From where do you draw most of your inspiration?
I draw my design inspiration from all the great influencers I have gotten to work for in the past. I started my career with Ralph Lauren, where I fell in love with antiques and learned that every small detail is important and I always mix some classic pieces into my projects. On the other end of the spectrum, I learned from the avant garde master, Phillipe Starck who isn't afraid to take risks and use modern, unique shapes and art to tell stories.
What drives you to design?
I love creating and seeing everything come together. I also love to design spaces that make you feel good. Design isn't just about creating a beautiful space. The fun of it for me is designing for my clients. Getting to know them and learning their personalities and then being inspired by them is what drives me to love designing.
Tell us your biggest design secret:
Layers! To really finish a space, you need layers and special touches. They don't have to be expensive, but they should be fun, have interesting patterns, or be in a color you are in love with. There are no rules with layering and you can never have enough throw pillows!
