I help create interiors that are open, airy, sophisticated, yet restrained.

Renovating can often be an overwhelming experience, both in terms of time and expense. My role as a designer is to serve as a guide, so clients end up with a cohesive space that reflects their taste and needs, with a focus on quality materials and good craftsmanship.

We will make the process easy for you, from the creation of a detailed estimated budget at the onset, through the sourcing, purchasing and installation phases. If there are hiccups along the way -which can happen when construction and deliveries are involved- we will address the issues and come up with solutions.
