Blog Debut!

As many of you already know, my interior design business, The Pankonien Group, has kept me very busy lately!  With two kids and a super supportive husband to keep up with, designing the structure and furnishing of my own homes through the years has allowed me to delight in my passion. Renovating and reorganizing my homes to best suit my family’s changing needs was something I soon realized came naturally to me.  I renovated my first home in 2000, and in 2004 I built my first custom home. It was through these experiences I truly knew this hobby could blossom into a fun career and creative outlet for me!  I've been so blessed the last several years, as my business is steadily growing and my client list has expanded way beyond my expectations. My new blog will showcase some of my past work, as well as regularly update my friends, family and client base on current projects and my favorite products and inspirations!
