We are excited to welcome Patty Steele to the Seigle’s team! Patty is a Sales and Design Consultant at our various locations. We sat down with Patty to get to know what makes her tick—and she’s funny! Read on to find out more about her love of relaxation, her mad hosting skills, and an exciting item she’s getting ready to cross off her bucket list.
What is your favorite thing about working at Seigle’s?
Seigle’s is a family, both in name and operation. We have fun and truly get to share in the enjoyment of what we do every day.
What is your favorite project you’ve worked on and why?
I have a passion for historical restoration and vintage homes, so my favorite project was an 1870s Victorian home restoration, where every detail was made to represent the original glory of the property. It was a long process—and sometimes an arduous one—but the finished project was worth every bit of time.
What is your favorite option in today’s kitchens?
My favorite is that there are so many options. From ultra-modern and sleek to vintage-painted and warm to storage galore and beautiful personal touches—every kitchen is an individually signed masterpiece.
Over your time in the business, what’s the worst design trend you’ve encountered?
Luckily I got to miss the avocado green appliances trend. However, I’m pretty sure the pastel/teal/paint-streak look of 80s is the equivalent of shoulder pads and excessively big hair, and I’m glad they all stayed right where they belong—in the 80s.
If we came to your house for dinner, what would you prepare for us?
I’m not much of a cook, but I always have wine, and I’m great at ordering pizza!
What’s your guilty pleasure?
You can sometimes find me binge watching TV shows when I should definitely be more productive. Hunkering down on the couch for two or three hours when there are carpets to be vacuumed and dishes to be washed always seems like much more fun.
What is the most thrilling thing you’ve ever done?
I’m not much of an adventurer, but I did get to shoot a cannon at a Civil War reenactment once and that was pretty cool—or at least really loud. The next runner up would be playing Elvis Presley’s drum kit at the Rockabilly Museum in Jackson, TN.
What is your favorite room in your house?
The family room. It’s pretty and I’m proud of that, but more importantly, it’s where we gather, talk about our days, watch silly movies and TV shows, and, well, be a family. Definitely the best room in the house.
If you had a 25 hour day while everyone else has only 24, what would you do with your extra time?
I believe that’s one extra episode of Game of Thrones I can fit into the day. I’d like to say that I’d do something glamorous with it, but it probably involves sleep. Or pizza.
What is the top item on your bucket list?
I’ve had two bucket list items that I’ve been waiting to cross off for a long time—one was to see Paul Simon (my late dad’s favorite) in concert, and the other to become a foster parent. I was lucky enough to cross the concert off my list this summer, and the second process is just starting. It’s an opportunity I’m truly excited for—to be able to give back in an area I was more than blessed with, family.
