ASID, CID, LEED AP
I got my start designing multi-million dollar commercial projects ranging from a National U.S. luxury hotel brand to a prestigious, international university in Saudi Arabia.
The one thing these projects all had in common was the need to deliver a consistent luxury brand image across a variety of spaces, often requiring a look and feel that bridges cultures and continents. All while supporting the equally important human and practical needs of functionality and durability.
Today, I apply that same perspective to the homes of distinguished executives and professionals whose lives are driven by their careers and whose public-facing images are as important as their lifestyle needs at home.
Through the interior design experience, I help my clients have a home that tells the story of the lifestyle they’ve always imagined. A story that projects both the image they’ve worked so hard to build and the identity that gives them all they want out of life.
My Design Declaration
Design is for you, not the designer. At the end of the day, you have to love your space. It has to feel good to you, speak to you and provide the function you need.
Luxury should be livable and functional. Your space should make you proud. It should give you a feeling that you earned it, you deserve it and you’re worth it. Luxury should not and does not have to be sacrificed and neither does livability. What good is a chair if you can’t sit on it?
You can be yourself without sacrificing your image. Your home is not the office and your office is not your home, yet the two do intertwine. Your friends are your colleagues, you bring your work home, you’re relied upon for outside endeavors. Yet you want to be who you are and be fully engaged with your personal commitments. That requires a sense of ease, the ability to relax and full functionality, not fuss.
Your time is precious, my process is efficient. I want your life to be easy. You need a guide who is great with details but doesn’t bother you with every little one. Plus, you don’t have time for meetings for the sake of meetings. While each of our encounters is collaborative in nature, I carefully organize all the details ahead of time and present them in a way that shows you the what, the why and the value so you can make informed decisions quickly.
Be memorable, not trendy. Spaces can become dated quickly when based on trend. Good design stands the test of time. It balances what you’ve built with who you are and where you’re going.
