“Ages ago when I was student at Parson’s, one of my teachers insisted that there was no such thing as bad taste – only things used incorrectly.
Now, many years later, I’d have to agree that there are many different types of taste and various levels of quality.
Furthermore, whatever your taste, the most important way to keep a project going in the right direction is to buy better, and buy less. That doesn’t necessarily mean that every item needs to be expensive, but what you buy should be well made, beautifully designed and appropriate to your lifestyle. And most of all: be fearless in your choices.”

“The lens through which I view each project is focused by the clients that will live in each space. I believe we must be open-minded about their idiosyncrasies, and to work with gusto to address the multiple layers of taste, need, desire and aspiration that they are seeking.
Design is not about trends, or specific styles. Becoming a design conduit for the story that my clients want to tell in their home, that is the ultimate goal. There is no greater final result than when our clients are as excited about the outcome as we are.”
