Meet  The  Team

Tammie Gandarillas

Owner | Principal Designer

Studio G Interior Design (formerly Gandarillas Interiors) was founded as a natural extension of Tammie's love of design as well as her BA in Interior Design and Minor in Art. Her drive to learn all aspects of design started early when as a student she chose an internship with a furniture firm. Her goal was to learn about the manufacturing of furniture with a focus on construction specifications and quality. Tammie believes that furnishings are a integral part of design. She holds a wealth of experience in part from working with two local design firms. During her career, her commitment to learning the underpinnings of design excellence and superior construction led her to work with a kitchen design firm. It was there she expanded her knowledge not only of kitchen and bath design, but of cabinet construction.

 

Tammie is truly a detail oriented, bottom-to-top, specialized designer. She understands that the finished project not only needs to look good, but be great through excellence in design and planning, selection of high-quality products, and experienced implementation from start to finish.

Monica Handfelt

Interior Designer

Monica inherited the joy of creativity from her mother and design partner, Tammie Gandarillas. As a young girl, she was fascinated with textiles and design, and taught herself to make purses and dresses. She developed a deep interest in fashion while experimenting with sewing and styling, and wanted to expand her creativity further. 

 

While earning a BS in Fashion Merchandising from University of North Texas, Monica worked as a wardrobe stylist in Dallas and interned in New York City. It was not lost on her that many of the principles and elements of her plan of study overlapped with Interior Design curriculum. This peaked her interest to pursue interiors, and after a couple of years post-grad, Monica was led back to Studio G to practice Interior Design. It was during this transition she discovered that not only did she like interior design, she was good at it.

 

Monica brings a relaxed, but elegant style to Studio G. She has a detail-oriented approach in her designs and process, enjoys listening to the needs of her clients, and guides them into timeless style.
