UK alumna creates dream spaces across the country

Toombs's company soared when a fraternity at UK reached out to her for help with their house, and from there her company has thrived on word of mouth and referrals.

LEXINGTON, Ky.—

Everyone hopes for success after they graduate from college, but for University of Kentucky alumna Liz Toombs, this success became a reality.

A Louisville, Kentucky, native, Toombs came to UK for an undergraduate degree in merchandising, apparel and textiles from the College of Agriculture, Food and Environment. During her time at UK she was a member of Alpha Gamma Delta sorority.

After graduating from UK, she began working for a local countertop manufacturer selling countertops to homeowners, builders and designers. Toombs soon joined Decor & You, a franchise who helped customers with their interior needs. During this time, she became a certified interior decorator. In April of 2009 she started her own company called Polkadots & Rosebuds Interiors which she rebranded in 2017 to PDR Interiors.

“I feel so fortunate to do creative work that I love every day. Our clients mean the world to me!”
