I work with color, fabric, furniture and fixtures that have been selected with my client’s taste in mind. I understand how to integrate proper building material and address, structural issues, functionality and efficiency when the situation calls for it while staying within the client’s budget.
In addition to the above, I make recommendations where all matters of design are concerned on restorations, interior design and décor, and new construction. (It is advisable to review floor plans before construction begins! However, I can begin work during any phase of planning or construction).
My design goals are for efficient environments by considering all the elements relevant to the room’s purpose and coordinate the available space by considering furnishings, fixtures, surfaces, lighting, traffic and workflow.
I know how to work with architects, contractors and a network of qualified builders and craftsmen.
My passion is for architectural features and interiors of fine older homes and commercial buildings. I often incorporate them in my work where approriate. Yet, I have a great love for barns, cabins, cottages, and other petites – be they historic, modern or rustic!
I have been blessed with an innate ability to conceptualize and visualize if, when and how re-structuring would be the path to take for optimum results. Redesign and renovation is a big part of interior design and I enjoy all aspects of interior decorating for the home or office as well.
