Describe your design aesthetic in a few words?

We have a traditional sensibility which is accented by modern elements, fresh colors, patterns, and textures.  Our goal is to create beautiful, comfortable interiors which express our Client’s taste and lifestyle.

What do you love about using antiques in your designs?

Antiques are an integral part of our design. They provide the patina, character, and warmth that is essential in creating a sophisticated interior.  Through the use of our client’s antiques, or more recent acquisitions, we are able to further personalize our client’s aesthetic.

What inspires you?

We are inspired by the distinctiveness of antique furniture, the graceful curving back of a dining room chair, or the soft patina of a centuries-old chest.  It is also incredibly satisfying to find that perfect piece that either inspires the room or completes it. 

We are mesmerized from wall to floor with these incredible pattern choices and unique art! pieces!
