SAVANNAH: I have always had a passion for decorating. After having my son and becoming a stay at home mom, I was constantly looking for ways to improve my own home. Once I was ready to do more, I decided to expand this interest to outside clients. I created a website, told all my friends and family what I was up to, and Cantrell Interiors was born!
ME: Were did you attend school and what is your degree in?
SAVANNAH: I attended the University of Memphis and received my bachelor’s in psychology. Although I was accepted into the graduate program, I decided to stay at a job I loved at a trading investment firm where I had worked while in school.
I’ve learned not to make too many plans. If I had made plans and stuck to them, there is no way I’d be in the situation I’m in today. I never planned on leaving my office job, and honestly, I never planned on being an interior decorator. I’m trying to be open to what comes my way and take it one day at a time.
ME: What is your favorite quote?
SAVANNAH: “I deeply believe that a beautiful décor can have a beneficial influence on our lives” – Albert Hadley
