One of the most important things for a designer to understand is how our client’s home SUPPORTS them, their lives, hobbies, interests, and time. 

During this Covid-19 Pandemic, many of us are learning a new way of living life right now, and for most of us, it means more time at home. It may even mean more time, in general. Life is moving into a new, unexpected direction; with that comes some confusion and uncertainty. 

With this newfound time, it might be easier to understand what your life craves.

For some people, a home provides stability, safety, and structure.

Structure, symmetry, and editing down your home design can offer a sense of sanctuary.

Other home dwellers may opt for inspiration, creativity, fluidity, and fun.

Whatever it is that you’re missing in your home, my job is not to have a distinct design style of my own. You already have that. My job is to bring your style out in functional way – using my knowledge of scale and space planning to create your haven.

My hope is to provide the foundation to create a space that supports this new way of life and allows you to live in it, fully.
