Designs are best when they are created spontaneously. It is important for me to create authentic, beautiful, passionate, elegant, intimate and timeless design.
Inspiration can start with a venue, to bring life to a room, to enhance existing architectural details such as a fireplace or window frames. Then I layer in ceiling height, natural light and statement furniture pieces.
I rely heavily on feelings to design. Working with the seasons such as embracing the quiet winter months to warm a room, or entice a sense of cosiness. Creating through emotions results in a completely individual style that is authentic and not easily emulated. How do I want to feel in the space, how can I reflect the mood - gentleness, calm, romance, nurturing and serenity. I think this quiet, organic style is my preferred design style.
