What inspired you to open Thomas Puckett Designs? Years ago, good friends purchased the Hamptons home of a Real Housewives of New York – Kelly Bensimon. Despite the fancy address, it needed a complete rehaul. When they asked for my help, I thought they wanted me to choose a paint color or a sofa. After some confusing conversations they said, “Thomas, you don’t get it, we want you to design the entire house.” A lightbulb went off in my head and I realized that I could have a legit interior and landscape design business.
