CURE Senior Designer Cori Dyer’s Personal House Tour!

What a treat! Take a glimpse into a life long designer Cori Dyer’s personal home.  Her electric and colorful style pairs layers and layers of interesting artful pieces and marries them with strong and thoughtful design.  Her love of art and travel are apparent in every space.  Her “style” has evolved through the years…..however, always colorful, whimsy, artful and beautiful.

Her latest project: A full kitchen renovation!

            “Initially, I had to have the “upgrade” of thermafoil cabinets, but that was 25 years ago…it was time to bring my trendy kitchen space up to my current design standards! Ann Sachs…. Kelly Wearstler tile were the inspiration for the entire space. Eliminating walls between cabinetry, appliances, and a desk no longer necessary, were just the beginning. Adding a warm morel wood tone to these new cabinets and integrating a wine/coffee station were just some of the updates. I decided to keep the “White Kitchen” on the north side and add the same warm wood tone to the hood. A fresh version of the traditional farmhouse sink, Grohe faucet and Rio Blanc Quartzite were all part of the design. To keep the space open I added floating shelves both on the north side of the white kitchen and again above the wine refrigerator. A great spot in incorporate my love of artwork and travel!”

                 “I love art. My grandfather was an artist and renowned iron worker and my mother dabbled in paint and pottery. SO when I see pieces that strike me, I can’t stop myself.
I needed a backdrop for these collections and although I have white walls in most of the other spaces, I didn’t want them here. Inkwell colored walls and a mixture of traditional and modern pieces that have taken me a lifetime to collect, are all layered in this space….This space is truly reflective of my “Gemini” sign!”

After graduating from the University of Missouri, K.C., I spent my days raising our three boys. However, my interest in fashion and interior design kept me reading and taking classes in the design field. After working in a high-end retail fashion store in St. Louis, I realized that putting together assorted fabrics, textures and styles was a passion. After decorating my own home, and those of family, friends, neighbors and co-workers, I realized that my passion and "eye" for fashion work equally well in interior design. I have built some of my strongest relationships through the opportunity of creating spaces for my clients over the years. I will learn your lifestyle and taste, and working with you, I will create a design that exceeds your expectations.
