Describe your design aesthetic in a few words?
Bright, open, functional, eclectic.
What do you love about using antiques in your designs?
I like to mix and match tasteful antiques with modern basics to create moments of intrigue. Antiques and vintage pieces help soften the modern aspects of my designs.
What inspires you?
Books, photography, art, museums, and architecture as well as my clients and the lives they lead, inspire me and help form the design direction of each individual project.
What can you never have too much of?
A good set of sheets! Bedding is incredibly important to me.
If you could design for a fictional character who would it be and why?
I would design for Indiana Jones because I feel my inner self-leans masculine and I think it would be fun to tap into that extensive inventory of antiques.
