What can I do for you? 

Like luxurious comfortable spaces, dramatically layered with rich textures and a mix of the unexpected? Then you’re going to love working with me. I enjoy designing spectacular, yet comfortable spaces for you and your family.

On my team, I have hundreds of vendors and custom products I use.  I know the people who can put back machinery to remake a fabric no longer in production, or create more fabric when not enough exists.  So you get exactly what you want.

When you’ve lived well in many different places, or you collect art, you have items you love to incorporate in your home. The home you were meant to have, to indulge all your senses, to luxuriate in.  I design actual products for my clients, that can be made by the vendors and makers I use, to bring to your projects. So you get exactly what you want, and then some.

Is it important to you, that your home is filled with sustainable products so there is no off-gassing? This supports your health and well being by living in a healthy environment. You can expect a layering in of some antiques. This adds grounding to a room.

There is a long line of service to the military, in our family, so our home and the homes of my aunts and uncles were filled with treasures from all over the world. And we moved around a lot, so I still have pieces that are important to me from these travels. Finally landed in McLean, Virginia Being aware of design from a very young age, I realized the best design is a timeless merging of fabrics, furniture, great art, and color –with life experiences, adding the spice.
