From new build construction to whole home renovations, Parkinson said "I am passionate about creating beautiful and functional spaces and that's something I love to pass on to clients I work with daily. That shared passion is what makes a collaboration great and why I love what I do." Discover how Parkinson has brilliantly incorporated our lighting throughout her projects!
