When I begin working with a new client, the most important thing I do, is take the time to listen. I listen with my whole being to the client, the space and my own sense perceptions. I pay particular attention to the qualities of light, color, texture, sound and mood. I am looking for what is working and what seems out of balance, as I discuss with the client their desires and unmet needs for the space.
I work collaboratively with the client to create an environment that feels like home to them, reusing and re-purposing existing furnishings and treasured belongings, along with any new purchases, to design a space that is uniquely their own. While I bring the expert eye of a trained artist and designer to the job, ultimately I strive to be a conduit for the client’s vision to be realized – for it is their space to enjoy.
It is my firm belief that there is a natural harmony possible between person, place and purpose that leads to a greater sense of well-being when it is found.
