Liz Toombs: Sorority House Interior Decorating

Liz Toombs owns the award-winning decorating firm PDR Interiors. She is a Certified Interior Decorator who, along with her team, offers comprehensive services for private residences as well as sorority houses across the country. The team’s work can be seen on over 70 campuses spread across 22+ states. Liz has been quoted by notable media outlets including The Huffington Post, The Associated Press, and She and the company were featured on MSNBC’s Your Business.

Liz is a graduate of the University of Kentucky and is very involved in giving back to the Lexington community through the Junior League and other local charities. Mentoring other women is a keystone of PDR, something Liz learned to value through her fraternity experience as an alumna of Alpha Gamma Delta.  Helping to preserve that experience for current and future members of women’s organizations is what drives Toombs to focus on sorority housing projects.
