Approach to design
I believe Interior Design should reflect its' inhabitants and local environment; not the designer. I design first by addressing space, then functionality and ultimately by decoration. Decoration is not just purchasing colour coordinated homewares! It is selecting essentials and weaving colour, pattern and texture into each element from floor up. It is also the careful editing of your belongings. Sentimental items can and should be part of your design. Re-positioning or re-framing can be just as effective as a new item. Being a fine artist, I have an astute sense of colour as it relates to personality. I am passionate about matching people to their homes. Your room is my ultimate blank canvas!
