From where do you draw most of your inspiration?
As a lover of mid-century modern and Scandinavian design, much of my inspiration comes from the beautiful spaces I see from Sweden, Denmark, etc. Other times a photograph or work of art is all I need to feel inspired—if it evokes a certain feeling, then I try to recreate that in the room.
We know you love designing, but what about it do you love most?
Creating beauty. When a project comes together in the right way, the space just sings. I want everyone to have that in their own home—I’m always amazed at the effect a well-designed, attractive space has on our emotional well-being.
Tell us your biggest design secret:
Simply put, plants! Bringing greenery into your space is one of the most cost-effective ways to totally transform a room. And with succulents as popular as they are now, you don’t need a green thumb to keep them thriving. But choosing the right plants for a room can be just as tricky as picking paint colors--you have to know what you're looking for.
