What first sparked your interest in interiors or design? I like to make my surroundings beautiful.

How would you describe your aesthetic? Luxe and feminine with a bit of edge.

What is a design trend you are loving at the moment? Scentscaping. I love how many of our clients have embraced the concept of utilizing different scents for different spaces. It allows for so much creativity.

Who are some of your favorite ‘secret’ sources for projects? I keep an eye out whenever I’m traveling.

Wallpaper or paint? Wallpaper

Antique or reproduction? Antique

What is your favorite color palette to use in projects currently? Classic blue

What is a timeless design moment that you think will never go out of style? Flowers and candles. They instantly elevate any setting.
