founder in memoriam
As a founding partner of Collaborative Design Group, Mickey Bufalini was equipped with a vast amount of experience which was gained from her challenging work in the architectural world, She developed a unique combination for an Interior Designer, one with a love of texture, colors, furniture and history, along with the ability to tie it to the architectural finishes and details required of both the exterior and interiors of a home. When viewing her work you won’t find a design that looks like another, instead you will find a variety of design styles, all executed expertly with a sensitivity to her clients needs and expectations.
Mickey would place particular importance on preparing her clients projects for construction, she guided, educated and documented all of their selections for the builder, keeping the construction moving forward and the budget in mind. Client satisfaction was the priority and with over 30 years of experience in the Interior Design Industry, Mickey gave each client the confidence that their project would be finished timely and with complete client fulfillment.
Mickey was married to an Architect and their architectural and design collaboration made her extremely adept in Architectural and Interior Specifications for new home construction. She was detail oriented and developed a one of a kind procedure for specification work that assures project accuracy. As former founder and Design Director for Collaborative Design Group Interiors, she built a formidable enterprise by encouraging creativity among her team of professionals who are consistently furthering their education in construction detail, interior design, and interior specification.
