My love for Interior Design started when I was a child, moving and re-arranging furniture in my bedroom. I knew right then being a designer was what I wanted to do. I studied Interior Design at the British Columbia Institute of Technology, and began my career in 2001 in Vancouver, B.C. In 2005 I moved to San Francisco, gaining experience as lead designer at Wick Design, before establishing my own firm in 2010. I am a residential designer and interior stylist based in Lafayette, CA. I primarily work with clients in San Francisco and the East Bay. I believe good design comes from a collaboration with my client so that their home reflects their personal style. So often I hear, "I know what I like and don't like, I just don't know how to put it together!" Whether designing a room or an entire home, there are many things to consider when selecting the right colors, furniture, materials and finishes that it can be overwhelming. I can help by providing space planning and furniture layouts, budgets, sourcing furnishing, art/accessories, paint/wallpaper, window coverings, materials, fixtures and finishes, all based on the specific needs of your project and a plan to achieve your design goals, whether it is all done at once or phased out into several smaller projects. "If you want a golden rule that will fit everything, this is it: Have nothing in your houses that you do not know to be useful or believe to be beautiful." William Morris
