A: My favorite adjectives are classic, pretty, and liveable. I think if I check these boxes on all projects I’m doing really well!
A: I find inspiration everywhere – travel – books – magazines – other amazing talented designers – clients – it’s everywhere!
A: I always begin with what they love – what they want – what they need and build a plan from there. I love incorporating things that the client has that have meaning for them. If we start there we can’t miss.
A: Yes – very much so and that is my happy place……I am really comfortable with classics.
A: Nicky Haslam – his painted finishes and curtains are amazing. I love Charlotte Moss, Bunny Williams, Suzanne Rheinstein, Tom Sheerer. I think Jeffrey Bilhuber is a genius. I am devouring everything that Steven Gambrel is doing. I love the work of Ashley Whittaker, Amanda Nisbet, and Summer Thornton……plus I would like to have drinks with them!
A: I design for the client and the project. I have favorite greens, blues, pinks – but every project is different – so the color comes from the project and that is the reason that every project is individual and a wonderful challenge!

A: I start with elements the client loves – things with meaning – and I build a scheme from there – that makes my work so personal and that attachment forms a bond between the client and the interior that lasts the longest!
My favorite Bowood chintz, by Colefax and Fowler.
A: Grandchildren, family, and friends. I am also a voracious reader.

"I think you should buy things that are as good as you can afford. … I always bought the best [furniture] I could afford at the time. In so doing, I’ve gotten furniture that has been recovered many times. … Just like with clothes, if you want to do trendy, don’t spend a lot of money on it. … You don’t want to see all of the things you’ve spent good money on in everybody’s houses. … Your kids will grow up with things they come to treasure. Buy things that reflect you. Don’t just buy something to fill a space,"
