LYNN TOKOPH, VICE PRESIDENT EPIC INTERIOR DESIGNS
I am a Michigan native and an entrepreneur at heart. Coming from a business/sales background and owning a couple other businesses, I’ve always loved and had an eye for design. I got the privilege to work with one of the best luxury custom builders in Michigan for about seven years where I designed and styled homes for friends, homeowners, executives, and some pro athletes.
I decided to make a drastic change and move across country to Austin, Texas in 2017. That’s when I met my current partner, Scott Ruzich, who has owned Epic Smart Homes for the past fourteen years. Knowing that technology is the future and an important part of everybody’s lifestyles, I knew that teaming up with a tech company would be a win- win for all.
Not only do we plan, design, provide cad or 3D renders, and décor, we also have a staff of technicians who program, integrate and install smart technology. Some examples include smart systems, lighting controls, motorized shades, home theatres, security, and we represent many high- end manufacturers with some amazing products that are hard to find.
I definitely have my own unique style that I lean towards. I am a big fan of classic traditional styles mixed with some modern glam, some beautiful crystals thrown in the mix and I love color. Black is my preferred color because it’s timeless, goes with anything and it will always draw a look of richness and elegance.
