What’s your style? …it’s not about me, it’s about you.
As designers, we often get asked this question: “So, what is your design style?” While I do have a specific design aesthetic that I am drawn to; when working with clients, it’s not about me, it’s about them.
It is really about what my clients want, what they are drawn to, what they see as beautiful. My job is to observe closely and listen deeply in order to tease out the information I need to turn their wants into a vision and then a reality…a space they will fall in love with; beyond what they imagined possible and what they could never conceive themselves.
…But to answer the question, which I often get asked, “What is your design style?”.
My design aesthetic can be described as “Casual Elegance, Quiet Liveable Luxury with a Relaxed Vibe and a Hint of Edge”. If you are familiar with Interior Designers, respectfully, it’s Barbara Barry meets Kelly Wearstler.
Barbara Barry epitomizes all that is beauty. There is grace and refinement to all of her work, as well as a sense of quiet, understated luxury.
Kelly Wearstler is known for her bold and luxurious designs, which are masterfully raw and refined.
What draws me to these two designers are some of the commonalities I see between them: their relaxed vibe, how they draw from nature for their inspiration, their use of textural layers, how they incorporate various materials that have a a sensual and raw quality to them.. their work both inspires and awes.
….But it’s not about me, it’s about you, my amazing clients!
My design aesthetic will always come through, but I am not creating for myself. I am designing with the sole purpose of creating a beautiful, functional space that is uniquely yours. I am looking at beautiful pieces through your eyes. I am curating the most perfect furnishings just for you. Every element of the design is carefully developed based on an deep understanding of your personal style, your needs and wants.
….while it’s not about me, what you will always get from me is my genuine passion, dedication and thoughtful approach to creating a space that is authentically yours, a space that is reflective of who you are and how you want to live.
Seeing my clients’ reaction when they enter their new space for the first time; how overcome they are with emotion at the transformation; and how happy and appreciative they are; takes my breath away each and every time.
Thank you..to all of my wonderful clients…it’s all about you!
