Vail Valley’s Slifer Designs has new president

Vail, CO, Colorado

EDWARDS ” Yvonne Jacobs, an 18-year veteran of the interior design business, has been named the new president of Edwards, Colorado-based Slifer Designs.

According to Interior Design magazine, Slifer Designs is the third-largest residential design company in the country. Jacobs said she will continue to participate in the creative part of the business.

“The conceptual part of a job is the fun part,” she said.

But, Jacobs added, she has learned from her predecessor, company founder Beth Slifer, about how important the business side is and to always looks at each project from this perspective.

Jacobs joined Slifer Designs in 1997 after several years of working in New York and Denver, and felt she had moved back home. Still able to get her “city fix” every several months as she travels to meet clients, attend design shows, and research projects, she is able to stay inspired and on top of the lastest design movements.

And, she said, she still enjoys the pace of the industry.

“One of the things I like most about designing a home is that it is not a fast transaction,” Jacobs said.
