Relationships are at the heart of my work. I have been blessed to be able to work with so many amazing clients that have trusted me to design their home with projects that last for years to come.

My Interior Design Degree has been defined by my focus on clients. This personal page gives me the opportunity to tell you more about myself and my design practices. It has been my privilege to design homes and form lasting relationships for more than 30 years. My projects range from construction remodel, both small and large, to simple room re-do. Your home is more than just a house, it is an expression of what’s important to you. It should be a statement to family, friends, and neighbors of who you are. I strive to go beyond just design and make a lifestyle statement.
The collaborative nature of design is essential for every project. Rather than taking charge, I will look to you as my partner. My role is to listen to your vision and answer any questions or concerns so you feel confident making decisions for your project. Some of my clients know what they want, while others don’t. During our first consultation, we will go through styles that you like and dislike. We will also cover your day-to-day needs and discuss lifestyle habits. These important elements will give me a starting point to building your dream space that will functions to your needs without sacrificing style.
Techniques & Specialties
If your home is cluttered, I can assist in minimizing for a stress free lifestyle. I often recommend moving out your accessories and living with the bare minimum. Each accessory has to earn it’s place in your home by providing purpose. This tactic helps determine what to keep and what to remove.
2. Window Fashions:
The finishing touch. Window fashions can make or break a space. Shopping for the perfect drapery or shade can sometimes be overwhelming. I have dedicate a lot of my work to finding the perfect window treatments for any space based on style, sun control, and privacy needs.
3. Space Planning:
It’s all about balance, scale and proportions when mixing patterns and textures together, as well as the selection of the right size pieces for your space. When these three key factors find their place, your space will come to life.
4. Timeless Style:
I have a personal love for timeless style. “Non-negiotables,” or family heirlooms are apart of your personal story. These historic pieces can be some of the most beautiful, I help work these into your current needs and update your style while including these timeless treasures.
