CAROL SMITS

Founder & CEO

I believe "Every great design starts with a pencil and paper" (Harrison Weber). With this basic but important design philosophy, Designs of the Times has focused our business in the field of the Art and Design for over 25 years. As owner, Interior designer, and artist, I have had opportunity over that time to create beautiful interiors with the help of my husband and a great design team. My personal attributes involve full service Interior design, color and product selection, working with new construction, kitchen and bath remodels, floor plans, furniture selection, art, accessories, and a truly favorite part of design for me… creating beautiful custom window treatments. Along with these, I have been blessed with opportunities to bring specialty painting, fine art ,and murals into many homes and businesses.

At Designs of the Times, it is our goal to truly discover a look that fits your lifestyle.

Let me introduce you to our team…

As my husband and supportive team member, Dennis has accomplished himself as a window treatment installation specialist for privacy blinds and shades as well as custom drapery and hardware. He has been working in that role outside of his full time job for the last 25 years. He recently retired from his full time job and opened his own business working in renovation and remodel projects.

Mary completes our team. A beautiful person inside and out, Mary has not only a love for the field of interior design, but she also brings a wealth of experience with over 30 years shining her administrative and organizational skills.
