“Yes, the world has indeed changed with so many unknown choices and demands. Our dollars don't go as far,but We  want to live beautifully and still be able to enjoy new experiences.  Our ability to be flexible and change while keeping our values intact is challenging ”.

“I love well designed homes in any style now specializing in Mid-Century.  Every home should have rooms with signs of a life well lived that say, “Welcome”.  Rooms need to be timeless, comfortable and practical.  “It is not what you have, but what you do with what you have” and to achieve the best outcome in the shortest time for the least  amount of money.  Fill it with things you love and it will grow and evolve with you.  Your home must support who you are and what you like to do”.  As designer, it’s never the same twice.  The big payoff is when the client says, “I love it!”
