Optic Verve LLC
I design exteriors as well as interiors. Creating gardens are my passion, but what good are they if they are not accessible from the interior - visibly as well as physically? The two are intrinsically linked. I take pride in my unique way of seeing potential, as well as developing solutions that will enhance and expand the livability of your home, whether inside or out. I am an excellent space planner, and I have a hard time thinking inside the box. My solutions are not usually run of the mill, and I do not generally follow trends. Instead, I use all available parameters and criteria to create a functional, timeless design with staying power, suitable to its location, and representative of its owners preferences and budgets. I experience the world as space defined by color and contrasting textures, and I am a functional tetrachromat. As a complement to my website, I maintain two blogs. One - The Creative Flux - focuses mostly on design, materials and color, and was originally created to spread awareness of new sustainable building materials. The other - Flutter & Hum - is where I explore gardens and plants, as well as document landscape projects.
