Mumtaz Zimbalist and Interior Designer Keri Peterson both say they felt an instant connection when they first met. They just didn’t know why…at first.
BOTHELL, Wash. — When Mumtaz Zimbalist and her husband purchased their new house in Bothell, they knew they would need help to make it feel like home.
A month before moving in, their 5th grade son Mika, born with cerebral palsy, died unexpectedly.
They hired Interior Designer Keri Peterson to make the transition as easy as possible.
“It was a sad time for them instead of this happy time moving in to this new home; and so she wanted to figure out a way to make this space happy and also find ways to honor their son’s memory,” explained Keri.
It wasn’t long into the first meeting before Keri realized she was there for a reason. Keri knows what it’s like to lose a child.
