“Listening is the key to successfully interpreting your vision of an ideal interior experience . Combining organization with sensitivity, and clear communication with all persons contributing to the creation of a space, are essential. Simple elegance, punctuated by exotic details characterize my design aesthetic. I embrace contemporary minimalism , while enjoying the contrast a well placed antique may provide in a stark, monochromatic space. Incorporating imaginative organic shapes, live plants, original artwork and exquisite textiles, I focus on balance to achieve a playfully serene ambience.
