From where do you draw most of your inspiration?
I am highly influenced and inspired by culturally diverse environments and my many travels abroad, which have enriched my perspective as a designer and as a person. From the architecture, to the many colors, textures and patterns at the markets...I LOVE finding unique, global handicrafts to incorporate personality into my designs.
Tell us your biggest design secret:
My biggest design secret is all in the details. Layering in color, texture, and pattern in unexpected ways into an otherwise neutral canvas brings dimension into the space. Adding visual interest through handmade collections and accessories with paint color, pillows, and art in a chic and functional way creates personality and comfort.
We know you love designing, but what about it do you love most?
I love the challenge presented by each and every new design project. The courage and excitement to experiment with color, harmony and balance is the key to success. My clients inspire me to create spaces that reflect their personality, lifestyle, and needs...their home is their sanctuary.
