Describe your go-to style:
My go-to style is Mid-Century Modern. I love the clean lines and inviting proportions; the mix of modern manufacturing techniques and natural materials. To me Mid-Century is timeless because it takes the foundation of Modernism-- Form Follows Function-- and adds in charm and warmth that makes you want to spend time in that space.
From where do you draw most of your inspiration?
I draw bits of inspiration from all around me. I'm fascinated by the intersections between the natural world and our built environment. The focus of my inspiration changes for every project, just as the desires of each client are different.
What’s your prediction for the next big trend in design?
The past few years we've seen a big draw towards Scandinavian design and "Hygge," or creating cozy spaces, with a very subdued (mostly cream and gray) color palette. There's also been a rise of house plants being a big part of design.However I believe the next big design trend is going to bring back colorful interior accents and incorporate all those lovely plants. Comfy, colorful, and lively. Designer Justina Blakeney calls this style Jungalow.
