What is your idea of perfect happiness?

Winding down the day in a luxurious bubble bath.

What do you consider your greatest achievement?

I am proud of the business I have built. I began with an industry pivot and an opportunity, and I now have a thriving business built on my values with an incredible team where we get to do what we love every day.

What profession does your alter ego have?

My alter-ego would be a real-life CSI character, working in forensic criminology, solving crimes, and aiding justice.

The project you will never forget.

I will never forget our West Ruby Project because our client placed her greatest trust in us to elevate her home. Over the two years of the project, the more we worked, the more trust came, allowing us to make bolder choices. The trust of our clients means the world to us, and it is reflected in the end result. I’m proud of both the value of earning that trust and of the work we did to create an incredible home for our client.

Your favorite business tool or resource.

Keynote is our secret business tool. It allows us to present a layered visual of a room and to quickly bring an elevation to life.

The most timeless design.  

Classic California style is the most timeless design because it is based on a lifestyle — casual luxury, indoor/outdoor living, natural elements, light and bright environments, and clean open spaces. 

The biggest design faux pas.

Matching sets of furniture.

Your design motto.

Mix classic design with the unexpected to create spaces that are simultaneously sophisticated, functional, and edgy.

Our publisher, KOKET, makes statement décor; if you were to design a room around one KOKET piece, which would it be, and why?

The Neurotica Wall Sculpture is magic, and I would love to design MANY rooms around it. It is elevated, sophisticated, and unexpected; all of the words that drive our own design ethos, it’s a match made in design heaven.

Love happens when….

Your heart is open.
