As the daughter of a ceramic artist and architect, Taylor's interest in design was fostered from a young age. She began an early career in the Bay Area as a graphic designer and co-founder of a silkscreen apparel company. In 2005 Taylor relocated to Los Angeles and embarked on her path as an interior designer, working as a project manager for several high end firms. Those formative years imparted an appreciation for the craft as well as lessons in space planning, scale, color theory, custom furniture design, art and antique procurement, and budget oversight. Taylor founded her own company in 2011 with an office based in northeast Los Angeles.
