Q: What’s your design philosophy?
To create meaningful, original spaces that will reflect my client’s personality through the juxtaposition of the old with the new, the refined with the rugged, the muted with the bold.
Q: What is a recent project that you’re proud of and why?
A commercial office space that is now occupying an old quonset hut-type building (old lumber warehouse). Many of the original features such as the wood floors and the barrel ceiling were kept in tact and enhanced by new features such as wood beams, a soaring stone fireplace, floor to ceiling windows and sliding interior barn doors.
Q: What’s the best piece of design advice you have received?
- Good design does not have to cost and arm and a leg.
- Design around the things you love.
- Use a little “unexpected” in every room, or something common in an unexpected way.
