I believe the best interior design happens when the space reflects, enhances and inspires the people within it.
I believe in integrating function with the client in an inspirational and beautiful way.
I do not believe in static interiors that have nothing to do with how people really live or work.
Like a painting ... An interior should add and enhance your experience. And like a painting, the composition of a space is of utmost importance, reserving negative space as a counterpoint to all the busyness of our lives.
Like a painting ... A room might never be finished, but instead evolving, growing, and changing as our lives change. And like a painting, sometimes the imperfection, or the small flaw, the scratch on the wood table, the spot on the fabric, the ring on the marble, become the reminder to us that design is not perfection, but instead, a matter of perception.
