My interest in design began in childhood with my passion for rearranging furniture and my love of color. Since then, I have turned my passion into a profession.
My design style is inspired by my love of pattern, texture and color. I enjoy creating gracious, stylish, comfortable interiors. I believe in an updated, fresh approach with each project being unique and different. As a wife and mother of four, I understand the livability factor and wear and tear of everyday living. I bring an energetic sense of style and fun to every project.
I credit my mother with her artistic talent and attention to detail combined with her love of family and home.
My past and present projects include both renovations and design of residences and villas in Washington, Maryland, Virginia, Chicago, Indianapolis, Naples, Palm Beach, Bermuda and the Caribbean.
