Dominique Tharp started Elegant Appoinments Interior Design in 2003, after she and her husband designed and built their own home in Alpine, California. After seeing the end result, a neighbor asked Dominique if she would help a friend with her interior design project. This became Dominique's first design job. Having earned her Bachelor's Degree in 1996 from San Diego State University in interior design, Dominique had the background knowledge, and her experience building her own home gave her the practical "know how" to act as a launching point for her own design business.

Working on a referral basis, she quickly grew her business and developed a loyal clientelle. In 2004, she joined the Associated Society of Interior Designers, or ASID, as an Allied Member, and continues that alliance today.

When not designing, Dominique enjoys living in Alpine with her husband and two children, tending her garden, and weekends at the ball fields, the family cabin, or enjoying time with good friends.
