1. Were you always interested in design?
I would say that I was definitely a creative kid. I loved sketching clothing designs and I was really into graphic design as well. It was not until High school, after taking some Architectural Drafting classes, that I realized I loved interior design.
2. How would you define your design style?
If I had to describe my current style, I would say its eclectic. I love blending together classic antiques, glam, and mid century modern elements.
3. Who or what influences your work?
I am inspired a lot by the fashion industry; more specifically runway shows and fashion photography. I am also influenced by designers like Kelly Wearstler, Jonathan Adler, and Michel Boyd.
4. What’s a must-have item you make sure your interior designs include?
I feel that any and every space should have some type of art on the walls. Adding art to your space is a simple way to add some interest. I also love adding plants and flowers to all of my spaces as a way to freshen them up.
5. What is a recent design trend that you’re loving at the moment?
A trend that I’m loving right now is the sort of luxe minimalistic look that uses natural woods finishes, marbles, brass/bronze metals, warm grey tones. Restoration Hardware’s new RHmodern line is a great example of this.
6. If you had to pick a favorite room in your home, which would it be and why?
My bedroom is my favorite space in my home just because of how warm and cozy it is. I wanted to feel enveloped in my space so I went with dark walls, large textural throw pillows, and ambient lighting. My room also multifunctions as my home office so I created a small office nook with my favorite gold leg table that I found at a vintage shop.
7. What is your favorite design magazine or blog and why?
I love Architectural Digest, Dwell, Desire to Inspire, and My Domaine.
8. What is the best thing about being an interior designer?
I think it is great that we as designers get a chance to create art that is functional and habitable.
9. What was your first big project and what was your favorite part?
I am currently working on two separate night club projects, with two other designers, that I am very excited about. The clubs are not expected to open until sometime next year, but my favorite part so far is seeing the plain box that we began with, starting to take form.
10. How do you manage challenges that come up during a design project?
I try not to panic and think things through clearly to find the best solution to whatever the challenge may be.
11. Why do you like online interior design?
I would say that I like being an online interior designer because the process is not as drawn out and stressful as offline projects can often be. It also allows me to be very flexible with my time which is great.
