Caroline Jacobs Toms was born and raised in South Africa. She received her diploma from The Inchbald School of Design, London, England. Upon graduating, she worked for Designers Guild for over fifteen years as an interior designer for showrooms and private clients, travelling all over Western Europe and Asia. Her love of Design and color schemes stems from her many years working with Tricia Guild, founder and CEO of Designers Guild. She moved to New York City when she married Nicholas Toms. They raised three girls there -Catherine, Cosima and Clementine. Ms. Toms was very active as volunteer for her children's school and choir, while continuing to do freelance interior design projects in NYC, London, Montauk, Nassau, and Johannesburg. She is excited about their recent transition to Florida.
