About this pro

I provide design/styling services as well as organizing/editing for your home or business. I have many years of experience as a visual merchandiser and space maker. My style is eclectic, emphasising natural materials and an aesthetic that feels alive, radiant and clutter free. That said, I strive to help you create a home that is a visual reflection of your personal style. We work together to find ways to integrate a new way of living into your space so that whatever we do, you're able to maintain it over time, and further that you feel truly at home. I am a certified feng-shui practitioner as well and bring that depth of understanding to every project. A project can take anywhere from a day to several months, depending on the needs of the client. My website has a portfolio of my work as well as more about what we do. http://golddustcollective.com

I enjoy most working with people. I love the myriad expressions of peoples lives and how integral the relationship between a person and their surrounding are. I get a high degree of satisfaction out of the transformational process of working with spaces and the issues that create dysfunction in them. And then there's making beauty for beauty's sake.
