About Us

Helping people love their homes

“We love watching a family walk into their new kitchen for the first time, seeing their personality reflected in the design, and knowing they will be able to live in and use the space for years to come.”

We are passionate about creating environments that are both beautiful and functional.  We also believe that the experience you have in designing your space is as important as the result.

Studio A&C is a design studio that combines our love for what we do with our dedication to customer excellence. We see our customers as true partners in every project.

We’re experienced, innovative designers that know how to get the job done to create extraordinary spaces. We can oversee your entire build or remodel project or work with your architect or contractor. You can trust that your design project will be managed with attention to detail, integrity, and quality results.

We’ve both raised our families here in West Michigan and love the variety of environments our area offers. We find inspiration for design from our local communities, the natural spaces around us, and the people that call West Michigan home.

As a mother of four, Tara knows firsthand the importance of creative and inspiring designs.  She has spent the last 15 years perfecting those ideas that bring together the needs of the homeowner with creative and inspiring layouts.
