The community aspect of Circaphiles has been invaluable for expediting our design process! Just today I was on the platform looking at a message board regarding large construction projects and was able to gather information quickly. If you are looking for a group of designers to share and champion your designs you have come to the right place!”

about our founder Genevieve Trousdale and Circaphiles
Leveraging 16 years of experience and successful collaborations with prestigious industry-leading designers including Michael Berman and Timothy Corrigan – Genevieve has coordinated residential projects up to 50,000 square feet from conception, through execution to installation. While cultivating strong relationships and connections internationally, she has, and continues to, carefully curate an impressive list of notable, trusted vendors and collaborators.
As a published designer, who has navigated all aspects of the ID world, Genevieve understands that the path from student to successful business owner is no walk in the park. Recognizing her challenges and successes have equally contributed to who she is as a savvy ID pro today prompted her desire to make it easier for those wishing to grow and rise in the industry. And her dream of creating a collaborative, encouraging design community is now a reality with Circaphiles. “If we rely on one another, we can lift up the industry’s reputation as a whole,” says Genevieve.
Genevieve invites professionals and students to Circaphiles to learn from what she’s been privileged to gain. This elite community offers members access to meticulously documented processes to run projects and valuable connections that make managing and growing an ID business infinitely easier.

2020 was a pivotal year for interior designers. When showrooms shut down we were forced to find creative ways to access via Zoom calls and virtual appointments. With projects around the country and limited travel, we relied heavily on our contacts and networks both near and far. Circaphiles came to the rescue with multiple missions via vendor presentations.”
