What’s your favorite room in the house?

I love to cook and I love to eat, so I’m always in the kitchen. I also love a challenge and good kitchen design is the ultimate puzzle.

How do you find a client’s authentic, personal style?

Layers, layers, layers. We are complex creatures with many different facets (I’m a mother, daughter, artist, vegan, Downton Abbey enthusiast). And when we honor what makes us unique—that’s when a style is born.

What element creates the biggest home transformation?

Knocking down walls? Nope. Ripping up carpet? Not even close. Adding a heart-shaped hot tub into your conversation pit? Ok, maybe, but not recommended. The answer is lighting. The way light changes a space is incredible. Don’t believe me? Go to any theater or movie set in the world.

What is your most unconventional inspiration?

I love looking into the natural world and finding beauty in something unexpected—flora, fauna, even insects!

Where did you last travel to find a fresh perspective?

I finally made it to Santorini, Greece. It was like walking in a dream. The lines, the colors, the tiles, the textured walls—pure magic.
