Grand opening planned for Yeager Design and Interiors
SCOTT DEPOT -- Yeager Design and Interiors, a new business located at 100-3 Great Teays Blvd., Scott Depot, will host a grand opening celebration beginning at 1 p.m. on Saturday, Nov. 2.
Owner Elizabeth Yeager Cross, who is a lifelong native of the Teays Valley Area, said she couldn't imagine having her design business anywhere else. She also says she has known since she was a child that she would one day have her own design business.
"I've always had a flare for design and fashion and took probably too much pleasure as a little girl, in rearranging rooms and designing every holiday and event our family ever had," she said in a news release from the Putnam County Chamber of Commerce.
Yeager Cross has a business degree and a four-year degree in interior architecture from Virginia Tech and the University of Charleston. She interned in commercial design at Carolina Business Interiors in Charlotte, N.C.
"My mission in commercial interiors has always been to bring personality to a space that welcomes your customer and leaves a special imprint with them that makes the space memorable and significant," she said in the release.
Some local commercial designs by Yeager Design & Interiors include: Broyles Jewelers, Yeager & Smith Medicine, Aliff & Lao OBGYN, and Marshall University Plastic and Reconstructive Surgeries.
"Each one of my clients is unique and special to me. It is never my objective to give someone else a space that reflects 'my style,' rather to create a space that articulates my client's design desires in a way that they never knew were possible."
Still, she says her No. 1 love is residential design. Just after graduating from UC, she began working at Kitchens by Woodys in Barboursville.
"Kitchen and Bath Design is so much more of a personal design than you would think. After all, the kitchen is the heart of your home. It's where you nurture your family, entertain, and it truly serves as the most multi-function space in your home. It has to look effortlessly and classically stylish, and most of all work efficiently for you and your family's needs," she said.
Yeager Design and Interiors offers design consultation services on commercial and residential design, kitchens, baths, lighting, flooring, space planning, outdoor/landscape design, as well as staging homes for sale. The showroom specializes in furniture, fabrics, accessories, lighting, rugs, and artwork.
"My goal is to transform every space I design into a fun, fabulous, and affordable work of art," Yeager Cross said. "Whether you walk into Yeager Design and Interiors looking for help from A-Z or you're just looking for a fresh accessory to spice up your space, I'm confident that together we can make your design dreams come true."
She is married to Brett Cross and they have a son, George.
