“Our environment has the power to influence mood and alter reality.”
When crafting an environment for my clients I like to embrace all of the senses. This to me, creates a space that can transport you to another time and place and in turn deepens the connection that my clients have with their home. I start with how each client wishes to feel in their surroundings, allowing me to better understand the aspirations of how they would like to live. Their daily routines and goals influence my choice of materials, fixtures, and flow of their floorplan. I strive to make my clients life easier and more engaging by utilizing architectural details that solve problems. Finding the perfect intersection between form and function.
