Describe your go-to style:
My go-to style is modern eclectic. I love mixing neutral palettes with pops of color and mixing textures.
What drives you to design?
Knowing that I not only create beautiful spaces, but can also affect how someone feels in them, makes me want to create spaces for people that will make them feel more: happy, confident, or fun, drives me to design.
From where do you draw most of your inspiration?
I draw most of my inspiration from nature when designing; but if not nature than usually a concept, for example playful or strength, something that does not have an obtainable vision, but can be created once you put the right imagination and creativity to it.
