“I believe every room should have contrast in color and scale, it should have pleasing proportions, it should meaningfully contend with color – understanding that color can change the character of a space, and that it all should be balanced.
Most of all, however, one’s interiors should be personal. They should reflect ownership and personal taste.”
“I approach my designs with a painterly eye: color, texture and light are the among the most important elements in a well-executed room.
I like a carefully edited approach to the final selection of furniture, fabrics and fixtures – as well as a rationally designed, comfortably functional floor plan. As Diana Vreeland famously said….”Elegance is Refusal”.”
“When designing a space the very first thing I think about is the mood of the room. Depending on the function and needs of my client, I question how we want to experience the room, how do we want to feel when we are in it?
Then I consider the elements I feel are essential to a well designed space – comfort and elegance achieved through careful consideration of layout, form, scale, colour and texture.”
“I think of life as a collective history, building on earlier choices and experiences.If one can inform their surroundings with personal interests and preferences, it becomes a more authentic place to live.”
