We would love to work with you!
I am passionate about COLOR, DECORATING, ART and TEXTILES that authentically highlight the personality of my clients and reflect their lifestyle.
Inspired by my own experiences with Interior Design, Art, Fashion, Textiles, Travel, Nature and all things beautiful, I will design a space utilizing all of these aspects. I see the beauty and inspiration in my surroundings and incorporate my designer eye into the styling of my clients space.
I have a discerning eye for Interior Decorating and an innate sense of Color which comes from years of high end Design experience. Fashion and Interiors are a reflection of our style and lives. I meld them together beautifully with my background, done so in a natural, effortless way.
Having spent many years creating design as a Senior Textile Designer/Colorist on 7th Avenue in New York City. NYC was the center of design, fast moving and where it all starts. This is where I began to see the beauty and design elements in everything around me. Museums of NY were my playground to enhance my design taste and work.
Working for everyone from Banana Republic to Calvin Klein is where I began to blend Print, Pattern, Color and Art. While working with Calvin Klein colors were muted and style was minimalist. This translates into a style of home decor which favors simplicity. While at other fashion houses, colors and print were bold and made a statement. This is often reflected in the personality of the clients, whose homes I decorate as well. I spend the time getting to know the personality of my client and their spaces and desires, then get decorating to match these.
I take these experiences and decide whether the Minimalist look is right or the Bolder approach with bright paint and bold prints. I LISTEN to the space and client, which is a special skill.
Having also traveled the world, From the amazing coast of Italy with azure seas to to the far reaches of Asian countries, color and pattern influences abound. I bring a strong understanding of many countries and how their colors and decor blend together.
Being certified in Feng Shui, I also am able to use this ancient art form to choose which special items should be placed in certain areas to create not only beauty, but more abundance in their lives.
It is my goal to make your story, the heart of your home, reflecting the best 'you' possible. To do so we need to hear your ideas to create your vision. Your home should reflect who you are, beyond your taste in throw pillows — it's about your hobbies, passions, direction in life and what makes you SMILE. We work out those details after careful listening and then put our AUTHENTIC energy and style into a final vision for your space.
Most homeowners know how their space should FEEL and LOOK; they simply don't know how to make it happen. And finally, we will return to the studio and begin the work of blending your hobbies, passions, and direction in life with the design details most authentic for your own space.
Allow us to transform your space so you can live a more beautiful, stylish and authentic life! Decorating and E-Design are our passions and we work diligently to make it all come together for YOU!
Being certified in the ancient art form of Feng Shui , I am trained to know what special items to place in certain areas for greater abundance in YOUR life.
Being an artist also, I create original artwork pieces specifically for your home. I also have access to many vendors which I can shop for pieces that will finish off the look for your space.
PRINT, PATTERN, COLOR & ART are keystones in our well decorated spaces.

With my training in Feng Shui, I can align your space creatively to bring in more of the things that matter most to you. Everything is made up of energy. Even the way we place accessories in a room to the colors to on a wall effect this energy. Feng Shui reveals how to balance the energies of any given space to assure health and good fortune for those inhabiting it.
Pronounced "fung shway," Feng Shui literally means "wind and water." Its roots are 5,000 years old. It seeks to promote prosperity, good health and general well being by examining how energy, qi, pronounced "chee," flows through a particular room, house, building, or garden. If your space has good Feng Shui vibes — healthy, uplifting, loving and nourishing, you will feel supported and happy. Everything will flow easier for you because this is the energy you are surrounded by and nourished most often. You can compare a good Feng Shui house to a piece of clothing that is really wonderful in all aspects — it is beautiful, comfortable, made of exquisite materials, etc.
