Terra’s intrigue and appreciation for design, painting, and art began at a young age. Her earliest memories are being in awe of the physical space around her. She was captivated by the colors, textures and light. Once Terra discovered how these elements affect the world and those who encounter them in design school, she fell in love and never turned back.
After a decade in the industry and a lifetime of appreciating beauty in all its forms, Terra launched her own firm, Terra Mimikakis Design. Here, she is able to embrace her love for design as an art form, both residentially and commercially. Inspired by design’s ability to artistically and visually tell the story of a person, company, or place, Terra believes that each project has a life of its own. She looks at each space with new excitement and enthusiasm for its potential, focusing on the smallest details in order to create exceptional spaces.
When she’s not creating beautiful interiors, Terra enjoys working in the community garden, entertaining, and restoring homes in the historic Norwood neighborhood with her husband Nikolaus and daughter Aveline.
