Tam is the “IT” girl for creating historically accurate, yet vibrant, spaces in significant historic properties. She is the Principal of TAM STONE Properties, developing stunning event venues across the country, and the lead designer of her eponymous design firm.
Tam’s training in Interior Design & Architecture Studies at the prestigious Parsons School of Design, coupled with a Ph.D. in Process Design & Quality Management provide the foundation for her cohesive, multi-disciplinary approach to design that consistently results in environments that are striking and sophisticated.
At the core of Tam’s design philosophy is her belief that the foundation of any good design lies in understanding the architectural and historical context of a space. This philosophy, coupled with an unwavering attention to detail, strong aesthetic for balance, proportion, rhythm and texture, culminates in spaces that are richly layered and feel at once modern and curated.
With over 20 years of interior design experience, Tam has served as lead designer and general contractor for period properties listed on the National Register of Historic Places, as well as a wide range of projects including remodel and decoration of large-scale manor homes, urban garden apartments, mountain/beach retreats, collegiate sorority houses and corporate offices. In addition to her creative design work, Tam is a talented feature speaker and appears regularly on the KCTV5 (CBS) Better Kansas City Show. Tam has also published a book and numerous articles on process design and quality management that are in distribution both nationally and internationally.
