Associate

Bio

Driven by the idea that interiors should evolve directly from the design of a building, Sarah’s work is rooted in an appreciation of the architectural ideas behind a space. After architecture, Sarah’s design language is guided by clients, nature, light, and materials, whether in her native Australia, her adopted home of Jackson Hole, or elsewhere. She approaches every project with the idea of composing interiors conversant with their built and natural surroundings. 

Throughout her career, Sarah has been involved in many project types including residential, hospitality, and retail design. She graduated from Australia’s Whitehouse Institute of Design with a Diploma of Interior Design and immediately enrolled at the Design Centre Enmore for further study. After earning an Advanced Diploma at Enmore, Sarah joined Sydney-based interior architecture firm ODCM. Sarah moved to New York in 2006 and joined a pair of designers to create and execute high-end residential interior design and decoration throughout Manhattan. At the end of 2007 Sarah returned to Sydney in her previous role and quickly rose to become a senior interior designer, specializing in space planning, detailing, designing, and project management. In 2013, looking for new professional and personal challenges, Sarah and her husband moved to Jackson Hole, where she had been vacationing for over a decade. She soon joined CLB and in 2017 Sarah became an Associate.  In this role, she leads CLB’s interior design effort with a team of six designers who play an integral part in all CLB projects. Her vision supports the firm-wide goal of creating thoughtful, well considered spaces from early conceptualization, through construction documentation, and furnishings.
