I engage clients and listen with warmth, humor, honesty and cheer. My design philosophy has always been to ask my clients the question, “What’s your style?” I help them answer that question and implement the answer throughout their space. I listen to their wants and needs, their likes and dislikes and the desired function. I consider the presentation of the space itself, the existing conditions and the site. Together, we determine a scope of work and begin sharing ideas to move forward.
I love working with homeowners, architects and builders. I’ve been told that I’m remembered for my color work. I am very passionate about supporting local, fair trade and eco-friendly people and products. I have a long list of artists and craftspeople with whom I regularly do business. I most enjoy clients who want to be involved in the process and learn about good design.
I enjoy working with business owners, architects and builders. I have a particular love for restaurant projects. I have a unique perspective because, prior to my interior design career, I was in the restaurant business myself. I ran the front of the house for two very successful restaurants, so I understand the importance of atmosphere, timing and flow in a very specific way.
The Project Process
Each project begins with an initial meeting where we focus on getting to know each other and the scope of work. During this meeting we can determine if we are a good fit for each other. Assuming we are, there are a number of ways to proceed. Together we determine what path and level of involvement will best suit the client’s needs, personality and work style. Each project is tailored to each individual client, so that we will have the most successful result and a lot of fun getting there!
One-time consults are also available for folks who are looking for a quick fix – a simple color consult, help with art selection and placement, or a fresh perspective on the potential of their space. Contact me to book a one-time consult today.
