- What do you consider successful design?
Knowing I have empowered my clients to take ownership of their dreams, so they can say upon completion of a design project that it went beyond their expectations. More importantly, that there is no trace of my personality in their home – only theirs.
- How does your design process begin?
Listening. Actually hearing and seeing (through emotion) what clients need and want and being able to discern the difference.
- What do you feel is your responsibility as a designer?
To always provide functional, beautiful design and to continually keep clients informed throughout the design process enabling them to make decisions with confidence.
- Guilty pleasure?
Psych and Monk. It’s in the details!
