Our home is our particular place in the world.
No two people are the same and there should be no two interior rooms the same. It is my responsibility as a designer to interpret my client’s personal style and life view and create a unique, comfortable place for them, a space that reflects where they have been, what books they have read, what artifacts they have collected, what colors make them happy.

My design is anchored in the belief that aesthetics and function are equally important. I start with my client’s comfort, the function of the space and then move onto space planning, color selection, lighting, fabrics, art and furniture.

It is important to work within my client’s budget and time frame. I help my clients design a plan that can be implemented over time to create a unified vision. One well designed room in a house can be as fulfilling as achieving a completely finished home.

I work with all design styles

East/West Style -- Contradictions can mesh so beautifully. Combining the sensibilities of the East and West, I strive to create a sense of tranquility, harmony and simple elegance, using subtle texture, clean lines, and the colors of nature.

See Global-style New Home

Traditional Style -- History and a sense of family is what makes this style so appealing. I relish working with beautiful brocades, silk, damask, Toile, and 18th Century French, English and American furniture. Traditional furnishings never need to be replaced or updated.

Contemporary Style -- Edgy, spare and current. This style is a perfect backdrop for large scale original art. Order reigns, everything has its place. This space is "cool" and "in charge".

Eclectic Style -- This style can do it all—mix your family heirlooms with a large Warhol, a Korean chest with an industrial chrome light and throw in an Ikea piece as well….it’s quirky, unexpected and clever. That is why we like it.

There are so many other wonderful interior design styles. I have always wanted a Swedish design project to work with soft blues and cream colors, crisp stripe cottons and simple, fine lined furniture. Is there anyone out there who’s game? Mexican, Tropical, Early American, kitsch, Retro, Western....?
