Describe your go-to style:
My go-to style is eclectic. I like spaces that are unique, fun, and interesting. Depending on the space, I do love glamour and elegance. Most of all, I value organization and functionality in a space.. It is important not to make any room too busy, but must also keep you interested while your eyes float around the space, without being overwhelmed.
What drives you to design?
My creativity and organizational skills drives me to design. Immediately when I see a space I am going to tackle, my mind starts placing furniture and objects into a spot that makes sense. Functionality in a room is very important to me.
From where do you draw most of your inspiration?
From learning and traveling. I am the type of person who is also interested in learning new things. My eagerness to learn and experience as much as possible is a big motivation. At the University of Rhode Island, where I attended college, I learned design basics and fundamentals from experts in the field. While traveling abroad, I learned first hand about culture and how design perspective is so different in other countries around the world. The streets of Florence, where I lived for four months, are filled with art history. This was truly inspiring for me everyday.
