Point of View


Among other things, design is a point of view.

The discipline of design is not confined simply by the world of interior design. Influences in fashion, architecture, film, art, theater, photography, travel and cuisine, and not too surprisingly, music all play into the designer's perspective. My point of view is one that is also influenced by history, culture, strong family connections, and by my clients.

So here lies my blog, dedicated to revealing the internal narrative that informs my perspective on design. I want to share with you my point of view on the fine art of creating a home ... of living with dedication to function and to beauty.

I hope you enjoy the read.

Without new experiences, something inside of us sleeps. The sleeper must awaken.

Colour and patterns have the ability to quickly transform a room and add instant personality. It is easy to spot a pattern and colour palette that is distinctly mid-century inspired, Asian, tribal or Celtic, yet homeowners are often afraid to make a bold statement using these great options. As the first things you notice whenRead More (…)

Let’s take those questions on and see if we can set the record straight. 1. What is a typical investment? Every homeowner we hear from startsRead More (…)

Couples rarely agree on everything, but there are fewer things that widen the marital divide than trying to agree on home furnishings when disparate tastes clash. Who doesn’t recall the famous wagon wheel coffee table scene from When Harry Met Sally? Note to many: Man caves serve a peace-keeping role in the saving of aRead More (…)

Design trends come and go; as a rule, interior designers aim to steer clients clear of them. But it is still good to know the trends, so we don’t have our clients buy into a quickly fading look. After all, when trends begin to gain traction and hit magazines and retail stores, they’ve already beenRead More (…)
