I have always loved design and interiors, colors, textiles and materials. I started in residential and my first project was in Bear Brand Ranch in Laguna Niguel. It was a complete remodel of a home. I really enjoyed my client and being able to take a project from conceptual design to a completely new interior. When the project was complete I designed my clients office in Irvine.

New construction, remodel projects, and small to large scale projects. I also help clients that are just looking to have a few items done in their home.

New and existing construction, furnishings, and we have many projects that are just selecting paint colors for the clients.

I designed a home in Costa Mesa, CA for a client with two children. It was a small home so we needed to be sure to fit everything in that the client needed. They also had a home office so we space planned their office to fit all their needs. I enjoyed working with their children to select their rooms. It was a fun experience for all.

I would advise a client to meet with designers they are looking to hire and discuss their project to find a perfect fit for them.

They should have an idea of the scope of work they want done and a budget number. When meeting with their designer they can confirm scope and budget amounts.
