- What do you consider successful design?
Interior spaces are so much more than pretty places. I believes the space should feel good to those in it. It should reflect the owner in an organic way; planned so well it doesn’t look intentional.
- When did you know you wanted to be an interior designer?
As a young child probably around seven or eight, drawing floorplans on newspapers and cutting out furniture from the Sears and JC Penney’s catalogs to place in the rooms.
- How does your design process begin?
I believe in two way communication with my clients. From my over 35 years of experience, I’ve learned what questions to ask but have found those clients who take an active part in the process experience personal satisfaction and a superior result.
- What makes you different than other designers?
Nothing beats experience; I’m not “practicing” on my clients. I base decisions on past successes and failures. My insatiable need for knowledge and quest for the newest and greatest thing.
- Guilty pleasure?
Books, hundreds of books.
