ESTERO, FL- Interior Designer Sharon Gilkey has been named Miromar Design Center’s January 2014 Designer of Distinction. Sharon has been in the interior design business for more than 25 years and is the principal designer of Orlando based Montanna & Associates. She is a professional member of the American Society of Interior Designers, and a licensed Florida Interior Designer as well as a licensed residential contractor. Sharon was previously named a Designer of Distinction in 2012.
“The convenience of Miromar Design Center is invaluable to my business,” Gilkey said. “The showrooms are first-class and staffed with high caliber professionals. I use Miromar Design Center for tile, cabinets, closets, furniture, fabrics and accessories for my design projects in Naples and Orlando. Whether the project is contemporary, coastal, transitional or traditional, I can always find exactly what I need.”
Gilkey’s firm is renowned for luxury residential interiors, architectural detail, lighting and construction. Her focus is to create dynamic living environments rather than static furnished spaces. Gilkey says the team approaches each project with personal service to create a rewarding and unique design experience for every client from Orlando to Naples. As a licensed contractor, she has built numerous turnkey furnished luxury homes in the Orlando/Winter Park area, and she is uniquely positioned to see projects from blueprint to construction to the final window treatments and accessories.
