Who am I…

It is nearly impossible for me to walk into a room and not begin to see it’s beauty and hidden potential. Design is not something that I just do, it is part of who I am every day. It began at a young age when I was introduced to the world of interior design by my grandmother who sewed custom draperies. But as much as I loved all if the pretty soft things I would also watch episode after episode of This Old House and had my own tool station in my grandfather’s workshop.  I was not afraid to get some dirt under my fingernails, and still aren’t.

When I decided to make my love of design into more than just a hobby I attended New England School of Art & Design (NESAD) where I was challenged to think conceptually and intellectually about design and was exposed to the great masters throughout history.  I graduated in 2001 with my BFA (Bachelor of Fine Arts) in Interior Design and so began my career. I first worked in a small residential design firm on Newbury Street but quickly found that I wanted something more. That is when I entered into the specialized world of kitchen and bath design and I never looked back. Although I don’t just design kitchens and baths I truly believe that they are the two most important rooms in any house.  With the intrinsic difficulty of those design projects I found myself working with clients from all kinds of backgrounds and design savvy which makes me love what I do even more.  I saw that it is possible to remove the pretension often associated with interior design and offer design services for people who value intelligent, thoughtful and beautiful design regardless of their tax bracket.
