pretty, Tonya sets herself apart with an extensive understanding of the construction process. Whether it’s drafting in CAD or working hand-in-hand with builders, Tonya’s knowledge manifests itself in everything that she designs.
Tonya has most notably left her creative mark in developments throughout Utah including Red Ledges, Promontory, Victory Ranch, and Glenwild. Over the years, she has designed multiple Parade and Showcase homes, and her projects can be found from coast to coast.
Tonya has been featured in numerous publications and has authored two books on interior design.
Tonya draws inspiration from so many talented designers that it’s hard to narrow it down. Ann Marie Barton, Denton House Design, Abby Hetherington, and Robert G. McArthur are just a few. Her favorite architects include Eric Olsen Design, Reid Smith Architects, and Wade Design Architects.
