Personal Design Shopper
I thrive at using my natural artistic talent and extensive diverse background to create harmonious uplifting environments. Assisting clients, designers, architects, and builders, I welcome and work successfully with a wide variety of styles and modalities by quickly grasping what you, the client, wants and needs.
This cozy Pacific Grove, CA bungalow needed a few specific elements to pull everything together. Adding colorful drapery side panels that incorporated two solid colored fabrics, coordinating pillows for comfortable design interest, and a custom double layer table cloth with fringe was just what was needed.
From the Ground Up
Design your floor plan so that you finally get that ideal dream home; a dramatic tub and space for that beloved piece of furniture that you pulled out of a distant relatives abandoned home. Create spaces that function perfectly and fulfill your passion perfectly for the way you live!
Honoring your uniqueness, I am passionate about creating joyful expansive spaces that speak to who YOU are. Masterfully working with color, patterns, design, and style I help you create an exquisite and tasteful environment that is representative of you and your family.
Mix colors, patterns, textures and accessories around the room in a way that makes your soul sing. The right proportions scaled to fit the space allows the eye to dance in perfect harmony. Create your own sanctuary; make it uniquely yours.
Positioning the baby grand behind the sofa created a more intimate gathering area for this world traveler's home in Carmel by the Sea, CA. This arrangement also took advantage of better Feng Shui energy and enjoyment of the fireplace. A small cocktail bar was then able to be added as well.
Always interested in the architecture and the structuring of spaces, I have assisted in designing artistic interiors in hundreds of homes and businesses, both new construction and remodel projects. I use a hands-on approach backed by years of creative experience starting with a BA in interior design and a MA in art. But it is my incredible intuitive sense of knowing what is needed, often before the client does, that has been my greatest gift.
One of a kind Tuscan home in Clint Eastood's Tahama development outside of Monterey, CA demanded a spectacular bay window treatment. The other windows in the room used the same fabric but required a completely different application. Everything pulled together beautifully, wouldn't you agree?
The ability to sketch an idea to present my concept to the client helps to visually clarify a proposed direction for a project. Working sketches help refine your ideas so that approval of the desired outcome can be easily agreed upon and realized.
The developer of Las Palmas Ranch, outside Salinas CA, had a very awkward area in the guest bedroom between the closet and wall. Their special wish was to create a whimsical space for grandchildren to enjoy. This inspired the canopied reading niche, the drawing of which illustrated the idea to the client and workroom. What a wonderful spot to isolate and fantasize. The canopy features a rose applicated voile semi-sheer fabric artfully combined with other fabrics throughout the room.
By first finding out from you your greatest whims and desires, I have the resources to assist you in manifesting your unique environment. I lovingly deliver with respect of your budget. Sometimes all it takes is simply adding creative design touches, other times what is requested or required is an entire make over. Enhanced utilization and ambiance of your space often raises the home value but always refreshes and enlightens the dwellers.
Diversity of these two projects below displays my adaptability to soundly meet your personal style.
