About Us 

Mona Thompson & Talena Ray

We are sisters, business partners, and best friends.  Our aesthetic is traditional design paired with soft modern and European influences that incorporate strong architectural elements into the mix. We describe it as a clean, more contemporary expression of the past.

As both antique dealers and interior designers, we have a vision for our work that reaches beyond the obvious choices when selecting furnishings, materials, special finishes, fabrics and colors.  We love to use found objects that will be unique to our clients, yet the most important thing  we do is to help them interpret their own personal style.  

Though we share a love for many of the same design elements, we interpret them differently in our own homes. However, as far as our work goes, we definitely complement each other. Oftentimes, one of us will pick up where the other leaves off.  By the time we have tossed design ideas back and forth, they have been well-edited before the client ever sees them.   At Providence Design, we like to think you get the best of both of us.  

We look forward to getting to know you!
