“Design is your opportunity to translate the epic beauty of nature, travel, and art into an everyday reality. It’s like creating a living story. One of my prime inspirations is Kelly Wearstler. She always pushes the envelope, and I venture to do the same with each design.” “This design is for a living room for a young professional woman who wanted a bit of Sherlock Holmes here and a dash of exotic influence there. We infused both of these with a romantic British Colonial style mixed with a few bold, modern patterns. A large Currey & Company chandelier reminiscent of branches brings a bit of twinkle and a natural element. The intricate Asian lines in the side table play well with the bold solid metallic of the cocktail table. The tufting on the Norwalk sofa lends some elegance, while the voluptuous curves of it instills a sense of femininity.”
