What is your number one design tip?
If you love it and have to have it, bring it home. It will reflect your unique style, and you can design around it or with it in mind.
You are best known for:
Designing rooms that completely reflect my client.
Your style in 3 words:
Eclectic, sophisticated, fun.
Your most treasured possession:
My Steinway baby grand piano. I first began taking piano lessons when I was 5 on this piano, which at the time was my grandmother’s. She gave it to me many years later. It has moved with me to many places. Now my son composes music on this same piano in our home.
My design aspirations began early on growing up in a family of interior and fashion designers. While in college studying business and design, I worked in merchandising management for Saks Fifth Avenue and then continued honing my design skills while traveling the globe planning new product and color launches for Erno Laszlo and then Lancome. Settling down in Berkeley with my own design studio in 2001 has allowed me to work on incredible projects like the SF Decorators Showcase to small apartments in New York and be featured in publications ranging from Sunset books, Garden and Interior Design magazines and many interior blogs including Design Sponge and Decorology. Every project, large and small, is a unique and personal process. My goal is to help you define and create an environment that comforts you by reflecting who you are and the way you live.
