I believe a home should look like your personal story, not a catalog’s. I walk you through the entire design process from developing the interior concepts of your custom home, renovation or room to furnishing it with style and comfort. I work directly with builders and contractors to bring your vision to life. I anticipate and guide you through thousands of choices needed to make your space unique —like you. I provide impeccable architectural details and guide kitchen and bathroom designs to tailor your home to your needs. I want you to be happy and have an uncommonly fun adventure. I believe in respectful relationships with builders and vendors to ensure you get the best value. I love mixing materials, traveling for inspiration, and taking a fresh approach to interiors with sustainability and universal design in mind.
