Q: What’s your design philosophy?
Using the location of a project as inspiration is my design philosophy. Taking cues from the surrounding environment is key to creating the perfect space that will fit a client’s lifestyle.
Q: What is the best advice you could give a new designer?
The best piece of design advice I can give is “less is more”. The basis of great interior design is character and function. Achieving both of these fundamentals as simply and creatively as possible will result in a project with purpose; that is beautiful yet refined.
Q: What’s a recent project you’re particularly proud of?
A recent project that was especially rewarding, was helping clients who had lost their home to a devastating fire during renovation. The couple contacted me after they started to re-build and I was able to help them re-use some of the salvaged materials and add new design elements to create a luxury home that exceeded their expectations.
Q: Where do you get your inspiration?
I use anything and everything around me for inspiration. It might be as simple as a fabric swatch or as complex as the amazing view outside a window.
