Over the years many clients have posed the question, “How do you figure it all out and pull it all together”.
As with any profession, I not only have training but the desire to pursue my calling. I love what I do and the satisfaction of being able to create beauty while telling my client’s story is sheer joy.
Design is very much like composing a novel or work of art. Word by word or brush stroke by brush stroke the visual is evoked. A foundation or baseline is the first course of action. Questioning how the house functions and the people within the home. Are there bad design issues that need problem-solving?
Taking the architectural features into consideration is always a driving force to the overall outcome. If I am working on a newly constructed French Style home or a 200-year-old Greek Revival style residence my approach will differ, but I always take a cue from the architectural elements. “The house tells you what to do!”
Drawings are created to illustrate flow, proportion, and scale. Custom designs such as cabinetry and millwork are considered. Being creative and using tools of the trade such as stone, tile, metals, wood, hardware, finishes, colors, lighting, textures, art & antiques I can see in my mind’s eye how the layers of interiors will unfold. No stone unturned – no detail overlooked. I am dedicated to opening my client’s minds to the creative process and offering them interiors that will bring them a lifetime of happiness.
