However, Sarah's inspiration to become an interior designer derived from a young age, when she spent time with her father—who was a developer and builder for over 60 years—she observed the way he designed and built homes for his clients. As a result, she developed an early appreciation and a keen eye for the art of design and began to develop her own style.

Sarah's passion, attention to detail, ability to create seamless experiences for her clients and connect on a personal level are the keys to her success. Ensuring that every room she touches is transformed into an expression of its owner's personality and style she works closely with each of her clients to make sure that they are comfortable with every aspect of the design process — whether it's a small remodel or a high-end luxury home — She leaves a bit of her heart in every project she works on.
"I'm passionate about what I do, and I'm a perfectionist." she says, “I believe that interior design is more than just picking out furniture and color schemes— I love the way that it makes you think about every last detail – from space planning, lighting, smart home, custom millwork, etc. It's about making sure that everything comes together to create an environment that reflects your tastes and personality, from the beginning stages to the outcome. Accessories, fabrics and wallcoverings are the exciting add ons to complete a project. The ultimate finishing touch to create a beautiful home.”
