My life of global residence and travel has informed and enriched my design aesthetic. Whether it is the architecture of London, Majolica ceramics and lush textiles of Italy, the colorful and casual lifestyles of Australia and California; these experiences have lead to a depth and design evolution that will benefit my clients.
As a child I spent countless hours at my local fabric store completely consumed and engrossed in the worlds of textiles and arts & crafts. Soon I was on to fabric, ceramic and jewelry design which lead me to a degree in Interior Design. This background and training enables me to offer inspired design work of the highest caliber supported by vendors and tradesmen with decades of experience and a track record of excellence.

My initial visit and conversation with you is complementary. Whether you want help with one room or a whole house, sophisticated or down to earth, I can assist, inspire and guide you through the process and the thousands of choices available today. Items purchased from me are on a “cost plus” basis which is a percentage added to the wholesale price. I offer discounts off retail prices for my clients, especially for furniture and fabrics. Generally, hourly design fees apply to AutoCAD plans and elevations, renderings and color and art consultations. I pride myself on being sensitive to all budgets and am happy to satisfy clients who want a "high-low" strategy.
I am devoted to creatively combining all the needs a home has to fulfill: to be organized and function in a modern world, to serve as a storehouse for your family’s memories and cherished belongings and to be appealing so you feel happy and emotionally supported by your interior environment.
