I have been a licensed professional for over 30 years and save my clients time and money from making costly mistakes! I have designed homes, small luxury hotels and offices nationwide, both remotely and on site. Check out some of my work on Houzz or my Linkedin page! Let me know what you think!
I love to help my clients create their dreams or meet investment goals! I enjoy the engagement of other professionals and the collaboration of experience to achieve the best value for the clients needs.

I like to talk with my potential clients to get an idea of what their goals are and then set up a meeting to see how I can best meet those goals.
I have a degree in Interior Design and Historic Preservation from George Washington University at Mount Vernon.
I received my NCIDQ professional licensing in 1986 and have had the pleasure of working on my own for the last 22 years.
I charge $175 per hour and offer 20% off retail for furnishing purchases.
I began working as a kitchen designer and lighting designer in my teens while I attended design school to prepare myself for the NCIDQ exam and ASID professional membership. I became design director for Laura Ashley and Ashley House hotels and then opened my own firm in 1994.
As design director for Ashley House, I was owner representative for Sir Bernard Ashley and incorporated his small luxury house hotel concept into 3 properties which were in the top ten Conde Naste list for over 10 years.
I have had the pleasure of working with remarkable clients building their dream houses and 2nd and 3rd homes. Now I am doing the same for their children!
I recently finished a fabulous home in Nantucket and had the pleasure of working with a wonderful architect Lisa Botticelli. Need to get this one published!
My best advice to a client regarding hiring a designer is to make sure it is a good match! Show the designer what your goals and dreams are in advance to ensure you are on the same page!
Clients should have a clear idea of where they want to be at the end of the day, both design conceptually, schedules and budget wise as well. Don't be afraid to communicate - this process should be about you!
