Context is everything.
For over 20 years, my goal in every aspect of a design is to create a personal space that is unique to each client and that is lovely to the eye. A room is always best when built around something that a client is passionate about. It could be art or a meaningful family piece, or something that reminds you of a place you've been.
I often find inspiration for my work in the great country houses of England and France. Years and years of accumulated treasures add an old-world sophistication, but also a warmth that speaks of family life. I can make a beautiful room in any home; but spaces that reflect the inhabitants are the ones that truly stand the test of time.
