The grand dame of style Diana Vreeland once said “Most people haven’t got a point of view; they need to have it given to them.”
Do I have a point of view? Absolutely. Is there an aspect of my point of view that makes my design work different or unique? Absolutely. Do I have an aesthetic angle? Absolutely.
As an interior designer, I define function, I re-imagine space, I create and commission custom furnishings, I select materials, I select objects and works of art and I provide the organization necessary to secure all the moving parts. I’m creating a physical world in which the people that commission my work will live their lives.
Is there one person I hold close to me each day as I do what I do? One person who – by virtue of their choices – lives in both my work and daily routine? Absolutely. Gertrude Stein.
