I love my job! 2014 marks my 18th year as a business owner; and 30- something years in the industry. Beginning from retail design experience at Ethan Allen, to teaching courses on interior design, to now - where I do all phases of design work - I can't imagine doing anything else.
Design is personal, and I work with my clients to define their "style" and accomplish a functional space with their own personal aesthetic. The pictures you see here have ultimately pleased them, fulfilled their desires and goals, and continue to enrich their lives with beauty and order.
Yes! I do have definite ideas of "do's and don'ts", "rights and wrongs" and a sense of guidance that has developed from many types of experiences. Why else would one work with a design professional if not to have access to their expertise, knowledge and focus?
When we work together, you will find that I don't roll my eyes at much - except dysfunctional and mundane ceiling fixtures that builders call lighting. And also maybe torchieres . . .
look forward to meeting you -
