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.
