It takes audacity to start a business from scratch. It also takes brains, judgment, humility and the ability to laugh along the way. Andrea attracts talented designers who thrive in an atmosphere of hard work, irreverence and fun. After more than 25 years in business, she knows how to b.s. and finesse often at the same time. No bull.
Andrea earned a Bachelor of Fine Arts in Interior Design at Colorado State University. She founded Bainbridge Design in 1983 and has yet to reach her peak (she claims).
Senior Designer/Project Manager
It’s easy to see why clients like Rachel. She is a friendly, insightful, easy-going problem solver (and with three young kids, it’s a good thing). She never drops the ball, never misses a detail and never loses sight of the big picture. She’s also an excellent time manager, meaning the dog gets a good walk every day. Lucky dog. Lucky us.
Rachel graduated from the University of Oregon in Interior Architecture. She's a gifted designer with a passion for space planning projects the larger the better.
Heidi’s passion is creative concept development – for large, complex projects and small intricately detailed ones. She is funny, confident and not afraid to think outside the box. She hates to shop, and oddly enough, hiccups about once an hour. She doesn’t scare easily, so that cure won’t work.
Heidi has a Bachelor of Arts in Interior Design (Magna Cum Laude) from Washington State University. She has experience in large, complex projects as well as small, highly detailed designs for corporate and commercial clients.
Known around here as ‘the designer formerly known as an engineer,” Eliza is a curious blend of art and science. Before discovering her passion and talent for design, she worked in high tech. She has an advanced degree in Intelligent Robotics. Seriously. She rocks at math, creates delicious appetizers, and makes no apologies for her love of disco dancing. She gets down.
At USC, Eliza earned both a B.S. in Computer Engineering and an M.S. in Computer Science. She also has a B.F.A. in Interior Design from The Art Institute of Portland. She spent six years at Intel before returning to school for Interior Design.
